About Tiger Tots

GENERAL INFORMATION

At Tiger Tots, we provide a safe, nurturing learning environment for children from the ages of 18 months to 6 years.

Our programs have been designed to follow North American standards, and we provide age-appropriate educational goals, values, and philosophies which are implemented within a challenging and exciting learning environment. Play sets the stage for learning and provides the medium through which the children may imitate, explore, test ideas, acquire information, and draw conclusions.

Our experienced, caring personnel emphasize and foster a positive self-image while encouraging uniqueness within socialization. The unique interests of each child are used as a guide for inquiries and exploration within the classroom.

Tiger Tots also offers weekly gymnastics, music, and Kidsportz (4s and 5s) by TYPA specialized instructors. In addition, Mandarin classes are available for those students who want to acquire a new language or improve their first language.

About Our Community of Learners

All of our teachers are qualified educators, many of whom have been with Tiger Tots for several years. They work as a team to develop and implement meaningful and engaging programs for children, based on emergent curriculum planning techniques.

Our teachers and teaching assistants are dedicated to participation in ongoing professional development and are also committed to, and encourage, active parent involvement and communication.

Together, our love for children and the quality of education we offer creates a wonderful community of learners.

Registration

Prospective families should fill out a waiting list application form which can be downloaded off the TYPA web site or picked up at the front desk at either campus. There is no fee for waiting list placement. Upon completion of the form, new families may be contacted for a required visitation before registration.

A non–refundable registration fee of $15,000 per semester is required for each child upon his/her acceptance into the program.

Tuition for Fall semester must be paid in full by June 29. Tuition for Spring semester must be paid in full upon registration in November. No refunds or credits will be given (toward TYPA or Tiger Tots programs) after tuition due dates unless families are leaving Taiwan. If tuition is not paid by the due date, it will be assumed the child will not attend. If parents choose to take a vacation during scheduled school days, tuition will not be refunded or credited for the child’s time away from preschool.

All Tiger Tots class fees cover one full semester. Classes are available once a minimum number of participants have been reached.

Withdrawal Policy

A minimum of two weeks written notice is required for withdrawal from all Tiger Tots programs.

Please inquire at the TYPA office for a withdrawal form or download one from the TYPA website. Families who must leave Tiger Tots because of relocation to another country may receive a tuition refund for the amount of the semester not used.

If the family relocates, a refund will only be issued if the withdrawal is before October 12, 2018 for the Fall Semester or March 15, 2019 for the Spring Semester. The registration fee is non-refundable.

Lunch

A hot lunch is available for full day children. Tiger Tots Place provides fresh fruit and orders lunches from local vendors who has proven to demonstrate hygienic food preparation and provide healthy lunch choices.

We order lunches from Taipei American School food services for Pre-K and K children. Lunch orders are placed in advance per semester. Parents can choose to send in a home lunch or a mixture or both choices for their child as well.

Locations

Drop Off & Pick Up

At both campuses, children may be dropped off between 8:30am and 9:00am. If you are driving, please be sure to allow our staff to safely transport your child from the car into school. We respectfully ask that children arrive to school on time and are picked up promptly at the end of class time.
