Child Care Enrollment Step 1: Check Availability
If you are interested in enrolling your child in our program, please check to see which openings are available. Due to a small group size we do not experience the high turnover of group centers. We will contact you as soon as an opening becomes available.
Child Care Enrollment Step 2: Private Tour and Interview
Schedule a tour and interview so we can discuss your child's specific needs, review important information about the program, and tour the premises. Feel free to bring your child with you so he or she can meet the other children and see what fun things there are to do here. Be sure to allow 30-45 minutes so we have adequate time to discuss your child's specific needs, program policies, and to address all of your questions.
During the interview you will receive a copy of our credentials, our Daily Schedule, and other materials to help you choose the program that is right for you and your child.
Generally, all interested families are interviewed before a decision is made, however in certain circumstances the opening may be filled before all the scheduled interviews are completed.
Child Care Enrollment Step 3: Submit an Enrollment Application
Please advise that you intend to enroll your child within 24 hours of the interview and tour.
In order to reserve your child's space in the program, an Enrollment Application must be completed by parents or legal guardians and submitted, along with the $75 enrollment fee and deposit of the first week's tuition.
The enrollment fee and first week's tuition are non-refundable and will be forfeited if the child does not attend as scheduled.
After a 24-hour window has passed, other prospective families will be offered the opening. At this point the opening will be filled on a “first come, first served” basis, depending on which family submits the enrollment items first.
As confirmation of the child's enrollment, an “Enrollment Acceptance” will be completed and sent to parents. Enrollment is considered to begin on the date listed on the Enrollment Acceptance form and a place will be reserved for your child beginning on that date (as long as all fees and forms are received on time).

Child Care Enrollment Step 4: Complete Your Enrollment
Complete your child's enrollment by submitting the proper enrollment forms. These have varying due dates; please complete, sign and submit each by the date listed on the form. In order to make certain that each child's file is complete and accurate, no child can be accepted for care without the proper forms on file and payment of the first week's tuition.
Finally, be sure to take time to read through and become familiar with the program policies contained in the Parent Handbook before your child's first day of attendance.

Child Care, Dis-enrollment
At some point it will be graduation time. The Parent/Provider Contract may be terminated by either us or by the parent or legal guardian. When notice of termination is delivered, all outstanding bills, fees must be paid in full regardless of which party terminates childcare services
Parents wishing to withdraw their child from care must submit a written notice at least thirty days prior to the child's last day of care. The final payment covers the child's last two weeks of care, whether the child has attended care or not. Payment of tuition is due for care up to the last two weeks
Funtastic Learning Academy may terminate a child's enrollment at will, effective immediately, and for any reason deemed necessary. Reasons for termination may include, but are not limited to:
- Failure to pay tuition and/or fees on time.
- Failure to sign in/out.
- Lack of parental cooperation.
- Inability to meet the needs of the child.
- Repeated late pickups.
- Failure to complete and return required forms.
- Verbal or physical abuse or threat by a parent, guardian, child or person transporting a child.
- A child's behavior which threatens the safety, security, well-being of anyone at the center.
