Hello, Thanks for choosing Justanswer.com! I look forward to helping you with legal information today.
I love your already tried section. That is the best one I have ever read.
You said the kids don't get there until 4 or after. Is this because the program changed the times on you?
Because school has now run later?
Okay, thanks. You said you paid on August 16th. Had school started by that time and did you know that they would not be in the aftercare program for as long at that point?
Okay, very good. In that case, they breached the contract and you should be entitled to a partial refund from here on out if you pull your kids out of the program. It does not matter that you paid late because they waived any right to contest that issue when they accepted payment. So that part is moot in the legal sense.
That being said, there may be an issue here since this is a private school and they basically have a right to refuse service to anyone as long as it's not for an illegal reason like discrimination. So...if you cause a stink, they may tell you after this year that your kids cannot come back. I just want you to be aware of this issue. They may refuse to pay you back for the aftercare program and if you want to pursue it, you would have to take them to small claims. Here in FL, you can sue for up to $5K, so you wouldn't need an attorney if you have to go that far.
Thanks :) We love our customers too!
