Tuition must be paid weekly before services are rendered. Payments must be paid on Monday in advance of the tuition period. Payments submitted this way must be made by credit card, check or money order, payable to NCLCD and may be placed in tuition envelopes and deposited ONLY in the payment drop box located next to the administrative office. All cash payments must be paid in the office where you will be given a receipt.
All tuition for the week is due by 6:00 PM on Wednesday. Payments made after the close of business on Wednesday are subject to a $20.00 surcharge added to the family’s account. If payment is not received by the close of business on Thursday, the family will be suspended for non-payment of tuition until all charges are paid.
There is a $35.00 fee when checks are returned from the bank without payment.
Payments during Absenteeism and Vacations
The school operates on an annual budget based on an annualized tuition rate that is divided into weekly payments. We try to provide the highest quality program on a budget comprised on the lowest possible weekly rate. In order to do this, no credit can be given for absenteeism or vacations. Each family receives one (1) annual vacation week (January 01 thru December 31), which will allow the child to be absent for 5 consecutive days without being charged the holding spot fee of $25. Requests for families to use this credit must be submitted to NCLCD in writing and signed by the parent or guardian prior to the absence.
