General Policies and Procedures

The school year runs year-round from August until the final week in July. The school day is from 7:30 am – 5:00 pm, we operate Monday through Friday, except for scheduled school closing as noted on the school calendar.
Little Elephant learning center is a mixed-age group center that enrolls children from 15 months to 5 years of age. After a family has been accepted, and paid the registration fee, the school will hold the spot for the child until enrollment can begin. Please note that the policies of this handbook apply to any changes in enrollment status from the time of enrollment until the new school year.

Families are required to give a 30-day notice in writing when they make the decision to leave Little Elephant. The final tuition payment will be prorated in cases where less than 30 days notice is given. All families must sign the “Enrollment package” which outlines family responsibilities to the school as well as the school’s responsibilities to the family. All admission and enrollment forms must be completed, and accounts must be current prior to your child’s first day of attendance and/or the first day of the new school year.

The school retains the right to make decisions regarding enrollment, classroom makeup, and placement based on the needs of individual children and/or the classroom/school community. Upon enrollment to Little Elephant school, it is the responsibility of families to keep the school informed of any changes in personal information, including but not limited to phone number, email address, residential address, and place of employment.
