Refund & Tuition Policy


Parents who prefer to keep their children home for the entire 2020-21 school year, will be refunded their registration monies which would have originally covered April 19 – June 8, 2021. For those parents who register their children in the 1st Semester only (and not the 2nd Semester), registration monies are refundable. These monies can also be moved forward to guarantee placement for the 2021-2022 school year.


For children withdrawing from the Children’s Center after the school year has started, tuition for both In-person and Zoom/Take Home Packet programs are non-refundable and non-transferable. In the case of a school wide shut down, due to property damage, a public health emergency, or a natural disaster, tuition will not be refunded.

Tuition Assistance

As part of the ministry of the Los Altos United Methodist Church, the Children's Center offers financial assistance to families in need. Tuition Assistance Request forms are available in the office and are due with your application for enrollment. Award letters will be mailed in June. These awards are applied toward the three tuition payments and not the registration deposit. Tuition assistance is not offered for the Twos program.
