Rainbow Steps Preschool Page 12 Parent Handbook Fees and Tuition A registration fee of $75.00 is charged. This is not part of tuition and is usually not refundable. The fee will be refunded in the event that a family will be moving out of town and we are notified before August 1. • The cost of a child’s participation in Rainbow Steps is calculated on a full school year basis, September-May. The amount of tuition due will remain the same during the current school year, regardless of vacation, holidays, illness of a child, or school closings due to weather, funerals or other scheduled church events. • It is understood that children will be picked up at the end of their session, but we understand that occasionally a parent or caregiver may be delayed. We do not charge a fee for the occasional late pick-up. If late pick-ups happen consistently, a fee of $10 for each 15 minutes will be charged. In the event that it is necessary for parents to withdraw their child, we request two weeks notice. By doing so, tuition reimbursement will be given for any fees paid beyond the date of withdrawal. If less than two weeks notice is given, the school will retain two weeks tuition before reimbursement is made. Fees • Tuition is due by the 10th day of each month. You may pay bi-monthly or several months at a time. Call the office to make alternate payment arrangements. If tuition is more than 10 days late, a late fee of $10 will be charged. • If tuition is not received for two consecutive months, and parents have not contacted the administrators regarding the tuition, the child will be excluded from participating in class until payment arrangements are made. We understand that unusual situations arise, and we do want to work with parents so that children can stay in preschool. • If payment is not made, we reserve the right to enroll another child in your child’s place. We do not want to take these measures and we do understand that there can be temporary, extenuating circumstances that may occur during the year. If you need to make other payment arrangements, please notify us and we will meet with you to set up alternate payment options. As we start our year together, remember… Coming together is a beginning, Keeping together is progress, Working together is success!
