Please note:

  • Apply early! Families often wait at least 6-12 months for a space in our program. You can apply before your child is born and many families do.

  • We only serve children age 12 months - 36 months and we do not accept children after they are 2 years old.

  • Tuition is based on a sliding fee scale. To find out fees for a particular schedule, please provide your gross income and family size, and then email the Program Director to see where you would fall on our scale.

  • We only offer three fixed programs, all full days. Full time M-F, Part Time M/W/F, and Part Time T/Th.
