Accounting Charges:  It has always been Academy 4 Kids policy to charge $25 for any additional documents asked for beyond the receipts you receive for payments.  This charge has not be used very often, however, this was the first year that we had many, many, many families that needed us to fill out child care expense forms and provide statements to their accountants.  From here on out, the $25 charge will be applied for anything you need beyond a normal receipt.
