Tuition has been averaged over the year in equal monthly payments based on 50 weeks per year rather than 52 weeks.  This allows for 2 unpaid weeks per child per year while keeping monthly tuition amounts equal regardless of when the 2 weeks are used for vacation.  This is because our staffing and other operational expenses are arranged on the basis of fixed enrollment levels and must be met on a continuing basis.  Few if any operating costs are eliminated when a particular child is absent.  For the same reason, tuition is the same each month regardless of days missed due to illness or holidays.  It’s helpful to think of this as a yearly commitment to your child’s early care and education, and not in terms of days attended.

If a child enrolls or leaves at times other than the beginning or end of a month, tuition will be pro-rated. A $5 per day fee will be charged for late tuition beginning on the 5th of the month.
