Getting Started: Enrollment and Admission Procedures
Our enrollment process is designed to help you make this most important decision regarding your child early care and education. We want to provide you with the time to visit the classroom, observe your child in the classroom, and answer any questions that you may have. It is important that you convey to us at the time of your visit what your expectations of our Center are.
Before a final enrollment decision is made, we recommend that your child spend some time in the classroom without you. The Program Director will assist you in determining how long this visit should be. This visit will provide the classroom teacher and Program Director the opportunity to observe your child and determine if the classroom selected is appropriate for the developmental level of your child. We will also try to determine if there is a good match with the group size and level of activity.
The following steps must be taken in order to enroll in any of the programs offered by the Shrewsbury Children’s Center.
Enrollment Options: There are 2 enrollment schedule options available.
Option 1: Full Year Enrollment
Parents electing to enroll for a full year (12 months, September 1st - August 31st) will be guaranteed re-enrollment each year. In addition, 1 week of tuition-free vacation time is available to be used between September 1st and August 31st. (See complete Vacation Credit Policy)
Option 2: Partial Year Enrollment
(i.e. September 1st - June 30th) Parents choosing this option are not guaranteed an opening in the upcoming year but will be placed on a waiting list for any available opening. Example: Any opening created by a child leaving the program for the summer will be filled immediately from the names on the waiting list. The child who is leaving will be placed on the waiting list if parents want to re-enroll in the fall. * If you enroll for a partial year, you will be expected to pay tuition through June 30th.
