ACADEMY POLICIES

 

Tuition

 

Fees are figured on a semester basis.  The first tuition payment (equaling 1/4 of the total tuition for fall or spring semesters) is due two months prior to the first day of class and is non-refundable.  This first payment guarantees your child’s placement in the program.

 

 The balance of your child’s tuition is payable in monthly installments, with payments due on the 5th of each month.  Checks should be made payable to “CDT Kids” and can be left in the tuition box or office.

We require one month advance notice if you wish to withdraw your child from the program. You are financially obligated for that month.  Tuition is not pro-rated for absences due to illness or family vacations, etc.

If you have financial difficulties please let us know, it is likely we can work something out.  Please do not allow money to terminate your child's services. Tuition reductions are applied for families with more than one child enrolled in a CDT Kids class.  A 10% discount will be applied to the tuition amount if the entire amount is prepaid one week before classes start.

Arrival and Departure

Children must be signed in and out daily.  Sign-in/out sheets are located at classroom entrances.  Transporters other than parents or guardians must be on an approved list. Transporters are required to show a drivers’ license before child will be released to them.

 

Please call us if your child is going to be absent or late to class.  This helps when planning and preparing activities for the day.

 The  program must begin and end promptly since our classroom teachers are therapists who see clients  in addition to work associated with CDT.  For this reason we cannot wait for pickups that are more than fifteen (15) minutes late without a phone call.  Three "excused" delays will be permitted per semester.  After three delays, with or without a phone call, you will be billed $10.00 for every half hour that you are late.  If you have any questions about this policy, please discuss your concerns with the program coordinator.  The CDT Kids staff thanks you for respecting their time.

 

Health and Safety

The Arizona Department of Health Services requires an up-to-date immunization record for all children enrolled child care centers.

 If your child is ill, please do not bring him/her to school.  Your child should remain at home if he/she has any one of the following:

1.    A temperature over 99 orally or 100 by rectum.  Your child should remain home 24 hours after disappearance of any elevated temperature.

 2.   An upset stomach or diarrhea within the last 24 hours.

 3.   Any undiagnosed rash.

 4.   Excess nasal discharge or red and swollen eyes.

 If your child becomes ill during the school session, we will telephone a parent to request the child be taken home.  If your child contracts a contagious disease such as measles, chicken pox, pink eye, etc., please contact us so that other families can be notified.

 Whenever your child is absent, please call and leave a message.
