Tuition Rates

2018-2019 School Year

Begins July 2, 2018

Registration Fee is $100.00 per child for the program beginning in the fall of 2018. This fee is due when the registration papers are submitted.

Infant Program

The Infant program will accept infants 3 months of age to 18 months of age. This is a 5 day, full-time program and will cost $1,634.00 per month. Once the child is transitioned into the Toddler Room, he/she may come on a part-time basis.

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 equal payments and is paid each month September 1st - June 30th. 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.  Tuition during the months of July and August is paid on a weekly basis.


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


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.
