For welfare purposes, parents are responsible for ensuring that their children are dropped off and picked up by an adult – regardless of the age of your children. Unlike a regular school, Pear Tree students cannot arrive or leave unaccompanied, unless this has been agreed by Pear Tree’s directors.
Drop Off Time
Unless you are registered for our Pre-Camp service, student arrival time should be no earlier than 8.50am. If children arrive earlier, parents must remain with their children until 8.50am, at which time the children can enter the classroom.
As with most public/private schools, students at Pear Tree are expected to be in class from 9am – 3pm. We do not offer the flexible hours of daycares.
Parents are welcome to wait in our reception area until 9.30am, but cannot remain in the classroom once the class has begun.
Late Pick Up
Pear Tree Education reserves the right to charge a fee for after-camp supervision in the event of very late pick up.
Pear Tree must be informed, in advance, of the details of any person (or changes in person) that will be picking up your child, whether this be a relative, nanny, or family friend. You can do this by email, or speak to one of Pear Tree’s managers.
