School Year Enrollment and Billing Calendar
Begins mid-August and runs through the Friday before Memorial Day

Tuition billing and payments are handled electronically. Parents need to turn in a voided check and debit authorization form at registration. Drafts for weekly payments will be initiated on the Friday after receiving your bill for tuition. Drafts for families paying on a monthly basis will be on the 15th of the month (August – April).

Discounts
Parents may choose to pay a non-refundable one-time tuition payment for the entire year and receive a 5% discount. (August 15)
Two non-refundable semester payments may also be made (August 15 and January 1) with a 2% discount per semester

No School Day Care for the School Age Program
A signup sheet for care will be posted at least one week prior to a planned no school day. The last day to sign up or remove a student’s name is three school days before the no school day. (For example, parents have until Tuesday to sign up for a scheduled no school day that falls on a Monday.)
The daily rate shown in the fee schedule below will be charged to all students who sign up for care. This charge will be made even if the student does not show up.
The weekly flat rate shown in the fee schedule below applies whether a student attends or not. No discount is given if the student does not attend.

Because St. John Child Development Center is an educational program, not just daycare, fees and tuition for the total program are calculated for an entire school year and then paid for by the month instead of by the day. If a child is absent for illness, vacation, etc. tuition rates remain the same. No refunds are given for illness, vacations or no school days. Those days will not be made up. Please see the calendar for the dates the St. John Child Development Center is in session.

Non-Refundable Registration Fee:
Summer – $20.00
2018-2019 school year – $50.00

Wait List Fee: non-refundable $45.00 (applies to registration fee at the time of enrollment)

Non-sufficient Funds Fee: A $25 service fee will be charged on all returned debits. If a debit is returned, you will need to pay your tuition with cash or money order within five days of notification.

Late Payment Fee: Payments received after five days will be assessed a $25 late fee. Accounts that are past due more than two weeks will result in suspension of child care until the account is paid in full. We will reserve your child’s space for one week. If payment is not received by the fifth day of suspension, services will be terminated. If for some reason you find you are unable to pay the tuition, please contact the director. We are more than happy to work out a suitable arrangement with you.

Late Pick Up Fee: Parents/guardians picking up their children after the 6:00 p.m. closing time will be charged $7.50 per child every 15 minutes. This does not mean that families have the option of using childcare past 6:00 p.m. The late fee is to discourage late pick up.

Families arriving after 6:00 p.m. after three different occasions may be asked to make other childcare arrangements that more adequately meet the hours needed for childcare.

Preschool Only parents/guardians dropping off or picking up their children more than fifteen minutes before or after the designated preschool only time will be charged $7.50 per child every 15 minutes.
