Parent Participation/Non-participation Preschool

Fees are reduced for parents who participate in their child’s class. Parents schedule days to participate each month. Twice per month for 3 year old class, 3 times per month for 4 year old class.  They complete PUSD’s Volunteer Application, submit TB skin testing results, agree to a Megan’s Law Background Check, and sign the Volunteer Code of Conduct.

Non-participating parents pay higher fees each month than parents participating in the classes. They are not required to participate on a regular basis in their child’s class. Parents are always encouraged to volunteer in class, to attend special events at class/school, field trips, and/or prepare art projects. When parents are able to volunteer in the classroom or with preparation work, they make arrangements with the teacher.
