Wholechild Operations

Days and Hours of Operation

The center is open from 6:30 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday.


There is a $75 registration fee every fall for each family for all programs. A $50 summer registration fee is collected and (not for toddlers) and is used toward activity fee for our summer camps. Each additional child from the same family receives a 10% discount on the older child’s tuition. We staff our center and order supplies based on enrollment, we are unable to offer refunds or discounts due to a child’s absence. Full tuition is required for all days your child does not attend including family vacations and holidays the center is not open. WE DO NOT BILL YOU, you are responsible for paying your tuition as agreed on your tuition contract. Please pay your tuition regularly, this allows us to pay our bills regularly.
