Fees


BlueSkies believes that supporting young children includes support for their families, so our fees and our services – childcare along with parent support and education – include both. BlueSkies offers: year-round care, all-day care, care for infants through 5’s, warm lunches every day, diapers, beautiful spaces, and well educated, experienced teachers. We don’t know of any other early childhood program that offers ALL of these features. Only BlueSkies.

BlueSkies is a nonprofit agency receiving no state or federal subsidies for its Early Childhood Education programs for children or adults. Tuition at BlueSkies covers the cost of enrollment for an individual child. In addition, we have active parent and Board fund raising committees that support reduced tuition for families who cannot pay the full rate. Any family whose child is admitted to the program may apply for financial assistance to subsidize the fees.

No hidden fees – the monthly rate covers everything below!
