Payment plans may only be made up to three times per calendar year. Late payments, or payment arrangements in excess may be cause for dismissal.
Waiting List Application Fee -
All new families are required to pay a $25 application fee at the time of submitting the waiting list application. If after submitting your child's application, you choose not to attend, you will forfeit your application fee. Your waiting list application will not be accepted without the $25 fee.
Supply Fee -
To cover the cost of our many activities and projects, a $60 per child fee will be added to tuition invoices 3 times a year. Summer, Fall and Winter (supply fee will be pro-rated for those enrolling later in summer or enrolling for partial semester sessions).
How much tuition will be billed each month?
MDS averages the number of school weeks per month over the course of the school year. This means your tuition will be the same amount each month, regardless of how many school weeks are actually in that month. Monthly tuition is determined by the number of hours and days your child attends each week by 4 (the average number of school weeks per month).
Drop-In Care -
Drop-in care is sometimes available at $5.00 per hour for Pre-K and $5.50 per hour for Preschool, Toddler, Waddler and Infants. We do require advance notification to verify that space is available.
Summer Holding Fee -
A summer holding fee is available if you wish to spend the summer with your child while holding their space at MDS. You have the option of payment this fee in full at $900 for June, July and August or spreading the payment over the course of the school year by adding an additional $100 to your monthly tuition payment.
Sick Days & Early Pick-Ups -
There is no credit for sick days or early pick-up times.
Late Pick-Up Fee -
Our program ends promptly at 5:00pm. If your child is picked up past this time, you will be required to pay an additional fee of $5.00 per minute.
If a parent/guardian does not show up to pick up their child by 5:00pm, the teachers will immediately call the parent/guardian and emergency contacts. If the child remains at the school at 5:30pm without communication from the parent/guardian and no designated person arrives to pick up the child, then the police will be contacted and a police officer will come to the school and take the child to the police station.
