In the event of such withdrawal, neither the deposit nor any pre-paid tuition payments will be refunded.

Payments are due by the First of each month. A late fee of $25 will be assessed for payments not received by the 5th of each month. If payment, plus late fee, is not received by the 15th of the month, your child will not be able to return to the program on the next program day. Special arrangements for payments may be made by calling the Child Care Department. Payments in arrears will be turned over to our collection agency.
