ELC Tuition and Fees
The Center provides a year-round private education including certified care, a Christian environment, and highly trained staff. As a private, unsubsized program, the Center does not provide bussing or food at this time.
The Center's tuition is $834 per month for full-time care, which is about $4 an hour. There are discounts for families enrolling more than one child and for Saints Peter and Paul Lutheran Church members. Full-time enrollment may be suspended (or added) during the summer. If full-time spots fill up during a suspension, the families will be given the opportunity to return to full time prior to losing their spots. All changes to enrollment will require 2 weeks to take effect.
The Center is now offering part time services for those who do not need full-day or every-day care. Anyone not needing the full 10 hours per day may elect to pay the part-time rate for the hours their child attends. An hourly rate of $5 will apply, and a minimum enrollment of 20 hours per week is required. What does this look like, in practice? A family electing to enroll for 3 full days (10 hours per day) would pay the same as a family enrolling all 5 days for 6 hours a piece, since each would be paying for 30 hours total. The schedule must be agreed to ahead of time, and remian consistent for staffing purposes. If a child misses a scheduled day, the rates still apply. Please contact the Director (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more details.
Tution is due every Monday, prior to attendance. Parents may elect to pay weekly or monthly. If tuition is paid late without contacting the director first, a late fee may be applied. Regular late pick up will also result in a late fee. Tuition may be paid at the front office or online. Full details given upon enrollment.
Families interested in financial aid should write a letter regarding need and submit it to the director for review. The director will schedule a follow-up interview to submit evidence of financial need. All aid is contingent on available funds.
