MAP TUITION POLICY (updated 10/2023)
By enrolling my child in MAP, I agree to the following tuition policy:
- MAP establishes a daily fee for each program (Jump Start through 6th grade) based on the cost to care for each child.
- This daily fee is multiplied by your child’s schedule, and families are billed monthly, in advance.
- MAP offers a 5% sibling discount for the lesser tuition.
- A two-week deposit is required at MAP sign up. Tuition deposits will be held in escrow until you leave the program and then refunded to you provided your account is paid in full.\
- Refundable tuition deposits left unclaimed for 90 days after withdrawing or ending care, will be considered a donation.
- All tuition is due in advance of services being rendered.
- Tuition is due regardless of your child’s absence from the program due to illness, holidays, vacations, etc.
- Tuition statements are emailed on the 15th of the month. Payment is due no later than the first of each month. (For example, the first bill of the year will go out on August 15 and payment is due to MAP on or before September 1).
- If you prefer to receive printed statements, need a receipt or other documentation please email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Tuition payments can be made by personal check, via your bank’s online bill pay, by money order, or debited directly from your bank account via and electronic bank to bank payment called ACH (Automatic Clearing House). Cash will not be accepted. Payments are made to the Medfield Afterschool Program or “MAP.” Please include your child’s name on your payment. Tuition payments can be dropped off at your child’s program, placed in MAP’s locked drop box located outside the 2-3 MAP building behind the Wheelock School, or mailed to: MAP, P.O. Box 18, Medfield, MA 02052. ACH payments will be drawn from participating families’ accounts in batches, starting on the 1st of the month and may occur within the first 5 business days of the month.
Late Payment Fees and Program Exclusion:
- Payments that have not been received within 7 business days of the first of the month will result in a late fee of $25.00 being charged to your account.
- In the event a tuition check is returned by the bank to MAP, a fee of $25.00 will be assessed to your account.
- MAP may discontinue services if payment is not received for the past due amount within 20 business days of when the payment was due. Nonpayment of tuition will result in your child being removed from our enrollment, and the loss of your two-week tuition deposit.
- Overdue accounts may be referred to a collection’s agency after 30 days unless other arrangements have been made with the Executive Director. Families are responsible for all account balances, plus reasonable collection and attorney fees associated with the collection of the account.
- In order to not jeopardize your child’s enrollment for non-payment of tuition, families must contact the Executive Director to create a written payment plan. Payment plans must outline a new payment structure that includes the outstanding balance and ongoing tuition. The amount due weekly must be equal to the current tuition and a portion of the outstanding balance. Families will be given up to 8 weeks to pay the overdue balance amount. Failure to maintain the payment plan will result in an automatic suspension of your child’s enrollment. Families will forfeit their refundable two- week tuition deposit for non-payment of tuition and still be responsible for the past due amounts.
- MAP reserves the right to end enrollment and/or refuse future MAP enrollment due to non-payment of tuition.
- Once the tuition balance is paid in full the child/children may be re-enrolled, dependent upon space availability.
- If paying your tuition becomes a hardship, please contact the Executive Director, as they may be able to provide you with resources for financial assistance.
- Tuition will be charged for holidays and non-school days that fall within the academic year.
- Jump Start families are not billed for teacher professional days, conference days or non-school days as the Jump Start program is not open/offered on those days.
- MAP does not charge extra tuition for coverage on early release days or conference days that are part of your child’s normal schedule.
- MAP does not include or bill tuition for the school vacation weeks (December, February or April).
- If there is a non-school day that MAP elects to open, extra tuition may be due (not available for Jump Start).
- For extra days and the February or April Vacation weeks, additional tuition is due with sign up.
- In the event of school closings (ex. snow days), additional days will be added at the end of the school year. MAP will bill you for any additional days, per your child/children’s schedule. Families are responsible for paying for the additional days regardless of whether or not your child attends MAP. Failure to pay for these additional days will jeopardize your child’s enrollment for the following year.
- If electing to withdraw your child from MAP prior to the beginning of the school year, MAP will adhere to the following tuition deposit guidelines: 100% refundable if MAP is notified in writing (email accepted) by June 15, 75% refundable if notified in writing by July 15, 50% refundable if we are notified in writing by August 15, Non-refundable after August 15 and families are responsible for their first tuition installment in full.
- Schedule changes, for example dropping days, for the upcoming school year, must be made in writing (email accepted) to the Executive Director by August 14.
- MAP will not make schedule changes between August 15 and September 14.
- After September 15, and during the school year, MAP requires a two-week advance written notice (email accepted) to make schedule changes (add days based on space availability, drop days, withdraw from special sign up days or withdraw from the program). Families may email the Executive Director or their Program Director.
- Families may begin notifying MAP in writing on 9/1 of any schedule changes to start after September 14.
- Tuition will be adjusted accordingly as of the effective date of the change.
Late Pick up Fees:
- Late pick up fees will be billed separately and are payable upon receipt of invoice.
- The late pick up fee is $1.00 a minute after the applicable program designated pick-up time (12:15, 2:30, 4:30, or 6:00 p.m.).
- We do not want to charge you this late fee; we want you to arrive on time! Please notify us whenever possible if you are going to be late so we may inform your child.
