Tuition, Fees and Payment Policy
Tuition and fees are due by the 10th of each month whether or not you receive a bill. Each family has a “Family Folder” located in the reception area and bills will be placed in your folder by the first of each month. Some charges such as early morning care, extended care and special lunch days are collected in arrears. Your bill will reflect the amount of charges. On the 11th, any outstanding balances are past due and a late charge of $20 per child will be applied to all unpaid balances. If the 10th falls on a weekend or holiday, payment is due the business day before the 10th. An additional late charge of $20 will be applied if payment is not received by the 20th of the month. Non-payment or consistent late payments may result in the cancellation of enrollment.
Remember, no adjustments will be made to tuition due to weather related closings, building related closings or your child’s attendance.
Payments can be made by:
- Placing a check in the metal box marked “Tuition” located in the reception area of the Day School office,
- Paying online by going to www.lmpchurch.org. Click on “Preschool” under description,
- Mailing payments to: Lake Murray Presbyterian Church, Attn: Day School, 2721 Dutch Fork Road, Chapin, SC 29036.
*Please make checks payable to: LMPC Day School.
Please DO NOT leave your payment in your family folder or send payments in book bags.
Families whose enrollment is terminated due to nonpayment will lose priority status for their subsequent registration. Families with past due accounts with the Day School will be unable to attend registration or place a child on the waiting list for any session. To be eligible to participate in registration, all past due accounts must reflect a zero balance at least one week before the first day of registration.
Checks will be deposited only one time. If a check is returned, a charge of $20.00 will be applied to your account. If two checks are returned for non-sufficient funds during the school year, all future payments must be made by cashier’s check or money order. If a personal check is submitted for payment during this time, it will be returned to you and may result in an additional late charge to your account.
Tuition and/or Registration fees are non-refundable. A child is considered enrolled when registration fees are paid and required papers are completed turned in at the Day School office. If it becomes necessary for parents to withdraw their child, it is expected that the parents will give a 30 day written notice to the Director. If a 30 day notice is not given, the parents are responsible for one month’s tuition and any applicable late fees. Please note that your signature on the Registration Forms mean you are agreeing to all of LMPC Day School’s policy, including the Withdrawal Policy.
