We love Venmo (a secure mobile app), checks, and cash for payment methods! We have done PayPal in the past and find that now they charge us a lot of fees. We prefer that neither you nor we have to pay extra to get money back and forth. If you choose to pay in cash, please put it in an envelope clearly labeled with student's name, month being paid for, and how much is enclosed. This will ensure proper recording of your payment.
Tuition is due on or before the 8th of each month. After that, I will add a late fee of $10 to the next month’s tuition (unless prior arrangements have been made with me). If your account becomes one month behind, your child will not be allowed to come to class until tuition is caught up to the current month.
You may pay electronically (Venmo, by cash, or by check. Please make checks payable to Stepping Stones Preschool or Angelene Larsen. You may pay the entire year in the first month of the school year to receive a 5% discount.
Tuition is the same each month, even when there are varying number of classes from month to month. The days in class average out over the year and my lessons are planned for the entire year to meet our goals and finish our curriculum accordingly. For the most part, the children get caught-up quickly with work they missed during an absence, thus tuition is rarely pro-rated for random absences. If you know ahead of time that your child will be absent for several classes during one month, please visit with me about possible pro-rating tuition.
Other charges may be incurred if you are not prompt in picking up your child after class. For every 15 minutes late, I will a charge $5 fee. If you need to leave your child longer, please visit with me to make arrangements.
