Students having a great time at Stepping Stone Sachse

You must select a FULL TIME or PART TIME (drop in) schedule when you are enrolled.

FULL TIME rates are lower (per day) than PART TIME rates, but they are due each week, whether your child attends or is absent.  If you are enrolled as FULL TIME and are going to be out for an extended period of time, you MUST let us know at least ONE WEEK before being gone for us to suspend tuition.  Your space will be available when you return if no one has taken it.  We cannot hold spaces.

If you want to change from WEEKLY billing to DAILY billing or from DAILY billing to WEEKLY billing, you must contact our office a week before you wish the change to take effect.
