IKAR ECC Tuition Contract and Deposit
IKAR Early Childhood Center

Tuition Agreement

I understand that:
·       In order for my child to attend the Early Childhood Center (ECC), I must be an IKAR member.
·       My child’s continuance in the ECC is predicated upon our continued IKAR membership.
·       All documents (medical forms, emergency cards, etc.) must be completed and submitted BEFORE my child can be admitted to school.
·       The IKAR ECC requires all students ages 2 and older to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in addition to all other vaccinations required by California State Licensing. By signing this contract, I understand that compliance with this policy will be a requirement for my child’s attendance.

·       All changes in home or work phone numbers must be reported to the office IMMEDIATELY so I can be reached in case of an emergency.
·       The IKAR ECC operates in accordance with the public school calendar as well as Jewish holiday observances. Special programs during breaks may be offered at an additional cost. A complete school calendar will be issued before the Fall semester begins. Because of enrollment policies and child:teacher ratios, NO REFUNDS OR ALLOWANCES can be made for absences, and there are NO MAKE-UP DAYS. Unusual circumstances can be discussed with the ECC Director.
·       The ECC’s separation policy requires a gradual introduction to school. The time allotted for this process will be determined cooperatively by the Teacher, Parent(s) and Director. The school separation policy requires that myself, another parent or caregiver stay or be available to stay with my child during the first week of school.
·       The ECC supports the use of therapeutic companions as a means of supporting children with special needs to attend school. If the ECC and my family agree to the use of a therapeutic companion, the cost of said companion will be the responsibility of my family.
·       Should the IKAR ECC be unable to meet my child’s needs, I will be given a minimum of TWO WEEKS WRITTEN NOTICE.
·       The ECC does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sexual orientation, national origin or ancestry.
