Early Childhood Education/Keeping tuition on time with families


As an early childhood educator, what do you feel is the best way to communicate with families on paying tuition on time if they have a history of being late?

Thank you for your questions. If you have allowed this problem to continue for too long, you have established a pattern of problematic behavior. At this point you have a choice to make: You can send them a letter explaining your policies regarding financial tuition and stating you will expel the child if they do not hold to your policies or you can set up a scholarship fund for exactly this purpose. I would suggest in the future not allowing this situation to continue on as long as you already have. Keeping strict financial policy is crucial for any school to survive. I applaud your efforts and wish you the greatest of educational success.
