REGISTRATION: There is a non-refundable registration fee of $75.00. This fee is due with the application prior to a space being held for any new child.
MATERIAL FEE: There is a $30.00 material fee due each August prior to the beginning of the new fall session.
BEDROLL: Parents purchase bedrolls for $25.00. Bedrolls go home on Friday to be washed and return on Monday.
TUITION: Tuition payments must be paid on a weekly basis.
Tuition is due on Monday or the first day of your child’s attendance for that week. If desired, payments may be made for more than one week at a time, in advance. If tuition is not received, there will be a $5.00 late fee assessed on Tuesday and Wednesday.
If tuition is not received Wednesday evening, your child’s attendance will be terminated until full payment is made.
Full tuition must be paid when children are absent. Our school must maintain the continuous costs of staff salaries and program expenses.
Holidays are counted as days attended; no tuition discounts are given for holidays. Children enrolled in full or part-time programs must always pay tuition regardless of absences or holidays. Days missed in part-time programs may not be made up on alternate days due to licensed capacity and group enrollment.
VACATION POLICY: There is no credit for holidays, vacation, absence or illness.
NSF (NON-SUFFICIENT FUNDS) checks will be assessed a $30.00 charge the first time and a $50.00 charge the second time. Cash payments will be required for the payment of tuition after the second NSF check. Tiny Tot Preschool reserves the right to refuse services to families who have not paid tuition promptly. Depending upon when Christmas falls, there may be days when the school is open a few days before and after the holidays. In that case one weeks’ tuition is due for the two weeks, whether your child attends school or not.
LATE POLICY: Teachers are hired according to the hours the school is open. The school closes at 6:00 P.M. daily. Parents of children left at school will be assessed a $10.00 charge for every fifteen minutes.
