  1.  Tuition payments and copays are due on the Monday following care.  You may pay every two weeks, with permission from the Administrator. 
  1. Before a child is officially enrolled, the application fee must be paid at the time of registration. 
  1. SHORT WEEKS:  Full tuition is due for the weeks in which FPCELC is closed for the holidays and teacher workdays.  A complete list of days that FPCELC is closed will be issued in August.  Full tuition is also due for the weeks when early closings occur.  Regular tuition is also required if and when FPCELC must close early or for an entire day, due to inclement weather conditions. 
  1. The full week’s tuition is due whether your child is here all five days or not, unless you have a regular part-time schedule and/or make arrangements with the administrator. 
  1. If a child is absent from FPCELC for a complete, full calendar week, you may pay a reduced rate of 50% of your regular childcare rate.  This option may be used up to two times each school year.  The school year begins the fourth Tuesday of August.  Full tuition is due for all weeks in excess of the two reduced rate weeks mentioned above.  
  1. Full tuition will be due for up to two calamity days per year.  Calamity days include, but are not limited to, utility outages, staff illness, etc.  Weather related closures are NOT considered calamity days and are addressed above in section three.  Tuition will be adjusted for any calamity days after the first two. 
  1. Parents can pay tuition over the phone or at the school office using a debit or credit card.  The School accepts Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover.   
  1. All payments must be paid to and recorded by the administrator.  Payments made by check or money order may be left in the tuition payment box in the school office.  Parents will get a receipt for all cash payments.  Cash payments may be placed in a completed payment envelope and left in the lock box. 
  1. A $25.00 fee will be charged for all returned checks, and we reserve the right to require that you pay all further tuition with cash, cashier’s check, or money order. 
  1. Parents who participate in Title XX will be responsible to pay the difference between the Part Time rate FPCELC is paid (if you’re only approved for Part Time through Title XX), and the normal Full Time Title XX rate, if your child attends 4 or 5 days during that calendar week. 
  1. A late fee will be charged for any tuition/copay that is not paid by Friday of the following week of service.  The late fee is $15.  The late fee for Title XX participants is 10% of weekly copay or $3, whichever is greater.

I agree to support and abide by the Forest Park Christian Early Learning Center tuition, late payment, and late pickup policies. I agree to make payment for my child’s care a priority in my family budget and will strive to pay on time. I understand that failure to pay tuition / copays in accordance with school policies will result in late fees and/or withdrawal.
