Tuition and

Admissions/Application Process

 

The Maple Hill Play Garden works on a sliding scale rate based on the honor system. Please choose your own sliding scale rate – any amount between the prices given.

Tuition includes wholesome, hot, organic lunches and snacks.

 

Preference will be given to full time applicants.

We are working to balance paying our educators a fair wage and program costs with the counterbalance of accessibility. The success of small, home-based family child care programs depends upon the generosity of full-paying families.

Full Days (8:30 – 3:30)

4 days:   $12,500 - $15,600

3 days:   $9,900 - $12,300

2 days    $7,000 - $9,600

Half Days (8:30 – 12:15)

4 days:    $9,200 - $11,700

Admissions/Application Process

1. Please email Amanda at NourishingChildhood@gmail.com to request and fill out an application. There will be a $25 application fee.

2. We will schedule a 45 minute interview - generally within two weeks of receiving the application. This is a chance for us to sit and get to know a bit about each other;  for you to visit the space; for your child and I to meet; for you to hear more about the program and ask any questions you may have.

3. I will let you know by mid-March if we will have space for your child. You will then have one week to reply, either way.

 

4. Your signed contract - along with your 10% non-refundable enrollment deposit and supply fee - must be returned within two weeks of acceptance in order to hold your place. The balance of your tuition will be divided up equally between the months of July 1st - May 1st.
