About Tiger Tots

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 from the TYPA website 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 30. 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 has 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 16, 2020 for the fall semester or before March 19, 2021 for the spring semester. The registration fee is non-refundable.
