RATES SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE
PLEASE OBTAIN CURRENT RATES AT THE CENTER
We are pleased to present to you what we believe is the most flexible scheduling package available in our community. As parents we know that children do not always accommodate a fixed schedule due to illness, family visits, holidays or otherwise. Our goal is to present a package that is workable for you as the parent but meets the needs of our business, enabling us to schedule our staff appropriately.

REGISTRATION
The registration fee is $80 per year payable in two installments of $40 each. The first is due at time of enrollment and $40 is then due ongoingly on January and June 1st. This pays for your child’s insurance and is non-refundable. If you register in December or May you will not be billed the following month’s registration fee.
