Preschool Enrollment is open to all children between the ages of 3 (if potty-trained) and through kindergarten whose needs can be met by Lighthouse Learning Center. Authorization for admission is made by the Director if the child is of appropriate age and determined to be socially, emotionally, and physically mature enough for preschool. If classes are filled when a parent calls, the parent may request an application for the waiting list to fill vacancies as they occur. As vacancies occur during the year, they will be filled from the waiting list.

TUITION & FEES
Preschool Tuition Options:
- Lighthouse Learning Center's preschool hours are 8:15 AM to 11:15 AM.
- You can choose Monday-Friday; or Monday/Wednesday/Friday; or Tuesday/Thursday.
- The monthly tuition is based upon the preschool plan chosen.
Monthly rates are as follows:
5 days a week - $200
3 days a week - $155
2 days a week - $130
- Payments are due on the 1st of each month and will be considered late after the 10th of the month.
If there is a problem with your account or if you will not be able to pay on the due date, please talk with the Director before the bill is due. If you are unable to pay your bill on the due date, you may ask for a payment agreement stating when you will pay the amount due. Payment agreements may be for a one-time situation or to change the normal due date to a different time in the month on an ongoing basis. A late charge of $5.00 per day will be assessed on all late payments. Tuition can be mailed or dropped off at the Preschool.
Dis-enrollment for Nonpayment:
Any account not paid by the 5th working day after it is due, or any payment agreement not paid on the due date, will be sent a past due notice. Children will be dis-enrolled if an account is 30 days past due. Children may be dis-enrolled within a shorter timeframe if a repeat violation of the payment policy or agreement. In the event an account should remain delinquent, the Preschool reserves the right to turn the account over to a professional agency for collection. All payments, including registration fees, will be applied to the oldest balance on the account.
If a check is returned, you will be assessed a $25.00 returned check fee. If the amount is not paid, dis-enrollment procedures will be initiated. After the second returned check, the client must pay on a cash basis.
Social Service Payments:
If your child care is paid for by a government or community agency, please be advised that the late and returned check fees will not be covered. We request you have your caseworker send all contract information to the center. Parental fees must be paid on a timely basis.
Lighthouse Learning Center does not give credit for any vacation time or sick days.
