Drop-in afternoon (12:00-3:00) sessions are $50/day when not part of a student’s regular program.
If you would like your child to stay for an unscheduled afternoon on a particular day, or if you would like to add an unscheduled Lunch Bunch, requests are submitted through an online Schedule Change Request Form, or by contacting the office.
For Children’s House Programs, tuition, less deposit, may be paid in one of the following ways:
- One payment – Tuition is discounted $100 per family if received by June 1, 2022.
- Two payments – June 1, 2022, and October 1, 2022.
- Ten monthly payments via Smart Tuition – June 1, 2022, thru March 1, 2023.
For the Infant Program, tuition will be billed monthly. A deposit equal to two months of tuition will be required at enrollment, and monthly payments will begin in the month prior to your infant’s start date. The deposit will be credited to the last two months that your child is in the infant program.
ALL payments will be processed through Smart Tuition. Information regarding payment plans or Smart Tuition is available through the office.
In light of the many changes we’ve had to put in place due to COVID-19, we are not in a position to offer financial aid for the 2022-2023 school year.
