NEED Program Plan Information

  • Using the Gold Plan requires a set schedule of the same day(s) of the week.  However, you may select different combinations such as, five mornings and two afternoons, as long as they are the same day of the week.   

  • Tuition for the Gold Plan is based on the number of scheduled school days (180 days) for the school year divided into ten equal monthly payments.

  • Tuition payments are due on the 15th of the preceding month.  (For example: October’s payment is due September 15th.)  All cash payments should be made directly to the NEED office during operating hours.  Payments received after the 20th of the month are charged a $20.00 late family payment fee. 

  • One program change (per school year) will be made free of charge with five (5) school days written notice to the NEED office. (ie. 4 afternoon to 3 afternoons; 2 mornings to 4 mornings, stopping the plan, etc.)  Additional program changes also require five (5) school days written notice and will incur a $10.00 service charge.  All program changes must be done in writing through the NEED office.   

  • Extra days may be added with five (5) school days advanced notice at the Blue Plan rate.  Less than five (5) school days notice would require In-A-Pinch rates.

  • Please notify the NEED office if you wish to discontinue use of the program.  Two weeks written notice to the NEED office is required and will be effective on the 1st or 15th of the month only.

  • There are no credits, refunds or adjustments for time not used in the NEED program due to school closings or delayed openings, vacations, absences or illnesses, other school activities, etc.  The only exception to this policy would be in the case of an extended illness, whereby the student has missed ten (10) or more consecutive days of school, all of which must be substantiated by a physician's written note, a credit will be applied to your account.

  • A discount will be given to families with multiple children living in the same household that are registering in the NEED program.  A discount of 15% will be given off of the oldest child’s tuition for families of 3 or more, 10% will be given off of the oldest child’s tuition for families with 2 children.

  • Students receiving free and reduced lunch receive a 15% family discount upon verification.

  • No additional charges are incurred for early dismissal days that occur on your Gold PM day of schedule.  (Ie. Your child is on the Gold PM Plan, Monday – Wednesday.  Early dismissals costs are included in your monthly rates for those days only.)  Additional early dismissal days can be added (for those not using the 5 day a week plan) at the Blue Plan early dismissal rate if five (5) school days written notice is received.  Less than five (5) school days written notice would be charged In-A-Pinch rates.  (In the above example, that would include early dismissal days that occur on Thursday and Friday).

  • Late fees, change fees, returned check fees, In-A-Pinch rates, etc. are not subject to discounts. 

  • Children whose tuition is paid for by DYFS/CHS or other state/county agencies do not receive any discounts.

  • For any month that a child will not be using the Blue Plan for an entire month, the NEED office should be notified by the 15th of the preceding month.  A parent can still use the program using the In-a-Pinch rates for that month. 

  • Additional dates that are needed after the schedule is submitted will incur a $5.00 family schedule fee charge per change (not per day added), per family. However, five (5) school days notice is required to be charged the standard Blue plan rate.  If less that five (5) school days are given, in-a-pinch rates will apply.

  • There are no credits, refunds or adjustments for time not used in the NEED program due to school closings or delayed openings, vacations, absences or illnesses, etc.  The only exception to this policy would be in the case of an extended illness, whereby the student has missed ten (10) or more consecutive days of school, all of which must be substantiated by a physician's written note, a credit will be applied to your account.

  • Enrollment in the Blue Plan requires a monthly calendar to be completed showing your child’s days of attendance for both the am and pm for the month.  The monthly calendars are provided by the NEED office and are available on the website.  The calendars need to be returned to the NEED office by the 15th of the preceding month.
