Fall Programs Tuition Schedule Tuition Rates Effective June 25, 2012
When enrolling your child at Sandwich Children’s Center, you will enroll him or her in a program for the year. He or she will stay in that program all year unless staff, administration and parents agree that move-up is appropriate. Generally, move-up will take place in September to coincide with the public school year.
Payment Due in Advance: Families will receive a tuition statement on or about the first of the month. Payment is due in advance and is required weekly on the first day that your child attends each week. SCC reserves the right to refuse care until any account due over 30 days is paid in full. Any account due over 30 days may be billed a late fee of 1.5% monthly. Payment is due on or before the first day of the week a child attends and for days the Center is open. Tuition is expected for scheduled time even if a child is absent. Scholarships may be available; see bottom of page.
Family Discounts: A discount is offered to families paying the full tuition rate when enrolling two or more children, four full days per week (A full day is 7 hours). The full rate will be charged for the youngest child and a 15% discount will be applied on the tuition of the older child.
Non-Contractual Rate:Families requesting short-term care for children who are not enrolled/contracted at SCC (i.e. school vacation weeks) will be accepted on the basis of classroom availability and will be charged non-contractual rates $5.00 above the standard enrollment fees per full day and/or $3.00 above the standard enrollment fees per half day. Full payment is due on the first day the child attends SCC.
Permanent Schedule Changes and Terminations: A two-week written notice is required to withdraw from any program or to permanently change your child’s schedule. Schedule changes must be made in writing and approved through the office. Schedule changes will depend on classroom availability. A new contract will need to be filled out and signed.
