Full-Day Kindergarten

2018-2019 Payment Information

Application Due at time of Registration 

Andover Public School’s Full Day Kindergarten is fee-based at a cost of $3,975.00 with a $500 deposit due at time of registration.  Full-day kindergarten classes are held during the regular school hours of 8:45 am to 2:45 pm.  Students will eat lunch at school and, if eligible for transportation, will be transported on regular school buses.  Full Day Kindergarten Applications should be submitted along with the $500 deposit check at time of registration.

Online Kindergarten Registration opens on Thursday, February 15, 2018 for all incoming kindergarten students.   Your school will provide dates/times to bring the hardcopy documentation (also your Full-Day K application and deposit) to the school office, and screening dates and times.  

Over-enrollment in Full Day Kindergarten classes may result in the implementation of a lottery system.   Anyone not placed in a Full-Day Kindergarten class will receive a full refund of their $500 deposit.  Information on payment is included in this communication.

The payment of the fee does not provide students with any special consideration or entitlement with respect to their participation in the Full-Day Kindergarten program.   Should a need arise for a refund, all requests for refunds must be made in writing to the building principal.  Refunds will be reviewed on an individual basis and processed at the end of the school year.   In most cases, refunds will be made on a pro rata basis. Withdrawals must be communicated in writing to the building principals.   An administration fee of $50 will be deducted from the pro-rated refund for withdrawals after Wednesday, July 18, 2018.  The $50 fee is non-refundable.
