    How Billing Works

    • The Edina Family Center accepts payments by American Express, Visa, Master Card or Discover credit/debit cards.
    • Upon acceptance of your Early Childhood Family Education, Preschool, All Day Pre-Kindergarten, Extended Learning or weekly parenting class registration, your credit card on file will be charged one month’s fee. This will be applied towards your first month’s tuition. All other parenting classes (book studies, single-topic discussions and those that meet monthly) will be charged the full amount.
    • Once classes begin, your card on file will be charged on the first day of each month for the next month’s tuition. For example, on Sept. 1, 2020, you will be charged for October tuition.
    • Sibling Care fees (if requested) will be added to your monthly Early Childhood Family Education, (ECFE), year-long weekly parenting and/or preschool class payment.
    • All non-ECFE classes will receive monthly invoices approximately 3 business days prior to credit cards being charged.
    • A late payment fee of $20 per month will be assessed on all declined credit/debit card and bank account transactions.
    • Late pick-up fee is $1.00 per minute after class has ended.
    • In order to ensure an equitable process, a lottery will be used for classes without a parenting component (classes beginning in 0003, 0045, All Day PreK and Extended Learning). Priority is given to Edina Public School residents.

    Financial Assistance

    Tuition for Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE/with a parenting component) classes is charged on a sliding fee scale based on family household income. Various prices appear at registration. For classes without a parenting component, financial aid is available for qualifying families. Please contact our Outreach Manager at (952) 848-3985 for more information.
