Enrollment & Tuition

Enrollment

Each April the enrollment list is made for that August’s classes. Currently-enrolled children are “moved” (on paper) to the next appropriate class for their age and development. After this process is completed, the open spaces in each classroom are revealed. The children on the waiting list are the first to be entered into empty spots. The highest level of priority on our waiting list is for siblings of our currently enrolled children. The second level of priority is given to members of Oak Grove United Methodist Church. After that, spaces are filled according to various factors such as child gender, age, and order of when the person was placed on the waiting list. *If you are offered a spot and choose not to take it, we will go to the next person on the waiting list. It might be the next August or later before your child is able to get a spot again.*

Infant Enrollment

The infant room, like all of our classrooms, enrolls once a year in August.  The highest level of priority on the waiting list goes to siblings of currently-enrolled children and the second level of priority goes to OGUMC members. All infants born after August will have to wait until the next year to get a spot, even siblings and church members. Infants born during the summer will have to pay for the infant spot each month starting in August, regardless of when the baby starts attending. Any spots that are vacated during the school year will be filled by children on the waiting list first. If no one is waiting, we will advertise the open spot. *If you are offered a spot and choose not to take it, we will go to the next person on the waiting list. It might be the next August or later before your child is able to get a spot again.*

Each current student will owe a yearly enrollment fee of $100, usually due in Feb/March, to stay on the enrollment list for the Fall. (Not the GA PreK class.)
(Students who do not pay the yearly enrollment fee are considered not returning for the Fall, and will not be included in Fall Classes. They will have to join the waitlist, secure a spot, enroll as a new student, pay a registration fee of $100, and pay August tuition in advance if they want to return for Fall classes.)
Students who withdraw at any time during the year will have to join the waitlist, secure a spot, enroll as a new student, pay a registration fee of $100, and pay their first month's tuition in advance if they wish to re-enroll.

Each new Full-day student (Infant - Preschool 3) owes the first month’s tuition (usually August) in advance as a *deposit, plus the registration fee.
