Scheduling Your Child

VVCC has two options for scheduling your child:
1. The first is a Set Schedule contract, which is a block of time that remains the same throughout the month and the school year. Add together your blocks of time for your monthly tuition.

Priority Registration will be given to full-time families with Set Schedules: These families will not be charged for Teacher in Service Days, School Breaks, or School Closure Days.

➢ 1st-5th Grade: 7 AM – 4:30 PM / 6 PM
➢ TK/K: 8 AM – 4:30 PM / 6 PM

2. The second option is a daily Drop-In – see below details.

SCHEDULED DROp-IN

You must call us before (or on) the day that you will need our services. For day-of drop-ins, we must receive your call before 2 PM (MTTHF) / 1 PM (W), otherwise it will be considered an Unscheduled Drop-In. Space permitting, the Scheduled Drop-In rate is $11/hour. There is a one-hour minimum and fees charged to the half-hour. All drop-in families need a checking account on file with us.

UNSCHEDULED DROp-IN

If we did not receive a call, or we received your call after 2 PM (MTTHF) / 1 PM (W), it is considered an Unscheduled Drop-In. The rate for Unscheduled Drop-Ins is $15/hour with a minimum of one hour.

MORNING DROp-IN

The fee for morning drop-in is a flat $12. Parents must accompany their children inside the building and sign them in using the computers.

Annual Registration Fee

There is a $150 family non-refundable registration fee. Registration for current families must be paid by 6 PM on the last Friday in May (for the following school year), or the rate will increase to $200

Full Month tuition

When you sign up your child with VVCC you are agreeing to pay full month tuition from August through May.

TUITION

Tuition is due the first of the month for that month. A late fee of 10% is accessed on the 11th day of the month. If tuition is not paid in full by the last business day of the month, an additional 10% fee will be added. Please note: There is no tuition reduction given for illness, holidays or outside activities.

Method of Payment

Each family is required to have a Tuition Express form on file. This allows us to automatically deduct tuition. You may also make your own payments online to meet your budget needs. Cash or checks are also permitted. Checks are made out to VVCC.

Returned Payments

All returned payments from your bank will result in a $30 fee.

Sibling Discounts
