If your child comes before 9 AM and/or stays past 3 PM you will pay the hourly rate of $5.00 per hour. Please keep track of how many hours you use each month. You will pay at the beginning of the following month for the hours used the previous month.

Tuition is divided into 10-12 equal payments and is paid each month September 1st - Aug. 1st.  The cost is the same per month no matter how many school days or holidays are in that month. Tuition is due on the 1st of the month and must be paid by the 10th of the month in order to avoid a late charge of $25.00.

If your child wants to stay for lunch (12:00 - 1:00) on an occasional basis, it would be necessary to make prior arrangements with Elaine. There is $12.00 fee for this service.

There are childcare discounts available for faculty, administration, and staff of California Lutheran University. It is necessary to fill out the necessary paperwork and have it approved by Human Resources. There is also a discount for families enrolling two or more children in the center.
