Withdrawing from Care

I value our relationship and your family. Saying goodby is VERY hard on all of us.

YOU NEED TO TERM CARE: Please have an in person conversation when needing to terminate care. That is always welcomed and always encouraged as the preferred method of withdrawing from my child care.

  • Please talk with me personally without other parents around or call me.

  • I require a 2 week withdrawal notice accepted DURING OPEN BUSINESS HOURS ONLY, M-F 7:30am-4pm. Any fees due are required immediately in cash.

  • At the time of withdraw from care notice is given your 30 day deposit gets applied to the last days of care minus my earned personal time.

    • See Tuition & Fees tab under Handbook tab for more explanation: All tuition, registration fees, and deposits are non-refundable. You use it or lose it.

  • After verbal notice please provide a letter of recommendation that I can use for my website for new families to view

    • Some topics to include in letter of reference may be:

      • 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 daycare very clean and sanitized

      • potty training ease

      • solving tantrums

      • bandaging scrapes and hugging boo-boos

      • being available for late picks early, and early drop offs

      • It's not a glamorous job but it is an important one in helping you raise your little one/s that I adore!

It's hard enough to say goodbye - please don't do the following:

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

  • send a text/email/letter during non-business hours/vacation/time off (you would not want your boss to tell you after hours or on vacation that they are letting you go)

AFTER NOTICE IS GIVEN

  • Upon receiving your withdrawal notice, I will provide you with a final statement. The tuition balance is due by the next morning, in cash, venmo or google pay. Any of my unused 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 added, per child / per day.

  • Billing – I do billing for the upcoming month by the 5th of the month. A $10 fee is required to revise a statement

  • Fees will be pro-rated in full week increments

IF I NEED TO TERM CARE:

  • If I ever need to terminate care, I will provide you with as much advance notice as possible. If you in return leave before the last date of care that was given, the 2 week notice will apply.

  • Upon termination, all tuition, deposits, unused/earned vacation/personal time will be used towards the final days of care.

IMMEDIATE TERMINATION

  • 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.
