Enrollment

Dear Parents,

Admission into our program is open to children ages 2 to 6. Applications and enrollment are accepted without regard to race, color, religion, creed, gender or national origin.

Enrollment is on a first-come first-served basis. There is a $150.00 non-refundable Registration fee for each Child. This is a one time only fee with continued enrollment (including summer).

Creative Beginnings is a year-round school, however we offer two different programs during the year. Our regular School Year program starts from September 1st till June 15th.
Summer Program starts on June 16th and ends on August 31st. Parents have the choice of sending their children for school program and/or the summer program.

An initial registration conference is required in order to complete appropriate forms, discuss policies and procedures of the center, and answer any questions you may have about the program. This conference must be scheduled in advance with the director. Parents are encouraged to bring their child to the conference to participate in activities, meet center staff and other children, and become familiar with the classroom and playground equipment.

Most children feel more comfortable in the program having had this initial short visit while the parent is with him or her. Please plan to spend about 45 minutes so you and your child have time to observe and explore in addition to the tour given.

Enrollment forms (signed contract) with half of first month’s tuition as deposit are required at time of registration. The remaining of first month’s tuition is due on first day of enrollment.

All children, including those presently enrolled must reapply each school year.

In March of each school year, a letter with new tuition rates will be sent asking parents if they would like to enroll again for the following year.

If a child must be withdrawn from school, a minimum of 30 days notice is required.

Without the advanced notice, tuition payment will be required on a pro-rated basis. Creative Beginnings reserves the right to cancel enrollment of any child for unsatisfactory behavior or for medical reasons for which the center does not have the expertise to provide appropriate care. Any unused tuition will be refunded if Creative Beginnings requests that a child be withdrawn. Children with “Special Needs” will be assessed and referred to the appropriate agency for assistance.

We look forward to seeing you all this year.

If there is any question feel free to call at (408) 559-3247.

Sincerely,
Nelly Tuman
Director
