Snacks (morning and afternoon) are provided for all children except for infants. Parents are required to bring for infants their own food, formula, or breast milk.
Children must bring their lunch from home as this is not provided.
Tuition is based on the individual class that a child is assigned, not the actual age of the child.
A 5% sibling discount applies to the older child(ren).
Children generally transition to the next class under the following conditions:
Note: Rates are set annually but are subject to change with at least a 30-day notice.
- The child is age appropriate. Licensing requires that children not be placed in the next level until
they have reached the correct age.
- Space is available in the room. If a child is age ready, but space is not yet available, the child’s
teachers will provide age-appropriate learning opportunities. All our staff are very
knowledgeable about the developmental needs of the children in the various stages of early
childhood education. A Montessori program is designed to meet a variety of developmental
needs within each classroom environment.
- The child is developmentally ready as well as age appropriate. In the event the child is not
developmentally ready, they remain in their current classroom until the proper development
A one-time non refundable fee of $100.00 per child to be paid to place a child in our waitlist. The anticipated enrollment is established at this time. If the space becomes available for a child, the waitlist fee is then considered a registration fee. If space is unavailable for the requested start date, the fee remains nonrefundable.
A refundable security deposit of $200.00 is due one month prior to the first day of attendance. The security deposit ensures the enrollment space for the scheduled first day of enrollment and 30 days
beyond the start date. After that time, if the child does not take the space, the space and security deposit are forfeited and the process for admission along with fees must be restarted. The security
deposit is only refunded if written notice of withdrawal is given one month in advance (starting with the first day of the month) and there are no outstanding balances.
Semi-Annual Activity & Materials Fee
A nonrefundable semi-annual activity and materials fee of $100.00 per child is due at the time of enrollment (prorated) and then on each January 1 and July 1 to help offset classroom only expenses such as Montessori materials, furniture, playground equipment, supplies, and special activities such as artists-in-residence programs.
Tuition Payments & Late Fees
Tuition payments must be received on or before the first day of each month. A 5% late fee will be charged to all payments made after the first day of the month. Tuition payments that are three or more
calendar days overdue will be sufficient reason for immediate termination of the child from the center program. Any deposit fees will be applied to the delinquent fee and will be deemed non refundable.
A sibling discount of 5% will be applied to the older child(ren) tuition rate.
Referral Tuition Credits
Parents who refer other families, who subsequently enroll and are fully paid for at least two months, will receive a $200.00 tuition credit for each referral.
Absences due to Vacations, Holidays, Inclement Weather, Emergency Closures & Illness
As the operational expenses of the center do not decrease due to any individual child’s absences, the child’s classroom enrollment is maintained if tuition payments are current. Tuition is paid at the set monthly rate for all children enrolled on a full-time basis with no deductions for illness, vacation, inclement weather, emergency closing, or holidays.
Final Month Tuition
After written notice of withdrawal has been given one full month in advance (starting at the first day of
each month) the final month’s tuition must be paid in full. Final month tuition will not be prorated based
on days in attendance.
