How does our tuition compare?

Our school year runs until early to mid June, not May. Our tuition covers a longer school year.

Our morning and full day program hours give you a better value for your tuition. The longer period of time in the morning (about 5 hours) allows us to accomplish a lot before we eat lunch. We do not need to add additional costs because we already have a nice, long morning.

Our full day program is from 7:30 - 3:30 pm. Our Extra Innings runs from 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm.

Our staff/child ratios are small.

In addition to our Teachers having 4 year degrees in Early Childhood Education or Elementary Education, most of our Assistant Teachers have four year degrees and an education background.
