Tuition Payments Policy
- All weekly fees are due by noon on Wednesdays.
- Charges for the prior week are processed on Monday.
- A Late Payment Fee of $25 will be charged to any account that is two (2) weeks or more past due.
For those receiving LINK assistance, your child must attend our daycare for a minimum of three (3) days each week. If you are unable to meet this weekly requirement, your child’s slot will be give to another child on the waiting list and your child’s enrollment will be terminated. LINK assistance allows for a specific number of days each month for your child to be in our care. If your child attends daycare for more days than are allotted, the daily drop-in fee ($25) will be charged to your account. If you use LINK to pay for charges, all weekly fees are due by noon on Wednesday. A Late Payment fee of $25 will be charged to any account that is two (2) or more weeks past due.
Late Pickup Fee
A Late Pick-Up Fee of $10 will be charged when a child is picked up after 6:05 p.m., plus an additional $1 per minute. Late fees are due the next day the child addends daycare.
If the Business Office has difficulty collecting payment for an outstanding daycare bill, the center will take the responsible party to Magistrate Court. When this happens, the child(ren) of this parent/guardian cannot return to the Daycare until all fees associated with the account and the collection process are paid.
There will be a charge of $25 for all non-sufficient funds (NSF) transactions. Your bank may also charge NSF fees on your account. Any check returned by your bank for insufficient funds must be reissued and any bank fees paid within five (5) days of notification. If a second insufficient funds transaction is returned, then you will be required to reimburse the payment and bank fees within five (5) days with cash only. In addition, all future daycare services must be paid for with cash only. Checks will not be accepted for any reason on any account if more than one insufficient check has been returned.

Here at Lighthouse Christian Academy and Daycare Center, we value the time that families are able to spend together. Therefore, we allow each child vacation days to be used instead of payment for our full time program.
