Please contact the director at 509-522-2088 for a monthly tuition estimate for your family.

Invoice and Payment Schedule

Tuition is due monthly on the first of the month for the coming month. TKP accepts payments in the form of checks or cash. If the first of the month falls on a weekend or holiday, tuition is due the following business day. Late payments will be charged a $25 late fee if received after 5 pm on the 3rd of each month.

Families are emailed invoices no later than the 25th of each month. During the school year from September through May, tuition is calculated using a daily rate times the number of days per year the child is scheduled to attend, divided by nine months.  The summer session from June-August is charged based on the days a child is scheduled to attend.

Families are NOT charged for scheduled school closures such as teacher professional development days and holidays. Please see the calendar for a complete list of scheduled school closures.

Tuition Assistance

TKP recognizes the cost of high quality childcare. TKP also strongly values having diverse families enrolled. Tuition assistance is available and is calculated using a family’s gross annual household income.

There is also a 30% discount on tuition for a second sibling enrolled. The discount applies to the sibling whose tuition is less expensive.

OTHER FEES

Families are charged an annual, non-refundable registration fee. In addition to this, families who choose not to register their child for the summer session are required to pay a deposit to reserve a space for the school year. The deposit is 50% of the child’s monthly tuition. This deposit is due during annual registration. The deposit is fully refundable up to 30 business days prior to September 1. The deposit is not refundable 30 business days or less before September 1. The deposit is credited toward the September tuition.

There is a late pick-up fee of $25 per half hour or portion of half hour that a child is picked up after 12:30 pm for half day or 5:30 pm for full day.

Late tuition payments are charged a $25 fee if received after 5 pm on the 3rd of each month.

NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES

If you wish to change the days or times that your child attends, or terminate services, TKP requires 30 business days written notification. Until the end of the 30 business day period, a family is financially responsible for the full cost of tuition, regardless of a child’s attendance.
