Registration Requirements

To register, parents must pay a one-time Enrollment Fee and first week’s tuition.  The Enrollment fee is waived for O2B Kids Members.  Prior to starting the program, parents must also complete an Enrollment Form, and furnish Immunization Records and a Physical Examination Report.  In addition, parents must review and complete an O2B Kids College Parent Agreement form, signifying that you have read and agree to all O2B Kids College policies.

Cancellation

Once your child begins attending O2B Kids College, we require that you provide a one-week written notice prior to withdrawing your child.

Waiting Lists

O2B Kids College reserves a select number of spaces in each age group for full-time and part-time preschool.  We enroll children on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Should space become filled, we will start a waiting list and notify parents as soon as space becomes available.  Members of O2B Kids will be given priority over Non-Members on the waiting list.  To hold a spot on the waiting list, parents are required to pay the Enrollment Fee. 

Authorized Guardians

O2B Kids College will only release your child to caregivers designated on your Enrollment Form.  Prior to picking up your child, all caregivers must show a picture ID.  The custodial parent or legal guardian is the only individual who may authorize O2B Kids College to release your child to an individual not originally identified on the child’s enrollment form.  This request must be made in writing, and the documentation will be added to your child’s permanent file.  O2B Kids College will not arbitrate custodial disputes.  Copies of all legal documents that provide parental custody and pick-up privileges must be in your child’s file.

Lost or Damaged Items

O2B Kids is not responsible for lost or damaged items that are brought to school.  We will make every effort to secure and protect all belongings.  Please put your child’s name on all clothing, tupperware, toys, or other items. 

Staff Education & Experience

The O2B Kids College staff is second to none!  Together, this team of individuals shares a very strong background in early childhood education and direct classroom experience.  All staff members are carefully selected, trained, and evaluated.  Personal integrity, an outgoing nature, a love and respect for children, and a genuine desire to help children learn and grow are traits that every employee shares.  A Lead Teacher directs each classroom, while a facility Director and Curriculum Director ensures that O2B Kids College provides the finest care and enrichment of any facility around.  We offer scholarships for our staff and conduct thousands of hours of training each year.

Two Teachers from each of our O2B Kids Location were invited to attend the NAEYC Conference. They attended seminars and met with Education Professionals to gather and collaborate new ideas to implement in our classrooms! We LOVE seeing our Educators continue to grow.

Special Needs Policy

Our school serves children and adults with special needs in keeping with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act.  When children, parents, employees, or prospective employees with disabilities wish to use the services of this program, the teachers and staff make every reasonable effort to serve as a healthy, safe, and inclusive atmosphere.
