If You Are Late for Pickup or Drop Off

If you are more than 15 minutes late at drop off, you will need to check in at the office.  If you are late for full day pickup, your child will go to our After Care Program and you will be responsible for any associated costs.

Because of our limited parking, we ask that you pick up your children promptly.

Clarification About the Kindergarten Cutoff Date

If your child is not 5 years old before October 1st, they are not considered a Kindergartener. However, we have older pre-schoolers in the Kindergarten class, which is why it’s referred to as a “Mixed-Age Kindergarten. Those families pay pre-school tuition for the whole school year, even after their child turns 5 (if that is after Oct. 1).

Upon Confirmation of Enrollment

  • Sign the Contract ECE.
  • Pay the last month deposit fee.

Withdrawing from MPCS

Materials, registration, and last month deposit fees are non-refundable. 4 weeks notice is required for withdrawal from Preschool. In the event that you provide 4 weeks advanced notice, your deposit will cover the last month of tuition.
