Admission

Application Procedure

Application Forms are available throughout the year for the coming September. Parents may pick-up a form or request a form by mail. We requestthat all forms be returned to the school by the end of January. Starting in February, we begin the process to determine our enrollment for the coming September. At that time, parents will receive a registration packet if we have an opening for their child. The registration form and $100.00 non-refundable registration fee is due by the end of February. If we do not have sufficient space, parents are sent a letter of regret and are kept on the waiting list. Our school capacity is mandated by the State Office of Child Care Services.

Tuition Rates 2016-2017

The tuition rates are calculated by counting the number of days your child attends school and divided equally over the 10 month school year. Tuition payments are due on the first of the month August - May.

The payment schedule helps the school maintain a predictable budget and orderly bookkeeping. Please be aware that holidays and vacations have been eliminated when the calculation was made.

When a child follows the half-day schedule stays past the 11:30 a.m. dismissal time, the rate per hour is $7.50, which is due and payable on that day or at the end of that week. Please note the full rate applies for any fraction of the hour the child stays over.

Make all checks payable to the CARMELITE SISTERS. If payment is made in cash, please put money in an envelope and write your name on it.

For families with two children in our school, a 10% discount in tuition will be given for the second child.
