Q: Where are you located?
A: We are located at 38 Water Lily, Irvine CA 92606. We are between Jamboree, Barranca, Harvard and Warner.
Q: When should I enroll my child?
A: We encourage parents to enroll at any month of the year. There is no fixed enrollment time of the year since we operated year round. Children at the age of around 2 years learn a lot more in presence of other children their age, supervised by teachers. Parents usually have a tough time educating their children because kids don’t view their homes as a structured learning environment and their parents as educators.
Q: What is your teacher to child ratio?
A: We are committed to keeping class sizes small; our teacher to child ratio is 1:6. Our Picasa album pictures will give you an idea.
Q: How do I find about your tuition rates?
A: The basic programs tuition is on this website. Any special additional hours your child needs can also be accommodated. Call the school and speak with the Administrative Director at 949-333-3114. She will be happy to discuss the tuition with you.
