2020 Tuition Schedule (effective January 1, 2020)
Late Pick Up (beyond contract times) $25.00 1st 15 minutes or fraction thereof
$1.00 per minute afterwards
The 2020 Fall School-Age tuition is $1190 per month regardless of schedule. We will be providing a Virtual Learning Program with small class sizes of no more than 12 children and 2 teachers from August 31 through December 31, 2020. Due to strict Alameda County Health Codes, families must commit to the entire fall session since we cannot add additional children if anyone drops from the program. Therefore, if you decide to pull your child(ren) from the program prior to December 31, 2020, you will continue to be charged monthly through December 31, 2020. If you pull your child(ren) from the program for any reason during the fall session, you may be allowed to re-admit your child(ren) after following the required 14-day quarantine period.
The Center observes the same holiday schedule as LLNL and also closes one day per calendar year for a staff workday (usually, but not always, the Friday before Labor Day.)
For all families, payment of tuition fees is made via Automatic Checking Account Debit to be debited on or near the 1st of each month. If parents prefer to pay by Paper check (including checks automatically sent by a bank) there will be a $10.00 handling fee per check. This fee will be waived for extra day payments, partial month payments, i.e. first and last month tuition and field trip fees. Paper Check tuition payments received after the fifth day are considered late and are subject to a late fee assessment of $25.00.
All payments are required in advance of your child's attendance.
Families needing to withdraw their child(ren) from the Children's Center must notify the Center in writing one month in advance of withdrawal or payment in lieu of notice will be required. Additionally, families must give one month notice upon submitting any care change requests.
Part-time rates are prorated according to the full-time monthly rate plus an additional 20% surcharge (Part-time is Two or Three full days per week).
Family vacation time taken during the year is not refundable.
Our tuition rates are subject to change annually in January.
