*Note: Enrollment periods designated “Optional Enrollment” are not included in the annual contract period(s). There are designated time periods of application for enrollment for each optional enrollment period. Applications submitted after the deadline will be placed on a waiting list for possible availability and are subject to a $25 late fee. Each Optional Care Period is a separate week of tuition. If you do not register your child, you are not charged, but your child CANNOT attend. If you register your child, you will be charged for each corresponding week you select. Tuition is based on optional care reserved, not on actual attendance for those weeks.
