Deductions:

Late Pickup – Because of the small size of our toddler class it is imperative that you pick up your child(ren) at your designated time. If you have an emergency and must be late, please call and inform us so that we can make sure we have enough staff (dictated by State law) to cover your child. The time associated with Late pick will be billed at the drop in charge of $10 an hour.

After 6:00 pm late fees are: 1-5 minutes $10; 5-10 minutes $20; 10-15 minutes $30; etc.

Childcare Tuition Payments: The tuition payments for Mt. Zion Preschool are due on the first day of the month. A $25 late fee is added to payments received after the 10th of the month. A $30 fee will be assessed for any returned checks.

School Breaks: There will be days when the childcare center is closed (i.e. Christmas, Easter, holidays, etc., please refer to calendar) and no childcare will be offered. Additionally, if you know in advance days that your child will not be attending (vacations, sickness, etc.), please keep us informed.

MAKE-UP DAY CLARIFICATION

The policy for Make-up days is as follows: Your child is available for a makeup day, at no charge, if the school is closed for a holiday or a weather related school closure on your child’s scheduled day. This policy does not extend to days that are missed due to illness, personal reasons or vacations. If you wish to attend another day, the drop in fee is $10 per hour. Mt. Zion is happy to help parents out whenever we can. However, drop in is determined by availability, and must be approved by Mrs. Wu, Director, and/or your child’s teacher prior to the day requested. Class size is dictated by State of Colorado regulations regarding child/teacher ratios.

Drop-in Care & Fees: The standard drop-in care fee will be $10 per hour. If your child is not picked up by their scheduled departure time, or arrives before 8:00 am, you will be charged the drop-in fee. This fee is a flat rate that will be charged whether you use 15 minutes or one hour. If your child attends part time and you require an additional day/hours, please call in advance and arrangements will be made. We understand that emergencies do occur and will gladly take care of your child, however, please let us know as soon as possible.

Summer Attendance: In order to staff effectively for the summer, all families will receive a form requesting information about summer attendance. If your child is not attending during the summer, and you wish to attend Mt. Zion for the following “school year”, you must fill out a registration form, along with a registration fee, for the fall in order for us to reserve your child’s space.
