Food: For safety reasons, Millbrae Nursery School is a no-nut facility at all times. No kind of tree nuts can be brought on the premises, even during non-class events. Children with special diets (such as vegetarian) or children with food allergies or sensitivities can be accommodated during lunch and snacks. We do ask the parent to supply a food to substitute (for example gluten-free bread) we can give, in case there is no alternative.
Registration Fee: A non-refundable registration fee of $100.00 will be paid by each family enrolling in Millbrae Nursery School. This fee includes insurance and is based on the school year September through June.
Family Discounts: There is a 20% enrollment discount on the second and subsequent child in one family. This applies only to tuition.
Siblings during work days: You may bring one sibling under 2 years old or over 7 on your parent workday, subject to approval. Check with the teacher to clear this prior to bringing in a sibling. Siblings 2 years old or older are billed the extended care fee, and they also need to be approved by the teacher if space is available.
Attendance: Children 2 years old are required to attend a minimum of 2 days per week. Children 3 years old are required to attend a minimum of 3 days per week.
Participation: This is a co-op nursery school that relies upon the participation of the members to operate. Parents are required to participate in all cooperative obligations; including but not limited to weekly workday, snack program, parent member meetings, maintenance, service hours, parent education meetings and participate in fundraising unless they have elected to not participate in one or more areas and are paying the buyout fee as listed on the tuition schedule.
Extended Care: Extended care is at the rate of $12.00 per hour if scheduled prior month or $14.00 per hour for drop in care and is payable at the beginning of each month for reserved slots and for drop-in extended care. Children will be charged $3 per meal for breakfast, lunch or after school snack .
Withdrawal/Change of Schedule: Families must give four weeks notice in writing prior to requesting a schedule change or when withdrawing their child from school. Families wishing to return after withdrawing are not guaranteed a space and must pay a new registration fee and deposit applicable to new enrollees. Families who wish to change their schedule are asked to request the schedule change prior to the 25th of the current month to make changes to the child’s upcoming attendance schedule.
Holidays/Missed Days: Tuition is continuous throughout the school year (taking into account the days the school is closed) and guarantees a reservation for your child at the School for the 10-month School Year designated on the School Calendar. No credit will be given for holidays, student absences or illnesses. Holidays for the School Year are shown on the School Calendar given to enrolled families. No credit/refund will be owed if the School must close because of an emergency or inclement weather.
Fees: Tuition and extended care fees are due by the first of each month and are considered delinquent after the 10th. A late charge of $15 will be charged on all delinquent accounts. Accounts will be charged a $15 bank fee for any returned checks. Accounts not paid by the 15th of each month will result in the child not being allowed to attend class and possible forfeiture of space.
Leave of Absence: A leave of absence may be taken without the loss of membership if the member pays the monthly tuition, pays /arranges for a substitute in the classroom for the assigned work days and is current on all membership obligations. Arrangements for extended leave must be made with the administration. Your child’s space is not saved if you do not follow this process and you may lose your enrollment.
