The tuition, as per child's schedule, is due and payable on or before the 1st of each month. A late fee of $40 is levied after the 3rd business day of the due date, and $12/day after the 7th day. Late amounts will immediately be withdrawn from the customer deposit, and the shortfall will be assessed in the next invoice. Any declined transactions/returned checks will incur a fee of $45 and Abacus Montessori then may request future payments via cashier's check/money order.
An Enrollment Deposit of $350 is due with this application. The receipt of this deposit and this signed Agreement constitute a contract that the student will attend Abacus Montessori Academy unless a 30 day written notice of withdrawal is given. If a 30 day written notice of withdrawal is not given, a penalty equivalent to a 30 day notice is automatically assessed to the parent, plus any interest at 18% per annum, if applicable, and Abacus Montessori Academy will immediately forfeit all deposits, refer the account to collection agencies, and/or pursue other legal course of action to recover all penalties, interest, and legal and court costs incurred in connection with this account. In all cases, the Registration Fee is non-refundable.
The services to be provided as part of the daycare fee are only care and education for the scheduled number of days/week. If your child will be at Abacus Montessori Academy for fewer than 5 days a week, please indicate the days that you would like your child to attend. We strongly recommend choosing days in a row for the benefit of your child, and Mon or Fri in the sequence.
I, the parent/guardian:
1. received complete written program information at the time of enrollment (§ 3270.124, 3280.121, 3290.121)
2. agree to update the emergency contact/parental consent form information whenever changes occur or every 6 months at a minimum (§ 3270.124, 3280.121, 3290.121)
3. agree to provide a 30 day written notice of withdrawal failing which I agree to pay a penalty equivalent to a 30 day notice to Abacus Montessori Academy plus any interest at 18% per annum, if applicable.
The Academy reserves the right to cancel a student's enrollment if payments are not made by the agreed upon due dates. Furthermore, in cases where tuition is past due, the Academy will reserve the right to withhold records to other schools. Late payments are subject to a late charge of 1.5% per month (an annual rate of 18%). In cases of failure to pay, the parent or guardian who is responsible for payment agrees to pay to the extent permitted by law, the Academy's expenses of enforcement and collection.
Abacus Montessori Academy reserves the right to terminate this Agreement if the student's needs can't be met.
