UPDATES to the 2020-21 Trojan Tot Program Model

  • AM Combo 3 and 4/ PM Section Combo 3 and 4
  • AM Combo 3 and 4/ PM Section Combo 3 and 4
  • AM Combo 3 and 4 only Section 

***Addition of Wrap-Around Care for 3 and 4 year olds in the afternoon only.


Wrap-Around Care Structure:

Payment Structure:

We are wanting to align the cost similar to our extended care programs currently in place. Looking at the wrap-around care program we will charge a rate of 5.00 dollars per hour from 11:15-3:15 4 hours per day. In addition to normal 3 year old tuition and transportation. Students also may attend our 6 to 6 program allowing flexibility for parents.

Parent Information to be Communicated:

Lottery for Enrolling into Wrap-Around Care would be announced on July 10th. We will directly communicate with those families who have currently signed up for preschool and invite them to consider wrap-around care services and to register for a lottery (only if those who request it are greater than maximum seats as of noon on Friday the 17th.) We will send out a media release and post through social media the options and sign-up process for wrap-around care so those who were not sending students due to the lack of full day care would then have a potential option of such. 


If we have more students than available seats (due to space and certification guidelines through DHS) we will perform a random lottery-sort through excel spreadsheets at 12:30 PM with 3 witness present . Once the lottery-sort is complete we will start contacting those families in consecutive order to confirm a placement in the program, (asking families to confirm within 48 hours) that they accept placement in the wrap-around program. This allows those on the waiting list to have sufficient time to inform day-cares of the families participating.
