Billing Policy & Late Fee
Each Monday our computer will bill your account for your child’s scheduled days. If payment is not received by closing on Monday, the computer will add a late fee of $25.00 per child. No exceptions for vacations, illness, or part-time scheduled students--the Monday deadline will still apply.
After 5:45 p.m.
We close at 5:45. If your child should stay later than 5:45, a late fee of $5.00 per minute per child will be charged to your account.
Absences & Days Closed
The full tuition, either weekly or monthly, is due and payable regardless of absences, days Children's Classic is closed, number of weeks in the month, emergency closures or illness.
Your child must arrive at school no later than 10:00 a.m. If your child comes after 10:00, care will be denied unless arrangements are made the day prior. The only exception is if your child is scheduled after 10:00 a.m.
Scheduled to arrive each day after 10:00 a.m.
If your child does not show up for the day without a phone call prior to 10:00 a.m., a $10.00 fee will be charged.
After 9 ½ Hours of Care
If your child needs to stay longer than 9 ½ hours a day, then a flat hour rate of $5.00 for each additional hour will be charged to your account in addition to the daily charge after the 9 ½ hour mark.
Credit Card Processing Fee
A 2% processing fee will be charged for using credit/debit cards to pay tuition. This fee is subject to change. (ACH debits are free)
Non-sufficient Funds for ACH Payments or Denied Credit Card Payments
If your ACH payment is returned due to non-sufficient funds you will be charged a $25.00 Fee. This return of funds means that your child’s tuition was not paid on the Monday deadline and therefore, the late fee of $25.00 will be added. After 2 non-sufficient funds, ACH payments will not be accepted, and a credit card or cash will be required to pay tuition.
It is required by the State of Utah, Child Nutrition Program, that all children are clocked in and out by their Parent/Legal Guardian, or person designated by the Parent /Legal Guardian. PLEASE-clock your child in the computer every day! A $5.00 fee will be added to your account if your child is not clocked in or out of the computer.
Care for Days Not Scheduled
If your child needs care on days other than your scheduled days, you must call first. Depending on the teacher-child ratio we may not be able to let your child come for that day. All extra days will be billed at the less than 5 days a week rate.
Child Care Assistance Co-Pay Policy
The COVID relief money will be ending, and co-pays will be reinstated beginning in January 2023. Parents are responsible for co-pays and any additional fees that may occur. Any co-pays or other expenses up to $150.00 that are not covered by government assistance are due by the 1st Monday of the month. If your co-pay is more than $150.00, see the director to work out payment arrangements. Late fees will apply if co-pays are not paid on time. (Child Care Assistance Co-pays are paid first, and any balance or credits are between Children's Classic and Workforce Services.)
We require a 14-day written notice if your child should terminate from our school. If a 14-day written notice is not given, two full weeks of tuition will be charged. You may re-enroll your child after he/she has been out of our center for 4 or more weeks. If your child re-enrolls before 4 weeks, he/she will not be considered terminated and additional charges for days absent will still apply. A 30- day notice is required for the month May and August. If a 30-day notice is not given in those two months, then tuition will be charged to your account. Parents who receive childcare assistance are also required to give a 14 days written notice. If this notice is not given, you will be required to pay for the 2 weeks privately. DWS requires Children's Classic to pay back these 2 weeks.
Past Due & Delinquent Accounts
All tuition should be paid in advance or on Monday of the current week. If your account is not paid in full by Friday, Children’s Classic has the right to refuse services until account balance becomes current. When your account is more than 14 days past due, a $50.00 fee will be charged.
If your account goes to COLLECTION, then a collection fee - 33% of the balance due will be added to your account. I agree to pay all attorney fees, court costs, filing fees, including charges or processing fees that may be assessed to me by any collection agency retained to pursue this matter.
