*PDF file is not usable as-is, but can be used with another word processor to copy language and format.

1. Read through the handbook.

2. Change items highlighted in yellow to suit your program.

3. Change any other items!

4. Don’t forget to update the calendar and tuition agreement attached at the end!

5. We recommend that you use this in combination with our Minimalist Contract, as these items were meant to be used together. However, having families sign the tuition agreement is the most basic form of a typical service contract.

6. We also recommend updating and re-signing handbook annually.
