Visiting our Facilities
We encourage all new families to come visit us at our annual Open House on Friday, February 7, 2020 from 5:30 – 7:30pm. Thereafter, new families are encouraged to call and come for a tour of the facilities. Appointments for tours can be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Facilities tours are available at 6:00pm once a week by appointment only. At the time of the tour, families may visit classrooms and speak to the head teachers and ask any questions they have about our program. We are happy to share tuition information to our visitors.
We will notify families about their status in our program by Friday, April 3, 2020. Tuition invoices for the August/September 2020 period will be sent to families who have been accepted via email by mid-June 2020.
These invoices must be paid by July 15, 2020 as the final step in the enrollment process. Families who fail to pay the first month’s tuition by July 15, 2020 will lose their spot in our program. Tuition invoices will be sent home via email on a monthly basis thereafter.
Please note that once the first tuition payment has been made, families have until August 1, 2020 to withdraw from our program and get a full refund on that tuition. No refunds on tuition will be granted for families withdrawing after August 1, 2020.
Refund Policy for Waitlisted Students
REFUND POLICY FOR WAITLISTED STUDENTS
Families who register with us before March 31 and do not get a spot in our Fall Program have a few options:
Families will be notified April 3, 2020.
Between April 3 and May 1, 2020, families may reduce or withdraw the number of weeks of summer enrollment and be placed on our waitlist with full refund for cancellations (minus a $35 per summer week cancellation fee). Cancellation of weeks maybe cause students to drop in their standing in the waitlist.
After May 1, 2020, summer camp refunds will be treated the same as regular summer camp refunds (see below)
Families on the waitlist before May 20, 2020 may request refund of registration fee (minus $20 admin fee) until August 20, 2020.
Families who register after May 20, 2020 and end up on the wait list have 90 days from the date of payment to request refund of registration fee (minus $20 admin fee), if they are not granted a spot.
If at any time in the process, one sibling is granted a spot and the other is not, and the family chooses to withdraw, there is no refund of registration fee.
