At My Little Planet Learning Center and Preschool in Kennewick, Washington, we strive to provide your child with quality early education. Please read our guidelines on this page to learn more about our programs and policies. You can also download and read our center’s parent handbook for more information.
In order for us to provide quality care for your child, we depend on you to pay your fees in a timely manner. The following guidelines will promote effective payment and collection of those funds. Please read this policy carefully and be sure to ask if you have a question, or if you wonder which fees apply to you.
The tuition that you pay goes directly into our payroll fund so that we can hire qualified early childhood educators who work directly with your child. Your tuition and adherence to these guidelines also ensure your child’s space in our program.

Please observe the following policies carefully:
Families are allowed two weeks’ vacation per calendar year that ensures we hold space for the child’s return. Vacation will only be granted if taken a week at a time, not a day here and there. Families also have the option of taking the entire summer off, if arrangements are made in advance. Vacation requests must be in writing and given to the director two weeks in advance.
If you do not pick up your child by 6:00 PM, or pick up after 10 hours, you will be charged a late fee of $2 per minute.
A $25 late fee will be charged every 16th of the month if payments are not made by then.
A $50 fee will be charged once a month if an account is left delinquent until sent to collections.
We do not drive the children on field trips. All field trips are done using public transportation or parent volunteers. Parents must fill out a volunteer application, pass a background check, and show a clean driving record before they will be allowed to transport students.
