Our preschool program follows a nine-month school year, beginning at the end of August and continuing into mid May. Each school year is broken into three, 11-week sessions. Fees and tuition are paid per session. Students currently enrolled retain priority to secure their enrollment for the entire school year.

Withdrawal and Cancellation


Services provided by the City of Dublin Preschools, which do not meet the needs of the child as determined by the parent(s) and/or the Recreation Supervisor, may be withdrawn by either party.  Cause for the Recreation Supervisor to withdraw include, but are not limited to:
  • A child having physical, emotional, behavioral, or psychological disorders that are beyond the capabilities and/or expertise of the teaching staff as determined by the Recreation Supervisor.
  • Parent(s) or guardian in disagreement, or non-support, of the Preschool’s philosophy of education, discipline, and/or policies and procedures.
  • Family members and adults acting on their behalf who exhibit behavior endangering the children, other families, or staff.
Any fees associated with such withdrawals will be returned on a pro-rated basis, less a $5 processing fee.

Withdrawal requests must be made in-person at the Shannon Community Center, 11600 Shannon Avenue or by email.  

Credits and Refunds


No credit is given for regularly-scheduled school holidays and vacation periods.  In addition, no credits are given for any days a child is absent due to illness or vacation.  You may cancel a class for a full refund (less a 10-cent processing fee) if done online up to 7 days prior to the start date or up to 4 business days in person (less a $5 processing fee).  Refunds may take up to 30 business days to receive.
