The following paragraphs address some of the most often asked questions that families have related to Naʻau's monthly tuition plan for our Year-Round students:

Most of our families take advantage of Naʻau's monthly tuition plan. We ask that parents help us to identify a day and time that would be most convenient for the family. When other activities, illnesses, vacations, or holidays conflict with the usual time your child comes to Naʻau, we understand. Just let us know ahead of time and we will reschedule your child's learning to another date; however, the monthly tuition you have committed to remains the same -- it does not get adjusted. Please help us to make-up any missed classes within the month if possible.

With prior notice (at least 2 weeks recommended), the monthly tuition plan also allows you to 'break' enrollment (with no tuition payment) for a month (30-days) in a 12-month period (we will save your child's seat). You may also divide the month's break into two, 2-week breaks for half of the monthly tuition. If you decide to take a break for more than a month, you may be asked to reapply to Naʻau with application fee and your child's seat with us may not be guaranteed. If there are any extenuating reasons (an imperative crisis in the `ohana) that we may consider regarding an extended leave of absence, please do not hesitate to let us know. We will always be collaborative, kind, and fair.

Monthly tuition payment is due sometime within each month. If you wish to pay every two weeks, that may be arranged.

With the monthly tuition plan, there is no further obligation to Naʻau after the month of learning is completed. You may end your relationship with us at anytime.

An annual tuition option (12 months) is also available. Please let us know if you are interested. The annual tuition plan can save you one month of tuition, but commits you to a year of study with us. The annual tuition plan still allows families to take an enrollment "break" as needed. We will save your child's seat. However, the make-up hours must be completed within the 12-month period, please, and should not extend beyond that. The tuition for the annual option is also due all at one time (initial application fee is waived for new students, a savings of $75.00)--we are sorry that we cannot consider tuition payment installment plans at this time. Optionally, Naʻau offers a tuition refund plan, which provides insurance for financial losses incurred during the academic year. The premium is $50.00 and is payable with the annual tuition payment.

Methods of Payment: 

Naʻau offers several options and methods to pay your tuition bill. We prefer tuition payments by check (payable to Naʻau LLC); your canceled check is your receipt. We also accept American Express®, Discover®,MasterCard®, and Visa® via Square®. You may visit our center with your favorite charge card to pay your bill. If you do, please consider bringing the invoice that we emailed you--that will help us to serve you better. You may also request or receive an email invoice to pay your tuition online using your favorite charge card. If you wish to have recurring payments set-up, that is possible as well. It is also possible, but not preferable unless you reside outside of Oʻahu, that you call our center at (808) 548-6228 to charge your card by phone. If you wish to use PayPal®, please add an additional 4% handling charge to your transaction and send your payment to our email yamanakanaau@gmail.com. Cash payments are also welcomed. Mahalo!
