A one month nonrefundable tuition deposit is required and is applied to your child's last month of tuition. Tuition is due by the 15th of each month beginning in August. Each monthly payment represents 4 weeks of the school year. except for your last payment which will be 3 weeks (35 weeks). Weekly payments are also acceptable and should be paid at the beginning of each week. Tuition is due for each of 35 weeks of school regardless of holidays, snow days, or whether your child is absent. Families are not charged for December Recess, Winter Recess or Spring Recess. NO DEDUCTIONS OR MAKE UP DAYS ARE MADE FOR ABSENCE, SNOW DAYS, PERSONAL VACATIONS OR OTHER CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL. Each family must sign a financial agreement before their child may attend.
West Bee Nursery is part of Act 166 Publicly Funded Pre-K and offers tuition discounts to families living in contracted towns.

Late Payments
West Bee Nursery School strives to keep its tuition affordable. As a non-profit program, we rely heavily on tuition to keep our program operating. Your one month deposit and tuition are needed to purchase supplies, pay staff and to pay for various expenses such as insurance, rent, taxes, telephone, photocopies, etc. It is vital that your tuition is paid promptly at the beginning of each week (or month) to keep our school running smoothly. If tuition is not paid for two consecutive weeks, a written notice will be sent to you and the Board of Directors. If tuition is not paid for three weeks, the child will not be able to attend until the balance due is paid in full.

Withdrawal/Schedule Changes
Once you have signed your financial agreement and your child is attending West Bee, your contract is in effect. Withdrawals and changes in schedules directly affect the revenue of our school. TWO WEEKS WRITTEN NOTIFICATION IS REQUIRED BEFORE WITHDRAWAL. While we understand some changes are unforeseeable, we cannot guarantee that changes can be made in schedules after school has begun. Requests for adding or dropping days must be submitted in writing to the Board of Directors who will then make a decision based on time of year, availability of slots and/or whether there is a waiting list.
