    Weekly Tuition

    As you are reserving a space in Pirate’s Cove, please note the cost is $60 per child per week. Whether your child attends or not, you are responsible for tuition payments. Tuition payments are due on Monday each week or the first school day during the week. Tuition is billed through My Payments Plus monthly, but a minimum of $60 can be paid weekly. Monthly tuition fees are calculated by counting the number of Mondays there are in that month (with the exception of the first month as the first week of attendance was previously paid with the enrollment fee).  All payments for Pirate’s Cove must be made using  https://www.mypaymentsplus.com


    Please note that we DO allow devices, but Pirates Cove/Poole’s Mill is not responsible for them. Each child is responsible for their own belongings.


    A structured homework/reading time is allotted daily for all students. We will work with students to document their required daily 30 minutes of “home reading” if they bring a book and their log. In addition, it is the child’s responsibility to know if they have homework/reading to complete.


    Kindergarten and first graders PLEASE keep a change of clothes in their backpack. Please dress your child appropriately for the weather and according to school regulations.
