  • We do not accept cash at this location. All enrolled families must use our automated payment system "Tuition Express"

  • All tuition must be paid by Monday (for the first day of care) at drop off time for the current week of services. If payment is not received by Monday at pickup time a late payment fee will be applied to your account at the rate of $10 per day. In order to ensure accurate supplies to keep a daycare running, tuition must be paid on time.

  • Your children must be picked up on time daily according to the schedule you have chosen. All pick-ups after the 10 hour schedule your child is on will incur a late charge of $1 per minute, and must be paid upon arrival.

  • Please understand that you are not paying by the week or day. You are paying for an open spot at our center. If we have to cancel school for a weather day or Holiday you are still expected to pay for your Childs spot.
