Kindergarten Enrollment 2014/2015

 Dear Interested Kindergarten Families,     

                                        

 

 Pierce School Extended Day, Inc. is strongly committed to allowing as many families access to our program as possible while maintaining a safe, quality program childcare center. We have been working hard over the past several years and studying our enrollment patterns, along with doing long range planning for our organization.

 

 Below is an explanation of how we plan to conduct our Kindergarten enrollment for the 2014/15 School Year and other important information regarding our program admission.

 

 

 

                          KINDERGARTEN ENROLLMENT

 

 Next year’s Kindergarten class will be capped at 28 children per day with a staffing pattern of three Teachers per day and one Teacher’s Aide.  These spaces will be filled with the following preferences given:

 

 Sibling Preference- any family who currently has children enrolled in the PSED program will receive preference over new families wishing to enter the program. 

 

 

 

Please note:  If more families enroll in the PSED Kindergarten program than we can accommodate, after granting sibling preference, we will hold a lottery to determine who gains admittance to the program.  This lottery will be held on Friday, March 14 and families will be notified the week of March 17 of the results.

 

 

 

 

 

All Kindergarten Initial Applications are due by Wednesday, March 12, 2014, along with an application fee of $25 and a deposit. The deposit is equal to one full month’s tuition (depending on how many days per week your child will be enrolled, refer to the enclosed Fee Schedule for amounts).  The deposit is applied to June 2015 tuition.

The Applications for PSED enrollment will be available at the Pierce School Kindergarten Registration on Tuesday, February 11 and Wednesday, February 12 or by contacting the PSED office after February 11.

 

 Checks should be made payable to PSED and mailed with the Application Form to:

 

 

 

PSED

 

PO Box 470444

 

Brookline Village, Mass. 02447

 

 

 

 Enrollment packets will be distributed in early June and are due back by

 

June 20, 2014.

 

                                               

 

 OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 

 

 Dropping and Adding Days

 

Any family wishing to drop days may only do so on the two dates that have been designated by the PSED Board of Directors as Change of Schedule Dates (October 1st notification for a November 1st start and February 1st notification for March 1st start). We will be asking families to make a firm commitment to the days that they are requesting and holding them responsible for paying for those days, that they are requesting and holding them responsible for paying for those days even if they decide to take their child out of the program for a day or two during that period of time.

 

 

 

Older Sibling Enrollment

 

Any family who wishes to sign up older siblings, along with their kindergarten child should indicate this when enrolling their kindergarten child.  PSED cannot guarantee that older siblings will be admitted to the program, as availability of space varies from classroom to classroom.  Once a Kindergarten child is accepted into the PSED program we will either accept the older children into the program if space allows or move them to the top of our waiting list and accept them as soon as a space becomes available.

 

 

 

 Re-Enrollment Policy

 

All families who are re-enrolling in the program for the next school year 2014-2015 are only guaranteed the number and specific days they are currently enrolled for. Any family wishing to add or switch days for the following year may do so, only if space is available on those days. If there is no space available, they will be placed on the waiting list for those days where they will have priority over any new families wishing to enter the program. 

 

 Please feel free to ask the directors if you have any questions or need further clarification on any of these polices.

 

 Thank You,

 

 Jean Day
