School Year Program

Participant applications for the 2022-2023 School Year Program are now CLOSED.

Fee for Programs:

Our School Year fees are based on rates given to us by our government funding sources (BHDS, SAM, CMU). They are determined by the staff to child ratio need for your child to best be successful during the program. You will receive an email with rate and ratio after your application has been submitted and reviewed.
