Program Details

Our primary program is our preschool, serving children ages 18 months through 5 years old. We have four classrooms with overlapping age-ranges in the mornings; as the day progresses the age groups join together for more mixed-age activities.


  • Our school-year runs for ten months, from early September through late June, offering 185 days of service per year.
  • We offer part day (12:30), full day (3:00), and extended day (6:00) schedules five days a week.
  • The school-day begins at 8:15am. We plan to reintroduce early arrival at 8:00am in fall 2022, if COVID protections allow.

Payment and Fees

At the time of enrollment, families secure your child’s spot with a security deposit of $400, and a first month’s tuition payment. After that, tuition is paid monthly, due the first day of the month prior to the month of care. Tuition payments are made through Brightwheel; we also accept check and cash.
