A registration fee is required with the application for admission. Registration fees are charged to cover enrollment procedures, orientation information and part of the printing costs for the year. All registration fees are non-refundable.
A $400 deposit fee is required at time of registration. This fee is refundable and can be applied as tuition for the last month of schooling.
Children enrolled in our program are required to pay monthly fees. Parents have the option to enroll a child in July and/or August for the new school year starting the following September. Re-registration is required each year to ensure a space for the following September.
Tuition is based on a yearly fee which reserves your child's place in the classroom during regular school hours on an ongoing basis. Post-dated monthly cheques are required for 10 months of the academic school year program when you enroll your child in the Centre. Parents wishing to pay in monthly installments in either cheque or cash must make payments on or before the first of the following month. Cheques are payable to 'Immaculate Heart Daycare Society'. Annual receipts for income tax purposes are made to all parents in January.
Payments made after the fifteen of the month are charged an additional $30.00 bookkeeping fee. Children cannot remain in the program if the previous month's tuition is unpaid. There will be a $35.00 charge on all N.S.F. cheques or any returned cheques.
Please note that some months are short months (i.e. February, December and September), but tuition installments remain the same.
Child care subsidy is available and can be applied for through the Ministry of Social Services. Parents are responsible for applying well in advance prior to the first of the month that day care services are required.
Fees are not refundable due to illness or any other absence. Children taking extended vacations will be required to pay full tuition before leaving the program to reserve the child's place in the classroom. Failing to pay tuition at any time will result in losing a place to a child on our waiting list.
Children may be withdrawn from the program with a 30 day written notice. Any unused posted dated cheques will be returned. Note there is no mid-term withdrawal for children in the Preschool program.
Term I - September - end of January.
Term II - February - end of June.
In case a mid-term withdrawal is required, the $400 deposit with be forfeited. A one month withdrawal notice by Dec. 30th is still required if you are to withdraw your child for Term II. Whenever possible, children in Montessori program should withdraw only at the end of December or June.
The Centre works in partnership with parents to provide the best learning experience for the child. We request that parents work with the staff when referrals for special needs are necessary. Should it be determined by the staff that the school cannot meet the needs of the child; the school maintains the right to request the withdrawal of the child, waiving the 30 days notice.
