Financial Aid Payment Policy’s
These policy’s are applicable to all of our programs unless otherwise noted.
Afterschool: Once your monthly payment has been determined you must pay one months fee as a deposit. If registering in September, your deposit will be due in August and will be put towards your September payment. Deposits are non-refunable. You will continue to make monthly payments.
Summer and Vacation Weeks: A deposit of 15% for the total tuition or $20 (whichever is greater) is due upon registration. Weekly balances must be paid one week prior to the week you are attending. Deposits are non-refundable.
For example if you have registered for Weeks 2, 3 and 4 of the summer program you will pay 15% of the total registration. One week before week 2 begins you are responsible for paying for the balance of Week 2. On the Monday of Week 2 you are responsible for paying for the balance of Week 3.
Fees that are received after the deadline will be assessed a $25 late fee. If the balance is not received by the Wednesday before you are attending KidsArts reserves the right to cancel your registration with no refunds. If you are experiencing financial hardship and cannot make your payment please contact the Operations Manager immediately.
Electronic Check from your bank account is our preferred method of payment. Using an electronic check saves us costs that we can put back into our program.
Withdraw from Program: Four Weeks (4) written notice is required for the afterschool program. Two (2) weeks written or emailed notice is required for the Summer and Vacation Programs. No account adjustments will be made without notice.
Prorated Weeks: In general, students must participate in the full program. For some weeks, if there is space, reduced attendance may be available at a prorated fee equal to 25% above the daily fee at the discretion of the Program Manager and Director.
Transfer Fee: Transfers into a different week are charged $10 per family and per transfer request.
Late Pick Up & Fees: Children must be picked up by the end of the program time – Afterschool: 6:00pm or Summer/Vacation Program 5:00pm for regular day and 6:00pm for extended day. Late fees will be assessed after 6:05pm and 5:05pm respectively. Any child picked up after 6:05 or 5:05 will be charged $1.00 per minute. Failure to pay these late fees may result in dismissal from the program. During the summer late fee balances must be paid by the end of each week in order to continue to the following week. During afterschool we will add them to your monthly bill.
Cancelled Program: KidsArts reserves the right to cancel a program based on enrollment or other circumstances. Should KidsArts cancel a program we will issue a full refund or credit to your account.
Non-sufficient funds (NSF): NSF fees for check payments that are returned for lack of funds will be charged $35 per check.
