Enrollment Packet


The conditions of your Enrollment Agreement provide protection for our parents as well as for our Ram Start Preschool. In order to assure that we can provide the services to which your child is entitled, it is essential that the financial status of Ram Start Preschool be stable. The Ram Start's salaries, licensing requirements, and overhead expenses cannot be reduced because of "absentee losses" in income. In essence, our Enrollment Agreement is a parental guarantee to Ram Start Preschool that you will financially support the enrollment space guaranteed to your child.


Tuition is due monthly. If your tuition payment is received after the payment due date, there will be a late charge of $25.00. If tuition is not received by the first Friday of the due date, your child may not be eligible to return to school on Monday until arrangements are made

Your registration fee of $75.00 is an annual fee and must be paid to reserve your enrollment space for the following school year. The registration fee is non-refundable.
