Admissions The admissions process begins with a scheduled tour of our school. Prospective families will receive an information packet including our brochure. We encourage you to bring your child to the scheduled visit to allow your child to experience the entire school environment. We also encourage you to ask as many questions as you feel necessary to decide if our program is right for your family.
Please call our Center at (617) 969-9070 to set up your visit.
Enrollment If you make the decision to enroll your child in our program, you must complete and return the required enrollment forms along with a $100 non-refundable registration fee.
Your Child's Schedule Your child may attend West Newton Children's Center 2, 3, 4 or 5 days per week provided their is space available. Once you have decided upon your weekly schedule we ask that it remain the same throughout the school year. We do not allow alternating days.
Tuition Tuition is due in advance of childcare use on the first day of each month. Monthly tuition payments are non-refundable. Tuition must be paid in full for holidays, snow days and time when your child is absent or on vacation, as our costs for maintaining the Center remain the same.
Monthly tuition is calculated based on the hourly rate of $9.50 as follows:
Hours per week x $9.50 x 52 weeks divided by 12 months.
Example: 20 hours x $9.50 x 52 divided by 12 = $823.33 per month (10% discount for 2nd child)
Extra Hours Board For you convenience, we offer additional time or days on an as -needed basis provided there is space available. Extra hours accumulated in a particular month would be included in your following month's tuition. Extra hours may be utilized in half hour increments only at a rate of $9.50 per hour. Our sibling discount does not apply to extra hours.
