Policy Statement

1. PAYMENTS

  • All fees must be paid by cash or cheque. (debit or credit card cannot be accepted at this time)
  • Tuition fees are due on or up to a week after the invoice is sent via email. A penalty fee of 5% will be charged every 30 days after an invoice is sent to the client and is not paid.
  • There will be a $25.00 fee for N.S.F. cheques.

2. ATTENDANCE

To see the best results, it is important to make the utmost effort to attend all scheduled sessions. However, it is to be expected that unavoidable circumstances may arise on occasion. If a scheduled session cannot be made, please review the following guidelines.

  • Scheduled sessions cannot be cancelled.
  • In the case of a missed session, a make-up session can be scheduled with the addition of a $20 fee.
  • If a rescheduled session is missed, parents will still be charged the $20.00 fee and will not have a third opportunity to reschedule for the original session.
  • Rescheduled sessions must be made within 30 days following the missed session and with the original instructor.
  • In the case of withdrawing a child, two-weeks notice must be submitted in written form.

3. PARENTS AND TEACHERS

A positive relationship between parents/guardians and teachers is an important aspect of monitoring a child's educational development. Regular discussion and collaboration regarding a child's progress is strongly encouraged and, because of this, the following guidelines are set.

  • Parents are expected to drop off and pick up child on time. The waiting area will not be supervised, as teachers will most likely be in session with other children.
  • If parents wish to inquire about their child's progress, it is best to do so during child's allotted time. If there are urgent questions and concerns, e-mailing administration will allow for a more thorough discussion.
  • Teachers are expected to be punctual and professional.

4. INITIAL/ONGOING ASSESSMENT

  • To ensure consistent communication between parents and teachers, progress reports will be sent home after every 20 hours of tutoring in a particular subject area.
  • After every 40 hours of tutoring time in a particular subject area, children who are enrolled in a individualized program will be reassessed using the CAT3 (There will be no additional fees for this assessment, as it will fall under scheduled tutoring time). This will give parents a clear understanding regarding their child's progress. A re-assessment report will be sent home to summarize the results.
