Tuition is paid online through our parent portal at Kindercare.com and can be automatically deducted from your checking account or credit card. Checks and Money Orders are accepted at the center but no cash payments will be accepted at the center.  A late payment fee of $25.00 will be charged to all unpaid accounts if tuition is not paid by the 3rd of the current month.  Non-payment of fees may result in mandatory withdrawal of your child(ren) from the center. 

    There will be no refunds or credits given for absence, illness or vacation, regardless of the duration.

  • Late Fees

    There is a late fee of $2 per child per 1 minute for children picked up after center closing time.
  • Returned Checks

    There is a fee of $25.00 for each returned check.  If more than two checks are returned, money orders or credit cards will be required.
