Infant Program

The Infant program will accept babies 3 months of age – 18/24 months of age.  This is a 5 day, full-time program and will cost $2,008.00 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.

Early Care & After Care Option

If your child comes before 9 AM and 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.   

Lunch Bunch for Sunflowers and Shooting Stars

The Lunch Bunch option is available for children in the Sunflower and Shooting Star classrooms only. This extra 1-hour includes time to eat lunch with friends and free play in the Outdoor Classroom until 1:00 PM.  The cost is $10 per day.  Please note that children who stay after lunch bunch will be going into a rest time, which requires lunch bunchers to be picked up promptly at 1:00 PM.  Please talk with the Director about enrollment in this option, as there is limited space.             


When children are ready to transition from the Infant Program into the Toddler Program, they may enroll on a part-time basis.  Transitions from the Infant program into the Toddler Program and from the Toddler Program into the Preschool Program may occur throughout the year typically at the beginning of the summer and fall programs.


We request that all families use our online, contactless payment system to make tuition payments.  However, 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.  Tuition cards will be emailed 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 is due each month no matter how many days your child does not attend due to illness, vacation or absence.        

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