Final decisions for classroom placement are made in the best interest of the child by the Administrative Team.
Parents who have information relating to this decision should make an appointment with their child’s current
teacher to discuss the issues.
The teacher will then bring those issues to the placement meetings where the final decisions will be made in the
spring of each year. Changes in classroom assignments will only be made if the well-being of the child is seriously affected.

Important School Terms
Tuition-Based Contract (TBC)
Any student for whom monthly tuition is paid, whether it’s for “All Day, Academic Day, Half Day, or Before/After School”, is considered to be on a Tuition-Based Contract (or TBC).
When the school announces a Half Day or an Early Release - followed by the words “Except TBC & RSVP”, all students who pay tuition for more than half-day are welcome to stay free of charge for as long as their tuition allows: e.g., Academic Day students who pay a tuition to stay until 3pm can stay until 3pm on Early Release days, and All Day Students can stay until 5:30pm.
RSVP (from the French: répondez s'il vous plaît)
Students who are not Tuition-Based, or students who pay tuition for Half Day only but wish to stay after 11:30am, are welcome to stay later on Early Release days for a fee of $10 per hour. We encourage making your reservation ahead of time so we can staff accordingly.
