For full-time families, a 10% sibling discount will be given when the second child is enrolled at the Center, with the discount applied to the lowest weekly tuition rate.

There will be NO subtraction of costs for days missed due to illness or personal business. This cannot be done since the child’s place is saved and the Center and the overhead cost of the staff and facilities remain the same. If the child is absent, time cannot be exchanged for additional time on another day.
