Pricing and Payment
Pricing and Payment Policy
Effective May 1, 2013
*The youngest child is considered the 1st Child
How charges are calculated:
Charges are calculated in 15 minute increments. Times will be rounded up to the next quarter hour (i.e. 3 hours and 5 minutes will be considered 3.25 hours). There is a one hour minimum. The youngest child is considered the first child.
Full Time Program:
Full time is considered a minimum of 25 hours per week for a period of one month or more and includes lunch. The 25 hours can be averaged out over the month (i.e. 30 hours one week, 20 hours the next). The days and hours are flexible and can change from week to week. If your child is sick or you go on vacation, you do not pay for the time your child is not here.
Timing of payment:
It is Tick Tock’s policy that payment be made either at the time of service or as pre-paid blocks of hours. You can make arrangements to have us automatically charge your card when you run out of hours saving you time at check out.
Forms of payment:
Cash, checks and credit cards (Master Card and Visa) are accepted. A $20 fee will be charged for each returned check.
Pay as you go:
You can pay for each visit individually with payment due at the time of service.
Blocks of hours:
Blocks of hours can be purchased for convenience and savings. Blocks are pre-paid hours that can be purchased per family. Lunches and other additional charges can also be deducted from blocks of hours.
If you choose to purchase a block, Tick Tock will track your hours. When your account has $75 or less remaining we will provide you with a statement detailing the charges. Prompt payment is appreciated.
Blocks of hours do not expire provided the registration is kept current, including all required medical forms.
There will be no refunds on unused blocks of hours.
Full time payment:
Full time hours are the same as the Family Blocks. The rate you pay per hour is based on the Block purchased.
Past due accounts:
In order to get the discounted rate for a block of hours, the account must be up to date. If an account is more than $50 past due you will be charged the full hourly rate until payment has been made. Once payment has been made, the discounted rate will not be retroactive.
If an account is more than $200 past due, the family will be unable to participate in our program until payment or arrangement for payment has been made.
After 30 days, past due amounts will automatically be charged to your credit card.
