TUITION POLICIES

Tuition and fundraising are the sole source of revenue in our school. We have set the following policies to ensure that Bright Ideas remains a financially stable school, which can provide high quality care and schooling to children. A stable and adequate salary is necessary to attract well-educated and well-trained professionals to provide those services. In order to meet our financial obligations, we expect families to comply with the following policies.

Application: To secure a space for your child, we will need a nonrefundable registration fee of $100.00, plus the equivalent of one week’s tuition, as a deposit. With two weeks written notice, this deposit will be credited as payment toward the last week of tuition only. If there is no space in the preferred classroom, a $100.00 nonrefundable registration fee will ensure a position on the waiting list. This is not a guarantee of placement. Families with a sibling currently enrolled at Bright Ideas will be prioritized. Families currently enrolled at Bright Ideas that wish to add or change days will be prioritized. Date of registration will be the final consideration.

Tuition Payment: Tuition is budgeted and planned for on a yearly basis; however, it is billed weekly. Parents may elect to pay the full tuition in one payment, two payments or a weekly payment. Payment is to be paid by Friday of the preceding week. Other payment schedules will be accepted at the discretion of the director only. Such requests are to be made in writing.

Late Fees: There will be a charge of $10.00 for late tuition payments. An additional late fee of $10.00 per day for any tuition payment more than two weeks in arrears will be applied. Tuition is due in advance of the week in attendance. There will be a $25.00 fee for any check that is returned for insufficient funds.

Tax Information: For your tax statement, our federal ID number is 05-046-1266. We will provide all families with an accounting statement for payments made during the calendar year.
