Enrollment Policies

Salem Baptist Preschool is not presently equipped or trained to accept students who are developmentally challenged outside of their chronological age level; therefore, children must be the developmental, chronological and cognitive age of the class they enter. All students who are receiving any developmental assistance must present all evaluations to the Director prior to entry or contact the Director concerning when evaluations will be available. Children must be the age of the class they are entering by August 31 of that school year. The Director and the governing board have the right to dismiss any child should they be unable to adjust to the classroom and age level requirements. Circumstances such as unresolved language and/or communication barrier, uncontrollable crying, screaming or anxiety, inability to adapt to the classroom routine, disruptive and/or aggressive behavior are some of the reasons for dismissal.

The Registration Fee is $100 for the first child and $75 for each additional child in the family, This fee is non-refundable, even if your child cannot attend the preschool for the upcoming year. To secure your child’s enrollment, September tuition must be paid by June 1. We do not accept credit or debit cards. We accept checks and the correct amount of cash. We do not keep cash on the premises; therefore, we are unable to give change.

Please note that, at the discretion of the Director and Weekday Preschool Committee, Salem Baptist Preschool reserves the right to not enroll a child.
