All services are prepaid.  Accounts are considered delinquent at 12-noon on your scheduled paydate.  If your
child is not in attendance on your scheduled paydate, you are still expected to pay!  Failure to do so will result
in a late fee penalty added to your account.  Account may be turned over to a collection agency.  (business
name) does not accept post-dated checks.

You may pick the pay dates that work the best for your budget (daily, weekly, every other week, on the 15th and
30th...)  However, once you have selected a pay date, you cannot change it without first consulting (business
name), as my budget is created around the pay dates of all my clients.

Tuition fees are based on a childcare services received between 7:00am and 5:00pm.  Any additional care
needed before or after these hours will be billed at the appropriate hourly rate.  (Business name) is under no
obligation to to provide an extension of care.

made payable to (Provider Name).  Cash payments need to be for the exact amount.  Change will not be made
and accounts will not be credited.


VACATIONS AND SICK DAYS:

Absences:
In the event your child(ren) are scheduled to attend but leave early or do not attend at all, you are
responsible for paying for the time they would normally be here.  Although, they are not in my care, I must hold
that spot open for their return.

Please call when appointments, absences, or hift changes will afffect your child's schedule.

Parent Vacations: (Business Name) allows for 5 vacation/illnessdays a year for full time clients and 3 days a
year for part time clients.  These days are redeemable after 60 days of enrollment.  Due to contract renewals,
no vacation/sick days may be used between January first and March second, 2006.

One vacation/sick day is equal to one day of your child's regularly scheduled atttendance times.  You may use
these days all at once or one at a time.  Once you have used your vacation/sick days, you will be required to
pay your regular tuition rate for any future absences.

Vacation/sick days do not carry over to the new year.  If a child goes from full time to part time or vice versa,
vacation/sick days will adjust accordingly.

If you have not earned your vacation/sick days or have already used them, your account will be charged full
price.  Payment is due before vacation begins to guarantee your child's position upon return.

You are encouraged to schedule your vacations to coincide with (business name) closures to avoid paying for
your vacation time.  Although not necessary, I would appreciate at least one week notice so I may plan
activities and meals accordingly.

Provider will give a minimum of two-week notification for vacations lasting two or more consecutive business
days.  You are not expected to pay for these vacation days. Parents are responsible for securing alternate care.
