CENTER POLICIES

Weekly Payments

All tuition payments are due in advance each week.

Tuition not paid in advance will have a $5.00 service charge added each day tuition is past due.

Monthly Payments

If you opt to pay tuition by the month, monthly rates are calculated at 4.33 times weekly rate.

A 2% discount will be given if monthly payments are paid in advance by the first day of each month.

Additional Children Discount

When more than one child from the same family is enrolled, a reduction of 10% will be allowed for each additional child’s tuition.

If one tuition is less than another, the 10% will be deducted from the lower tuition rate.

Vacation Leave

A maximum of two free weeks of vacation are allowed during each twelve month period of enrollment, if the center has been notified at least two weeks in advance of vacation. If two weeks notice has not been given 50% of total tuition will be billed.

Free vacation days must be taken in one or two week increments. Occasional days must be paid for in full.

Additional vacation weeks will require a payment of 50% of your child’s tuition rate to reserve the space.

Spaces not reserved may be filled by a new enrollee.

A new registration fee will be required to restart your child if his/her space was not reserved.

Sick Days

No allowance is given for individual sick days. A child who is sick three or more consecutive days will receive a 40% reduction in tuition for those days only.

No make up days are permitted for absence due to illness.

Schedule Changes

Schedule changes are accommodated when possible. A two week notice must be given in writing, when the schedule change is a decrease in hours or days per week. Your current tuition rate will be charged for a two week period following written notification.
