Your childcare tuition will remain the same through your child’s first day of enrollment to their last with the following exceptions.
(1) When moving from Young Toddler class (12 to 24 months old) or to Older Toddler class (2 -3 years old).
(2) Stopping and then restarting paid attendance in SING Childcare.
In the above scenarios your new payment will default to the current price of the new schedule
Payment is due prior to the start of each week. If payment is received after Monday at 4:30 p.m. of each week, a $25 late fee will be charged for each day you are late.
Fees are payable in advance, no exceptions are made for absences due to illness, vacation, or other reason for missed attendance. There are no refunds for early pick up or late arrival. Payment is a flat contracted fee. Payment must be received on the day it is due (or prior to), even if your child is not in attendance. If payment is not received by the end of the week the contract may terminate, which will result in forfeiture of any deposit and care will no longer be provided. You will be responsible for all unpaid fees and costs related to collection of unpaid fees. Repeated non-payment of fees may result in immediate termination of care.
Child's Absences and/or Vacations
If your child will not be attending childcare due to illness or other, please let us know as soon as possible so the day's activities won't be held up waiting for your child to arrive.
Payment will not be waived or prorated for absence of any kind. Payment is based on contract, not attendance and must be paid whether your child attends or not (even if your child misses several days; tuition remains the same). If your child will not be attending daycare for any reason (illness, vacation, etc.) you are still required to pay.
Non Sufficient Funds (NSF)
Due to the inconvenience of NSF and fees charged to SING Childcare, a $50 fee will be charged for any NSF regardless of method of payment.
Late Pickup Policy
If your child is picked up after 5:30pm there will be a late charge assessed of $1.00 for every additional minute past 5:30pm (unless prior arrangements have been made). After hours is personal and family time.
It is crucial that your child be picked up during opening hours. If you are not able to pick up your child by the contracted time, please have someone else available to pick up your child for you. If you are running late or stuck in traffic please call/text me in advance, so that we are aware of the situation.
SICK/PERSONAL DAYS/VACATION (PTO)
As much as we would like to be 100% healthy every day of the year, upon occasion we may become ill. We also need days off to refresh and take care of personal/childcare related business (CPR, first aid, illness, vacation, etc.). With this in kind we allow ourselves 10 days PTO per year. We will provide as much advance notice as possible. For regular training as and vacations we will provide at least three to four weeks notice. In the event the PTO day is an emergency due to unforeseen illness we do our best to provide as much notice as possible.
Regular payment rates apply to our vacations, your vacations, weeks with holidays, and provider's sick/personal days. Parents are responsible for finding back-up care for children during provider vacations, holidays, and sick/personal days when SING childcare is closed.
A nonrefundable deposit of two weeks' childcare costs is due at the time of enrollment. Please give us the deposit once you have signed the enrollment forms and contract. Your child's spot is not secured until we have received both the deposit and the signed enrollment forms and contract. The deposit will be credited towards the last two weeks of your child's enrollment. Please make your payment payable to SING Childcare.
THE TERMINATION POLICY
The first two weeks will be regarded as a trial period, in which case either party may terminate the contract without notice. Your deposit can/will be used for payment. After the first two weeks of enrollment, a two week written notice from parent or SING Childcare is required to terminate the contract, with the exception of gross misconduct on part of the provider, parent, or child. This is grounds for immediate discontinuation of service. In cases of non-payment, legal action may be taken, and the parents will pay all legal fees incurred.
If you will no longer be needing SING Childcare services, two weeks advance notice needs to be given. Thirty to sixty days is preferred if possible.
