Affiliation Fees:

Affiliation fees are to be paid in-full at the time of enrollment. Affiliation fees support your child’s education as follows: Approximately 50% of the fee goes  to your child’s class teacher to spend on the year’s class supplies and any necessary classroom furnishings. In the case of the parent/toddler and kindergarten classes, some of this money will be allotted to the food budget. The other approximately 50% is divided up between the purchase/maintenance of equipment for the school and administrative expenses (insurance, housekeeping supplies, mentoring for our staff). These fees are reevaluated each year and are subject to change from one year to the next.

For the 2022-23 school year:

Parent/Child- $100 deposit due at enrollment. Applied toward toward tuition
Kindergarten, Grades, Enrichment- Minimum 50% deposit at time of enrollment. Remaining 50% due May 1st
