Our Irvine facility is closed only on/around/in-lieu-of national holidays when most parents have days off. Our calendar is aligned with Irvine Unified School District (IUSD) calendar. Please click on this link for Irvine Calendar for a list of holidays observed at our Irvine facility. A written 30-notice is required before dis-continueing or dis-enrolling from the program. A refundable $150 deposit expected at the enrollment time will be refunded at the time of discontinuation if an adequate 30-day written notice is provided along with the payment of tuition for those 30 days.


Flexible additional days/hours availability at the Irvine Facility


Besides the programs offered at our preschool, if your child ever needs additional time not included in any program, the rates are $100/day, $75/session (3-hour-session), and $40/hour. These rates are applicable during our academic hours between 8:30 am and 5:30 pm. Outside of these hours the rate is $40 per half hour. The pro-rating rates apply for the programs where they are higher than these fixed rates.

 

As is the case with every quality Montessori program in Irvine, seats are limited and are available on first-come-first-served basis. Please send the information about your child and the choice of program so that we can begin the process of registration and contact you about the availability.

Our program is a 90 minutes program that covers age customized learning material. Public school children can join in to finish the assignments given to them by their public school teachers.
