* 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 in the spring semester.


Register for CDEV 22 in the spring semester 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.

    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:

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.
