How do I enroll my child in Basic Concepts Summer Program?
Please call to set up a screening. Screenings are informal and typically last approximately 30 minutes. A screening is required to determine eligibility and appropriate class placement for your child. The screening fee is $75.00.

Does my child need to be potty trained for the 3-5 year old classes?

If your child is not ready to begin potty training, it is your responsibility to provide the classroom staff with diapers, wipes, and extra clothing.

Can we attend Basic Concepts Summer Program for only 2-3 days a week instead of 5?
Our Summer program is designed to help your child meet his/her summer goals based on full time attendance. Therefore, enrollment is first open to students who can attend 5 days a week for the full session. After Memorial Day, if space is available, we open enrollment to students who wish to attend 2-3 days a week.

Can we visit the facility before Basic Concepts Summer Program begins?
No. Unfortunately, Basic Concepts does not gain access to the building until 1-2 days prior to the first day of our program. During this time, we are busy setting up the classrooms and training our staff. You are welcome to drive by the facility or view the playground area before our Summer program begins. Please respect the safety rules and staff at St. Elizabeth’s School and do not try to enter the building
