The yearly tuition is set in accordance with a budget which has been approved by the Board of Directors.
There will be a non-refundable registration fee of $60 per family for those families registering before June 1 for the school year or $70 per family for those families registering after June 1 for the school year, plus a $30 special events fee to cover the cost of field trips and the vision and hearing screening. There is an additional $30 snack fee to cover the cost of snacks and juice.
The first month’s tuition is by the first day of school. Tuition is due by the first of each month. A late fee of $10 per month will be charged if tuition is paid after the tenth of any month. These charges will be added to the next month’s tuition.
Cash payments should be handed directly to a teacher in an envelope with the child’s name on it. Checks/money orders can be placed in the tuition box, handed to a teacher or mailed. Tuition must be paid monthly even if the child is not in attendance due to illness or extenuating circumstances.
If tuition is one month past due, the child may be dropped from the Preschool at the consideration of the Board of Directors. If tuition is one month past due and the following month's tuition is not paid by the first of that month, all tuition due to the Preschool must be paid by the tenth of that month, or the child may be permanently dropped from the Preschool program. The Board of Directors will determine this on a case-by-case basis. Any late tuition payments throughout the rest of the school year will be grounds for being dropped as well, unless the Board of Directors is notified in advance and terms are agreed upon for payment.
One month tuition will be forfeited if the child is withdrawn without two weeks advance notice. Tuition will be prorated and a refund made upon a teacher requested withdrawal.
When parents/guardians are separated/divorced or living in separate households, one parent must be solely responsible for meeting the financial obligation of fees and tuition payments while their child is enrolled. Partial, shared, or alternating tuition payments from parents/guardians are not permitted.
It is very important that you pick up your child from school on time. Teachers need time to prepare and clean the classroom for the next class. Also, children often begin to worry when they are not picked up on time. We recommend arriving a couple of minutes early, so that you are there when class is dismissed.
There will be a $1.00 per minute late fee for picking up your child late after class. The Preschool has the right to drop a student from the program for continuous offenses.
