What is Required for my child to join any drop-off program?
To join the drop-off program, a child must be three and must be potty trained. For the school-year drop-off program, a child must turn three by September 1 of the school year, e.g. a child must be three by 9/1/19 of the 2019-2020 school year. Similarly, the child must be 3 by 7/1/19 for the 2019 summer session. (There is flexibility on this; contact us for more details.)
Enrolling in the school year also requires a non-refundable deposit. For one child, the deposit is $1,000. For two or more children, the deposit is $1,500.
Why is your deposit non-refundable?
The Forest Playschool is a very small organization with a very tight budget. An unfortunate fact is that parents of young children are often early in their careers, and so sometimes change jobs and move around. If we were able to return all money to families whenever someone moved, we would have a very unstable cash-flow, and would not be able to adequately plan our finances. We recognize this is a big commitment, but have implemented this policy for the stability of all the other families relying on the Forest Playschool.
