Tuition

 

Stepping Stones, Inc. is a nonprofit organization. Fees are set to cover monthly expenses for mortgage, utilities, payroll, toys, equipment and all other operating costs. Fees are figured on an average monthly basis and are the same each month. Because our costs do not vary with individual absences, we do not make individual adjustments in fees for time missed. Any savings to us for closing the center during holidays will be spread over the entire year to keep your fees as low as possible.

If fees have to be increased to meet expenses, you will be given at least one month’s notice. Fees as of January 1, 2020 are:
Infants $1,170 per month
Toddlers $1,005 per month
Preschool 1 $890 per month
Preschool 2 $865 per month
Part-time Preschool $385/month for 5 mornings/wk 8:15-11:30, $540/month for 5 days/wk 8:15-1:00, other schedules are also available
Before school (w/transportation) $150 per month
After school 1 & 2 (w/transportation) $355 per month
Summer Camp 1 & 2 (elementary age) $845 per month

Families who have two children enrolled full-time (Infant through Preschool 2 or Summer Camp) will receive a $50 a month fee discount. 

Those with three children enrolled full-time will receive a $75 discount. Full time care is 7am-6pm, 5 days/week.


Fees are due by the 10th of each month for that month. We encourage parents to have fees taken directly out of their checking account or you can pay your fees by check directly to the front desk. Parents whose fees have not been paid by the 10th of the month will be charged $10. If fees still haven't been paid by the 15th of the month, you will be charged an additional $15. If not paid by the 20th, your child will not be able to attend the center until fees are caught up or someone from the waiting list may be contacted to fill the spot. 

There is a $20 charge for all returned checks. We do not accept credit cards at this time.
