Registration Fee

Each year, parents must pay a registration fee for each child, whether new or returning. The year’s current fee, which covers insurance, administrative fees, and supplies for your child, can be found on your Application for Enrollment.


Tuition

Tuition for the first month of your child’s enrollment should be paid by his or her first day of attendance. After that, you can choose to pay on a monthly, bimonthly, or weekly basis. We offer the program Tuition Express, which allows parents to pay for tuition and other charges via Electronic Funds Transfer from their bank accounts or credit cards.


Lunch & Snack

At our center, meals and snack times are pleasant social learning experiences for children during which conversation is encouraged, self-help skills are fostered, and good nutrition habits are promoted. Parents are invited to join their children for lunch at the center whenever possible.

If your child attends the full-day program or the half-day with lunch program, you may purchase a hot lunch from the center (hot lunches are prepared daily on-site by our nutritionist) or send your child with a lunch from home. If you choose to buy your child hot lunch, you can fill out the order form (found on our homepage or at the front desk) and turn it in by the first of the month to order lunches ahead of time. If your child needs a hot lunch and it is not pre-ordered, parents can order one on that day for an additional fee.

Snacks are provided to children in the morning and afternoon at our center, and are prepared daily in our kitchen on campus. Snacks are planned to meet the child’s nutritional requirements as recommended by the US Department of Agriculture, and arrangements can be made if your child has an allergy to any foods or drinks.

Nutrition education is one of the components of our program. Parents and children alike should be educated regarding the preparation of well-balanced meals, and children are encouraged to try new foods.


Naptime

For children who stay after 1:00 pm, naptime is required from 1:00 to 2:30 pm after the children’s lunch. Children do not have to sleep during naptime, but we do require that they lay quietly on their mats while the other children rest.

Parents are required to purchase a nap mat and a fitted crib sheet if your child is staying for nap. We also encourage you to bring a small crib-size blanket and small pillow to make naptime more comfortable for your child. Bedding should be taken home and washed every weekend, and returned the next week when your child comes back to school.


Clothing Policy

Children should wear comfortable, washable clothing suited for active and messy play. To avoid losing a favorite jacket or sweater, we ask that parents label clothing that might be taken off during the day. Children should wear pants that they can remove by themselves to go to the bathroom, and if a child wears sandals, they need to have a back strap so that they don’t fall off during playtime.


Supplies

Each child needs to have a plastic bag with a full change of clothes in his or her cubby at all times. Accidents happen, and we need to be prepared with clean clothes for your child, if necessary. We will put the dirty clothes into the plastic bag for you to take home and wash, and we will send a “Take Note” home so that you know what happened.


Arrival & Departure

Each day a child attends, parents must sign him or her in after going to the classroom, and must sign out before leaving the classroom. Our center has biometric touch screens at the front desk to provide quick and secure sign in and sign out for our parents. Upon registering at the center, parents are registered on the touch screens by using their fingerprint, which they will use to sign in and out from then on.


Chapel

As a Christian school, we believe in teaching our students about the gospel of Jesus Christ, including Bible lessons in the classroom. Each Thursday, we hold a twenty to thirty minute chapel service in the CrossPoint Church auditorium. Each classroom has the opportunity to prepare and conduct at least two chapel services each year for the entire school, and other services will be given by the director, the church pastor, or other guest speakers.


School Year & Summer Term

Our center is a year-round school and regularly has a large waiting list. In an effort to be fair to all of those who wish to have their child attend CPCC, we have developed a strict Summer Session policy. If your child is enrolled for the current school year, and you want your child to attend the next school year, they must remain enrolled during the summer session. They do not have to attend during the summer, but their tuition for each summer month must be paid in order to hold their spot for the following school year. Each spring we give parents the option to register their student for summer session field trips and activities. For parents whose children are already attending CPCC, there is no registration fee, only the cost of field trips or activities.


Special Programs

Throughout the year, our center hosts extra-curricular programs such as book clubs, music lessons, dance classes, and school pictures. Should parents wish to enroll their child in any of these special programs, there will be an additional fee above regular tuition costs, which will be paid to the individual providing the service. All special programs will be held on campus, and will be advertised in the front lobby.


Emergency Preparedness

In the event of an emergency or natural disaster, all children will be kept at the center until they are picked up by an authorized adult as indicated on the Emergency and Identification form. Our Center always has ample food, water, and first aid supplies to care for all children for 72 hours.


Graduation & Promotion

We believe that it is important to recognize each student’s hard work and significant achievements. So at the end of each school year (around mid-June), CPCC holds a graduation ceremony to recognize those currently enrolled students who are old enough to move on to Kindergarten. For the 2 year old, 3 year old, and Kindergarten classes, we have promotion parties in the classrooms instead of a graduation ceremony. During these parties, students will be recognized for promotion to the next age level for the coming fall, as well as for individual achievement during the past school year.


State Laws

Health Regulations are determined by the California State Department of Social Services and the State Department of Health. For the protection of all children enrolled in our program, the following requirements are necessary:


  • Every child must have a pre-admission health evaluation completed by a licensed physician.
  • Every child must be immunized for tetanus, diptheria, hepatitis B, HIB (haemophilus influenzae type B), whooping cough, polio, measles, and varicella as required. Information on vaccinations can be found here.
  • Tuberculin clearance is required.
  • Parents must complete a Pre-admission Health History and Record Form.


Is your child well enough to attend school?

Each child must be healthy enough to participate in the center’s regular program. It is the parents’ responsiblity to verify that their child’s health is adequate for participation in program activities before bringing them to school each day. Should parents observe any of the following symptoms, parents are required to adhere to the following guidelines regarding keeping the child at home.


  • Symptom & How Long to Keep Child Home:
  • Fever of 100.4 or above: until the temperature is normal for 24 hours
  • Cold/Flu: until thick yellow or green mucous discharge is no longer draining from the nose, and coughing has subsided
  • Diarrhea/vomiting: until loose stools and vomiting have subsided and the child has returned to normal eating without an upset stomach
  • Ear ache/sore throat: until child has been seen and treated by a physician and/or symptoms subside
  • Red, watery eyes: until eyes return to normal, are no longer red and burning or itching
  • Rash: until the rash disappears, or it is determined that the rash is not a result of a communicable disease


Daily Health Check

Every student’s health is of utmost importance to us. State Licensing requires our staff to complete a health check for each child daily upon arrival in the program. If the Director or teacher determines that a child is ill, he/she will not be admitted on that day. If a child becomes ill while at the center, the staff will notify the parents by phone to take the child from the center.

When a child is sent home ill, he/she may not attend school the following day. Children may not return to the center until they are symptom free for 24 hours. If you are not sure whether or not your child is well enough to attend school, please call the front desk and ask for more information.

Children with Disabilities

It is our center’s policy to accept children in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), its regulations, and any other applicable laws. We review each child’s situation on a case-by-case basis, and communicate with the parents on what would be best for that child’s situation.


Allergies

Our staff is careful to attend to the needs of any child with allergies. If a doctor has diagnosed your child as having an allergy, please bring in a statement from the physician stating what the allergy is and what cautions our staff should take, and we will make sure to follow the orders provided.


Medication & Sunscreen

The CrossPoint Children’s Center staff is authorized to administer oral medication as long as there is a current prescription from a physician and a completed Permission to Administer Medication form from the parent.

If you want your child to wear sunscreen during afternoon outside play time, please provide the office with a completed Permission to Administer Medication form and a bottle of sunscreen labeled with your child’s name.


Accidents & Injuries

Any time a child sustains an injury at school, our staff notifies the parents via written report, with one copy given to the parent and one copy kept at school. If a serious injury occurs, including a head injury, the parents are notified via phone immediately, and are given a written report upon their arrival at the center.
