Policies & Fees

Families will be required to sign an enrollment contract at the initial enrollment as well as subsequent re-enrollments.  At the time of enrollment a $60.00 initial registration fee will be charged and $30.00 every spring thereafter.  If a family has more than one child a $20.00 fee will be charged for each additional child.  Registration fees cover administrative costs and are non-refundable.  The registration fee includes two key fobs.  Additional key fobs are available for $15.00.  Key fob fees are non-refundable.  A deposit will also be required at this time.  It is equal to the first week’s tuition and will be applied to your account at that time. The deposit fee is non-refundable.

Families are required to pay for all regularly scheduled days regardless of illness, vacation or holiday closings.  Tuition payments are due in advance, no later than Friday for the week ahead.  Payments may be made with cash or check.  Credit card payments from MasterCard, Visa or Discover will also be accepted.  A fee of $10 will be assessed for late payments on Monday mornings.  A $30 fee will be assessed for returned checks

Tuition rates are determined by the number of days per week a child is scheduled to attend.  Children must be enrolled for a minimum of two days per week.  Families with two or more children enrolled will be given a 10% discount for the least expensive child(ren).

Health Policy:

Upon arrival at Willow Creek, each child will be observed by a staff person for symptoms of illness.  If a child seems too ill to participate in the daily activities of the classroom the parent will be asked to take the child home.  Parents are required to keep their child home or pick their child up if any one of the following symptoms is exhibited: fever of 101 or more degrees, skin eruptions or rash, continuous coughing or sneezing, vomiting, diarrhea, excessive drainage from nose or eyes, or any other symptoms which might indicate a contagious illness.  If a child has a fever of 100 degrees with any one of the above symptoms, the child will be sent home.

The best way to keep contagious illnesses from the school is to abide by our 24 hour policy.  Children must be 24 hours free from symptoms before returning to school.  If a child is sent home because of a fever, they must be fever free without fever-reducing medication for 24 hours before returning to school.
