In order for the Burbank childcare to enroll children, the following process will be followed:
Any family who is interested in enrolling their child at the Burbank childcare will complete a Registration Form. More specifically:
One registration form should be completed for each child. (If a family wishes to enroll two children in the household, then a different Registration Form should be completed on each child).
A family must submit a $50 nonrefundable fee for each submitted Registration Form.
Once the Burbank childcare office receives the completed Registration Form as well as the nonrefundable fee, the form will be “date stamped.”
Children will be enrolled at the Burbank child care based upon their date stamp. Available classroom spots will be filled first with the ‘oldest’ date stamp. Please note that if a child is a sibling of a current or former BECS student or an employee, that child will have “priority.” This means that this prospective child will move ahead of the date stamp Registration forms from new families.
If a family is offered a spot and they decline it, the registration form will be discarded.
Children entering the Young Preschool program need to be two years old (24 months) by December 1st to secure a spot for that school year. Children entering the Preschool program must be fully potty trained without needing assistance and three years old (36 months) by December 1st to secure a spot for that school year.
Children who are under three years old on August 1st will be placed in a Young Preschool classroom and will transition to a Preschool room the following school year. Moving children from Young Preschool to Preschool mid-year is done on a rare, case-by-case basis.
A spot at the Burbank childcare is not secured until a parent signs a Tuition Agreement, completes enrollment forms, and writes a non-refundable check for one month’s tuition. This deposit will be applied toward the child’s last month with us at Burbank.
Our full-day childcare does not discriminate against otherwise qualified disabled children. Parents of special needs children are encouraged to communicate with the director and teachers regarding reasonable accommodations needed for their children.
We do not discriminate in the enrollment of children upon the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
