Tuition is due on the 1st of each month (unless you are paying with recurring ACH Debits to break each
month into 2 payments). A late fee of $25 will be charged if tuition is not paid by the 5th of the month.
If tuition is not paid by the 20th of the month, child will not be permitted to attend the following month until all
tuition and fees have been received. Children’s Cottage reserves the right to terminate enrollment should an
account not be paid in full by the end of each month. The easiest way to pay tuition is with monthly recurring
ACH Debits. All we need is a voided check to set it up! You can always pay your tuition 24 hours-a-day at
