TUITION AND FEES INFORMATION

The Registration fee is per family/per year and is non-refundable.

 

Registration fees and tuition payments may be mailed or paid through the free online payment program after the initial registration.  After your initial registration is complete you will be sent an email where you can set up an online account to view your account statement and make monthly payments or set your account up for recurring monthly payments.  If you do not wish to utilize the online account, check or money orders can be made payable to the Jackson Board of Education and may be mailed to Jackson Child Care Academy, P.O. Box 739, Jackson NJ 08527.  When mailing payment, put the child’s first and last name and the child's attending school on the memo section of the check or money order. This ensures proper credit of the payment to your account.  Please use a pen with black or blue ink, no markers please.

(You may also utilize our drop box located at Howard C. Johnson Elementary School

Completed registrations and/or payments (in the form of check or money order) may be left in the drop box marked Community Services mounted on the outside brick wall located to the left of the front doors - please place in an envelope marked with the parent and child's full name and child's attending school).

Payments are not to be sent in with the children

Monthly charges are posted to your account on the 15th of the month prior to services being rendered. Payments are to be received in the Child Care office or paid thru your online account between the 15th and the 25th of the month prior to services being rendered.  (For example: October charges will be posted to your account on September 15th, the payment(s) for the October services is due between September 15th and September 25th). You will not be billed. 

 

Payments not received by the 25th of the month prior to services being rendered are subject to a late fee of $25.00.

 

Tuition is based on the number of scheduled school days (180) divided into ten (10) equal parts (average of 18 days per month). Therefore, the tuition for all ten months will be identical. (Please note that some months have 22 days and some have as few as 11 days, however the average for all months is 18 days for a total of 180. The monthly tuition remains the same for all months.)  There are no refunds or day exchanges for months containing holidays or school closure days (including delayed openings and/or early dismissals) or when a child is out due to illness.

 

​​You must notify the Child Care Office in writing of any changes to your child’s monthly services. Please include the first and last name of your child and the school they attend in the correspondence. Write to Jackson Child Care Academy, P.O. Box 739, Jackson, NJ 08527 or send an email to mshpak@jacksonsd.org

Parents are responsible for flexible spending account reimbursements. ​

 

CHANGE IN PROGRAM USAGE

  • Please notify the child care office in writing (email) by the 15th of the month prior to services being rendered or for cancellations for the upcoming month for any permanent changes to your child’s monthly child care schedule to take effect.

  • Changes must go through the child care office and not the school site. 

  • Account services will not be upgraded if there is a past due balance.
