Return Policy

NMA will process credit card refunds in the following circumstances:

  • The wrong amount was processed on the credit card (ex. $500 instead of $50).

  • A refund exists on the student account due to a credit transaction and a request is made to have the credit card refunded.

  • The intended credit card was not utilized, thus the incorrect card will be refunded and the new one charged.

  • Other situations may arise; in these instances, the decision to process a refund will be made by the Directress of NMA. In certain situations receipts and/or other documentation may be requested by NMA.

Payment policy

Navarre Montessori Academy enrollment requires a one-time deposit fee and annual non-refundable deposit fee and a $350 deposit payment. It goes toward the last school payment.

All fees as well as the deposit payment are non-refundable unless Navarre Montessori Academy receives a written notice of withdrawal on or before July 31, 2021. With written notice of withdrawal on or before July 31, 2021 your deposit payments will be refunded.

A $30.00 late fee is assessed if payment is not received by the 30th of each month or if a payment discrepancy is not resolved by the 5th of the month.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and Debit cards. A 3.5% (three-point two percent) convenience fee will be added to the amount being charged. 

Monthly tuition statements will be emailed to parents based on the email addresses provided on the application. Please be sure to provide an accurate and legible email address for both parents. 

Tuition is not subject to proration for any reason and this includes but is not limited to illness, holidays, emergency closings or leaving the country for an extended period of time during the school year, family emergencies, or state and federal mandated state of emergencies. Monthly tuition payments will not be pro-rated for withdrawals from enrollment before the end of a calendar month.

Thirty-day written notice is required for withdrawal of your child from enrollment in Navarre Montessori Academy. This written notice of withdrawal must be received by Navarre Montessori Academy by the end of the calendar month preceding your child’s last calendar month of enrollment. 

Navarre Montessori Academy will deem all written notices of withdrawal to take effect at the end of the next calendar month after Navarre Montessori Academy’s receipt of the written notice. Written notices of withdrawal that request withdrawal at a later date than the end of the next calendar month after Navarre Montessori Academy receives the written notice of withdrawal will not affect such a withdrawal and instead will affect a withdrawal that will take effect at the end of the next calendar month after Navarre Montessori Academy’s receipt of the written notice. For example, a written notice of withdrawal received on October 5, no matter whether the written notice requests withdrawal at the end of November or at the end of a later month, will affect a withdrawal as of November 30, and your child’s last day of enrollment will be on November 30. Please note that tuition is due for the entire school year, regardless of your child’s withdrawal.

Tuition is due for the entire school year, regardless of your child’s absence, withdrawal, suspension, or expulsion. The Montessori classroom is prepared to accommodate your child and his/her space is reserved. We cannot give credit for missed days due to vacation or illness.

CONTRACT TERMINATION POLICY
Your financial commitment to the school is an annual commitment in which you agree to pay the FULL TUITION whether or not your child is able to attend the entire year. These commitments cannot be undone if he/she does not attend or withdraw during the school year. Once you sign and return your contract and pay the application fee and registration fee, the school saves space for your child. Therefore, the school cannot afford to forgo payment of full tuition except as follows: If the school is notified IN WRITING before June 1st, this agreement may be canceled without penalty (except for forfeiture of the application and registration fees).

If you withdraw your child from enrollment in Navarre Montessori Academy for any reason, Navarre Montessori Academy does not guarantee that your child will be permitted to re-enroll.

Requests for any change in a child’s program, for instance, a change from the full-day program to the half-day program, must be submitted to Navarre Montessori Academy in writing, and any such change will only become effective on the 1st of the calendar month that starts 30 days or more after Navarre Montessori Academy receives such written request. However, Navarre Montessori Academy reserves the right to deny such requests for any change in program or to delay the effective date, in its sole discretion, of any change in the program.

Written notices must specify the last day of school your child is attending. Verbal notice of withdrawal, and verbal requests for changes in the program, are not accepted in any circumstance. You are responsible to ensure that Navarre Montessori Academy has received your written notice in a timely manner. If Navarre Montessori Academy has not received a written notice, as it may determine in its sole discretion that written notice will not be effective.

Navarre Montessori Academy reserves the right for un-enrollment of any child without prior notice if, in the sole opinion of Navarre Montessori Academy, it is in the best interest of the child or Navarre Montessori Academy.

If legal action is required to enforce this agreement, you agree to pay all costs and attorney’s fees associated with such collection. Venue and jurisdiction shall be in the Circuit Court for Santa Rosa County, Florida, and the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall be controlled by Florida law.
