Act 166 Funding

If your child is 3 on or before September 1st, you are eligible for Act 166 funding. These funds are applied toward 10 hours of preschool per week, as mandated in Act 166. The funds are paid quarterly by your school district to Davis Studio directly.

In order to receive this funding, you must register with your school district by its individual deadline which is often at the start of summer. You are responsible for checking with your school district to determine deadlines and what paperwork you need to submit to be officially enrolled.

If this is not done by your school’s deadline, Davis Studio will receive no payment. Therefore, you will be responsible for full tuition payment. You will be reimbursed for the Act 166 portion of tuition once Davis Studio is paid by the school district. This process likely takes three or more months.

Age Eligibility for Enrollment

Davis Studio Preschool is a multi-age program with an emphasis on continuity of care. The majority of students enrolled are between the ages of 3-5. Davis Studio Preschool does reserve 4-5 openings for children younger than age 3. We will prioritize offering these spots to a younger sibling of a currently enrolled student for admission. This is a decision made on a case by case basis and is not necessarily guaranteed. When possible we want to support families by making an effort to keep siblings at the same preschool. *Note: Children who are not yet 3 years old by the September 1st school district cut-off are not eligible for state funding. 

Withdrawal Policy

A 45 day written notice is required, if, for any reason, you withdraw your child from the Davis Studio Preschool. You will be financially responsible for that 45 day period, as well as any other tuition or fees owed, whether or not your child attends school during that time.

Attendance Policy

If your child is absent for an extended period, the school district may not provide funding for those missed weeks. Should this be the case, you are responsible for the unfunded amount in addition to any tuition and fees due for that period in order for your child to remain enrolled.

Late Payment Fees

If an electronic bank payment is rejected for any reason, you will receive a notice to that effect and the resulting $50 bank service fee will be added to the reprocessing of the payment.

Late Pick Up Fees

Our instructors and staff plan their schedules with an expectation of an on-time pick up. If you arrive late, you will be billed $5.00 for every 5 minutes you are late. A consistent pattern of late pick-ups could result in dismissal from the program.
