A registration fee of $100 is charged upon enrollment in the program and each spring during re-enrollment to secure a spot for your child in the new school year, which begins in September. There is no tuition credit for non-attendance or illness and no make-up days will be permitted. If you re-enroll your child and if your account is presently current before May 1st, you may submit just $50 of the re-enrollment fee instead of $100 as a “thank you” gift.

_____ Vacation Policies

Initials Children who are removed from the program for vacations will receive credit for up to two weeks per school year (Sept. 1 – Aug. 31), with no more than one week allowable at a time. Credit amounts will be $240/wk. for full day 5-day children; $180 for full day 3-day children; $130 for full day 2-day children. All variations of this will be prorated by our bookkeeper. No further credit will be given for more time off; full tuition must be paid. Parents who leave for more than 4 consecutive weeks may choose to withdraw their child and pay a registration fee upon re-enrollment, however, the child’s space will not be held during the absence and there will be no guaranteed re-entry without full payment.

_____ Withdrawal/Termination Policies

Initials Upon withdrawal or schedule change, a two-week written notice is required. Tuition will be prorated to the withdrawal date, or in the absence of a written notice, two weeks after the withdrawal.

Early Learning Academy Preschool reserves the right to terminate a child’s enrollment due to non-payment of fees, behavior problems, lack of parental support, or for any other reason, with no refund given.

_____ Late Pick Up

Initials There is a late pick up charge of $10.00 per child for 1-10 minutes (or each portion of an hour) of extra time from 12:00 – 6:00 pm for half day children who are picked up late. For anyone who picks up a child after 6:00 pm, there is a charge of $20 per child for late pick up from 6:01 to 6:05, plus an additional $1 per minute from 6:06 or later.
