Application Fee
A $40 non-refundable fee is required with each application.  This fee may be waived for families applying for financial aid by contacting the Director by phone (301-320-4565) or in person.  When two or more children from the same family apply at the same time, one fee is charged.

Waiting List Fee
A $15 non-refundable fee is required with each waiting list form.  When a child applying by waiting list form is accepted for enrollment, the balance of the $40 application fee is charged.

Enrollment Deposits
Upon acceptance, a deposit equal to one month’s tuition is due with the registration card.  This tuition deposit is applied to your child’s tuition for the final four-week billing period of the academic year.  The tuition deposit must be submitted by the date noted in the child’s acceptance letter.

Financial Aid Assessment
A fee of $50 per child, per year, is billed to each family at the start of the school year.  This fee, along with any fundraising income, supports the Center’s financial aid program.

Activity Fee Assessment
Our preschool activities challenge children to be creative and set the stage for life-long learning.  Appropriate activities can build self-esteem and enthusiasm.  To continue providing these activities, including but not limited to music, creative movement and field trips, an annual activity fee of $200 per child is assessed.  This assessment is billed at the start of the school year.



Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /home/clara4/public_html/scripts/ on line 3
