Your spot will be given to someone on our waitlist and your name will be placed at the bottom of that list. After May 4th any waitlist student who becomes eligible will have 2 weeks to complete registration and payment to maintain a spot in Grove Children’s Preschool.
What do I need to complete registration?
You will need your child’s birth certificate, 3 proofs of residency, and the other forms that will be included in your acceptance packet. If possible, we ask that we have a current physical exam form completed for your child by registration. We are also asking that parents pay the first month’s tuition of $345 at registration which will be applied to the following September’s tuition payment.
If we are a Community family, when is our tuition due? Can we pay for a semester or the whole year ahead of time?
It is due on the first of every month and pays for the following month. For example, September 1st payments pay for October programming costs. Yes, you can pay as far in advance as you would like.
