Child care fees are invoiced four (4) weeks in advance of child care services. The billing periods do not follow a monthly schedule. You will receive a billing schedule upon enrollment at the centre. Invoices will be emailed to parents, approximately one week before fees are due. All payments to the Centre must be paid in full by pre-authorized electronic fund transfer payments. The payment withdrawals will be made on the first day of the billing period.
Each family will complete a PAD agreement form and provide a VOID cheque or Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD) form from your Financial Institution. Forms with required information must be submitted to the administrative office. The pre-authorized payments will be subject to a transaction fee of $1.50 per transactions. *N.B.- On your bank statement you will see TELECOM OPTIONS INC. as the withdrawal Name. They are our billing systems payment processor.
Cash, cheque and money order payments will not be accepted.
Administrative staff will issue all receipts approximately one week after centre staff has received fees.
Payments received after the “due date” (refer to billing schedule) will be considered late. The following steps will be taken:
- Week 1 – payment withdrawal is made
- Week 2 – a charge of $35.00 plus a late charge of $10.00 applied to account if payment withdrawal is not made. At the end of Week 2, if payment has not been withdrawn, parents will be notified in writing that effective Monday of Week 3, their child will be suspended.
- Week 3 – child is suspended until a payment is received.
- Week 4 – if full payment has not been received child care services will be terminated.
If an EFT withdrawal cannot be pulled on the original date indicated or is returned NSF, a charge of $35.00 plus a $10.00 late fee will be assessed. Canceled EFT withdrawals and Recalled Payment fees will be treated the same as a NSF payment.
