TUITION & COST
Active Learning Center 4 charges a one-time NON-refundable administration fee of $75.00 per family.
There is also an enrollment registration fee of $75.00 per child due at enrollment. (This payment may be made in installments but must be paid in full within 60 days of enrolling). This registration fee will be renewed each year in October.
Weekly tuition is due in advance before services are rendered. A late fee of $30.00 will be added to all past due balances. To provide the very best of care for our children all parents are expected to keep their balances current. If you terminate childcare services and are gone more than 90 days and wish to return to The Active Learning Center 4, you must pay a $25 re-application fee.
Each parent when enrolling must pay an amount equal to one week’s childcare as the last week of care security deposit. This payment may be made in installments but must be paid in full within 60 days of enrolling.
Tuition is expected for days your child may be absent due to illness, family emergencies, doctor visits, hospitalizations, vacations, or any other reason.
Please note that tuition rates do not change in the event of a week including a holiday. After extensive research, we have found our policy to be consistent with other schools and child day care centers. Because our costs remain the same throughout the year, we rely on the specified tuition to be paid each week in order to meet our expenses. Consequently, as much as we might like to, we cannot make allowance for any days missed in your regular attendance schedule.
Parents who are receiving DHS child care assistance must pay the full regular tuition rate until the authorizing paperwork is delivered to us for DHS billing. Upon our receipt of DHS payment, your account will be credited towards the following month. You are responsible to directly pay us your DHS co-pay each month. Rates may vary according to DHS disbursement. If DHS billing lapses it is your responsibility to pay the full tuition amount until DHS notifies us otherwise.
