AFTER HOURS POLICY
Tree Hill Learning Center closes promptly at 5:45 p.m. daily. All children must be picked up by that time. In the event that child remains at the center past closing, a teacher will stay with the child and follow the following procedures:
• Every effort will be made to contact the child's parents to come pick the child up.
• If a parent cannot be reached, one of the two emergency contacts will be called. Identification will be required by this person in order for us to release your child to them. Parent/legal guardian will be notified as soon as possible that the child has been released to one of their emergency contact persons if they arrive and find the school to be closed.
• If the teacher has not been able to contact anyone by 8:00 p.m. to come for the child, the child will be considered abandoned and the police will be called**.
• Late Pick ups (after 5:45 PM) will result in a $35 fee.
**Please note: We have to make these provisions in the event that this situation ever develops. Our sincere hope is that we never have to implement this procedure. Working together as a partner in your child's care will make your experience with Tree Hill Learning Center a pleasant one. Please try to notify us of any situation or emergency that occurs that may prevent your from picking up your child on time. We are happy to work with our families in any way possible.
Tree Hill Learning Center is on a monthly tuition schedule. We offer full-day (up to 10 hours per day) and half-day (up to 5 hours per day) programs.
Tree Hill bills one month in advance for space to be reserved in your child's class. Payment is due the 5th of each month. A $10 late fee will be applied to accounts 10 days past due, and $20 will be applied after 20 days past due.
Ten Hour Policy: State law dictates that children may not be in child care for more than 10 hours per day. At Tree Hill we enforce this policy by charging a $25 fee per day each child is present at Tree Hill for over 10 hours.
We require a 30-day notice for any schedule changes, vacations, or withdrawal from our program.
We accept payments in cash, check, money order, American Express, Visa, or MasterCard.
We reserve the right to re-evaluate our rates at any time. In the event that our tuition rates change, we will provide one month's notification.
For divorced and separated families: We do not bill parents separately. Please make co-payment arrangements between yourselves. We consider account liability to rest with those signed as enrolling parent(s)/legal guardian(s).
