A non-refundable registration fee of $40 per family is due at the time of application. Registration does not guarantee enrollment. Annual registration is required.
Tuition is an annual rate divided into nine monthly installments. The amount of the payment due each month is the same, regardless of the number of days of school or attendance, except for August and May, which are half of the standard monthly payment. Holidays and other scheduled school days off are not included in the calculation of the annual rate. There will be no credits or refunds for calamity days or absences. A space will be reserved Monday through Friday for full-time participants. For part-time participants, only those two or three days of the week specified at the time of enrollment will be reserved.

Care After School is a qualified Ohio Afterschool Child Enrichment (ACE) Educational Savings Program service provider. The ACE Educational Savings Account program is available to any student between the ages of 6 and 18 years old whose family income is at or below 300% of the federal poverty level ($83,250 annual income for a family of four). If eligible, you can use ACE credits to pay for Care After School.
Late Payment Fee
Tuition payments are due the first of each month September through May. A late fee of $25 will be assessed for any payment that is not received by 6 PM on the last school day of that week (usually a Friday). If payment is not received by the last day of the 2nd week after the tuition due date your child(ren) will be suspended for one week, or until payment is made. If the account is not paid in full during the week of the suspension, your child(ren)'s enrollment will be discontinued. Reinstatement is available only if space is available in the program, the account is paid in full, an additional $40 registration fee is paid, and the family is enrolled in auto-pay for all future payments. Excessive late payments may result in discontinued enrollment.
Late Pickup Fee
The CAS program ends at 6:00 PM, and we ask that all children be picked up by that time. Since staff have evening responsibilities and are not expected to remain after 6:00 PM, a fee of $10 will be assessed for each five (5) minutes after 6:00 PM a parent is late (e.g., 6:06 arrival will result in a $20 fee). If a child has not been picked up by 6:30 PM and attempts to contact parents and emergency contacts have been unsuccessful, the police and Franklin County Children's Services may be called. CAS reserves the right to terminate enrollment for recurrent late pick-up. The late pick-up fee will also be assessed beginning one hour after the time a parent is contacted to pick up a child for any reason including illness, behavior, etc. Excessive late pick-ups may result in discontinued enrollment.
Non Sufficient Funds Fee
A fee of $30 will be assessed for each non-sufficient funds notification. The amount of the payment plus the $30 fee must be paid by within a week of notification. Multiple non-sufficient funds occurrences may result in withdrawal from the program. The non-sufficient funds fee will also be assessed if your account number changes and you have not updated your auto-pay in the parent portal. Families are responsible to maintain current account information in the parent portal.
As a safety precaution, CAS will trace any child who is absent on a day he or she is scheduled to attend unless we have been informed of the absence. The trace procedure includes contacting parents and emergency contacts, and possibly calling the police. Parents are asked to notify CAS of their child's absences by advising a staff member, emailing the CAS site, or leaving a message on the site's voice mail prior to 2:00 PM. Because of the seriousness of involving police and because implementing the trace procedure takes a staff member away from the group for a period of time, a fee of $10 is assessed for any unnecessary trace (i.e., parents were aware of the absence, but did not inform CAS). Excessive unnecessary traces may result in discontinued enrollment.
AM Drop-In Fee
For families already enrolled in CAS, drop-in care is available at our before school programs. Please give 24 hours notice for the mornings you would like your child to attend. The AM drop-in service is $10 per child per day and is due at the next billing cycle.
PM Drop-In Fee
A limited number of drop-in spaces may be available for students who are enrolled part-time in after school programs. Call or email your CAS site to check availability. Please give 24 hours notice for the afternoons you would like your child to attend. The PM drop-in service is $15 per child per day and is due at the next billing cycle.
Prior to the start of a new school year, if you find that you no longer need the services of Care After School, the CAS Administrative Office must be notified in writing by July 25 in order to have your first tuition payment refunded. No refunds will be made for withdrawal from the program after July 25.
Beginning in August, your CAS Site Director or the CAS Administrative Office must be notified in writing by the 15th of the month to withdraw from the program for the following month. If notice of withdrawal is not given by the 15th of the month, half the next monthly payment is required.
Enrollment Status Changes
Your CAS Site Director or the CAS Administrative Office must be notified in writing by the 15th of the month to change your child’s days of attendance effective the following month. No refunds are made for tuition paid.
