A 30-day written notice must be given to avoid incurring tuition fees past the date you plan to have your child participate. The notice must be submitted online. Online forms are considered valid and binding once submitted. Other notifications such as verbal communication or emails with a staff member will not be considered valid notices.
Once a withdrawal form has been submitted, changes to an earlier date will not be accepted. Failure to give the required 30-day notice will result in monetary charges for a full month's tuition irrespective of whether the child attends or not. This allows the center and families adequate time to prepare for the child’s departure from the center and new families adequate time to enroll.
