Withdrawal and Termination


The Preschool Committee reserves the right to ask for the withdrawal of any child for any cause deemed reasonable, or if tuition payments fall two months in arrears. The school reserves the right to cancel any class and/or registrations if there is not sufficient enrollment to justify its continuance. A written notice is required for parents to withdraw a child from the program, a 30 day written notice is required . DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.

Refund Policy

Tuition is NOT REFUNDABLE OR PRO-RATED due to vacations, illness, snow or ice days, or any other closing beyond the control of the Director. Weather related closings ARE NOT MADE UP unless there are extenuating circumstances. The decision is made at the discretion of the Director and Preschool Committee.

If the school is closed temporarily due to health precautions, weather conditions, or any other reason beyond the control of the Director, normal tuition fees will continue to accrue.

If a child is absent from school for an extended period for any reason, but expects to return to school, tuition will be charged to reserve the child’s place in the program. Otherwise the vacancy will be filled.


The Preschool reserves the right to require the withdrawal of a child either on a temporary or permanent basis if:

  • The child’s behavior endangers the physical or mental health of the other children.
  • Tuition and/or other fees are late.
  • The parents fail to abide by school policies and procedures.
  • Parents and/or caregiver do not abide by carpool procedures.
  • The child is repeatedly late.
  • The child fails to adjust to the school, as determined by the Director.

Children With Special Needs

If a child with special needs can be accommodated at St. Paul’s Lutheran Preschool, the child will be considered for enrollment. As with any enrollment there is a 30 day probationary period. Parents of any special needs child will be informed that our staff is not trained in Special Education and will not be making special provisions within the classroom to accommodate the child. Any changes that might be made must be done with the consideration of every child in the classroom. If a large portion of any staff member’s time is spent dealing only with the special needs child, the Director will be notified. It is the policy of the Preschool that all children shall receive equal amounts of time from the teachers. If the special needs child is preventing this balance of staff and child interaction, the parents of the special needs child may be asked to look for another program that better meets the needs of the child.
