* Partial Scholarship rate is awarded to self paying students who maintain 6 units or more, have an education plan on file, maintain a 2.0 grade point average and are in good standing with lab school participation hours.  Weekly censes of participation will determine continuance in the scholarship program. Monthly rates are levied dependent on income verification.

 

Charges are based on contracted hours and are paid whether the child attends the Center each day or not.  Childcare fees are paid monthly at the Cashier’s window in the Business Office prior to your child’s attendance.  Also required is a non-refundable yearly registration fee charged per child.  This fee may be paid once a year at the time of registration for the school year (arrangements may be made to pay per semester). The registration fee must be paid before a child’s enrollment in the center can be completed. 

The Registration & Materials fee is paid at the Cashier’s window in the Business Office.  The following chart illustrates the fee schedule for Registration.

4. What other requirements are there?

All parents who apply for the partial scholarship rate are required to participate as a parent helper in the lab 1½ hours weekly by arrangement and complete weekly lab participation sheets.  If this is your first year at the Center you must enroll in a Child Development course.

Register for CDEV 22 for 2 units…

 

5. Can I learn more about the educational philosophy and the program before I

    decide to enroll?

Yes!  Parents are always welcome to come by and observe the children and teachers at work and play.  Ask for a copy of the Parent Handbook to read about our philosophy, curriculum approach and program policies.  The teaching staff, director or front desk assistant can answer specific questions.

 

6. How do I enroll my child?

Come by the Child Study Center when you are notified of an opening.  You will pick up an enrollment form from the office assistant and set up an appointment to complete the application process.  You may call the office assistant at 439-2181, ext 3198 to verify an open position or make appointments to schedule enrollment.  You must complete the enrollment forms, pay the Registration & Materials fee and the first month’s tuition to finish the enrollment process and have a reserved spot in the Child Study Center.  Your child can begin attending the center 24 hours after all registration steps are complete.

          You will need:

  An updated immunization for each child you wish to enroll.

  A current Physician’s report on file no more than 30 days from date of enrollment. Completed yearly to meet California QRIS standards.

  Receipt from the Cashier’s Office for payment of Registration & Materials fee. First months tuition is due on Child’s first day of class.

  Copy of your current schedule of classes.

  Completed Income Verification form  (Gross Monthly Earnings)

  Optional: Educational plan, unofficial transcripts and continual weekly participation in child’s classroom if requesting partial student scholarship rate.

  Optional: Funded paper work with verification of enrollment in subsidy program. Must be completed before enrollment in Child Study Center.

 

    7.  How do I schedule childcare? Waiting lists open each semester 4/1 and 11/1

You may reserve child care space for the morning, afternoon or full day as space and program allows.  You will sign a contract to reserve these time blocks for your child for every week of the semester.  Follow these guidelines:

  Children attend the Center on a fixed weekly schedule.  Once you contract for certain days each week, you are charged for those hours whether your child attends or not.  Extra hours may be arranged ahead of time with your child’s teacher if class size allows, but no “drop in” care is available.

  Children are scheduled to attend the Center in morning, afternoon or full day blocks of time

  Children must be dropped off and picked up promptly at their scheduled times.  Early drop-off and late-pickup fees are charged ($1.00 per minute).

  The Center must be notified in writing (use a “Change of Schedule/Withdrawal Form”) of any schedule changes. Schedule changes may occur at the first of each month with at least two weeks written notice.  You must formally change your schedule or withdraw from the program to avoid continued billing for a reserved childcare space.

 

PLEASE NOTE:  Dropping classes DOES NOT withdraw you from the Center.  You MUST file a “Change of Schedule/Withdrawal Form”, even if your child stops attending the Center, before you will stop incurring child care charges.
