ICS After School Daycare
Fees Information 2020-2021
ICS After School Daycare will be offering only Full-Time or Part-Time childcare this school year. Families will be required to register for either 5-day/week (full time) or 3-day/week (part time) in order to use Before School or After School Care. Due to the current pandemic, no occasional, one-time care (Flex) will be available this year.
The Daycare will be offering Wednesday Afternoon Care for children from JK – Grade 6 only for those families registered for Full-Time or Part-Time Daycare. Families using Part-Time Care are able to select 3 consistent days their child(ren) will use the Daycare; this can include Wednesdays from noon dismissal, but does not have to.
Rates noted are weekly, assuming a standard 5-day week, but will be billed accordingly.
The ICS After School Daycare fees are set to cover the ongoing costs of operation. They are kept as low as possible and are raised only when necessary. Fees are subject to change upon approval by the Daycare Board of Directors. Families will be given one month notice of fee changes.
Families will be billed for services monthly. Invoices itemizing the services used will be sent out at the end of each month. Payment can be made by cash, cheque (made out to ICS After School Daycare), email money transfer, or credit card via our online software system (Sandbox Software). With credit card payments, a fee of 2.9% + $0.30 will apply and will be billed on the following month’s invoice. Invoices must be paid within 30 days of their receipt.
Receipts will be issued at the end of the calendar year.
Outstanding Balance from Prior Year – New for 2020-2021
Any outstanding fees from previous year must be paid in full in order for 2020-2021 daycare registration to be accepted.
Late Payment Policy – New for 2020-2021
Invoices must be paid within 30 days of their receipt. Outstanding invoice reminders will be generated by our online billing system (Sandbox).
