Payment Information

RATES JANUARY 2021-DECEMBER 2021

I only accept full-time care. Whether or not your child attends, you will still be charged the full-time rate. This helps pay for the monthly curriculum/supplies I buy for each child, and the groceries I have to purchase before the start of each week. Fees also help pay for rent, utilities, water, maintenance, and wear and tear caused by having lots of fun.

Full-time care​:  $150/week
