Tucson, AZ Policies And Procedures

The Children’s Center

The Children's Center of Tucson, AZ offers an Early Childhood Development program for children newborn to 6 years of age. The Center's purpose is to provide a rich environment, which will enhance and stimulate the total development of the child, physically, emotionally, socially, and intellectually.

Adult to Child Ratio

  • The Children's Center will maintain adult/child ratios that are as good as or better than the state requires. Fewer children with each teacher will provide the child with more individual attention and opportunities for pursuing activities especially suited to them.
Class Age Range Ratio
Infants (0 to 12 months) 1:5
Toddlers (12 months to 24 months) 1:6
Preschoolers (24 months to 4 years) 1:8
Pre K (4 years to 6 years) 1:13

Admission & Enrollment

  • Children will be admitted on a space available basis. Part-time spaces have limited availability, please check with the Director for openings. There are no part-time spaces in the infant room. Enrollment forms and health information must be completed upon admission by the parent or authorized persons. A $40 registration fee is due upon registration and again each year.

Disenrollment

  • A parent must give a two week notice to the school or they will be charged for two weeks of tuition on the final billing statement. In addition, parents or guardians must pay outstanding bills prior to the child's last day. Parents may apply to re-enroll 30 days after disenrollment and will be subject to the registration fee.
  • The Children's Center reserves the right to withdraw a child from the program at anytime if we feel that we are no longer able to meet the needs of that child, or the child/parents are not able to follow the guidelines of the program.

Fees & Tuition

  • In order to receive the lower tuition rate, payment must be made in advance prior to the week the child will be attending. Tuition paid after the deadline (Monday at 6:00 p.m.) will be subject to the higher tuition rate. Tuition is based on a weekly fee and payment guarantees (reserves) a place for child at all times. There are no refunds for absences or pre-designated holidays. There is no credit for vacations. D.E.S. clients are responsible for their co-pay during absences, vacations, and pre-designated holidays. In addition to D.E.S. co-payments, D.E.S. clients are responsible for an absence fee after two missed days per month. A late charge of $5.00 for every five minutes is billed for each child picked up after 6:00 p.m. and is to be paid to the teacher at the time of pick-up. Returned check fee will be $25.00.
