Registration Procedure

Complete and sign registration forms and turn them in upon registration at Beachwood Nursery School, along with the applicable fees before a student is considered enrolled for any current or upcoming school year.

Enrollment for the upcoming fall begins in late February and continues until classes are filled. Families have a choice to attend school according to the Toms River School Calendar of 180 school days, or may select additional days from the Early Learning Center Drop-in Care calendar for an additional 15 days. Please note that we offer an additional summer calendar that is separate from fall registration.

Tuition Policy

For your convenience, tuition is divided into ten equal payments due the first of each month. The registration fee is due at time of registration. The first payment is due by August 1st as a tuition deposit. The tuition deposit secures your child’s enrollment in our program. The 2nd payment is due September 1st and ends with your final payment May 1st. A late fee of $2 per day will be assessed for all late payments. Beachwood Nursery School expenses are paid by tuition; therefore, no deductions will be made for daily or extended absences or emergency closings. Snow days will be added to the end of the school year according to Toms River Schools calendar. We require a four week written notice prior to a student withdrawal before prepaid tuition can be refunded. Bi-Weekly payment plans are available for families registered for the Early Learning Center. An administrative fee may be applied. Payment by credit card is also available for tuition payments; an administrative fee is applicable. The summer program is billed separately. Read the 2020-2021 Tuition Policy on page 2.
