The Center operates on a ten-month calendar, September through June, with optional two-week summer sessions during the months of July and August. During the summer months, a child can attend none or any number of the sessions and still have a space reserved for the following Fall. The tuition is divided into ten equal monthly installments and is due on the first school day of each month. Upon acceptance to the Center, a deposit of one month’s tuition is required in order to hold your space. This deposit payment will be applied to the last month of your child’s first year at the Center. Deposit payments are non-refundable.
Monthly tuition for 2016-2017 is $1230.
At the beginning of the year, parents receive a contract stating the total tuition fee and specifying the monthly tuition payment. Parents who are paid on the regular weekly or monthly payroll of Boston University can have tuition payments deducted directly from their payroll checks. Arrangements must be made with the University’s Payroll Office to authorize these deductions. Payroll authorization forms are available from the Director of the Center. For those families not using payroll deduction, checks must be made payable to Boston University and should be given to the Director. The Center provides full services each day regardless of whether the child is present or not. Therefore, no reduction in tuition can be made for absences.
The Center is open Monday through Friday 8am to 6pm and follows the administrative calendar for recognized holidays at Boston University, with the exception of the week before the Fall semester begins when the Center is closed to prepare for the new school year. For snow days, the Center closes if Boston University closes. However, in severe weather conditions when the University is open, staff may have difficulty arriving on time and parents must stay with their children at the Center until enough staff has arrived to care for the children.
