How long does a preschool have to refund my deposit if I pulled my son out because all the teachers in his class of 27 students quit?

Question Details: I was recently made aware that all of my son's pre-k teachers quit just weeks before school starts. It is part of a bigger problem with the owner as the whole office staff has also left over the last 4-5 months. They will be out of ratio once school starts. They have gone from having a staff of 11 to a staff of 4 which is clearly not suffecient to care for 2 classes of 22-27 and 2 classes of 12-13. how long does the owner have by law to refund me? Are there any additional steps I can take myself?
