Please refer to the online parent handbook and policy guide on the Art4Life website. Many billing, scheduling
and general programming questions are answered on our website.
Art4Life is a tuition-based, non-profit organization that issues billing statements at the start of each month. We
can accommodate schedule changes if we receive written notification in the form of a Change of Schedule
(COS) by the 10th day of the month prior to the next billing cycle.COS forms can be found at the parent board.
o To change a child’s monthly schedule permanently, parents must submit a COS form by the 10th day of
the month prior to the next billing cycle.
o To change a child’s monthly schedule temporarily for a particular month, parents must submit a COS
form by the 10th day of the month prior to the next billing cycle.
o To discontinue a child’s care, parents must submit a COS form by the tenth day of the month prior to the
next billing cycle.
Verbal notifications of schedule changes will not be honored. Any other circumstances will be treated on a
case-by-case basis if discussed in advance with the Executive Director.
