About Lunch Bunch

Lunch Bunch is offered after the regular preschool hours (12:30 to 2:45) for children who are enrolled in our 3 year old, VPK and Stepping Stones classes.  Children will eat lunch between 12:30-1:00. Each child will need to bring their lunch; please have their name marked on their lunch box. (We are not able to heat lunches).  They will proceed between the hours of 1:00 to 2:45 to their “special” class. Lunch Bunch offerings typically include Spanish, fitness, cooking, science, music, art, and more. Each class will be 1/2 hour and instructed by a Bright Beginnings staff member.

Parent pick up will be at 2:45 via the Car Line (weather permitting).   If the wind sock is hanging, this means the weather is not suitable for car line pick up – please come in the building to retrieve your child.

Signups are now done online only, via SignUp Genius:  You will see how many spots are remaining and once they are gone, we will begin to keep a wait list. Please note that when you sign up via SignUp Genius, we are going to charge your card on file in September. If you do not cancel with us we will assume you will be in attendance. Please sign up using your child’s first and last name and your email and contact info.

Fees (in addition to tuition):

Price for 3 year olds and VPK is $50 per month per day.  For example, if you pick Mondays and Thursdays it would be $100.00 a month added to your tuition. If you pick all five days, you receive a discount ($225 a month/all 5 days).  Stepping Stones Students tuition is $30 per month per day added to regular monthly tuition.

Lunch Bunch payments will be made monthly via Tuition Express, or half year and full year payments will be accepted as well. Lunch Bunch begins on August 27, 2018 and the first payment will be due on September 15th. If you need to drop a day of lunch bunch we require a two week notice and must receive your drop request in WRITTEN form. Disruptive behavior in lunch bunch can not be tolerated and the discipline policies that are in effect during preschool hours will also apply to Lunch Bunch.
