Activity kits and all other offerings such as recorded lessons, toy lending, bonus Zooms, etc., are included no matter your choice for circle time frequency. Tuition rates are subject to change if SCP is able to incorporate outdoor or classroom instruction later in the school year.
We love incorporating siblings into our co-op preschool model at SCP!
Three options for siblings:
1. No charge: Siblings are welcome to listen in, dance, and sing along with circle times and bonus zooms. No extra activity or circle time materials will be sent home.
2. $10/month sibling materials add-on: This option includes extra activity kit materials in the student’s activity box and extra circle time supplies such as shakers and scarves (may not include things like chalkboards or other curriculum specific materials).
For options 1 & 2, siblings will not be counted as students on our circle time rosters so they won’t be included by name in songs or given turns in games that encourage the kids to talk and interact with the teacher. The teachers won’t be designing curriculum with siblings in mind. Siblings are welcome to listen to stories, dance, and sing along with the ‘big kids’ just as they would in the classroom.
3. Register a sibling as a second student: This option includes an activity kit (in a separate box from their sibling), all circle time materials, and an official spot on the circle time roster. The sibling must meet the age requirements for SCP (ages 2 through 5 on 8/31/20). All registration paperwork, including immunization records, must be filled out for both students. Both students would have spots held for them during any in-person preschool incorporated this year at SCP. The second student can be registered for the same circle times, or a different amount of circle times per week. There is a second-child discount of $20 off per month for families with two or more enrolled students. Families with more than one enrolled student only hold one member job.
Please note: All siblings are eligible for priority enrollment for the 2021/2022 school year, regardless of which sibling option you choose.
