Q: How is the tuition calculated?
A: The Fiscal Department has calculated a "mock weekly rate", multiplied it by the actual number of weeks that children are in school (excluding break weeks), and divided it by 10 months. Even though your tuition is the same rate every month, it is to avoid some months being more money than others. Your tuition is calculated to reflect a lower and consistent monthly rate. For more information, please see the Site Supervisor or Assistant Site Supervisor.
Q: How do I pay my monthly tuition?
A: There are several ways to pay your tuition:
If you do not receive your monthly invoice via email or have any questions regarding your account, please contact "CDP Fiscal Services" at 661-294-5300.
Q: Is lunch provided on minimum days, full days, breaks, etc.?
A: The cafeteria is open and available for hot lunches on minimum days only. Your child needs to bring a sack lunch on full days and during breaks. We cannot microwave or refrigerate your child's lunches.
Q: How are the grades separated?
A: The grades are separated into three groups, with each group having the necessary staff to maintain the ratio of 1:14. The children are grouped as follows, staying with their group for the bulk of the day to participate in the planned daily activities:
First & Second
Third,Fourth, Fifth, Sixth
Q: What activities will my child be doing?
A: Each day, we provide outside playtime, a nutritious snack, homework time (with the exception of the kindergarteners), and developmentally appropriate activities. Our daily schedules are located on our Parent Board inside the main CDP Building.
Q: What if I'm late picking up my child?
A: Closing time is 6:00pm. Should your child be picked up after closing time, the parent or guardian is assessed a late fee of $1.00 per minute, per family. Payment is due within one week of the charges. Ten late pick-ups per year may result in termination from the program. After seven late pick-ups, a parent will receive a warning letter prior to their child being dropped from the program.
Q: What if I need to change or withdrawal from the program?
A: Should you need to change your child's program, the completion of a Special Tuition Change & Charge Sheet form is required. Please see Miss Vasquez for this form. A $10.00 Administrative Fee is charged for all program changes. Changes and withdrawals must be made by the last day of the current month for the change to take effect at the next billing cycle (15th of the following month). Program changes requested on or after the last day of the month are subject to approval.
