Payment Policy

Preschool Tuition: Tuition is invoiced in total for the school year. You may choose to pay your tuition in full, or via nine monthly installments over the course of the school year. The first installment is due September 1. You may pay your account balance in full at any time. Statements will be emailed monthly indicating the status of your account.

Late Payment Fees: Your monthly payment is due on the first day of each month (regardless of holiday, or weekend). If we have not received payment by the 7th you will be charged a late payment fee of $35. Checks are to be made payable to Grandwood Park Park District.

Late Payment & Fines Policy: If you anticipate financial problems, please notify the Park District Manager before the seventh of the month.

Late Payments (not discussed with Park District Manager in advance):

  • $35 late payment fee will be added if tuition is paid after the 7th of the month.
  • When a family is 30 days late paying tuition, the child will not be able to attend class until payment is made in full.
  • Once tuition is 45 days delinquent, the child will not be able to attend class and will forfeit his/her spot in school.

NSF: A fee of $20 will be assessed if your payment is returned to us from the bank due to insufficient funds in the issuing account. If that occurs, we will NOT redeposit the NSF check. You will be required to make that payment in cash. If 2 or more payments are returned as NSF, you will be required to make the reminder of your payments in cash or money order.
