FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE BILLING PROCESS
Do I pay an Application Fee?
There is a one-time application fee of $25. Your child’s name is placed on the wait list when we receive this fee. This fee does not guarantee your child will be enrolled in CCP.
When do I pay the Annual Enrollment Fee?
Each year there is a non-refundable $350 enrollment fee. This is due upon notification that a space has been reserved for your child.
What is the schedule for payment of Annual Tuition and Summer Tuition?
Our regular school year runs from mid August until the beginning of June. The annual tuition pays for your child’s attendance during this time. The Summer Program is contracted and billed separately.
The annual tuition for your child will be divided into 10 equal payments. These payments are due on the first of each month starting August 1 and continuing through May 1. There is no regular annual tuition payment due in June. However, if your child is enrolled in the Summer Program there will be a Summer tuition payment due in June. The Summer Program is contracted separately and billed separately from the regular program. The monthly regular tuition installment amount is the same each month, no matter what the number of school days in that month. No credit shall be given for days the school is officially closed. No credit shall be given for student absences.
Will I be charged a Late Fee?
Tuition payments are due on the 1st of the month and subject to a $25 late fee if not received by CCP by the 15th of the month.
Is there an option for Extended Care?
If you wish to have your child remain at school past the time for which you are enrolled, you can use our Extended Care Program. You will be billed at the rate of $10.00 per hour. Please let us know ahead of time that you plan to have your child be at school outside of their regular schedule. You will then make a note in the “notes column” on the sign in sheet in the classroom. The hours used will be totaled at the end of each month and will be billed on your monthly billing statements.
What is the Late Pick-up Fee?
A fee of $20.00 for every five minutes will be charged if your child is left in the preschool’s care after 6:00 P.M.
Is it possible to change to a new schedule mid-year.
It is sometimes possible to change schedules if the space you want is available. We would then change your contract to reflect the new schedule. There would be an adjustment to the pre-paid last month tuition installment also. The new last month charge would be more if your new schedule has a higher rate and less if your new schedule has a lower rate.
