LHELC Financial Policies
All tuitions must be paid in advance due by the 15th of each month. Accounts will be considered delinquent if not paid by the 20th of each month. Therefore, a $10.00/month fee will be charged on any outstanding balance on the next month billing. Any account more than 30 days past due will result in removal of the child from the program. Any account 60 days past due will be turned into a collection agency. We use AETNA.
Payment made by mail (using return envelope provided) or in person at the school office or front desk. Payment cannot or will not be accepted by any daycare worker.
NSF Checks – There is a $10.00 charge for every NSF check that is issued through the accountant’s office. Thereafter the payments need to be made with Money Orders or Cash.
Credit Card Payments are accepted by phone or by coming to the front desk. If you are going to use a VISA or Master Card (credit or debit) on a monthly basis, an authorization form can be signed and filed in advance for automatic processing each month.
NO CREDIT WILL BE GIVEN FOR ABSENCES. Traded days cannot be substituted for absent days; an extra day charge will be added for any extra days. A form is available at each Parent Station labeled – Extra Days and Change of Schedules.
If a personal crisis causes a problem with payment, PLEASE contact Cyndi Lentz the Center Director before past due date (the 20th of the month) or Mona Myers in Accounts Receivable.
LATE ARRIVAL CHARGES
$1.00 per minute will be charged after 6:00pm. This charge will be according to the Daycare clock. Please synchronize your time! This payment is given directly to the caregiver. You will be required to sign a statement showing your late fee. If payment is not made that night, payment will need to be made within the week.
