 Last Month’s Tuition Payment

Activity Fee

An activity fee of $65 ($40 for Friday MDO program) is due prior or on September 1st. This fee contributes towards expenses incurred for special events such as: Fall Festival, Merry Andrew Afoot, Thanksgiving Feast, Christmas Performance, and the Graduation/ Spring Ceremony, especially those including special guest performers. The activity fee also covers some expenses associated with the end of the year memory book, and a special Mother’s Day and Christmas project.

 

Lunch Bunch Fee

The cost for this drop in program is $10 per Lunch Bunch attended and can be paid at drop off or paid along with the monthly tuition. 

 

Withdrawal

If you must withdraw from Busy Bee before March 1, and you give us 30 days written notice, we will apply your pre-paid May payment to the tuition for the last month attended. However, no refund will be given without the required 30 days written notice before withdrawing your child. No refund of the May tuition will be available after March 1st since it is unlikely that we can fill any spots that late in the year. Please notify us as soon as possible if you plan to withdraw your child, as there may be another child on the waiting list.

Please use this Withdrawal Notice Form to submit your 30 day written notice.  Student Withdrawal Notice
