Extended Care Rate & Payment Policies 

Daily 7:30am-9:00am and 12:00pm-5:00pm  ~   $10.00 per hour 

The Extended Care Program is offered as an additional service to assist parents with childcare.  This program may be used on additional days other than those your child is signed up for in the Nursery program, within the extended care hours only, and on a space available basis.  Though our extended care program is very flexible, please let us know approximately when you will be picking up your child each day.  This will ensure adequate staffing.  If a child is not picked up by the close of the school at 5:00 pm, the fee for any additional time will be a minimum of $10.00, the charge for a full hour. If your child is not picked up by 5:00 pm, we will attempt to contact you or other authorized caregivers.  If we have not heard from you and can make no other contacts and your child is not picked up within a half hour of closing time, it will be necessary for us to contact authorities.

The basic program limit is a group of 20, therefore, if not a regular user, a call must be made to ascertain if space is available. We are able to accommodate more children by setting up a second grouping if given advance notice.

Regular users of Extended Care may be billed weekly; however, payment may also be made at pick up time on the day the extended care time is utilized. When billed, payment is due on receipt. If payments become two weeks in arrears, regrettably, your child will be ineligible to continue until a payment is made. Other payment schedules can be set up through mutual agreement between the parent and the Director.

Occasional users of Lunch Bunch/Extended Care are encouraged to pay on the day used.

All checks are to be made payable to Harborlight Nursery School, Inc. Please place your child’s name on all checks to assure proper credit. Payments may be mailed or brought to the classroom or to the Director’s office.

All bounced checks will carry a $15.00 fee added to the amount due.  We regret that after two bounced checks, personal checks will not be accepted and payments must be made by cash, money order or certified check.
