WEEKLY TUITION INFORMATION
Weekly tuition payments are due on Monday morning upon the student’s arrival to school. Tuition will not be refunded for the dates your student is absent from VCP&A, this includes holidays and inclement weather. VCP&A accepts debit/credit cards, checks, money orders, and cashier’s check. If your student is not in attendance during Spring break and Christmas break full tuition is still required.
* Registration Fees are non-refundable.
** Registration Fees are paid annually for students with continued care.
Re-enrolling a student may require you to pay a new Registration Fee.
PAYMENT ARRANGEMENTS OR EXTENSIONS
It is VCP&A policy that payment arrangements or extensions only be allowed for families that have been enrolled for over a year. This allows the family to create a payment history, from which the arrangement/ extension can be assessed.
Tuition is due on Monday of every week. Tuition is considered late by Tuesday morning and will be assessed at a $20.00 late fee per student. If payment is not made by the close of business on Tuesday, your student will not be allowed admittance on Wednesday morning or receive services from VCP&A until the outstanding balance is paid in full. Please note that all school records are held on past due accounts and tuition statements for tax purposes are withheld until accounts are current.
RETURNED CHECK FEES
When checks are returned for insufficient funds, the account will be charged a returned check fee of $35.00 and a $20.00 late fee. After the first returned check, all payments for an entire year will have to be paid by money order, debit/credit card, or cashier’s check. Parents are responsible for all costs related to the collection of child care fees.
A ten percent (10%) discount on the weekly tuition of the lowest tuition will be given for each additional child in your immediate family who is enrolled in any of our programs full time. In addition, the discount only applies to siblings or children that are in the custody of the same court appointed guardian. Please contact the school for additional discounts and/or scholarship opportunities.
LATE PICK-UP FEE
VCP&A closes at 6:30pm (at 12:30pm for part-time students); we allow a 5 minute grace period, after which time you are considered late. Consequently, you will be assessed a late charge of $1.00 per minute for one (1) child, $1.25 per minute for two (2) children, $1.50 per minute for three (3) children, $1.75 per minute for four (4) children, $2.00 per minute for five (5) children. Late pick-up fee payments must be paid the following day. In the event of an emergency, please call the back-up person you have listed on your registration card for emergency pick-up. It is the parent’s responsibility to plan accordingly and to make arrangement for pick-up due to inclement weather and traffic delays.
If you want to reserve space for the upcoming school year and your student will not be attending VCP&A during the summer, you may pay the non-refundable registration fee to reserve a space for your student prior to your student’s last day. This fee will guarantee a space for the first 2-weeks of the fall (beginning the first week in September). If you have not enrolled your student by the end of the 2nd week you will forfeit your deposit as well as their space.
