ELIGIBILITY

Creation Corner does not discriminate against students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin, or social status for admission.  Creation Corner is a church sponsored preschool program founded on the principles of Christian faith.  Substantial disagreement with school policies or philosophy is sufficient for dismissal of a student after enrollment.

PROGRAMS

TODDLERS THROUGH TWO PROGRAM

Children ages nine months through two years are eligible for the two-day a week program which meets Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  Parents may choose the one-day a week option.  Enrollment is open to the community.  The class for children 9 - 18 months will only be offered if enrollment warrants.

THREES THROUGH PRE-K PROGRAM

The three-day program operates on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and is available only to children who have attained the age of three by the first day of the current school year.  Based on availability, parents of children 3, 4, or 5 may choose the two day option (Tuesday and Thursday only).

ENROLLMENT

       To enroll, parents must complete an application form for their child and submit the non-refundable registration fee.  Class assignments are made based on the date the application is received and the availability of openings for a given age, and confirmation of placement will be received from the Day Director.  If a child is not immediately placed within the program, s/he will be held on an active waiting list for the first available opening.  Children applying mid-year will be placed as openings arise, and they monthly tuition is due on the first day of attendance.

     A student registered and accepted in full-time enrollment is registered as a permanent student attending each week.  Enrollment forms and health forms must be completed and turned in by July 1.  When all permanent slots are filled, a waiting list will be established for each class.  Parents will receive an introductory call from the child's teacher in early August.  This is an opportunity for you to share information about your child which will prepare the teacher to best meet your child's individual needs.  Parents may contact the teachers or day director at any time during the year.

ANNUAL RE-ENROLLMENT

     Children currently enrolled are required to re-enroll every school year.  During enrollment, priority will be given to current students and their siblings.  Re-enrollment dates will be published in the Parent Newsletter.

WITHDRAWAL

     In case of withdraw, a two-week written notice is required.  Tuition fees will be refunded after the two-week notification.

FEES

       A non-refundable registration fee of $65 is due when registration papers are submitted ($registration is $35 for church members).

       Monthly tuition is assessed at the cost of $25 per day of attendance.  The monthly rate of tuition varies based on the number of days in session for a given month, and a monthly tuition schedule will be published each year.  Tuition is not waived for days missed due to illness or vacation.  Tuition will be waived in cases of closure for inclement weather (follows O'Fallon District 90).

       A late fee of $15 will be assessed to accounts not paid by the 10th of each month.
