Fees 2020-2021

Parent members pay all tuition fees on a monthly basis. A non-refundable deposit equal to one month tuition is required at the time of signing a contract. It will be applied towards the August tuition. (Due to COVID-19, we currently have a month-to-month contract.)

  • Infants – 3 to 11 months
  • Infant/Toddler – 12 to 23 months
  • Toddler/Preschool – 18 to 33 months
  • Preschool – 33 months to 5 years
    (Ages as of September 1; however, due to rolling admissions this year, classroom assignment will be based on the age at admission.)

 

Note: All fees are subject to change. While all fees are typically updated in early February for the following September, fees for 2021-2022 will remain the same as this year.
