Sunflower Preschool & Garden Gate Preschool - Programs offered for the school year 2021-2022

Enroll for the 2014-2015 school year at miss Linnie's Sunflower Preschool in Capistrano Beach and SanJuan Capistrano

There is a $200 application and deposit fee (to be submitted following a tour and with the completed of the Application Request Form). A refund of $100 will be sent to you if your child is not admitted to Ms. Linnie's Sunflower Preschool or your child has been accepted and you do not wish to be added to the waiting list. The withheld $100 is a non-refundable App Fee. Once admission is granted, one months' non-refundable tuition (and your child's paperwork) is required for admission (either prior to or on the first day of school) and the $100 deposit will be applied toward annual supplies. PLEASE NOTE: A $100 Supply Fee will be billed once a year.

Children are admitted with the understanding that they will attend for the entire school year. Tuition is due the first day of every month. Please note that you are responsible for your annual tuition which has been divided into 12 equal payments for your convenience (factoring in a discount for statutory holidays and Winter recess). Unpaid fees are subject to immediate suspension or termination of care unless reasonable arrangements are made and accepted by both parents and Ms. Linnie. Checks that are returned due to insufficient funds will be assessed a $30 servicing fee. If a family's tuition check is returned twice within a twelve-month period, the family must pay tuition using cash or money order. Weekly or payday payments may be arranged, please contact Lin Thomas at 949-240-6589.


Full time and part time fees are based on booked days, not attendance; therefore parents are responsible for fees whether the child attends or not. (This includes sick days, statutory holidays and vacation time). Any parent who gives a at least a two week notice of temporary withdrawal for family vacation will be allowed to make up these sessions during that same school year provided space is available. If a withdrawal of a child enrolled in the program is necessary, a one (1) month advanced written notice is required. Any paid tuition will not be refunded. Please see our Policy regarding Make-Up Days.
