Changes in schedule: 

  • Adding days outside of a typical weekly schedule: If families would like to add a day that they are not typically enrolled, but not change their child’s usual weekly schedule they must confirm with their Program Director that there is room for this added day. When this change has been confirmed, the Program will bill for a rate of $20/day (after school) OR $55/day (preschool) OR $65/day (infant/toddler) for any added days that will be reflected in the next month’s invoice. 

  • Adding days to a typical weekly schedule: If families would like to add a day to their child’s weekly schedule consistently they must confirm with their Program Director that this schedule change can occur. When this change has been confirmed, the Program will bill for a rate of $20/day (after school) OR $55/day (preschool) OR $65/day (infant/toddler) for any per diem add-on days in the current month. The new billing cycle will reflect the change in schedule in their invoice with a new monthly flat rate for infant, toddler and preschool programs reflecting all additional days. 

  • Subtracting days: If families would like to change their schedule to subtract days from a typical weekly schedule they must give a two week paid notice with their Program Director before those changes can occur.

  • If a child is absent from the program (illness, vacation, etc.) payment will still be required.

  • If NOW is required to close due to inclement weather, or other emergency closings, payment will still be required.

 

 

Invoices will be sent by the 20th of each month, reflecting a bill for the following month. Full payment for the following month will be due by or before the 1st of that month. If payment is not received by the 1st of each month a late payment fee of $20 will be added to the bill. If payment is not made, including the $20 late payment fee, by the 20th of the month the family will be sent a notice that their childcare slot will no longer be available by the end of the month if payment is not made. 

 

Example:

October Bill:

Invoice Emailed on Sept. 20th

Payment Due by or before Oct. 1st

No payment made on Oct. 1st

$20 late payment fee applied on Oct. 2nd

No payment made by Oct. 20th

All families are required to pay an annual $25 supply fee that will be reflected in the first invoice sent to families upon enrolling.
