Enrollment:

Once you have received a Summer Contract, you will have 7-10 days to make a decision. If you are not ready to commit at that time, we understand. You will be placed on our Wait List and, provided we are not full when you contact us with a final decision, may be given another contract to finalize.

Our deadline for all enrollment applications is Friday, June 1, but enrollment is limited so we recommend early application.

Tuition:

We have tiered tuition options based on the amount of time your child will be with us, with significant discounts for Full Summer Program enrollment by March 15th. We also have extended day options (if your child needs to stay with us an extra hour), as well as the option to request for week-by-week enrollment (based on available space). 

See the Application Form for details on tuition and options.
