Confirmation of Placement

A deposit in the amount equal to your monthly tuition rate, the non-refundable supply fee, and an up-to-date immunization certificate are due after you receive a confirmation letter. To secure your 2021-2022 registration, deposit will be due by February 18. No portion of the deposit is refundable, even if you decide not to attend the Early Preschool. The tuition portion of the deposit will be applied to your first tuition payment.

If your child needs to leave the program for any reason, we require a written notice at least 30 days in advance of the child’s last day of school to stop tuition autopay through Brightwheel.

Families will pay tuition on a monthly basis, through Brightwheel Autopay. Monthly Autopay tuition payments begin on your second month of attendance.


Extended Care (Before and After Care)

Below you will see our pre-COVID Extended Care offerings. We cannot guarantee what Extended Care will look like in the 2021-2022 School Year, please make sure your needs are known when registering. As soon as we know what Extended Care we are able to offer, we will send out a notification and/or registration to registered families.

To guarantee space for your child in before or after care, they must be registered by the August Parent Meeting. Extended care hours begin the Tuesday after Labor Day.

Before-Care is offered from 8:00-9:00 A.M. Monday-Friday mornings.

After-Care is offered from 2:30-3:30 P.M. Monday-Thursday afternoons. (No After-Care on Fridays.)

Tuition for Extended Care is $40 per session; We calculate your monthly Extended Care tuition based on the number of sessions you need per week.  For examples, see below:

  • preschooler riding tricycleEx. 1: Before Care on Monday Only
    (1) Session per week = $40/month
  • Ex. 2: Before Care & After Care on Tues/Thurs
    (4) Sessions per week = $160/month
  • Ex. 3: Before Care on MWF & After Care on MW
    (remember, no After Care on Fridays!)
    (5) Sessions per week = $200/month

Extended Care tuition will begin September 1st.

If your child needs to drop Extended Care for any reason, we must receive a written notice at least 30 days in advance of the child’s last day to remove Extended-Care from your Brightwheel autopay.

Occasional Extended Care is available as space allows for $20/session. You will be invoiced and payment is due when reservation is made.

Inquiries for availability must be made at least 24 hours in advance.
