Hours of Operation

The Center operates 7:00 am - 5:30 pm and Nursery Hours: 7:15 am - 5:15 pm, Monday through Friday. Our Day Care Program is open year round to meet the needs of working parents. We define Day Care as those children who regularly stay for a nap or rest. Our Enrichment Program runs from September to June. We follow the Lemon Grove School District calendar in regard to all holidays, starting dates and ending dates.

During the summer we offer lots of fun activities. Water Play Days and Special Guests, such as CYT, are just some of the exciting things your child will be able to participate in. Parents with children in our Enrichment Program and our SAC Program may choose to extend their contract to include this time.

Admission Policy

Our school is open to children 6 weeks to 11 years of age. No child shall be excluded on the basis of race, color, religion, or national origin. An interview with the parent by the Director will be required before enrollment is completed for a new student. All forms, fees, and tuition are due before the child may start attending school.

After the initial interview and during the child's first weeks at the Center, we will evaluate the child's adjustment. We reserve the right to drop a child from the program if we feel the child is not emotionally ready.
We do accept children into our program who are not potty trained.

Parent Information

Students can join our program at any time. A Registration Fee will reserve your child a place in our program. This fee is non-refundable. If the child drops from our program temporarily and wishes to re-enroll, you must pay the returning student registration fee. For our yearly Fall Registration, continuing students will be offered first registration privileges.

• Brightwheel:
The email address you provide on your Pre-Registration form will be used to invite you to the childcare app Brightwheel. This incredible app allows you to receive alerts from the Director, reminders about school closures, and tuition statements. You will also be in direct contact with your child’s teacher, enabling you to receive pictures and updates on your child’s day. Teachers will send messages during a time that is best for the children, typically during nap time.

• Financial Policies:
To maintain a high-quality educational program for your child, it is necessary that tuition be paid for the days your child is enrolled. Our staff is hired on the assumption that your child will be in school. If he/she was absent and payment was not made for that day, our financial structure would be upset. In order to be fair to the parents, as well as protect our own financial structure, the following policies have been set:
• Tuition:
Tuition is payable as defined in the Parent Contract. If tuition is delinquent by more than two weeks, your child may be dropped from the program unless prior arrangements have been made with the Director.
Tuition is the same for weeks with holidays. Tuition is due and payable according to the conditions of the contract whether the child is present in school or not. Children enrolled in our Pre-School Program may attend on holidays that we are open at no extra charge. Children enrolled in our SAC Program follow the school calendar presented by the Lemon Grove School District. If their elementary school is closed, our School Age Program is closed as well.
A cost-of-living increase can be expected yearly. New rates would not go into effect until September of each year. There will be no mid-year increases. These increases are under the advisement of the Preschool Board and authorized by the Board of Elders of the Church.
• Refund/Credit:
There are no credits, refunds, or deductions for the following: registration fees, absences, holidays or, vacations. If you wish to withdraw your child from our school, we request two weeks written notice. This will entitle you to a refund of the appropriate tuition amount. If a two-week notice is not received, tuition will not be refunded.
• Unexpected Closure:
After the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020, we have created the following protocol regarding tuition billing and involuntary closing of our center, or the closing to certain clients, such as non-essential workers, at the discretion of the government: Tuition for the remainder of the month is still due. In the event of a second month of closure, half tuition will be due to hold a student’s spot. After three months tuition is no longer due if your student is no longer attending but notice of permanently dropping is required.

• Tuition Discount:
For families with more than one child enrolled, a 10% discount will be given on a second child and will be based on the lower of the two tuitions. A 10% discount will be given to active members of CCLG, or when one custodial parent is active-duty military or first responder. You may only use ONE discount.

• Extended Care Fees:
If needed and space allows, extended care is available at the published rate for time beyond your regularly contracted hours. The extended care forms are available in your child’s room and in the office and are to be filled out at the time you bring your child to school.
If you find it necessary for your child to attend an EXTRA DAY that they are not regularly contracted for, you must first talk with the Director.
