Earthplace Preschool Policies and Procedures

Finance Policy

Family membership
We require that each family have a one-year family membership at the time of registration. Membership must be maintained while your child is enrolled in our preschool. As a non-profit nature center, Earthplace relies on the continuing support of our families.

Nonrefundable registration fee and contract deposit
A non-refundable registration fee of $300 is due at contract signing. Also due at this time is a non-refundable contract deposit of $700, which will be deducted from tuition payments.

Credit card fee
If paying tuition by credit card, please note that a 2.25% transaction fee will be added to cover credit card fees incurred.  

Late payment fee
If the tuition is not paid by the date indicated on the bill or during the two week grace period, a $50 late fee will be added.

Payment plans
Please contact the preschool director if you would like to arrange a payment plan

Bounced checks
If the bank charges us a fee, we pass the fee along to you.

Tuition refunds
Withdrawal of student: If a child is withdrawn from school before the end of the school year, a pro-rated refund of the tuition is given only when another child takes the withdrawn child's spot. When the withdrawal is for medical reasons, or when a child leaves to attend a special services preschool, a pro-rated refund will be given even if the spot has not been filled.
