No Hidden Costs
Parent fees cover all expenses for your child in the program including supervision, breakfast, snacks, crafts, games and special events. When enrolling your child in a PLASP program, you will be required to pay the following:
Administrative fee: All families are required to pay a non-refundable administrative fee of $54.10 per family.
Deposit: To reserve space for September, parents are required to pay a non-refundable deposit. This applies to both full-time and part-time space. This deposit will be applied to the program fees in September. This requirement will apply to all parents in all school boards unless relevant municipal or school board requirements dictate otherwise.
Fees: Fees are set based on a full school year. to keep administrative costs down, payments for fees are made through pre-authorized payments, directly from your bank account, for children registered in full-time programs (Before School, Lunch, After School and P.A. Days). Fees are prorated; parents are not charged for March Break, Christmas holidays and school holidays.
At PLASP, we are committed to working with you to develop payment arrangements suitable to meet your needs. Should you need assistance with your fee payments, please call the Accounting Department at the PLASP Head Office at 905-890-1711. Please note: An administrative fee will be charged for any payments that are returned with insufficient funds.
Cancellations: Should your circumstances change and you no longer require our services, you must notify the PLASP Head Office at 905-890-1711, one week (5 business days), prior to your pre-authorized payment date.
To ensure cost effective programs and reasonable fees, it is essential that parents give us the required notification to allow adequate time to process your request. Upon cancelling at the Head Office you will receive a cancellation reference number. Please see the PLASP fee payment calendars for cancellation and payment dates throughout the year.
Refunds: A refund of 50% of your full‐time fees for each day absent will be issued if your child is absent for 10 consecutive days due to hospitalization or illness. A written request for the refund and a doctor’s
certificate will be required by PLASP prior to the provision of the refund.
