If schedule you need is different from given in the time table, (for example: 16hrs or 37hrs /week) please contact us for the monthly fee. The monthly fee is a flat fee and will reflect 52 weeks a year divided by 12 months. In order to reduce your category or change the hours Sunflower must be notified one month in advance in written form.

You can change your category once a month and one category down only. (For example, you cannot switch category A to C at once. You will need to switch your category from A to B the first month, and from category B to C next month, and so on) You will be billed monthly.

If you bring or pick up your child at time beyond your schedule you will be charged extra, 1.5 of your hourly rate. Extra hours/extra day: 1.5 hourly rate. Invoices are due on the 29th of every month for the following month.

Extra hours for the month will be added to your following month invoice.(For example:The extra hours for May will be added to July’s invoice) Late payment fee of $25 will be added to the next invoice. In case of a bounced check there will be $25 fee. After two bounced checks your payment will be accepted in cash only. PROMPT PAYMENT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED! One-month deposit (cash only) and first month tuition fee are required upon enrollment. Tuition fee is non-refundable. Deposit with two-months written notice will be applied to your last month payment. Your deposit is forfeited with less than two-months notice

Transition: Sunflower will schedule 2 transitional weeks before child starts his/her regular schedule. Transitional fee is 1.5 hourly rate. As we request first month payment upon the registration , you will receive the prorated bill on the third month of care.( For example:If the first month in day care was in September, pro- rated fee will be for the month of November.)

The fee remains the same regardless of absences, holidays or vacation.

During pandemic/quarantine, when/if Sunflower will not be able to operate, Sunflower Policy will be frozen, which means your contract cannot be changed/adjusted until Sunflower reopens and children returns to daycare.

The first week (5 business days) of a such event you will be charged 100% of your monthly fee. After first week and until Sunflower is back to operation you will be charged 25% of your fee to cover part of business monthly expenses. These fees are not refundable. If during pandemic/quarantine parents do not pay 25% fee, we will consider it as contract termination. In this case you lose the deposit. If for some personal reasons, after service was resumed, and you postpone child’s attendance, administration must be notified in written form. During the absence, 50% of tuition fee will be charged each month.
