All tuition and Kid’s Club fees should be paid by automatic EFT payments processed by your financial institution checking or savings account through our EZ-EFT program. The EZ-EFT program allows you to pre-authorize your payments to be made automatically and electronically by your financial institution on the 5th of each month. There is no charge to you for enrolling in this service.
Automatic EFT payment from your Visa or MasterCard is available. If you elect this option, there is a 3% convenience fee that applies to each transaction. This option also allows for monthly payments on the 5th of each month.
Payments not received by their due date will be subject to a late fee of $10 plus $1 per day until paid. If payment is over two weeks late without explanation the child will be unable to return to school until paid.
There is a $25.00 service charge for any returned check or attempted EFT. If the check is returned twice the child will be unable to return to school until a money order or cashier’s check is brought in to the office.
Payment for miscellaneous fees (field trips. pictures, pizza, etc) should be paid by check with proper notation in the memo area.
For Half Day Preschool, Half Day Kindergarten, Primary, and Elementary students, a late fee is charged beginning after the scheduled pick-up time. (See Hours, above.) The fee is $10.00 for the 1st five minutes and $1.00 per minute thereafter. Children picked up late from Kid’s Club and Full Day Preschool are charged $10.00 for the 1st five minutes and $1.00/minute thereafter. These fees also apply to children brought to school early. Please make every effort to be prompt in order to avoid causing your child any unnecessary anxiety.
We offer tuition discounts to families with more than one child attending The Country Day School. Discounts are as follows:
2nd child 10%
3rd child 15%
4th child 20%
The discount applies to half-day preschool, kindergarten, and elementary tuitions. It does not apply to registration fees, Full Day Preschool, Kids’ Club, field trips, or other miscellaneous charges.
There is no reduction in fees if the child is absent or if school must be closed due to severe weather conditions or illness which cause the school to be closed.
Termination of Services:
A one month written notice is required in case of withdrawal of a child from school. A written notice will be given to parents if it becomes necessary for The Country Day School to terminate a child from our program. In the event that our program does not meet the needs of the child (as determined by the Director and Staff), The Country Day School reserves the right to drop any child from our enrollment. This right will also be exercised if the child’s presence poses a threat to the welfare of others.
In the event of termination for any reason, registration fees are not refundable. Tuition refund insurance forms must be filled out and signed by the parent; insurance will be filed by the office. After an insurance payment is received, a statement will be sent to the parent and final payment is due within 30 days. Tuition refund insurance does not apply to Full Day Preschool or Kids’ Club.
