We offer self-selected, tiered fees for all of our programs. The middle fee listed is the standard we need to average in order to run successful programs. The lower fee is offered for families who could use some assistance, or would like to select a multiple child discount. The higher fee is for families who would like to assist us in keeping our programs accessible to all families regardless of financial means.
