Billing Policies

At the time of registration you are entering into a contract for services with Little Village. You will be billed for these services according to your original request. Any permanent changes to the schedule must be cleared with the Director prior to the changes taking place. This includes all programs Little Village provides.

An  Annual Registration Fee of $65 is due at the time of enrollment and then again every August to register for the new school year. This fee is not pro-rated for mid-year entrance.        

Tuition is billed on Monday mornings. Each family will receive an account statement on the child's sign-in sheet by Tuesday. The statement reflects charges and payments for the current week as well as one month of account history.

Tuition is due during drop-off time the first day of the week the child attends. A late payment fee of $25 is automatically applied to any amount past two days due. Failure to bring account current may result in care being denied until account is current.

A $40 returned check fee will be applied to any account for which a check has been charged. The bank will attempt to send the check through again but still assess a charge-back fee to Little Village. This fee is passed on to the defaulting customer.

 

Holidays, Sick Days, and Vacations

Holidays are charged per normal schedule.

Little Village does not offer sick days. If your child is scheduled to be in our care, you are charged for that day, even if your child is not in attendance.

Each child is granted two weeks of vacation time per year. We appreciate a two week advance notice when you plan to use the vacation time.  The weeks do not need to be consecutive but the entirety of the vacation to be used must fall in the same calendar week. No invoice will be created for that week.

Children’s Personal Belongings Policy

Children are not allowed to bring toys and books from home to be used during free time or quiet time. We ask that all your child’s personal items be marked with their name or initials. This includes coats, sweaters, hats, shoes they change into. Marking your child’s belongings will aid in the return of their possessions in the event they are taken by mistake. Children are not allowed to trade or give away their personal belongings at Little Village.

 

Movie Viewing

Little Village is a Christian school, and as such, we strive to conduct ourselves in a manner reflective of how God would have us live. Therefore, Little Village will show G-Rated movies.


Visitors Policy

Parents are invited to visit Little Village classrooms. They MUST check in with Little Village Office BEFORE entering the class. Younger children may not be brought into the classroom during these visits.


Discipline

Little Village desires to have a very open line of communication between parents, children, and staff.

“ Time-out” is used at Little Village when a child’s behavior is unacceptable. Each time the child is removed, the period is ended with the teacher and child talking about what happened. Little Village desires to have open lines of communication betwen parents, children, and staff. If your child has questions/concerns about the events in their day, PLEASE call Little Village Office or ask your child’s teacher to contact you.

Little Village cannot allow any of the children to use physical violence or foul language as a method of handling disagreements or frustrations. In order to prevent any misunderstanding, Little Village requires parents to sign a Behavioral Statement at the time of enrollment for each child.
