Below you will find complete details on our calendar, schedule, tuition, application process, and more. 


How old do my children have to be?

We accept children between the ages of three and five years old.

How much is the school tuition?

First year tuition is $11,739 for 11 months (there is no 9.5 month tuition). Second year (pre-k)/continuing students, and incoming siblings of “Graduates”, pay less than the above, emphasizing that this is a two-year program.

What days/time is school in session?

School runs each day from 9:00am-12:45pm. You get to choose any three mornings per week, with four and five day a week schedules available by request.

What is your extended day policy?

Early arrival and staying until 4pm require prior arrangement. The cost is $12 if a child needs to arrive before school starts at 9:00am, and $35 until 4pm.


When are the children on vacation?

The Gazelle Creative Learning School calendar is coordinated with the school district calendars of Burlingame, Hillsborough and San Mateo-Foster City elementary school districts. The 2019-2020 school year calendar can be found here, including key dates such as photo day, graduation day, and more. 

What is the registration process?

  1. Call or email today to schedule an in-person classroom visit. 
  2. You will be contacted to schedule an appointment for the all morning visit by both parents. 
  3. Mail in, right away, ahead of time, the visiting appointment deposit of $80* (1 week advance notification, at least, to reschedule) which will be applied to the class reservation fee. * Non-Refundable
  4. After the visit, mail in the $220* class reservation fee, clearly indicating: who referred you; which three days per week you prefer; and your child’s birth date (boys 3 years and 3 months to begin, girls begin at 3 years). 
  5. You will be contacted prior to starting, to send in the second (pre-k) year reservation fee ($1,800*) which is fully applicable to the second (pre-k) year’s tuition.  The waiting list fee for a filled class is $100*.  Enrollment forms will be emailed approximately four months prior to starting so that shot records and doctor's information will be up to date.
