The total registration fee is payable in 10 equal installments. Please note that this is not a monthly fee but rather a “budget plan”. We accept post dated checks, Debit, Visa, Mastercard and E-transfers. For purchasing and preparation reasons, we require one month’s notice if you plan to withdraw from the program.

In lieu of a months notice of withdrawal a full budget payment is required.

While we would like to be flexible about payments, please bear in mind that we are on a very tight budget. Rent, snacks, supplies, phone, insurance, and salaries must be covered directly by preschool fees. Although we feel that children benefit from the preschool experience and would not like to see a child denied due to any financial difficulty, we shall be obliged to discontinue membership if payments are not met in a timely manner. We charge $10.00 for any NSF checks.
