Tuition Obligation: I understand that enrolling my child in Estrella Mountain Preschool means I am enrolling for the entire school year. For your convenience, the full school year tuition has been divided evenly over the 10 months of school so the amount is the same regardless of start/end date, number of weeks in the month, holidays, or breaks. MONTHLY TUITION IS DUE AND PAYABLE THE FIRST SCHOOL DAY OF EACH MONTH (AUGUST - MAY.) Tuition paid by cash or check is considered late and will be subject to a late fee of $25 per week if received after the 15th of the month. If my child will not be in attendance for a month or part thereof due to illness, travel or vacation, I understand that I am still responsible for the full payment for that month.
Withdraw Policy: All withdrawals must be in writing addressed to the Director two weeks prior to removal. All payments are due and payable prior to child’s last day at school. All monies paid up to the date of withdrawal are non-cancellable and non-refundable. I understand that I am obligated to pay tuition for the last two weeks after notice to withdraw.
Late Pick-Up: Pick-up is at 12:00 pm, 1:00 pm or 2:00 pm (depending on program enrolled in.) If I or my designated pick-up is late to pick up my child will be taken to the Bracket Care classroom and a $10 late fee will be charged. Any late pickups on Mondays or Wednesdays will be subject to a $25 late fee Charge.
Toileting: Preschool and Pre-K students must be fully toilet trained by the start of the school year - this includes verbally indicating when they must go to the bathroom, wearing underwear (no pull-ups), as well as having the ability to independently wipe/clean up and dress/undress with little assistance. If a child has 2 accidents within a month, their enrollment will be suspended after the second accident and they may not return to school until they have been accident free for two weeks or have learned to vocalize when they must go. If they have an additional accident after they have returned, their enrollment will be suspended until the next school year.
Sick Policy: I understand that if my child should become ill during the day, I will pick up my child immediately or plan for an authorized emergency contact person to pick up immediately. The child will be removed from the classroom to prevent further infection and will be in the Director’s office.
If my child has been sent home with a fever/throw-up/diarrhea or been sick the night before or morning of school, they may not return to school for at least 24 hours. If child informs us they have been sick the evening of or morning before school, we will call you immediately for pick-up.
Discounts/Scholarships: A 10% discount will be offered to any active military family or family enrolling two or more children. Only one discount per family. This year there is no discount for full payment-sorry!
I have read this agreement in its entirety and agree to follow the written policies and procedures of Estrella Mountain Preschool. Once signed, this agreement will constitute a binding contract.
