Tuition Payments

  • Contracted Scheduled Days of Attendance

    The parent/guardian must indicate on the Day Care Service Agreement Form the scheduled days and times that Day Care services will be needed for the child.  After this form has been completed, signed by the parent/guardian and submitted to the Early Childhood Coordinator, this becomes the "contracted scheduled days of attendance."

     

    The "contracted scheduled days of attendance" CANNOT BE SWITCHED ON A TEMPORARY BASIS.  We are not a drop-in Center.  If these contracted scheduled days of attendance need to be permanently changed, or parent/guardian has a work schedule conflict, a conference with the Early Childhood Coordinator is required and a new Day Care Service Agreement Form must be completed.  If roster numbers permit, days may be added on occasion at the regular daily rate after conferring with the Early Childhood Coordinator.

     

    Fees will be charged for each day that a child is scheduled to attend the center through and including the last day of service.  We request that parents call the center if their child will be absent.

    Tuition payments, payable in advance of services, are due on Mondays weekly or bi-weekly.  ONLY checks or money orders are acceptable and should be made payable to Parma City Schools Day Care.  Children returning to the Center at the start of a new school year will be charged for all "contracted scheduled days of attendance," starting the first day the Center opens to the last day the Center closes at the end of the school year.  New children will be charged from the first scheduled attendance day of enrollment to the last day the Center closes.

     

    All payment records are handled at the Children’s Services Office at Parma Schools Administration Office.  Please call 440-885-2484 if you have any questions regarding your tuition account.  Checks can be left at the Center or mailed directly to:

     

    Children’s Services

    TUITION IS TO BE PAID IN ADVANCE OF SERVICES.

    TUITION IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE.

     

    Late Tuition Payments

    Payment is due in advance of services. If tuition fees are not paid in a timely fashion, an invoice will be submitted to the Supervisor of Children’s Services, and suspension or withdrawal from the Program will be considered until all payments are up to date. If a child is suspended from the Program due to an outstanding balance owed, the program will hold the slot for only two weeks. Overdue accounts will be turned over for collection to the Parma Schools Chief Financial Officer.

     

    Late Pick-Up Charge Begins at 6:01 p.m.

    The Center closes at 6 p.m. Children and parents/guardians must be EXITING the Center by 6 p.m. In the event a child is not picked-up by 6 p.m., there will be a late charge of $15 per family per each 15 minutes, or any portion of a 15 minute time period, imposed after 6 p.m.. (THE DAY CARE CLOCK ABOVE THE SIGN-IN/SIGN-OUT SHEETS IS USED FOR RECORDING THE TIME.) At 6 p.m., the Day Care staff will begin calling people on the parent’s Pick-Up Authorization Form.

     

    Non-Sufficient Fund Charge

    A $18 non-sufficient fund charge will be added to weekly tuition if the tuition check is returned to us due to non-sufficient funds. If two checks are returned for NSF, money orders will be required in order for your child to remain in the Program.

    Extended Absences

    Fees will be charged for each day that the child is scheduled to attend whether or not the child is at the Center.  When a child is absent from the Center for six or more days due to illness, vacations, maternity leave, professional leave, etc., the following amounts will be charged if the Center is notified in advance:

     

    DAYS 1 THROUGH 5 PAY USUAL WEEKLY FEE

    DAYS 6 AND BEYOND PAY 50% OF DAILY RATE

     

    Family Discount Plan

    Discounts apply only to children that attend the Day Care Center on a full-time basis (full day/full week).  This will represent a 10% savings for the second and third child enrolled in the Day Care program.  The parent/guardian will pay the full price for the youngest child enrolled and a 10% tuition discount will be given to all other children enrolled at the Center.

     

    Scheduled School Recesses and Holidays

    During a week when less than five days of school are scheduled, a daily rate times the actual number of days that the Center is open will be used to determine tuition.  A calendar with the days that the Center provides care will be provided to parents/guardians.
