    Hi. We are closed on federal holidays.
    How do for-profits handle tuition for the week for part-timers who come on Mondays?

    Hi Patricia,
    Our center is for-profit and we charge a flat rate fee that it not reduced during holidays. It's in our contract which parents sign when they first enroll their child that the weekly fee they pay is a flat rate and is not reduced if their child has not attended. We also do not offer part-time fees. However, have you thought about offering the families the option of attending another day during the week since your school was closed the day their child was supposed to attend?

    Sincerely,

    Good morning.  We are closed on Presidents' Day every year for a staff development day.  Full tuition is charged for families.  Holidays that the center is closed are included in tuition.

    When I opened M/W and Tu/Th paid the same tuition, but it was clearly unfair. I ultimately altered so that the tuition reflected the service the children recieved.

    The centers I have worked at in the past charge their part-timers just as they would normally be there. So if they are there normally on a Monday they get charged the same. All fulltime kids pay so we always kept it the same for both.
