Parents are responsible for tuition while the child is officially enrolled in Global Children's Center whether or not the child has been in attendance. Tuition charges are based on contracted attendance, rather than actual attendance. No tuition credit is given for absences resulting from vacation, illness, acts of nature, or any other circumstance outside of Global's control (including but not limited to inclement weather, power outage, etc.). Non-payment of tuition is grounds for termination or suspension of services.
Payments will be processed using the backup payment method on file according to the withdrawal schedule provided.
Credit card payments reflect a 3% processing fee. This fee cannot be waived.
You are required to have a payment method on file.
If you prefer to pay via check or online, payment must be made before the due date or the payment method on file will be charged.
If payments are not received by the given date, you will be subject to additional fees (late payment, decline fees). See below for the payment schedule.
We understand that emergencies may come up and some families require occasional drop-in care for their children. If you require drop-in care, your child will need to be fully registered with Global. You will need all the required forms from the Maryland State Department of Education and Global Children's Center on file. Parents must also notify Global Children's Center at least 24 hours in advance so we can ensure availability and proper staffing. Your tuition payment for drop-in care is due that same day of care.
(Ex. if your child attends a drop-in session in the morning and afternoon on the same day, the total amount due for that day would be $55.00.)
(Full-Time Care: Registered for both 5 Days AM Care and 5 Days PM Care)
If you are not registered for FULL-TIME CARE, you will be subjected to the drop-in policy.
Global Children's Center provides a wide array of options for parents to choose from in order to accommodate their preferred payment methods. Please note the Tuition Payment Form is required for all enrolled families regardless of your primary payment method.
Our primary payment method is our fast and secure online payment portal using your Procare login.
In addition, we also accept tuition payments in the form of checks and money orders made payable to Global Children's Center or GCC. Checks and money orders must be mailed to our central office address, located at Global Children's Center 12417 Deoudes Rd Boyds, MD 20841-9022. Please remember that no payments will be accepted on-site at our locations!
Payments can also be processed over the phone by our tuition team, you may make a payment by calling our main office (301)-972-5982.
Lastly, we offer an Automatic Withdrawal option, which allows us to automatically deduct tuition from your preferred payment method provided from the required Tuition Payment Form.
Payments will be processed using the backup payment method on file according to the withdrawal schedule provided below. Please note some payment periods are based on 5 weeks, not 4.
In order to change the schedule at Global, it is imperative that the parent fill out a change of schedule form found on our website and notify the tuition department and your Global Director in writing with at least two weeks' written notice prior to the change. Please be aware that the main office must approve all schedule changes before they can take effect. Click on the button below to fill out the schedule change form and the tuition department will contact you to confirm.
Procedure to Withdraw
If a parent would need to withdraw their child from the program, we require a two-week written notice. Once we receive this notification, the tuition deposit paid for during the time of registration will be applied to the last two weeks. If no notice is given, parents will still be responsible for payment of tuition charges until notice is given.
The tuition deposit will cover the last two weeks of care and is non-refundable.
(*A withdrawn email MUST be sent or you must fill out the Withdraw request form below. We do not accept word-of-mouth notices. If an email is not sent, the tuition deposit will be forfeited.)
If the tuition deposit was not paid for or you did not provide the required two weeks’ notice, you will be financially responsible for the last two weeks of care and your tuition deposit will be forfeited.
Please be advised that we are a contract-based program, not an attendance-based program. You will be financially responsible for the contracted schedule regardless of whether or not your child attends Global on their scheduled days.
