Pre-K Q&A

Parents, many of you seem to have the same questions regarding our tuition based PK, so here’s a little Q&A.

Q: Do compulsory attendance laws apply to PK?

A: No, because PK is not required in Texas, and because you’re paying for this service, the same attendance laws do not apply. Although we believe it is beneficial for students to attend regularly, students and parents will not be penalized for absences.

Q: How do we enroll?

A: The required enrollment paperwork can be filled out at the BES office.

Q: Is the $300 deposit due when paperwork is completed?

A: No, however, the deposit must be paid to hold the spot. The deposit (which counts as the August tuition payment) will be accepted until all slots are filled.

Q: What day is payment due each month?

A: Payment is due the 1st of each month unless it falls on a weekend or holiday. In that case, payment is due the first Monday of the month.

Q: When is the first monthly payment due?

A: The first monthly payment(not counting the deposit toward August) will not be due until Sept. 4.

Q: What types of activities will be done?

A: Students will work on the basics of letter identification, sounds, and reading, communication, writing, and basic number skills. Students will also go to PE, recess, computer lab, music, library, and take frequent field trips.

Q: Will parents be able to participate in their child’s learning?

A: YES! Several times throughout the year, we will invite you to school! Parties, academic experiences, field trips, and volunteer opportunities are just a few of the events we love to have our PK parents attend!

Our PK teachers are already preparing for a great 2018-19 school year! Come see us at BES, and fill out the paperwork to hold your spot!
