Finances/Tuition Policy

The cost for the primary program is $7000 for the 2014/2015 school year. This tuition covers the 9-3 school
day. Children may be left as early as 8 am and picked up as late as 5:00 pm.  Extra hours are assessed a
charge of $6.00 per hour or any part of an hour.  (Kindergarten tuition is tax-deductible.)

A two-month non-refundable deposit is due by May 15th.  Space is limited and early registration
is encouraged.  After this initial deposit there are three payment plans from which to choose.

Option 1
 If you choose this option, you continue to pay monthly installments, but with a 5% service fee added to
each invoice. Payments are due the last week of each month for the upcoming month.

 Option 2
   If you choose this option, the second three installments representing the first half of the school year will
be due by September 15 and you will receive a 3% discount for this semi-annual plan. The second half
amount for this plan will be due by January 15.

   Option 3
   Option 3 is the annual plan. The full 10 installments are due by June 15th. There is a 5% Discount for this
option.

After a one week grace period, a late fee of $10 for each day tuition is not received will be assessed.
Enrollment will be subject to cancellation if an account becomes two months past due.  Any unpaid balances
will be assessed a finance charge of 1 1/2 % a month or 18% annually. In addition to the daily late fees, any
unpaid balance beyond this time will be assessed a finance charge of 1 1/2 % a month or 18% annually.  
There will be a $20 service charge to cover bank fees for any checks returned to us for insufficient funds.  
By enrolling your child you agree that you have read and understand DELC tuition policies and agree to
meet your financial obligations. By enrolling your child you also agree to pay this annual amount whether
your child attends the entire school year or any part of it. All reasonable collection charges, including
attorney fees, will apply to delinquent accounts.




I have read and understand the DELC tuition policies and agree to meet my financial responsibilities.
