Enrollment and Withdrawal Deadlines

For early registration (Feb–May of current year), the last month’s tuition for the upcoming school year will be due on June 1 of the current year. This is the only way to hold your spot in the preschool. We will consider the position in the class available if payment is not received. One reminder note will be sent out in May. After June 1, only those who have paid the May tuition payment will have a guaranteed spot, due within 30 days of registration.

If you withdraw your child from class between June 1 and August 14, consideration will be given to refunding the last month’s payment only if we are able to fill your child’s spot in the program before classes begin.

If you withdraw your child between August 15 and September 30, no refund of tuition will be given. If you withdraw your child from class anytime after September 1, and give 30 days’ notice, you may use this payment (May) as your final month’s tuition.
