ACH Automatic Recurring Payments are preferred, however, you may also pay fees via check, cash or money order. We do not accept credit card payments. Simply click on the link below, fill out the form and return via email to, or drop off in either office at your convenience.

ACH Authorization Form

All automatic recurring payments will be posted from on the 1st of each month (unless you specify otherwise, and you may choose any other date between the 1st-10th of each month), and will total your current outstanding charges. This will include monthly tuition and any other fees you may have incurred in the month prior.

Enrollment Fee:
An Enrollment fee is payable for all classes upon enrollment.  This fee is required to reserve your child's place in the program.  Under most circumstances, this fee is NON-REFUNDABLE. 
A cancellation refund of this fee will be made until September 1st only if:
  1. the child becomes chronically ill and unable to physically attend any school
  2. the family moves from the school area
  3. we are unable to place your child. 


After September 1st, this fee is non-refundable under any circumstances.


Tuition Payment Information:

Tuition payments are due by the 1st of each month (September-May).  There is a 10-day grace period to allow for weekends, illnesses, and holidays.  A $25.00 late fee will be applied automatically to all unpaid accounts on the 11th of each month. 


If tuition or fees remain unpaid by the 1st day of the following month, your child may not be allowed to attend school and his/her spot may be relinquished. 


Tuition is NON-REFUNDABLE and due in full each month regardless of absences or holidays.



Extended Care:


$7.00 per session (8:15 - 9 AM or 2:35 - 3:30 PM), per child.  $14.00 per day for both sessions.  If you are late to pick up your child from extended care, you will be charged an additional $5.00 for every 3 minutes after 3:30 PM.  Thank you for arriving by 3:30 PM to pick up your child! 


For your convenience, all extended care fees will be billed to students' accounts at this rate. 


If your child has not been picked up by 3:30 PM, we will begin contacting authorized adults on your child's enrollment list.


Extended Care sessions used during the month of May MUST be paid on or by the last day of preschool.  All accounts must be paid in full by the end of the school year.
