COMPENSATION FOR TEACHER ASSISTANTS

As a parent coop, we encourage parents to assist in the classroom regularly throughout the school year. Grandparents and nannies are also welcome. Assistants are scheduled based on their availability and compensated with a $60 tuition credit for each shift worked. Some only assist once or twice a month. The enrollment process requires a background check/fingerprinting, evidence of adult vaccinations, and TB check. Contact Teacher Nicole at teacher_nicole@lpcf.org for more details.

2022-2023 TUITION POLICIES

 

Building Blocks Preschool is a tiny non-profit mountain preschool run by local families for local families. Please pay your bill on time and consider paying in advance. Payments are non-refundable. No sibling discounts are available.
PARENT PARTICIPATION: Per school year, each family takes on one school job, like maintaining the school grounds or being on the fundraising committee. Buying out of the school job is $500 per semester ($1000 per year). Each family also contributes one adult to work at one maintenance day or arrange a separate four-hour project per semester. Buying out of one semester's worth of maintenance hours is $300 ($600 per year).  As part of the enrollment process, parents express their school job preferences and schedule their maintenance days.
 
SCHOOL YEAR PAYMENTS: School year tuition is divided into nine monthly installments. Your deposit to reserve your child’s spot is two installments due on August 1. This covers your child’s tuition from the first day of school in August to the end of October. Seven additional installments are due on the first of the month from October 1 through April 1. In order to keep our costs stable, we require payment a full month in advance (e.g. November tuition due October 1).
SCHOOL YEAR PAYMENT SCHEDULE:
Due on Aug 1st - 2 installments for September and October tuition with August tuition lumped in
Due on Oct 1st - 1 installment for November tuition
Due on Nov 1st - 1 installment for December tuition
Due on Dec 1st - 1 installment for January tuition
Due on Jan  1st - 1 installment for February tuition
Due on Feb 1st - 1 installment for March tuition
Due on Mar 1st - 1 installment for April tuition
Due on Apr 1st - 1 installment for May tuition 
 
WITHDRAWL POLICIES: Payments are always non-refundable and made a month ahead of time. If you need to withdraw your child, make your decision well in advance and notify your teacher. For example, February Tuition is due January 1, so you will need to notify your Teacher before January 1 if your child will no longer be attending class in February.
 
HOW TO PAY: E-payments make the task of our parent volunteers so much easier!  Please use E-payments through our online system. If you absolutely must pay by check, please consider paying for a semester or the full year. Use the tuition drop-box at school.
 
E-payment Option 1 - ACH BANK ACCOUNT PAYMENTS:  Families can select ACH payment to have the amount due directly debited from your bank account.  This is easiest and only costs BB $1 per transaction.  For security, our payment processor requires verification of “microdeposits” the first time a family makes an ACH payment.  Following your first ACH payment, you will receive an automated email with instructions to verify the amounts of two small microdeposits into your bank account (for example $0.02 and $0.06).  
 
E-payment Option 2 - CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS: If you choose to pay by credit card - you MUST select the button "Yes" to donate the cost of processing the payment. Otherwise we will add the cost of credit card fees to your next bill.  Our little non-profit preschool cannot absorb the costs of credit card fees, and this is the only way we can accept credit card payments.
 
PAYING IN ADVANCE: We love it when families can pay for a semester or year in advance.  When viewing your “Billing” screen in the family portal, there is a blue link at the bottom to show “All Pages”.  This will show your billing amount through the end of the year.  On the payment screen, you can enter whatever total works for your family.
