Tuition is due by the 1st of each month. Late payments will be subject to a 15% late payment fee. LadyBug Academy uses the Brightwheel management system to make it easier for our families to manage their tuition payments. Brightwheel provides each family with a secure portal where they can view their account, manage payments, and update their personal or contact information at any time. The system also allows parents to sign up for automatic payments and reminder emails, making tuition payment faster and more convenient.
Waitlist forms are accessible on our website or can be obtained by visiting us at one of our locations. A non-refundable application fee of $50 must be submitted with each application. Payments are accepted via our site, via check made out to "Ladybug Academy" or via PayPal sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. All wait-listed families must complete a wait-list form and submit the non-refundable $50 application fee to be able to get a space at our center, if a space becomes available. The wait-list is first-come first -served, and your position is determined by the date of application.
