About Us


Children six weeks to twelve years of age are welcome for admissions. Pre-Admissions process includes a school tour. Enrollment is offered based on available spots.

Briarwood Children's House believes that social, racial, religious and cultural diversity in the community culture contributes greatly to the value of the school experience. Briarwood admits children of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all rights, privleges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to the children at the school. BCH does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of the school's educational policies, admission policies, and other school-administered programs.

Financial Policies

BCH reserves the right to revise any fees and/or policies with prior posted notice


Tuition is deducted weekly through automated debit processing. We use Tuition Express to ensure financial stability for the school. Should you be opposed to automated processing a request may be made to pay with cash or check. An additional $5 a week handling fee is added to weekly tuition for manual processing.

Returned Checks

Your account will be charged a $35 service fee on all returned checks. Returned checks will not be re-deposited. Cash payment is required for all NSF checks. Tuition in the amount of the NSF check will re-charged to your account and must be rectified into a zero balance Friday of the same week. After two (2) NSF checks, cash or money orders will be required. Cancelled checks will be returned after payment.

New & Annual Registration

A $40 registration fee per child is due upon original enrollment into our program and every year on your enrollment anniversary date. The registration fee is NON-REFUNDABLE. This fee holds a place for your child as others may be turned away.

Activity Fee

Activity fee is allocated for educational supplies and field trips. We strive to provide the highest quality of learning materials and equipment in our classroom environments. A detailed list of new materials purchased for the children will be published for our parents each September.

Graduation Fee

A $25 graduation fee is due in May for each child participating in our preschool/graduation end of year ceremony. This fee helps us cover the cost of putting on our graduation ceremony at Massabesic High School auditorium.

Late Pick-Up Fee

Children must be picked up and departed from BCH by 6:30 pm. A late pick-up fee of $5 per child, per each five-minute period the child remains in BCH after 6:30 p.m will be charged to the family and paid to the staff member who stays to care for the children.

Withdrawal Notice

In case of withdrawal of a child from BCH, a two-week written notice must be completed. If this notice is not given, an additional two-weeks tuition is due to BCH.

Parent Referral Credit

Refer a new family to BCH and become eligible for a $50 tuition credit. You will receive a $50 credit for each newly enrolled child you refer. The child must attend for two weeks before your credit is applied to your account.
