Girls have the option of wearing a red or blue dress purchased at Robcyns and may wear white tights underneath in cold weather.
Security Deposits & Withdrawals: We require an extra payment of two weeks tuition at time of registration to ensure the child is not withdrawn suddenly and without notice. This amount will be refunded at time of withdrawal if written notice is provided to the School 30 days in advance. The child may be re-enrolled upon payment of a new registration fee.
Tuition Due Date: Tuition is due every other Monday, two weeks at a time, in advance. We require that you pay by direct deduction from your checking account. No checks or credit cards will be accepted. When payment is not received on the due date, a $40 late charge will be assessed. There is also a $40 fee for all payment charge backs received. If an account becomes more than 2 weeks past due, we will be forced to terminate services.

Adjustment for Classroom Change: When a child is transitioning to a new classroom, the tuition rate is that of the “old” classroom. The tuition changes to that of the “new” classroom when the child begins his or her first complete two weeks in the new group.
Late Pickup Fees: Children picked up after 6 p.m. will incur a late fee. The charge is $20 per family for the first ten minutes after closing, and $1 per minute past the first ten-minute interval. This fee is due at the time the child is picked up.
