Tuition and Fees

TUITION

Payment will be due on the 1st and 16th day of each month and may be deposited in the designated box outside the Director’s office.

If payment is late, parents have five days to make payment. If a payment is not made on the fifth day the child will not be admitted to the Center. Parents have an additional five days to make total payment. If payment is not received by the 10th day, the child’s space is terminated. Repeated offenses of late payments will result in the loss of the grace period. If payment is made beyond the fifth day more than two times in a three-month period, parents will be required to make payment on the 1st and 16th or the child will not be admitted without payment on the 2nd and 17th. Payments received more than five days late will be assessed a late fee of $10.00.

A 10% discount is offered to families with more than one child enrolled. The discount will apply to the older child.

REGISTRATION FEE

A non-refundable fee of $70 is charged to all new applicants at the time of registration.

MEMBERSHIP FEE

A $10 cooperative membership fee is assessed at the time of registration. This is charged as a one-time fee, and will ensure your membership in the cooperative, which gives you one vote at the time of the election of the Board of Directors.

WITHDRAWAL

A two-week written notice must be given to the Director when a child is withdrawn from the Center. Failure to give adequate notice shall result in a forfeiture of the deposit.

Tuition is due through the last day of attendance and any outstanding payments will be deducted from the deposit. The deposit will be returned by mail.

LATE PICK UP

Late pick up of children beyond the scheduled closing time will result in a charge of $15.00 for any part of the period 6:05 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. and $5.00 for any part of each 15 minute increment beyond that time. The clock in the Director’s office will be the determining clock. Payment is due at the time of pick-up.

CHECK CHARGE

Parents will be charged a fee of $25 if a check is returned for insufficient funds. If more than two checks are returned during the year, cash payment, certified check or money order will be required to cover the amount of the dishonored check and fee. If more than two checks are returned during the year, this method of payment may be required for the remainder of the year.
