Step #1: Fill out the Pre-Enrollment Form
Parents are given a link to a list of questions for parents to fill out when inquiring about our program. This form gives us an idea of what your specific childcare needs are. Once the form is submitted, we will email the parent a tuition quote.

Step #2: View our Introduction Video
Once we receive your Pre-enrollment form, we will send the tuition quote along with the link to watch a virtual tour of our preschool. The video will introduce you to our owner and staff.
Step #3 Parent/ Provider Interview
An appointment is scheduled when parents are ready to come in to meet the staff. This meeting is scheduled after business hours. The purpose of the interview is so you can get a chance to get to know the owner and staff and address any concerns. I will briefly go over a few policies. This meeting usually lasts an hour. We will have snacks and toys to keep your little ones busy while we talk.

Step #4 Enrollment Packet
Once you are ready to enroll your children, you will fill out and turn in the Enrollment Packet. This packet contains all enrollment forms. All forms must be filled out for enrollment. I generally allow No More 1 week before returning the forms. Parents may receive the packet at the interview for an Application Fee of $10 or download it online for free. The link will be given to parents before the interview.
Step #5 Enrollment Fee
Along with your Enrollment Packet, an Enrollment Fee will be due. This fee is equivalent to one week of attendance. The fee will be credited to your child's last week of attendance. The fee is due 7 days before your child's first day of attendance. The purpose of this fee is to hold your spot, to buy supplies needed for your children, and for assurance that you are serious about your decision to enroll your child. If enrollment is denied, the enrollment fee will be refunded within the same week.
Both the Enrollment Packet and Enrollment Fee are due a week (7 days) before the first day of attendance. The spot for the child/ren will be held, the papers will be reviewed. The parents will be contacted to set up the first day of attendance. the spot will not be held longer than 2 weeks.
STEP #6 Virtual Parent Orientation
Once the enrollment forms and Enrollment Fee is submitted are returned and the child is accepted into the program, we will schedule a virtual meeting to briefly discuss the policies and procedures needed. Parents will be given a link to attend the Zoom meeting. The meeting will be no more than thirty minutes. This meeting will be scheduled at least two days before the first day of preschool.
STEP #7 First Weeks Payment
The payment for the 1st week will be due the Friday before the first day of attendance. All payments are pre-paid on Friday and go toward the following week of attendance.
The first 2 weeks' of attendance will be the Adjustment Period. The parent signs an Adjustment Period Contract. This contract is a probationary period to make sure our program fits the needs of the child.
Some behaviors we monitor during those first 2 weeks:
- How well the child does with the other children.
- If the child experiences separation anxiety. How long does the child's sadness last within each new day?
- Are we able to support the child's emotional needs?
- Does the child respect the staff, children, self, other parents, and preschool property?
- Can the child adjust to daily routines without causing much distraction or disorder?
- How well does the parent receive information from the staff?
- Does the parent give positive feedback when speaking with the staff?
- Are we able to ease the parents' separation anxiety?
- Does the parent get involved in helping the child adjust to the new environment?
- Does the parent respect the polices such as drop off and pick up, making payment on time and in full, making sure the child is well-rested and healthy enough to have a balanced day?
If anytime during the first 2 weeks the parent decides to end the contract, they may do so with a written notice.
Rashawn has the same right to end the contract with written notice. Any time paid for but not used will be refunded along with any money paid towards the Enrollment Fee. Parents will be informed before the 9th day if the child will be accepted or denied enrollment.
When children are accepted they will be placed on the roster and a Welcome Package which includes copies of enrollment forms and policy descriptions will be sent to you.
