REGISTRATION FEES:

For new families just entering the program there is a non-refundable fee of $100.00 at the time of registration. This fee places your name on the waitlist and is considered on a first-come basis. Once you accept an offer of enrollment there is a one month deposit fee which will be credited toward last month tuition with a 30-day withdrawal notice. In addition, there is a yearly re-registration fee of $75.00 for the first child and $50.00 for each additional child and this fee is due on June 1st   in order to secure the space for the upcoming year.

ACTIVITIES AND MATERIAL FEES:
There is a non-refundable $225.00 activity and material fee per child which is payable twice a year; in March and September.

ABSENCES:
There is no reduction in tuition for absences/illness, holidays, inclement weather days or teacher training days. Part-time care is not offered as tuition is not prorated based on attendance.

SIBLING DISCOUNTS:
For families with two or more children, the oldest children will get a 5% discount on tuition. Full tuition is always required for the youngest child.

ADJUSTMENT FOR CLASSROOM CHANGES:
When a child transitions to a new room, the tuition rate is that of the “old” classroom. The tuition changes to that “new” room when the child begins his/her first full month in the new room.

A late fee will incur when children are picked up after 6:00pm. The charge is $20.00 per family for any time during the first 15 minutes. A $1.00 per minute will be charged thereafter.

A one-month notice must be given prior to withdrawing your child from the program. If a 30-day notice is not given, the deposit will not be credited to you.
