Tuition

Tuition fee information is available from the office.  Tuition fees are evaluated on a yearly basis and parents will be notified of any changes before re-enrollment for the next school year.   Toddler I,  Toddler II,  and Preschool programs offer 5 full days, 3 full days (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) and 2 full days (Tuesday, Thursday).  The PreK/Kindergarten program is a 5  full day program only.  The room opens at 8 a.m. and children who arrive before 8 a.m. will be welcomed into the Preschool room before their class opens.

Extended Day services are available for all classrooms.  The typical Center day is up to 9-hours long.  If children will need to stay more than 9-hours, they may make this a regular part of their schedule, or make arrangements 1-week in advance with the director.  An additional fee is charged for this service.

Tuition is based on a 40-week contract.  Parents are required to make an advance two-week tuition payment and to remain one month ahead always.  Bills for the two-week advance payment are sent out by the Bursar’s office in July.  Payments should be mailed to the address noted on the bill.  Payment of this advance is required for fall entrance.  This advance payment is applied to the last two weeks of the Center operation.  If your child’s schedule changes, the advance payment will be adjusted accordingly.

Parents of children entering the program later in the year must submit a two-week advance payment, as well as the regular payment, at the time of entrance.

Payments must be made by check or money order, payable to Plymouth State University.  CASH PAYMENTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

Attendance fees are determined on an annual tuition basis.  Parents must sign a schedule contract stating days, sessions, and fees for their child at the Center.  The tuition fees reflect the actual cost of providing services to each child.  Each child has a guaranteed space.  Therefore, it is necessary that all parents are aware that payment is made for every scheduled day regardless of whether the child is present.

Please note: As stated in the tuition contract, “Tuition is determined on an annual basis and represents a total program.  At times a holiday may fall on your selected day.  There are no rebates on these holidays or for personal vacation or sickness.”

Payments may be sent directly to the Plymouth State Bursar’s office.  All statements of accounts will be issued through the Bursar’s office.  The Bursar’s office will then adjust your account in accordance with the new schedule.  Please note the policy about schedule changes described in the section of this handbook entitled “Center Schedule”.
