Stepping Stones Financial Policies
All forms in our enrollment packet must be filled out completely before your child will be admitted to the school. We require the following forms to be completed:
*Immunization Requirements- immunization information will be verified prior to enrollment acceptance.
Every family will be given a monthly rate agreement. Your tuition is due on the first of the month for that month. Please be aware that you are reserving a space in our program and that payment is required regardless of attendance. Any account not current by the 15th of the month will be assessed a $50 late fee. If late accounts continue into the next month, a loss of space will result on the first of themonth following non payment. If you need to make alternate payment dates, please contact the director. Rates are subject to change with a 30-day written notice. Stepping Stones accepts check, cash, and credit card. A 3% fee will be applied on all credit card and debit card transactions.
Add ons will be charged at the drop-in rate.
With prior written notice, each family will be allowed one vacation week per year at no charge.
We require a registration fee of $35.00 to enroll your child. This is a one time fee that ensures your child’s space in our program. If you choose to remove your child from that program for a space of time and then re-enroll, i.e. for summer, a fee of $35.00 will be required to hold your space.
Children must be picked up by their designated time. A grace period of 5 minutes will be given. After 5 minutes, a late charge of $1 per minute will be assessed, beginning at the specified pick up time.
If a refund is needed, we will prorate the monthly amount.
There will be a $25 charge for all returned checks.
Twice a year we allow for schedule changes. These times occur at the beginning of the Summer and Fall sessions. If you need to make a change other than these times, you may do so if there is an opening. A $25.00 fee is required to make a schedule change other than summer and fall changes.
Families with more than one child enrolled at the same time will receive a 10% discount on the lesser tuition.
We require a written notice of two weeks if a student will be dropping from our enrollment. As stated before, any refund that is needed will be prorated.
