Financial Policies

Mt. Pleasant Preschool does not participate in any federally funded programs.  The only sources of income for the preschool are fees and tuition; therefore, it is necessary that all accounts be kept up-to-date.  Since our yearly budget and anticipated teacher's salaries are set in relation to the number of children enrolled, monthly tuition must be paid as long as your child is enrolled.  Illness, vacation, snow days, Christmas and Easter breaks and other circumstances will sometimes cause your child to miss several days.  Tuition remains the same regardless of the number of days your child attends.

 

Tuition is due by the fifteenth of the month.  After the 15th, a late fee of $10.00 per child will be charged if tuition is not paid.  Late fees become part of the tuition.  Should the month's tuition and late fee not be paid by the last day of the month, the director will notify the parents that the child is no longer eligible to continue until payment has been received. 

 

A $10.00 tuition discount is given for the second child enrolled from the same family.  For parents who would like to pay a full year (September through May) your tuition will be discounted 5%. A $10.00 discount has been applied to the Monday-Friday class. 


No deductions are made for absences due to sickness, family vacations or holidays. Returned checks will be charged $15.00 per occurrence. Scholarships are available and will be approved by the board.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

What are drop-off & pick-up times?


Students should arrive in their classroom as close to 9:00 am as possible. The preschool is open from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm for all the classes. The teachers are preparing and setting up their classrooms for the school day from 8:30 - 9:00 am and will not be able to give the child the attention that he or she deserves before 9:00 am. Following a regular schedule is very important for preschoolers. We stress attendance because it gives the child a feeling of security.




What are your arrival and departure policies?


Upon arriving, children should be escorted to their classrooms by their parents. Parents should sign-in and assist the child in hand-washing.
Children should arrive as close to 9:00 am as possible to enable teachers to complete their schedule of activities. Children should be picked up promptly at 1:00 pm.




Is Mt. Pleasant Preschool focused on a secure facility?


Yes! Our preschool is kept secure at all hours, especially during operational hours when children are present. Mt. Pleasant is also focused on security inside the facility.
Mt. Pleasant is a “Safe Sanctuary” Church. We have long been an advocate of children and recognizes their uniqueness as individuals and as children of God. We are committed to providing a nurturing, safe environment free from emotional, physical and sexual abuse through what has been called a “safe sanctuary policy.” All staff working with children are carefully screened. This includes our preschool teachers, assistants, Sunday School teachers, and anyone working with the youth of the church. Criminal background checks are required. Teachers receive annual training in Infant/Child CPR and First Aid.




What are your incelment weather policies?


Parents will be notified as soon as possible about any weather-related delays or cancellations. The preschool follows the Catawba County School’s (CCS) decision on closing school or delay policies for inclement weather. Please also watch for, or listen to, the news reports in addition to our notification. If CCS is closed - we are closed. If CCS is on a one-hour delay - we open at 9:30 am & close at 1:00 pm. If CCS is on a two-hour delay - we open at 10:30 am & close at 1:30 pm. If CCS is on a three-hour delay - we open at 11:30am & close at 2:30 pm. Parents will be notified 2 weeks in advance of make-up days.
