Registration, fees, and other payment policies

  • A registration fee of $100.00 will cover the cost of enrolling your child. Once this fee is paid, it is non-refundable should you decide not to enroll your child.
  • TUITION IS DUE THE FIRST DAY OF EACH WEEK YOUR CHILD IS IN ATTENDANCE.
  • There is a $4.25/day charge for any child needing transportation from school in the Ridge Pointe van.
  • We will charge an additional $12.24/day when School-age children need to be in attendance due to a snow day or scheduled school closings. When closings result in a full week’s attendance full-time tuition will be charged.
  • We will charge $5.00 for every 5 minutes after 6:00pm that your child remains at the Center
  • A 10% discount is offered to families with 2 or more children enrolled on a FULL-TIME basis. The discount will be calculated from the oldest child’s tuition and subtracted from your total weekly rate. Tuition is NOT discounted when children are enrolled PART-TIME.
  • Payment by check is most appropriate, however cash may be used. Please obtain a receipt when paying with cash.
  • TUITION IS DUE FOR SICK DAYS. Individual weekly tuition is reduced to half price ONLY when your child is absent due to illness for 5 or more consecutive days. THIS 1⁄2 PRICE REDUCTION APPLIES TO FAMILIES ENROLLED ON A FULL-TIME BASIS ONLY
  • Because tuition rates are determined by averaging, A FULL WEEKS TUITION WILL BE CHARGED WHEN CERTAIN HOLIDAYS ARE OBSERVED AND THE CENTER IS CLOSED.
  • On a day prior to or following a Holiday, we reserve the right to close the Center when less than 10 children are scheduled to be in attendance. Notice of closure will be posted in advance.
  • Ridge Pointe is open, with the exception of a few holidays, 365 days a year. We have found that some things are out of our control. In the event of an emergency, for example, a natural disaster, full tuition will be charged for the days the center has to close. We will do everything possible to open the center as soon as possible.
  • Families enrolled on a FULL-TIME basis are allowed 10 DAYS per calendar year to use as vacation time. During these weeks, no tuition will be charged PROVIDED WRITTEN NOTICE IS GIVEN AT LEAST ONE WEEK IN ADVANCE. Any additional time out of the Center will be billed at your regular weekly rate.
  • FULL-TIME families who choose to pull their child(ren) out for the summer will forfeit their vacation days.
  • Families enrolled on a PART-TIME basis are allowed vacation equivalent to one week of their regularly scheduled days per calendar year.
  • New families enrolled after June 1 will only receive one-half the vacation days allowed during their first year.
  • AT NO TIME CAN A FAMILY CHANGE THEIR ENROLLMENT STATUS WITHOUT APPROVAL FROM THE ADMINISTRATOR.
  • Families enrolled on a part-time basis are asked to consistently bring their child only on the days they are scheduled for. Should you need to add a day, there will be an additional charge.
  • If it becomes necessary to withdraw your child from the Center, written notice must be given to the Administrator at least one week in advance.
  • In the event it becomes necessary to proceed with the collection of any unpaid balances, that family will be responsible for all additional administrative expenses, including court costs and Attorney’s fees.
  • THIS UPDATED TUITION AND PAYMENT SCHEDULE SUPERCEDES THE ONE LISTED IN THE PARENT HANDBOOK.
