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 verbal in person 30 day 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 end of care 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 or venmo. 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 4 week / 30 day 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, loss of daily income due to court appearances, document preparation fee of $350, court costs, and all attorney fees in the event of payment default.
