preschool ripoff. vent.

***Edit.  The paperwork stated that there was a $38 processing fee that the company charges.  It didn't specify that it was a processing fee for each payment, but since many companies charge a small fee for online payments, I made assumptions.  Just called the school and it's a fee to set up the account. Not monthly.  Phew.  I am saved!

 

 

The preschool is saying that all of us with kids in the school MUST pay via this tuition management company that charges $38 FREAKING DOLLARS for processing.  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!  That's an additional $38 per month on top of tuition.  How can they make us do something that costs SO much?

I work to put my daughter in school.  I only take home about $175 a month after her tuition.  Now it'll be even less.  This irks me to no end.

$5 I understand.  But $38 every time you pay? What the helllll?!!!

I should just go back to staying home. This is ridiculous.

 Sorry, that's really crummy.  I'd go ahead and pull her.

lol neeeevermind.  The paperwork they sent me simply stated "take note of the $38 processing fee ____ company charges."  Which to me sounds like a fee that you'd pay each time buuuut apparently I was wrong.  I just called the school and it's a fee for setting up the account.

 

Phew!

You don't HAVE to pay it.  You can find another preschool.

 Yeah in NC they are charging 60$ a month for prek.  Even if it's in the school.  They are trying to get it waived though.  Because a lot of families can't afford it.
