What about Wrap-Around VPK Care & days when VPK does not meet but I still need childcare?
Wrap-Around VPK Care is available for children attending the ELC with a VPK Certificate of Eligibility but needing care after VPK instruction hours end. Wrap-Around VPK Care provides care for those children from the end of the VPK instruction time until 6 pm.
The daily fee will be used for any VPK student needing care on a VPK holiday when the ELC is otherwise operating (example: spring break week).
When is tuition due?
Tuition is due on the 1st day of each month and will not be prorated or discounted due to school holidays, emergency closings, severe weather closings or child’s absence due to illness, vacation etc. Tuition is considered late if not received by the 5th calendar day of the month, and a late fee of $25 will be added. Students will not be admitted to the classroom if overdue tuition and fees are not paid by the 10th calendar day of the month, and may lose his/her place in the program.
Are there any discounts for siblings?
Yes, we offer discounts including a discount for multiple children and annual prepay of tuition.
What is your payment policy?
Payments may be made by cash, personal check, cashier’s check, or credit card. Payments are expected on time with no exceptions. Late fees will be added to any account with an outstanding balance due after the 5th calendar day of the month. Payments may also be made online through the ELC’s secure website.
