Withdrawing from Care

If it becomes necessary to withdraw your child from care please provide the following:

  • This is a relationship between your family and your childcare provider. Out of respect please talk with me personally WITHOUT another parent around or call me between 12:30-2pm Monday – Friday.

  • Please provide a letter of recommendation that I can use for new families who are considering my care.

    • Think in terms of providing information based on all the love and care I’ve given to your precious little one. Teaching ABC’s, 123’s, sorting, colors, shapes, songs, changing stinky diapers, keeping carpets clean from bodily fluids and naptime accidents, potty training, solving tantrums, bandaging scrapes and hugging boo-boos, being available for late arrivals, etc. It's not a glamorous job but it is an important one in helping you raise your adorable little child that I adore!

  • A 30 day notice is accepted DURING OPEN BUSINESS HOURS ONLY

Please don’t…

  • send a text/email/letter saying you want to speak with me

  • send a text/email/letter after hours

  • Any electronic communication for matters such as this are NOT accepted

  • Upon receiving your termination, I will provide you with a final statement. The tuition payment balance is due the following day in cash. Any of my unused vacation/personal time will be added in the final bill. If payment is not received within 24 hours of receiving your final bill, there will be a $25 late fee per child / per day added.

  • Billing – I do billing for the upcoming month by the 5th of the month. A $25 fee is required to revise a statement.

  • Fees will be pro-rated in full week increments.

  • If there is ever a reason to terminate on my part, I will provide you with as much advance notice as possible.

  • I reserve the right to terminate care immediately if I feel that there are safety reasons, failure to pay, slander, etc. All pre-paid fees are non-refundable under these extreme reasons of termination.

  • If child is picked up by someone in an impaired condition care may be terminated immediately depending on circumstances. I cannot under any condition put the people in my care in unsafe situations. Any tuition paid at that time is forfeited and non-refundable and any remaining balances are due immediately or $25 late fee per child / per day will be added.

  • Accounts that are not paid within 2 days will be filed in Small Claims Court. You will be liable for all late fees, collection costs, my childcare operation costs for court appearances, document preparation fee of $350, court costs, and all attorney fees in the event of payment default.
