Prompt payment of tuition is essential to the proper functioning of our school. By signing this contract, you are agreeing to pay the tuition for the entire academic school year. No portion of the tuition will be forgiven or refunded on account of absences or school closures.
We do not offer discounts or refunds if your child is absent. If your child is picked up after 5:30 pm, you will be charged $1.00 for every minute you are late.
Tuition is due on Monday of each week unless a different arrangement has been made with the business manager. Any late payments will be subject to a $10.00 late fee or a child being dismissed from the afterschool program.
Payments may be made by cash or personal check. A $20.00 fee will be assessed for any returned checks. Checks should be made payable to the ECA Afterschool Program.
All new applicants must pay a one-time $25 registration fee. This fee will not have to be paid again unless a child is withdrawn from the program and then returns.
