Tuition and Fees:
$130 per week for level P1 (ages 2 1/2 – 3 1/2)
$125 per week for levels P2, P3, E1, E2, E3, and E4
Tuition is figured on a yearly basis. After subtracting the days we are not in session, the base tuition is then divided into 52 equal weekly payments. Therefore, tuition is the same amount every week, regardless of how many school days are in that week. Due to the fact that we are not able to fill a spot for only one or two weeks, parents must pay their child care tuition whether their child is here or not, including vacations, etc.
Kennedy Academy has a very strict “No Pay/No Stay” policy. This means if tuition is not paid on Monday, your child can not stay on Tuesday. There are absolutely NO EXCEPTIONS to this rule.
Kennedy Academy has several payment choices available to parents. Preferred method of payment is auto debit from your bank account. The next preferred payment method is cash or money order. If none of these payment methods will work for your family, please contact the office to make alternate arrangements. Parents may choose whether to pay weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. However, the payments are always due in advance and if you are a weekly or bi-weekly payer, the payments must be made on Monday morning. Monthly payers must pay on the morning of the first school day of the month. Tuition that is not paid on the day it is due will be assessed a $5 per day late fee payment. Parents who consistently fail to pay their tuition on time risk losing their child’s position at the school. There is a $30 return check fee for any check returned for any reason. The returned check fee and the replacement tuition payment must be made in cash immediately to the school office. After any family has a second check returned, the family will no longer be allowed to pay by check.
If you choose to terminate your child’s enrollment at Kennedy Academy, we require a 30-day notice. This 30 days allows us time to fill your child’s position at the school. If you choose not to attend during the 30 days, you will still be financially responsible for the tuition during this time.
Yearly tax statements will be made for enrolled parents by the end of January each year. Parents that are not currently enrolled can call and request a copy of their tax statement for the prior year. Please be sure to hold on to your yearly tax statement once it is received. There will be a $5 replacement fee to reissue the tax statement.
Kennedy Academy is contracted with Social Rehabilitation Services to accept tuition subsidy. Parents who receive child care subsidy from SRS are required to pay their subsidy payment on the first day of attendance each month. After we have received a confirmation number and amount of payment for your account, we will then divide the remaining balance to be paid by the parent each week for the remainder of the month.
