Notice to Families 

Dear Early Childhood Center Families,

As discussed in our previous email on March 19, 2020, we are following the guidance of the Conejo Valley Unified School District (CVUSD).  As the Ventura County Superintendent of Schools (VCOE) and the Superintendent of CVUSD have made the decision to keep schools, including CVUSD preschool programs, closed for the remainder of the academic school year, we will also keep our Center closed at least through the remainder of the CVUSD school year, which is through June 12.

I know the past few weeks have been stressful and can feel overwhelming, as we navigate through these new experiences, so please know that we make this decision with careful consideration for the health and safety of you, your children and our community as a whole.  The Center remains in compliance with CA State Licensing as they provide guidance to preschools and childcare centers during the “stay at home”.    

We will continue to update you as new information becomes available and closures continue or we re-open. Information regarding summer programming will be shared as soon as we have guidance on re-opening or a possible closure extension. Tuition will not be due until further notice.

I will be emailing you more information regarding transitions and celebrations on Monday, April 6, 2020.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.  You may also visit our website for Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).   

Stay safe and be well,
COVID-19 Closure FAQs
What exactly does pro-rated tuition mean? Is anything due for April? 

No tuition is due for April, since we remain closed through May 4.  For now, the March two-week closure will be deducted from any tuition due when the Center reopens.

What about the 2020-2021 school year registration process? Is this on hold?

If you have filled out the registration form, you may mail it to me or email it to me.  Registration fees can be paid online.  My mailing address is:  60 W. Olsen Rd. #7400, Thousand Oaks, CA 91360.

Have the teachers been financially impacted due to "pro-rated tuition"? 

Our teachers have not been financially impacted by our closure.

When will the preschool open?

See message above for details.  The Center will remain closed until at least May 4. 


This nurturing environment allows children to develop the physical, social, emotional, cognitive, spiritual, and creative skills that begin preparing them to live in a global and diverse community.

After reviewing our website, please feel free to call us at (805) 493-3247 if you have any additional questions. We look forward to having you as part of our school family!
