Tuition/Payment

Tuition & Fee Policy

The Preschool is a non-profit organization. Fees are payable in advance of actual school time. When a child is enrolled, we assume it is for the entire school year, or the balance thereof. If however, he/she must be taken out of school, a two week notice is required. When your child is absent from the school, you may keep his/her place only by continuing the fee payment. Because tuition is based on annual rates, there are no reductions for months in which there are fewer class days, such as December, June, etc. If there is a financial problem, speak to the Director prior to the due date.

Tuition is paid in ten (10) equal payments, September through June, including month’s with holidays. Tuition is due on the first day of each month. A monthly statement will be placed in your child’s cubbies as a reminder that tuition is due. Checks should be made payable to “Weekday Preschool”. A Registration Fee, plus the last month’s tuition is required when the Admissions Agreement is signed. This assures a place for your child in the program. The Registration Fee is non-refundable; however, the last month’s tuition is refundable if the school receives notice of withdrawal by June 1st (prior to the new school year starting in September). After that time, and until September 1st, the last month’s tuition is refunded if the space is filled. After the school year begins, and provided that a minimum of 2-week notice has been given, the last month’s tuition deposit is refundable once the space is filled. After April 1st, there are no refunds in tuition
