A stringent pre-admission assessment will be implemented after the initial screening to ensure that the children are a good match to each other and benefit from the program. Here is what to do:
1. Call Mighty Oaks and make an appointment for a parental visit to meet our Director, Dr. Suvi Pitkola and view the premises (free of charge).
2. An individual screening appointment for the child with the Director. The cost is $220 and the appointment takes an hour, in the presence of the parents. The intake assessment is normally done informally through play. The assessment fee is non-refundable. Verbal feedback will be offered.
3. Program trial of 10 days, followed by a parent meeting to view videotapes of the child and discuss observations and recommendations ($2,400 for 10 days, includes a parent feedback meeting).
A fully refundable one-month deposit is required to secure place.
Children join the Mighty Oaks programs for one six-month term at a time. Short-term placements are accepted in some cases.Children may be admitted at any time, provided that a vacancy is available.
A notice period of 4 weeks is required for any change of days.
A notice of 8 weeks is required for a withdrawal in order to get the deposit refunded.
