Monthly Tuition

childcare katy TXAll monthly tuition fees are due on the first day of each month and are considered past due on the 5th of the month. Past due fees are assessed a $10.00 late payment charge each day payments are past due. After the 15th of each month a $25 late payment fee per day will be assessed until balance is paid.

Fees are due in full without deductions or discounts for absences or holidays. Unpaid tuition for longer than two weeks will result in forfeiture of reserved place in our center. To re-enter our program, all past due fees must be paid in full, as well as another registration fee. If the classroom has a waiting list, your child will be placed on the list in date order.

Tuition rates and fees are subject to change at Katy’s ECEC discretion.

Tuition Express

All fees are debited from either your checking account or credit card. Tuition may be paid all on the 1st or ½ on the 1st and ½ on the 15th.

Late Pick Up Fee

The safety of your child is important to the staff at Katy’s ECEC. Therefore, it is important that your child be picked up in a timely fashion, so that we will always be at the proper staff/child ratio. As each child becomes accustomed to the daily routine, it can be stressful for your child if you do not arrive as expected. Parents of children at the center past the scheduled pick up time will be charged extra child care fees of $5.00 for each child for each 15 minutes or a fraction thereof past 6:15 p.m.

Afterschool Care

Our children that attend public school will be transported from public school in the Katy ECEC van. If your child will not be on the van on a given day, we ask that we be notified in writing by 2:00pm that day. Failure to do this will result in a $20 charge.

Field trips/Transportation

At certain times during the school year our Older 3’s, Pre-Kindergarten, and School Age classes attend field trips to enhance the children’s learning experiences. All parents are notified at least 48 hours prior to all field trips and are required to sign a permission slip for their child to attend. All children are required to wear the designated Katy ECEC t-shirt. On field trips the children will be transported in the KECEC van unless otherwise informed. All fees are in addition to regular tuition and must be paid prior to the field trip.

Returned Checks

In the event of a returned check for any reason a $20 returned check fee will be assessed as well as a late payment fee of $20.
