    Fees & More

    Understanding Payments and Our Regulations

    Your specific rates will be outlines in your contract. RDCLC requires a two-week security deposit along with a registration fee upon enrollment.

    Deposits are refundable when requested in writing by parent at least two weeks prior to termination of the program.  Payments may be made by money order, personal check or credit card.

    You must still pay for your child’s scheduled time – regardless of attendance. Those days and times are reserved for your child. If you or your child is ill, or you chose to go on vacation your payment will still be expected on or before the due date.

    Payments are due on monthly basis by the 10th of each month. Tuition rates are subject to change with a two-week notice.  September-June will be considered school; July and August will be considered summer session.

    You will be billed a fee of $15.00 for each day the payment is not received.   If the fee isn’t paid by the following Monday morning, services will be halted until the outstanding balance is paid and your child will be accepted into care.  Continued late payments will result in termination of services (will all fee due and payable).

    Late Pickup & Early Pickup Fees

    Regular Daycare Program Hours 7:00 am to 3:00 pm

    Regular Daycare ends at 3:00 pm with a 5min pickup grace period. Any child only scheduled from 7:00 am – 3:00 pm will be billed in advance.

    The late pickup fees are as follows: $20.00 for up to a half hour, and $1.00 a minute for up to an hour. The fee is calculated to the nearest minute. These fees are for all children in the regular daycare program.

    Extended Daycare Program Hours 7:00 am to 5:30 pm

    Extended Daycare ends at 5:30 pm our building is officially closed at 6:00 pm with a 5 minute grace period.  Any child scheduled after 3:00 pm will be considered to be in the extended daycare program and will be billed in advance.  The late pickup fees are as follows: $20.00 for up to a half hour, with a 5 min grace period. $1.00 a minute for up to an hour.  The fee is calculated to the nearest minute. These fees are for all children in the Extended Daycare Program.

    You will be billed a fee of $30.00 as well as any additional bank cost that we may incur for any returned credit card payment. Services will be halted until we receive the full payment made by alternative methods.

    There is a 2-week (14 calendar days) trial period beginning on your child’s first day of care.  During this time the child care agreement can be terminated with 24 hour’s notice.

    After the initial two week trial period the agreement can be terminated by the parent with two weeks wrote notice and at a time without prior notice at the discretion of the director.

    After the initial period is over care can be terminated by a parent with 2 weeks’ notice, no other notice will be accepted. The full 2 weeks pay will be due at the time of notice.

    If the parent(s) wish to terminate this agreement without a 2 week written notice he/she agrees to pay the 2 weeks fee at the time of notification and deposit will then become nonrefundable. Subsidized parents are also responsible for given proper written notice.

    Absences for more than one week without notification and/or payment will result in an automatic withdrawal. You will still be responsible for your weekly rate for 2 weeks and any other fees you may have had during your child’s care. Re-admittance, if accepted, will include all back pay including late fees and re-registration. If parent/guardian breeches contract he/she will be liable for all collection attorney, court, any / and all costs involved in breach.

    We reserve the right to terminate without prior notice for the following reasons but not limited to, with all fees due and payable, lack of compliance in accordance with handbook policies as well as program rules and regulations.  Failure to pay or frequent late payments, failure to complete required forms, lack of parental cooperation, disrespect, conflict of interest between provider and parent false information given by parent either verbally or in writing consistent late pickups / early drop-offs disrupting our routine failure of child to adjust to the childcare program after a reasonable amount of time physical or verbal, abuse of any person, animals or property by parent or child RDCLC inability to meet the child with the appropriate care needed. Refusal from parent to help their special needs child.

    Parents, please understand that if your child is terminated from our agreement will be voided effective the termination date and your child will not be accepted for re-enrollment at any time. If we terminate your child’s enrollment, it will be out of necessity and in the child’s best interest.

    For the week(s) of the parent’s vacation, maternity leaves, or extended leave (teachers) you are still required to pay your weekly fees, to hold your child’s placement.

    Should the parent decide for any reason to remove the child from the program for any period of time without payment, the child’s enrollment will be terminated and said child must then be re-registered into the program upon return.

    There will be no guarantee that we will be able to accommodate the returning child nor have placement. In the event you will be enrolling your newborn sibling (if spaces are available), you will be required to pay the registration fee and two weeks (full amount) deposit in order to hold the position for four weeks prior to start.  We cannot hold an infant’s position for more than thirty days.

    There are a limited number of spaces available; therefore payments are not based on child’s attendance.  NO refunds are given for late arrivals, early departures, parental vacations, or exclusion due to illness, weather and holidays. Children on the educator’s program who do not attend any of the programs offered during the
    summer will be given an opportunity to pay a weekly to hold their placement for the
    upcoming school year. Should the parent not wish to hold the child’s placement then they would have to reregister in the fall for the upcoming school year providing placement is available, there is no guarantee that a child will be accommodated upon re-registration.

    Children attending the summer program have priority over children returning into the program. Any child unable to return to the program can be placed on the waiting list for up to nine months.


    Popular Questions & Answers

    RDCLC encourages parents to be involved in their child’s daycare experience.  The following is a brief description of some of the opportunities available to help parents get involved.

    • PPP group (Parent and Providers as Partners)
    • Annual bring your parent to school day
    • Class celebrations
    • Show volunteers
    • Career day
    • Come read with us Day
    • Mother’s Day Tea

    1. Children will be released only to an adult, age 18 or older. Do not send a child under 18 to the door to escort siblings to the car. Children must hold an adult’s hand walking from the door to the car.

    2. Names of those permitted to pick the child up from care should be stated on the Child Information Form.

    3. Anyone picking a child up from care must have photo identification with them.

    4. Parents should make the provider aware in advance of any alternate pick up arrangements. If arrangements are not made in advance, a parent or guardian must be contacted and a faxed release form must be receive before child will be released to
    anyone who is not pre-authorized.

    If there are custody or visitation issues to address, the daycare must have copy of any custody and visitation orders and agreements in order to enforce them.  We cannot deny the release of a child to a parent without legal court documentation such as custody order or restraining order. 

    1. Without an official documentation pertaining to custody and/or restraining order on file, the center must grant both parents access to the child.

    2. All information used in the event of an emergency will be as noted by the custodial parent.

    3. All mailings, conferences and social functions information will be sent to the attention of the custodial parent.

    4. We encourage all parents to attend all shows, teacher conferences and school functions but it is the responsibility of the custodial parent to notify the other parent of such.

    All children are to be brought into the facility and signed into the daycare program sign-in sheet at the front desk, then a teacher or assistant will perform daily health check prior to accompanying the child to their designated classroom.

    This program has been implemented for safety and security reasons.  After the child has entered their classroom, then a parent may choose to go to the room and look in on the child as we do have an open door policy in place.

    Please send your child(ren) clean, well-rested, and dressed for the day and fed (if arriving after 8:00).  It is normal for some children to have difficulty separating from parents in the morning or not wanting to leave when it’s time to go home.

    Please be very brief during these transition times. The longer you prolong the departure the harder it can get, and we need to focus our attention on all the children.  This is also a time of testing when two different authority figures are present (the parent and the provider).  Sometimes children will test to see if the rules still apply.

    During arrivals and departures, we ask that parents/guardian please back up the daycare rules.  If you do not, I will remind the child that their behavior is inappropriate at RDCLC and take action to correct, if needed.  Please remember that you are responsible for your child during drop off/pickup times; please be in control of your child(ren).

    Also, please note that no child will be permitted to come into or go out of the facility unattended. All children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.  We will only release your child(ren) to the parent/guardian or someone you designate inside the facility only.

    If someone else is to pick up your child, please notify us ahead of time.  We MUST have written permission to release your child whether or not they are on your contact list.  Please inform emergency contacts, or people designated to pick up your child, that we would need to see a photo ID we will not let a child leave without parent’s written permission and identification.  If you decide to pick up your child early, please call.

    It is easier for us to take the child away from activity and get them ready for dismissal, than a parent upsetting a child and the scheduled activity when arriving unexpectedly early. Also if you will be dropping your child off later than usual please call, this way your child will not be considered absent.  Please keep in mind that the children follow a daily classroom schedule and attendance as well as punctually are very important.

    A child arriving at school late might have a more difficult time due to confusion in routine.  If your child is going to be absent from daycare, please call. If your child is absent due to illness a doctor’s note must accompany the child on the first day back to daycare.
