Infant Program

The Infant program will accept babies 3 months of age – 24 months of age.  This is a 5 day, full-time program and will cost $1,912.00 per month.  Once the child is transitioned into the Toddler Program, he/she may come on a part-time basis. Transitions from the infant program into the Toddler Program, from the Toddler Program into the Preschool Program, occur several times of the year: at the beginning of the summer program, the beginning of the fall program, and other times on a contingent basis.

Flat Rate Option

This is a new tuition option. Choosing the flat rate option includes the program hours of 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM plus morning care from 7:30 AM – 9:00 AM and afternoon care from 3:00 PM – 5:30 PM.  The flat rate tuition is due each month no matter how many days your child does not attend due to illness, vacation or absence.      

Early Care & After Care Option

If your child comes before 9 AM and/or stays past 3 PM, you can calculate your tuition cost and pay for the extended hours using the hourly rate of $5.00.  Please state on your registration form the hours you need your child to attend and use the hourly rate for the extended hours.  Our goal is to create consistent cohorts with each group of children. Identifying your extra hours in advance helps us to staff appropriately for each classroom.


All families will need to use our online, contactless payment system to make tuition payments.  If you need to pay by check, please mail your payment to Fredrickson Family Early Childhood Center, 60 West Olsen Rd, #7400, Thousand Oaks, CA 91360.  Your tuition card will be emailed to you with your child’s schedule and tuition amount.

Tuition remains due on the first of each month.  You have until the 10th of each month to pay the tuition. There will be a late fee of $25.00 for any tuition received after the 10th of the month unless prior arrangements are made with the director.  California Lutheran University includes a 30-day provision to increase the tuition.

Tuition is the same per month no matter how many school days are in that month. Holidays and closure dates are already accounted for in the school tuition. 

Tuition during the months of July and August is paid on a weekly basis.  See the separate Summer School Registration form for more details.


There are Center discounts available for faculty, administration, and staff of California Lutheran University. It is necessary to fill out the appropriate paperwork and have it approved by Human Resources.
