8.      SCHOOL-AGE FAMILIES: Tuition for before/after or afterschool only includes all teacher work days, early dismissals, delayed openings, and up to 5 inclement weather days per school year.  All children enrolled in the school-age programs (except before school only) will be charged $35 per day beginning on the 6th day unless you opt for your child to not attend any inclement weather closings.  In this case, families should notify administration at the beginning of the school year.  Before school only families pay daily rates for inclement weather days ($35/full day) when space permits attendance. A track down fee of $5 will be billed to families when a parent/guardian does not notify RR that their child will not be attending the afterschool program on a particular day.

9.      JADE and VIOLET ROOM FAMILIES: Monthly tuition will be pro-rated only in August/September and May/June with the start and end dates of the program.  When Rainbow Riders closes for planned days, tuition is not pro-rated.   Additionally, families will be reimbursed on the 6th day Montgomery County Public Schools close due to inclement weather determined by Montgomery County Public Schools. Credits are given on children’s accounts in April once the winter weather season has concluded.

10.  REGISTRATION FEES: Registration fees are due annually and are non-refundable.  Each Spring, families will be required to register for the Summer and Fall Programs.  The registration fees for infants through preschoolers are $25.00 for the Summer Program and $50.00 for the Fall Program.  For our school-age programs, Summer Camp registration fee is $50.00 and before and/or after school is $25.00. 

11.  LATE PICK UP: A late fee of $1/minute will be billed to the child’s account when not picked up by 5:45 PM.
