Enrollment procedures begin in January/February. Registration is accepted on a first come, first served basis. Priority is given to currently enrolled students, United Hebrew members, siblings of enrolled students, and then enrollment is open to the community.
Registration is complete when accompanied by the application and the registration fee. There is no credit for School Year families for vacations, holidays, illness, early withdrawals or school closing due to inclement weather, nor will make-up days be scheduled. Year Round families are entitled to two weeks’ vacation which is already included in your tuition.
The 10% sibling discount applies to all children in a family and is applied to the total for each permanent schedule. Additional hours added on are not discounted.
The admission policy of the Saul Spielberg Early Childhood Center is non-discriminatory with respect to race, religion, sex, or national origin. All classes are formed based on the child’s age as of July 31. This is in accordance with the age guidelines of the State of Missouri Department of Education.
Class placements are determined by the following criteria:
- First come, first served according to date of application and deposit
- Recommendations of teacher
- Compatible combination of ability levels in the group
- Emotional and social needs of individual children
- Gender mix in the group
- 3 vs. 5 day attendance
