WORK EXCHANGE PROGRAM 

What is the Work Exchange Program?  

 

Madrone’s Work Exchange Program (or WEP) provides an

opportunity for families to exchange work hours at the school for a discount on tuition. 

 

How to Get Started - To sign up for the WEP program, please send an email to Ms. Krista at www.madronemontessori@gmail.com">www.madronemontessori@gmail.com.  Please review the list of available jobs and let us know which open job you would like to sign up for.  If the job you’re interested is currently filled, we will add you to the “wish list” for that job and will let you know if it becomes available during the school year.  In the meantime, you can select one of the open jobs to complete your monthly WEP hours.

 

How to Reschedule - The School relies on WEP families to complete their assigned jobs at the allotted times.  If your plans change and you cannot show up, please inform the office and the WEP Coordinator as soon as possible.    Please bear in the mind that last minute cancellations are disruptive to the School environment, and therefore the School requests at least 48 hours advance notice of any changes in your work schedule.   Cancellations and/or no-shows may result in (i) your job being reassigned to another WEP family, (ii) your suspension from the Work Exchange Program, and/or (iii) any discount given for the month becoming immediately due and payable.

 

How do I get Credit for my Work? - After you complete your WEP job for the month, please sign the Work Exchange Program Sign-In Log located at the sign-in area of the Lavender Room.  The Sign-In Log is printed at the beginning of each month, so if your job was scheduled mid-month, it will not appear in the log.  In this case, please sign in the margin next to the day you worked and include a brief description of your work, the number of hours of your work and your initials.  If you have more than one WEP job, please sign the Sign-In Log separately after completing each job.  The log is the School’s record of your hours, so if you do not sign the log, you may not receive credit for the hours you worked during the month. 

This program is currently unavailable due to the observation of COVID-19 precautions.
