We ask that you leave your child with his/her teacher at the classroom door. Additionally we ask that early pickups be kept to a minimum of 3 per semester in our older classes. Early pickups are disruptive to the class and the students miss important instruction.

Children will not be permitted to go home with anyone other than their usual ride without a written note from the parent. If there is an emergency and someone not listed on the release form is sent to pick up your child, you must phone the director and leave their name, description, and driver's license number.

**Writtten notification of any person who may pose a threat to your chld's safety or well-being must be submitted to the office and kept on file.

Tuition


Tuition is due on the first school day of each month. Unless prior arrangements have been made with the Director, a $50 late fee will be incurred if payment has not been made by the tenth of the month. If payment has not been received by the end of the month, your child will be suspended from the program until payment is paid.

The tuition fee is based on the number of days we are open during the year. This allows you to pay the same amount each month, eliminating higher costs in those months with more days in them.

Children will not be allowed to skip months. Children who miss a month or more will no longer be enrolled in our program. You may re-enroll your child at any time, provided there is availability. When re-enrolling, the enrollment fee must be paid again. Special consideration may be granted to persons in extreme situations, however these matters must be worked out with the Director in advance.
