Extra Hours

If your child comes before 9:00 am and/or stays past 3:00 pm you will pay the hourly rate of $5.00 per hour if your child comes 2 or 3 days a week; and $4.00 per hour if your child comes 4 or 5 days a week. Please keep track of how many hours you use each month. You will pay at the beginning of the following month for the hours used the previous month.

Tuition Payments

Tuition is divided into 10-12 equal payments and is paid each month September 1st - Aug. 1st.  The cost is the same per month no matter how many school days or holidays are in that month. Tuition is due on the 1st of the month and must be paid by the 10th of the month in order to avoid a late charge of $25.00.


Should your preschool child want to stay for lunch (12:00-1:00 pm) on an occasional basis, the fee is $12 and it is necessary to make prior arrangements with Elaine. This is NOT an option for children enrolled in the Toddler program.
