Childcare will be provided from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.  At 6:31 p.m., your child(ren) is  in after hour care and the following overtime rates will apply.

6:31 p.m. - 6:45 p.m.  $15.00 per child
After 6:45 p.m. there will be an additional charge of $1.00 per minute, per child. 

Overtime fees are to be paid no later than the following day of care.
I have a "No Pay, No Play" policy.  Payments will be made in advance for childcare and are due prior to leaving your child for care..  If child is in care earlier than normal contracted time, payment is due at actual drop off time.  If you do not have your payment in hand at drop off do not bring your child to me for care.  I will kindly ask you to return with payment.  There will be a $15.00 per day late fee for payment not received as described above.  Please do not put me in the position of having to tell your child he/she can not come inside and play.

Payment is preferred in cash, however, money orders and personal checks will be accepted when drawn on a local bank.  In the unlikely event of a returned check, I will require a
$25.00 service charge in addition to the repayment of any extra bank charges I may incur as a result of the  inconvenience.  Subsequent payments will need to be made in cash or money order.NO EXCEPTIONS!

If you prefer, you may pay once per month, at the beginning of the current month.  The monthly payment would be at the same weekly tuition rate, multiplied by 52 weeks per year and divided by 12 months.

All parents that have a third party payment arrangement (such as county or state assistance or employer vouchers) are responsible for payment of the difference of what the third party pays and the actual fees.

In addition, you are responsible for payment of all days that I have listed in my
Holidays, Vacation and Personal Days sections that are not paid by the third party.  All parents using a third party payment arrangements are also responsible for a deposit of the final 2 weeks fees. This may be paid in 8 equal payments over the first 8 weeks of care.  If required two weeks written notice is given for termination of care, the deposit will be refunded after final third party payment has been received.  If you fail to give two weeks written notice, the deposit is forfeited and will not be refunded.

In order to provide for my own family with a stable financial situation, I cannot offer any discounts for days your child is not in my care, such as when you are on vacation, days when your child is ill, or other days when you choose not to bring your child.

Although I realize daycare is a major expense for most working parents, I also rely on this business to help support my own  family.  Since I will be holding your child's space for you to use at will, I need to charge for full time care whether you use it or not.

Payment obligation is based on the hours you agree to use childcare, not on actual hours of attendance.  Both full-time and part-time fees will be charged based on contracted hours, including missed days due to illness, holidays, vacations, or inclement weather.  This also applies to early and late drop offs.  Late drop off does not constitue late pick up.  In a sense you are paying me for your child's "slot" as well as for my services.
