Payment Options

Tuition may be paid in full or by installment. You must provide bank account or credit card information for program fees and any additional charges, including but not limited to late pick up fees, late payment fees, drop in fees, material fees and administrative fees.

* Payment in full

* If you pay in full at the time of registration, you would be entitled to a 5% discount.

* Installments

* Installments are the total tuition due prorated over a 10 month period. Each installment is an equal amount and does not reflect the number of program days in a given month.

* The first installment is due upon registration and each subsequent installment payment will be automatically charged on the 5th, or closest business day, of each month for the next period. The final installment will be charged on May 5th, 2018.

This tuition includes home work help, a 40 minute arts enrichment class and child care until 5:45 pm each day.  One way transportation from local schools can be arranged privately by families for an additional fee per week per student.

There is a one-time non-refundable registration fee of $50 per family for registration any time during the 2017-2018 school year, due in full at the time of registration and not included in the installment payments.  All tuition and fees must be paid in full by May 5, 2018.

It is important to remember that each installment is a payment on the total tuition for the year, paid over time.  It is not a monthly charge for days of childcare.  The installment payment is the same whether there are 15 or 22 childcare days in the month.

Our goal is to serve the children of our community and make our program affordable to all families, so please contact us if you would like to make extended payment arrangements, or if you have other needs.  We would love to have your child in our program and we welcome the chance to work with you.  Serious Fun accepts the child care vouchers from the City of New York.  If you qualify for public assistance through New York City’s Job Centers, you may be eligible for free childcare while you look for work or enroll in a job training program.  Read the attached flyer The City of New York May Pay for Your Child Care and call 311 to ask about applying at your local Job Center.
