We will respond to all inquiries. After receiving your email requesting enrollment and your deposit, we will confirm that a spot is open and email you directions for setting up a School Cues account, after which the rest of the contact and emergency information/permission forms can be filled out on School Cues by the parent.
If for some reason there was no slot available to your child, we will return your check for September tuition. We will refund $75 of the registration fee. We will not refund any payments unless we have no slots available in your child's age level classroom.
