A Word From Our Director
It's hard to believe that our Fall Semester is soon coming to a close! Our teachers and children are working hard and looking forward to our upcoming Christmas Program on Tuesday, Dec. 6 at 7pm! The Kangaroo, Giraffe, Raccoon, and Owl classes will be participating in this program but all Training Depot families are invited to attend!
We are seeing a need to remind parents of the Training Depot policies regarding tuition payments. Copied below are the policies for tuition and fees at Training Depot which each parent received in your Parent Handbook upon enrollment.
Here are some quick tip reminders:
*Tuition is due EACH Friday for the upcoming week!
*Mondays are a grace period day. If tuition for that week is not paid in full by Monday at 6pm, a late fee of $25 will be applied to your account.
This will be enforced more efficiently beginning this coming Tuesday, Nov. 22.
*Tuition must be paid for each week in advance! It cannot be paid AFTER your child has attended for the week.
*ALL Abeka fees should have been paid by the end of September. If you have not paid your Abeka fee in full by this coming Monday, Nov. 21, you will receive a $25 late fee.
If you have any questions, the tuition policies and procedures from the Training Depot Parent Handbook are copied below. We greatly appreciate your cooperation in making sure that your child’s tuition is paid each Friday before the upcoming week!

Tuition and Fees
An enrollment fee in the amount of $75 is due at the time of enrollment. The enrollment fee is nonrefundable.
Weekly tuition fees are due and payable in advance on Friday for the upcoming week. Tuition checks may not be postdated. If tuition is not received by 6pm on Monday, a $25 late fee will be added to your account the following Tuesday. The Training Depot accepts payment via the following methods: cash, check, or credit card. Tuition rates are subject to change as needed.
For each insufficient check returned there will be a $25.00 service charge. If two checks are returned as having insufficient funds, payment will have to be made by cash, money order, or credit card.
A deposit of one week’s tuition is due before a child may attend. The deposit will be reimbursed once a child is withdrawn from the center or applied to the child’s last week of tuition if your account is current and a two-week withdrawal notice is turned into our office staff.
The Abeka Curriculum fee of $95 is due annually for all Two year olds – Pre K children. For children ages 18 months – 24 months, the Abeka Curriculum fee of $55 is due annually. This covers the curriculum workbooks and educational material that is used throughout the school year. The curriculum fee is nonrefundable.
*Fundraisers: A HUGE THANKS to all of you for your support during our Fall Fundraiser! Congratulations to our TOP 3 SELLERS: Preston Langley, Everett & Gwen Miller, and Jett & Tripp Jaime! Thanks so much to these families and each of you for supporting Training Depot!
Each week I like to let you know what we learned in this week's chapel as well as sharing with you the bible verse that your child is learning for this week and next week. Each classroom has 'BLUE' tickets for bible verse memory. Children can earn a red ticket for behavior as well as a blue ticket for memorizing their bible verse each week. When they earn a blue ticket, they will have the opportunity at pick up time to stop by my office and share their bible memory with me as well as choose a prize! This is a great way to help them hide God's word in their hearts at a young age! See your child's teacher or one of our office staff if you have any questions.
Last week the Owl class led chapel. They taught us the story of salvation using a pumpkin. When we give our lives to Jesus, He cleans the 'ick' from our lives and puts His light of love inside of us. This week the Raccoon class led chapel. They taught us the history of the 1st Thanksgiving and each child shared what they are thankful for! Our next 2 chapels will be practice for our Christmas Program.
On December 13, our Giraffe class will lead chapel.
