Additional Fees

Registration/Consumable Supplies Fee  A $40.00 nonrefundable registration fee per child is required at the time of registration to secure your child’s enrollment and to purchase necessary consumable supplies for the classroom.

Field Trip Fee  As part of our summer camp program there is a nonrefundable field trip fee with a minimum of $50.00 for five weeks or less and a $100.00 fee for six weeks or more depending on your family’s needs. 

Swimming Fee  During the summer as part of our preschool program from three to five a $20.00 fee will be charged for those children attending Wednesday mornings at the Potawatomi pool.  Because our staff accompanies the children on these outings, families whose children do not plan to attend, however, will need to seek their own child care resources during swim time.
