Tuition Rates for 2020-2021
Current tuition rates are listed below and updated annually
Upon admission to Carriage House Children’s Center, a $500 deposit is required. This deposit is nonrefundable, but may be credited against the last tuition payment of your child’s enrollment at the Center, provided all contractual agreements are met. A sibling discount of 5% of the tuition for the oldest child is offered to families with more than one child enrolled. In order to receive the discount, the children must be enrolled full-time for twelve months for the Infant & Toddler program and nine months for the Preschool/Kindergarten program.
Tuition may be paid by cash or check monthly and are due by the 5th of each month.
Financial Agreement Terms for 2020-2021 School Year
The Center provides a developmentally appropriate program, including rest, lunch, and an AM and PM snack. Tuition cannot be deducted for days absent. Tuition is not charged for days the Center is closed (see calendar). Yearly tuition is prorated over the number of contracted months. Payments are due the fifth of each month. A late fee of $15.00 is charged after that date. Adding extra hours will necessitate a change in tuition. A $25 fee will be charged for any changes to this agreement.
The admission deposit may be credited against the last tuition payment of the child’s enrollment at the Center, provided all contractual agreements are met. If circumstances necessitate withdrawing the child from the program before the end date of this agreement, parents are responsible for two months’ tuition after the child’s last day. The deposit, however, is not refundable.
Staffing is based on the hours that you requested. We require that you follow that schedule and make a request if you need to make a change so we can adjust staffing. All children must be picked up promptly by their scheduled departure time. There will be a charge of $10 per ten-minute interval if you are late picking up your child beyond the program closing times of 1:00 PM, 3:30 PM or 5:00PM. The Center opens at 8:00 a.m. and closes promptly at 5:00 p.m.
We understand that our child will only be released to the individuals listed on the emergency contact form.
Carriage House strives to provide safe childcare during this pandemic. We reserve the right to close for any reason that we feel is in the best interest of our staff and children’s safety. This may include, but is not limited to, mandates from state or local public health officials, difficulty obtaining the supplies & equipment necessary for care, increased student and/or staff absenteeism, quarantining of classrooms, or closure for cleaning due to a positive COVID-19 case in the facility.
If the Center needs to close for any of the reasons listed above, parents are responsible for paying tuition for the month in which the closure takes place. If the closure extends into the following month, parents are responsible for that month’s tuition as well. Should the Center remain closed beyond this time-frame, tuition will not be charged.
