Full year members (After School & Summer Camp families also receive one complimentary week in the summer and on complimentary week at Christmas as well as discounted daily pricing for full days during school year.

Financial PolicyWeekly tuition is calculated as an average rate with all 1/2 days and holidays taken into account for the full year and summer.  This results in a base weekly tuition amount that does not change, regardless of days open or closed during school year and summer.  One week during Christmas and one week during summer is granted to full year families complimentary with no charge.  Half days are no additional charge during school year. Therefore your tuition will remain the same weekly throughout the school year and summer.

Full days (during school year) are an additional $20 for after school members and $40 for non-school year members.  See Spring Break pricing for details regarding.
