  • Each month’s full tuition is due on the 1st of each month.  If tuition is paid by ACH, the tuition will be split into two withdrawals –  one on the 1st and a second on the 15th of each month.  If tuition is paid by check, the full month’s tuition is due in the school office on the 1st of each month.

  • Rates are based on the specific program your child is attending, not their age.

  • Rates include formula, cereal, and jar food for children under one, and two snacks and one meal for children one and older.

  • A 15% discount will apply to the tuition of the older child when two or more children from the same family are enrolled at The Learning Gardens (not applicable to School-Age).
