Tuition Policy

Tuition Payment

All TCC Families are required to enroll in automatic drafts from a checking/savings account or credit card (Visa or Mastercard only; 4 percent fee) via our Tuition Express program.  In order to facilitate payments for parents, we have set a monthly fee schedule over the nine-month period. Tuition may also be paid in full at the beginning of the year. No refunds or adjustments are made for illness, school holidays, teacher workdays, inclement weather/snow days, family vacations, etc.


Tuition payments are non-refundable and non-transferable, except in a situation where the family is relocating out of the city of Charlotte. March, April and May tuition prepayment is always NON-REFUNDABLE for TK/Fives. May tuition prepayment is always NON-REFUNDABLE for all ages. If it becomes necessary to withdraw a child from the program during the school year for any reason, families must give a 30 day written notice of date of withdrawal to the Director.

In the event of an unforeseen school closure, the March, April and May tuition prepayment will remain NON-REFUNDABLE for Transitional Kindergarten (Fives) and the May tuition prepayment will remain NON-REFUNDABLE for all other ages. Any further refunds will be determined at the time of closure by the preschool director, TCC Board and church administration depending on the circumstances, timing and length of such event.

Delinquent Payments

Payments received after the 5th of the month are considered delinquent. Delinquent accounts will not be carried beyond 30 days, unless previous arrangements have been made with the preschool office. A late fee of $25 will be charged to accounts that have not been received or postmarked by the end of the school day (1:00 p.m. on the 5th of each month.)

Returned Checks

A service charge of $25 will be charged for any returned checks.

Financial Assistance

Limited funding for financial assistance is available for students who qualify on the basis of need. An application must be submitted to the Director to be reviewed by The Children’s Circle Financial Assistance Committee for consideration.
