Each student will receive an invoice either by e-mail or in hard copy form.  Payments are made either weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly depending on which is preferred by family.  You will be billed at your weekly rate regardless of your child’s attendance.  Please make checks payable to “Bright Beginnings”, with A.C.E. written in the memo section and deposit  in the yellow payment box located near the coat racks. If the payment box is not located there, please check in the office.  All payments are due by the end of the month for the current month.  Payments not made by the agreed upon time will be subject to a $10 late fee.  Please keep your account current. 


Each student will be assessed the weekly rate for all weeks A.C.E. is in session, regardless of attendance, with the following exceptions:

  • Illness: If your child misses an entire week of A.C.E. due to extended illness, we offer that week at 1/2 off your current rate.  Please let the accountant know if you need to use this.  This may only be used once during the school year
  • Vacation: If your child will not be attending A.C.E. during the school year due to a vacation, we offer one week of A.C.E. not billed at your current rate.  This must be used only on a week when your child will not be present.           


For “no school” days such as snow days and holidays, there is an additional fee of $10 per child per day attending Kindergarten Exploration and Stepping Stones and $20 per child per day not enrolled in the preschool.
