The Early Childhood School at B’nai Shalom of Olney relies on the timely collection of tuition payments for the school to run smoothly. Our annual tuition is an annual sum divided into 10 equal payments for children attending the school year and is a commitment to the ECS. B’nai Shalom of Olney requires all ECS families to be on automatic payments either through ACH or credit card by the first of the month. Unfortunately, we cannot offer the flexibility to offer a refund to any schedule changes due to staffing and MSDE regulations.
ACH (Automated Clearing House) – ECS tuition payments will be automatically withdrawn from your designated bank account.
Credit Card – Arrangements can be made to automatically charge your credit card monthly. A 2.5% service charge will be charged, as well.
Withdrawals – After your child’s first day of school at the ECS, a sixty (60) day notice must be submitted in writing if withdrawing during the school year. The first installment will then be credited to the final month of enrollment. If the family fails to inform the office with a sixty-day notice, the Early Childhood School has the right to hold the prepayment and not refund the family.
Payment Plan – ECS families have the option to pay the annual tuition in one full payment made in September, two equal payments made in September/January, or 10 equal installments made throughout the year (default). Parents who have not requested to select a separate payment plan will automatically be defaulted to the 10 equal installments starting August 1st.
