The School Calendar Year

Bree’s Creative Learning Preschool, Childcare Center classroom is based on a calendar year. Center will be open Monday-Friday from 6:00 am-5:30 pm not to include federal holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Memorial Day, and Labor Day. The core instructional program is 9 hours per day and must not exceed those hours in a day.

Parent's Responsibilities

There is a $65.00 enrollment fee due at the time of enrollment. Payments are due on the date that the Parent and Owner agree to which they shall sign a contract on the Consent to Payment Plan Form. Parent will be charged for the whole week if the child is present TWO or more days. If the child is present for one day, there will be a HALF payment due for the week. There will be a Late Charge of $35.00 added to payments that are paid Late. It MUST be understood that to hold your child’s slot, payment must be paid weather your child attends or not. All Payments are based on your Contract, Not Attendance.

If your child is picked up late, there will be a late charge of $35.00 and $1.00 for every minute late after (unless prior arrangements have been made with Owner). If there is a pattern of being late, a late charge of $1.00 for every minute late will be added regardless of arrangement made.

In order to keep sickness down and spreading germs, if your child has any of the following symptoms listed below your child will not be able to return to the center for a completed 24 Hours upon seeing a Doctor and having a signed Doctor’s note stating when it will be safe for them to return.

  • Sign of COVID-19
  • Green/Yellow Mucus
  • Fever
  • Pink Eye
  • Respiratory Infection
  • Diarrhea
  • Throwing Up

Our facility follows guidelines from the CDC pertaining to COVID-19.

You will be notified immediately to come and pick up your child and have him/her seen. We must consider the health and safety of all of our children and staff.

Every child must be signed In and Out. There must be a signature beside every child’s name and the signature must be readable. If you have more than one child at the facility, you MUST put your signature so it can be read for each child.  

The first Two Weeks will be regarded as a Trial Period, in which case either party may terminate the contract without notice. After the first two weeks of enrollment, a two-week written notice from parent or provider is required to terminate the contract, with the exception of gross misconduct on the part of the parent, provider, or child. This is grounds for immediate discontinuation of service. In cases of non-payment, legal action may be taken, and the parents will pay all legal fees incurred.

If you will no longer be needing our services before your child turns four years of age, a 30-day advance notice needs to be given to the owner. This helps us tremendously. When the center is full, we are forced to say no to all incoming requests for childcare. If we have advanced notice of discontinuation of needed services, then it is possible for us to make future arrangements with new families inquiring about childcare for their child.

It is important that you follow of our policies and procedures. Not following these policies/procedures will result in you for fitting your child’s slot in our center and with just cause for immediate termination of services and you will then be in violation of your Parental Agreement. If you do not understand something, have a concern, or you feel uncomfortable with one or more of our policies and/or procedures, it is important that you express that to us before enrolling your child in our center. We are always open to suggestions and feel communication is a very important part to the quality of our center. If there are any problems or concerns in the future, we encourage you to talk to us about them. If a lengthy discussion is needed, a time that is convenient for both of us will be scheduled, as the other children will need our attention during business hours. Thank You for the opportunity to work with you and care for your little one. We look forward to a future of keeping your child smiling and safe.

Regular school attendance is a component to a child’s academic success. Children who do not attend on a regular basis, are routinely late, or routinely leave the program early may be disenrolled. In addition, children who are late, leave early, or are absent for ten consecutive days without a medical or other reasonable explanation must be disenrolled from the program.

Students arriving late should be signed in by a parent before admittance to class. If a child is to be picked up early, please send a note to the teacher that morning. When possible, medical and dental appointments should be made outside of school hours. Please schedule extracurricular activities such as gymnastics, dancing, etc. after school hours so as not to interfere with your child’s school day.

For the safety of your child, the parent or authorized person must come to the classroom designated area and sign the child out. A picture ID will be required if the staff does not know the person requesting to check the child out of school.

Children may be disenrolled from the program if they are hurting themselves or others and/or are chronically disruptive to the extent that they are not benefiting from the program.

Disenrollment of a child for behavior reasons is the last step taken after all other attempts to help the child within the program have been exhausted.
