​​​​​TUITION
A registration fee of $55.00 per family is due at enrollment. Annual registration fees are charged in September at the beginning of each new school year. Registration fees for the families that have already paid fees in that same calendar year will be waived. When more than one child from the same family is enrolled, a reduction of 10% will be allowed for each additional child’s tuition. The discount will be deducted from the lower tuition rate. Rate increases are annual.

HOURS
Teaching Tree is open from 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. If you pick your child up after 6:00 p.m., a late fee of $1.00 per minute per child will be charged to your account and payment will be due the following morning. Your child may be dis-enrolled for excessive late pick-ups.

SICK/VACATION DAYS
Vacation/sick days are allowed each calendar year according to your contract. You are allowed one day a year per number of days each week that your child attends. For example, if your child attends Teaching Tree Early Childhood Learning Center three full days a week than you are allowed three full days of vacation/sick credit per year. If your child attends two half days a week than you are allowed two half days each year for vacation credit. Any absences beyond the allotted will be charged at the child’s tuition rate. (see your financial contract.) If you are uncertain about vacation/sick credit days please check in the office. YOU MUST NOTIFY THE OFFICE IN WRITING IF YOU PLAN TO USE A VACATION/SICK DAY, OTHERWISE NO CREDIT ON YOUR TUITION WILL BE GIVEN.
You must give the center one week written notice if your child will be leaving Teaching Tree. If proper notice is not given you will be charged one full week's tuition beyond your child's last day of attendance.

HOLIDAYS
The center will close early, at 4:00 p.m., on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. The center is closed on New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. If a holiday falls on a Saturday it will be observed on Friday. If it falls on a Sunday it will be observed on the following Monday.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

Financial assistance is available on a sliding fee basis. Parent fees are based on family size, gross income and available funds. Parent fees are applied to the child's tuition first and sliding fee money pays the balance. To apply for financial assistance a sliding fee application must be filled out. Sliding fee information will be updated every 90 days and/or the beginning of each school semester. (fall, spring, summer)
