Tuition Payments

Tuition payments are due the 1st through the 10th of each month. Any tuition payment made after the 10th of the month will be considered late, resulting in a charge of 10% of the remaining balance due. Failure to pay the account balance will result in the student being discharged from Tender Shepherd Preschool at the beginning of the next month unless payment arrangements have been made with the director.

During the school year (August-May), the preschool does not pro-rate tuition cost.

Family Vacations

When planning a vacation, please inform the director in advance and in writing that your child/children will be gone during a certain period.  This will assist the teacher in preparing the daily lesson and snack schedules for the rest of the class. This will also help ensure that important lessons are not missed. These may easily be rescheduled when advance notice is given. Your cooperation in this matter will only serve to prepare your child/children in their academics.
