Payment: Payment is always due in advance with no deduction for any absences, holidays, or closures due to inclement weather, power outages, or other situations beyond our control. Little Lights will be expected to have annual increases that are prompted by economic inflation and ever-increasing costs of operation. The increase will take effect every September. Full time children may attend child care for a maximum of 10 hours a day. A fee of $5.00 will be charged per day when a child is left at the center longer than 10 hours.
Payments: Tuition payments are due weekly on the first day that a child attends.
Tuition checks are to be placed in the mailbox next to the Parking Lot door.

Little Lights is offering online payments.  You will be required to set up an account upon registration if using a credit card.  

Pay Tuition Online: Pay with credit card (tuition + $5 weekly fee to pay with credit card).  Accepting VISA, Mastercard, Debit & Check Cards or pay using automatic withdrawal from checking account. 

Late Pick-Up Fees: Little Lights closes at 5:30pm daily. This means that you and your child must be leaving Little Lights at 5:30pm. A fee of $5.00 will be charged to parents who pick up their child between 5:30 and 5:45pm. If you late a second time, a fee of $8.00 will be charged to your account. An additional fee of $1.00 per minute will be charged for every minute after 5:45pm. This fee will be added on to your child's tuition. If you arrive late to pickup your child, there will be a form that you have to sign.

Late Payment Charges: Late payments can pose serious problems for our program. Therefore we have put procedures in place to reduce their impact. Tuition will be considered past due if not received by Noon on Friday. After Noon on Friday, a late charge of $8.00 per day will be assessed to your account.
If you account becomes more than 31 days past due, you will receive a written notice from the Director that your account needs to be paid within two weeks. If a payment has not been received in two weeks, your child may be asked to be withdrawn until payment has been made in full. If you pull your child because you are not able to pay the tuition, you will have a week to pay the money otherwise your child's spot will be given to someone on the waiting list. If you are only able to pay a certain amount, please discuss with the Director about setting up a payment plan. If you child withdrawals and we do not receive the money, first we will send you a letter reminding you of what you own. Second we will call you to remind you and to make sure that you received our letter. If an agreement is not reached after these two reminders we will have to send your name to a collection agency.

It is important that parents take tim to see their child's classroom and make sure our learning environment will meet your family's needs and expectations. During this time the director will have enrollment paperwork available. An electronic packet is available here. Please make sure you update your information with the director and classroom teachers if there are changes.
