STATUS OF CLASSROOM PARENTS “Plan 1” for Fall 2021:  
Due to COVID restrictions, we are limiting the number of co-op parents in the classroom for the 2021-2022 school year.  We are committed to our co-op model, and we want to return to offering this option as soon as possible.  We do not anticipate being able to have younger siblings and babies attend with classroom parents at all this year.  Please email your Teacher ASAP if you would like to be a classroom parent this year.

 

PRICING FOR COOP CLASSROOM PARENTS
Base tuition will be discounted $60 for each shift worked. We may only be able to accommodate parents who are able to be in the classroom once a week.  Classroom parents will need to meet all requirements: LiveScan fingerprinting, vaccinations for COVID, Measles, Pertussis, and TB testing. 

2021 - 2022 TUITION POLICIES

 

After our COVID closure last year, we are going to be running a very “tight ship” financially at BB as we rebuild our program.  Please understand that we are a tiny non-profit mountain preschool run by local families for local families.
 
For this year:
- please pay your bill on time
- consider paying in advance
- payments are non-refundable
- no sibling discounts
 
School Year Payments: School year tuition is divided into 9 monthly installments. Your deposit to reserve your child’s spot is 2 installments due on August 1, this covers your child’s tuition for the first two months of the year. Seven additional installments are due on the 1st of the month from Sept 1 through April 1. In order to keep our costs stable, we require payment a full month in advance (e.g. October tuition is due on Sept 1).
School Year Payment Schedule:
Due on July 15 - 2 installments, covers tuition through October
Due on Oct 1st - 1 installment, covers tuition through November
Due on Nov 1st - 1 installment, covers tuition through December
Due on Dec 1st - 1 installment, covers tuition through January 
Due on Jan  1st - 1 installment, covers tuition through February 
Due on Feb 1st - 1 installment, covers tuition through March 
Due on Mar 1st - 1 installment, covers tuition through April 
Due on Apr 1st - 1 installment, covers tuition through the end of the year 
 
WITHDRAW POLICIES: Payments are ALWAYS non-refundable and made a month ahead of time. If you need to withdraw your child, make your decision well in advance and notify your teacher. For example, February Tuition is due January 1, so you will need to notify your Teacher before Jan. 1 if your child will no longer be attending class in February.
 
HOW TO PAY: E-payments make the task of our parent volunteers so much easier!  Please use E-payments through our online system - if you absolutely must pay by check consider paying for a semester or the full year and use the tuition drop-box at school.
 
E-payment Option 1 - ACH BANK ACCOUNT PAYMENTS:  Families can select ACH payment to have the amount due directly debited from your bank account.  This is easiest and only costs BB $1 per transaction.  For security, our payment processor requires verification of “microdeposits” the first time a family makes an ACH payment.  Following your first ACH payment you will receive an automated email with instructions to verify the amounts of two small microdeposits into your bank account (for example $0.02 and $0.06).  
 
E- payment Option 2 - CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS: If you choose to pay by credit card - you MUST select the button "Yes" to donate the cost of processing the payment, otherwise we will add the cost of credit card fees to your next bill.  Our little non-profit preschool cannot absorb the costs of credit card fees, and this is the only way we can accept credit card payments.
 
PAYING IN ADVANCE: We love it when families can pay for a semester or year in advance.  When viewing your “Billing” screen in the family portal, there is a blue link at the bottom to show “All Pages”.  This will show your billing amount through the end of the year.  On the payment screen, you can enter whatever total works for your family.
 
SCHOLARSHIPS:  Please visit the admissions page on the BB website to download the scholarship application and submit your application prior to the start of the school year.
