Our Pre-K program has three sessions: Fall, Spring, and Summer. The regular program schedule is Monday through Friday, with options for full-day (9 am – 5 pm) or half-day morning (9 am – 12 pm) and/or half-day afternoon (1 – 4 pm). Family Connections’ Pre-K program observes the same closure dates as the San Francisco Unified School District.
Our Pre-K programs are led by multilingual teachers. Children that are learning English are encouraged to enroll, as teachers provide individualized support and translations in Spanish, Cantonese, and Vietnamese as needed. Pre-K children learn songs in multiple languages and celebrate various cultural holidays in the classroom.
Tuition is made in five payments over the course of the session, beginning on the date of registration. Tuition is based on enrollment in the program session (five days per week), and not based on attendance. A $25 non-refundable registration fee is due for each program session (Spring, Summer, and Fall) and if a child drops from the program and decides to return at a later date.
Spring 2023 Tuition Costs:
Tuition for 3-year-olds: $3,465 + 25 fee = $3,490
Tuition for 4 and 5-year-olds: $2,100 + $25 fee = $2,125
Making a Payment: Payments can be made by check, money order, or credit card.
Late Fees/Bounced Checks: A late fee of $10 will be charged for payments received 5 business days after the due date. If payment has not been received, services may be suspended. Returned checks are considered late payments and an additional fee will be assessed on the return amount. If you have a check bounced or returned, we will require all future payments to be in the form of a money order or a cashier’s check.
Our Pre-K programs are offered for children ages 3-5 and transitional kindergarteners. We require that all children are fully potty-trained prior to enrolling with us. To be eligible for Preschool for All, a tuition credit program, families must live in San Francisco and children must turn 4 on or before December 2nd of the year they will be enrolled.
As a licensed childcare facility, our agency will continue to adhere to stricter guidelines than the general public. We continue to require COVID-19 vaccinations for all staff, program participants, and visitors; facemasks for all staff, program participants, and visitors; and egular sanitation of all surfaces. We will continue to monitor changes and evaluate the most practical and safest protocols for staff, visitors, and program participants.
Family Connections Centers operates licensed childcare centers. All teachers and administrative staff are credentialed in adherence to the guidelines and protocols of community care licensing. This includes education units, degrees, certification (i.e., CPR, First Aid, Pesticides, etc.), professional development training, background checks, and more.
