Program Fees and Payment Policy
Our school fees are based on a yearly fee divided by 12 months.
The Nest Early Learning Center Fees and Payment Policies

Owls Drop In Days:
We are pleased to offer drop in days for enrolled children only. To request a day, email us with the day you would like, no more than a week prior to the drop in day, and up to 24 hrs before the class starts. Once we receive your request we will confirm if it is available or not. Drop ins will be added to your portal billing. Pricing:
$90/day for Owls
For other Club, Pro-D Day, and Camp Fees please refer to each program
Please note, school fees are charged per calendar month and are due one month in advance on the first of every month. For example, your September invoice will be issued the 3rd week of July, and due by August 1.
Please note that if you choose to reduce your days for ski school or bike school, your space on those days will be awarded to the next person on the waiting list and they are not held for you to return to at the end of the season. We recommend weekend club for ski programs, but understand that it is your families choice and preference, we just want you to know in advance of our policies.
When you wish to un-enrol, we must receive one month written notice prior to the first of the month before your last month. If we do not receive one month written notice, you will forfeit your fees and are not eligible for any returns.
Owls: Please note that our fees are yearly, divided into monthly payments. You are NOT charged for Statutory holidays (please don’t worry for m-w-f or full time families, the stat holidays are not factored into the fee calculations) In December, we are closed for 2 weeks, and in September before labour day we have Professional Development days. These days are accrued throughout the school year because we charge based on 20 workdays/month and there are 20.9 (excluding stat holidays) workdays per month. Each month we have an early dismissal day at the end of the month where we transform the environment and get prepared for our upcoming theme. Pickup is oat 12:45 on those days. We do our best to evenly distribute them. We have 2 parent teacher conference days/year in which the school is closed and one teacher collaboration day at the end of June. These closures were in lieu of a 3% fee increase for the 2022/2023 school year.
