Step 3

Ensuring Your Child's Registration with Right At School Subsidy

Before we get started, it’s important to note that your child isn’t officially registered and able to attend our programs until two key steps are completed:

Sending Your Approval Letter: Your child’s journey with Right At School begins when we receive your approval letter. Without it, we can’t complete the registration process.

Registering in the Family Portal: Alongside your approval letter, you’ll need to register your child in our Family Portal. This step is crucial for finalizing their enrollment.

Once these steps are done, you’re well on your way to joining the Right At School family! Let’s dive into the details…

Step 4

Taking the Next Steps with Right At School Subsidy

So, you’ve received your approval letter – congratulations! 🎉 Now, let’s make sure you’re all set to join us at Right At School. Here’s what to do next:

  1. Send Us Your Approval Letter: Got that approval letter handy? Great! Share it with our subsidy team by sending it here. This lets us know you’re ready to get started.
  2. Register with Us: If you haven’t already, it’s time to register your child for our program. When you do, make sure to select the “discount” option and choose “subsidy”. Easy peasy!
  3. Fill in the Details: During registration, you’ll be asked for some information from your approval letter, like the Agency name and voucher number. Pop those in, click Finish, and you’re on your way! You’ll then be placed in our subsidy queue.
  4. Await Our Response: Within 24-48 hours, one of our friendly Subsidy Coordinators will reach out to you. We’re here to help make this process smooth sailing for you and your family!
  5. Verification Time: While you’re in the subsidy queue, we’ll need to verify your registration with the state approval/voucher letter you sent us. This helps us ensure everything aligns perfectly.
  6. Get Approved: Once we’ve confirmed your registration and received your approval letter, we’ll update your registration to reflect your approval. Almost there!
  7. Final Touches: Log back into the Right At School Family Portal and add your payment information. This covers any registration fees or copays required by the state. Don’t worry, if your care is covered 100%, you won’t be charged unless your state coverage changes.

And that’s it! You’re all set to join the Right At School family. 🌟 If you have any questions along the way, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team. We’re here to help make your experience with us as smooth and enjoyable as possible!
