A Message from the School Directress
Welcome to Integrated School for Young Children (ISYC)
Thank you for considering ISYC for your child’s future. We are a private, co-educational early childhood learning center modeled on standards of developmentally appropriate practices as set by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), USA. Since 2001, our deeply committed teachers and staff have inspired our students every day with extraordinary learning experiences. Driven with our shared passion for igniting curiosity and a joy for learning, we provide a challenging and nurturing learning environment where all children are empowered to develop their unique talents and flourish within a community,
At ISYC, our admissions process builds a personal relationship as we learn about you, and as you explore how our program might be a good fit for your family and child. So we invite you to visit our school, meet our warm and inclusive community members, and take some time to imagine your journey here at ISYC.
Children 1.10 to 5.11 years by June are eligible to enroll without regard to sex, race, religion, or national origin. Exclusion could occur if an ISYC staff or parent feels that the child would be unable to benefit from the program due to health, physical or emotional non-adjustment issues.
The admissions procedure is designed to provide parents with the opportunity to learn more about ISYC, our philosophy and policies and our staff. We think of our admission as enrolling families, not just students, and our goal is to connect with families who will both benefit from and contribute to what the school has to offer.
Students at ISYC are enrolled for the school year in June, although exceptions can sometimes be made, space permitting. Some of our students start with our Summer Program/s in April or May and transition into the school year in June. By attending our Summer Programs, the children are familiarized with the school setting and have friends when they walk into new classrooms.
The admissions procedure includes four steps:
Step 1: Parents call to set up a day to visit ISYC with their child. Contact with ISYC may be made in several ways:
Telephone: 997-2010, 998-2009, 546-8693
Postal Address: Lot 5, Block 4, Centro de Buenviaje, Gil Fernando Avenue Sto. Nino, Marikina City 1800
Step 2: Parents take a tour of the facility with their child and observe the program. Our staff will guide parents in selecting the program and schedule that meets their child’s developmental needs. When parents visit the program, they are advised to inform the staff if their child has any special needs.
Step 3: If Parents are interested in enrolling their child, a reservation fee of P5,000.00 must be made to ISYC. Please note that the reservation fee is non-refundable but deductible from your last tuition payment.
Step 4: Once reserved, you will get the following forms:
- Student Information Sheet
- Confidential Information Sheet
- School Health Record Form
- Enrollment Procedure
Step 5: Parents should bring their child to school during the assigned day of assessment and submit all requirements for admission, including the validated tuition payment slip of the tuition plan of choice.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR PARENTS
To ensure you get your choice of schedule, reserve as early as possible. We place your child in sessions on a first come, first served basis. Once a class is filled, a waiting list is started, also on a first come, first served basis. If and when space is available in a class, the parents will be advised immediately and asked to confirm that they still wish their child to enter ISYC. Parents confirming their continued interest in having their child attend ISYC will be required to pay the reservation fee within two working days.
School fees consist of an annual basic fee for Tuition, Miscellaneous and Other Fees. These fees may be revised at any time during the school year.
Tuition fees may be paid annually or in two, three or four payments, with each installment being paid on the first school day of every month.
