Statement to Parents and Agreement
Tuition & Enrollment
Before enrollment can take a plan, Purple Dragon Preschool requires a mandatory, individual interview with both the parent/guardian and the child. This interview can be scheduled with the director of the school by contacting the school's primary telephone number (816) 753 - 2973 during the school's operating hours. The purpose of the interview is to assess the child's needs; therefore it does not commit the parents to enroll their child into the school. The enrollment of your child into the school will only be finalized when the appropriate deposit has been made and all of the required paperwork has been completed.
We are open all year round! The school year begins at the end of August and completes in the first week of June, with the summer enrollment possible for June through August. The age involved ranges from two years to the beginning of kindergarten.
Upon enrollment into the school there is a required annual $125.00 enrollment fee. Tuition is $200 for part time (4 days) and $250.00 for full time (5 days) per week for each child. Children may attend for less than 4 days, however, it is important to note that there will be no change in tuition rate. One gourmet snack, one healthy 3 course lunch, and one afternoon snack are provided by the school and no additional payment for a meal plan will be required.
Tuition is to be paid monthly by the first of each month. Payments that are five days late will be subject to a $25 late fee. If your child is in the Kindergarten Readiness Program or our advanced Workgroup Program there is a $25 supply fee also due on the first of each month.
Payments are due even if the child is absent. One free week of vacation will be granted to each child during the academic year, however you can start taking your free vacation week only after 6 months of enrollment.
If, for some reason, after the enrollment into the school, changes need to take place, the director of the school must be notified as soon as possible. Purple Dragon Preschool requires a two week notice: failure to provide a two week notice will result in additional charges.
If problems should arise at a later time, parents are required to request a conference with the school's director. The conference will be scheduled at the earliest possible time, convenient to both the parent and the school, during the school's operating hours.
Furthermore, if the staff of the school sees reason for a concern, a conference shall also be held. Purple Dragon Preschool and its staff will make all possible attempts to resolve and problems or concerns that affect the well-being of each child. If, at that time, the problem is not resolved to the satisfaction of the parent or the staff in relation to suit the child's best interests; then the parent may request for appropriate paper work to terminate the child's enrollment. In order for enrollment termination to take place appropriate notice of two weeks must be given.
Paperwork listed below is required by the state before enrollment can be finalized. All required paperwork must be submitted by the parents.
- Enrollment forms
- Health forms
- Medication authorization
If any changes occur in the child's medication forms, the parents are responsible to notify the director of the school immediately.

A responsible adult to whom the parent designates a responsibility to pick-up their child must provide a form of identification, without an appropriate identification form a child will not be permitted to leave the school with such adult.
