Centro Primeros Pasos thanks you for your time and interest!
Thank you so much for touring with us! Please review the attached information as a follow up to our tour. We’d like to be sure you are familiar with basic policies and next steps before applying.
Transitioning children into care:
At Primeros Pasos we prefer to ease into the full day schedule with a transition visit followed by shorter days at first, ramping up to full days. We also use a “storybook technique” (even for infants!) to familiarize children before they start with us. We have seen how those 2 details really help children adjust comfortably more quickly. We offer more details when families move forward in the enrollment process.
If your family chooses to apply and we agree on a mutually acceptable start date, the next step is for families to remit a $500 non-refundable deposit to hold your child's place (please do not remit this before all is set.).
One month before your child's start date, we ask all families to complete payment of last month’s tuition. The (by then) previously paid $500 deposit is applicable to the last month’s tuition.
On the first day of school, that first month’s tuition is due. We prorate first month’s tuition if start date is not at the start of the month. Monthly tuition is due on the first of the month thereafter.
We ask all families to execute 2 agreements related to COVID-19 at this extraordinary time, copies of these forms are available here:
- Primeros Pasos COVID acknowledgement agreeing to abide by all prevailing regulations.
- SFDPH acknowledgment required by the City.
Also please find the following reference documents for your information:
- Our 2022 calendar.
- Our 2022 tuition schedule. Please note we typically have a 3-5% increase annually which goes 100% to fund teacher salary increases.
We have limited privately offered financial aid available.
At enrollment time we distribute a “parent homework” packet of additional forms required by our Center and by the State.
If you choose to apply, here is the application link open for attendees of our tour:
The application fee is $75 and payment is preferred via Zelle to firstname.lastname@example.org. We also accept Venmo @primerospasossf.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us. Otherwise we look forward to receiving your application!
