TUITION INCREASE ANNOUNCEMENT

This applies to families with children at Crestview and Little Explorers only. Adventures has a corporate care agreement with locked rates, and Highland Park will keep the same price structure with scholarship offerings, teen mom subsidy and teacher discounts.


As of August 5, 2019...


Infants: $220
Toddler 1: $200 (12 months to 18 months)
Toddler 2: $190 (18 months to 2.5 years)
Preschool: $180 (2.5 years to age 4)
Pre-K: $170 (4 years and older)


IMPORTANT: Billing will change when a child hits the age milestones shown above, not when he/she moves to a new classroom.


Another hike will not be considered until August 2021, so you are guaranteed the same rates for a two-year period. 


Thank you for letting us teach and care for your child!

KID NIGHT IN/PARENT NIGHT OUT

image3

Thank you for the recent responses to our questions concerning what likely becomes a TDC KIDS NIGHT IN/PARENT NIGHT OUT opportunity.


The Friday night/Saturday night selections were close, but there were several comments about parents being too tired by the end of a work week, and that kids are already in our centers for much of the day. Saturday night will be our time of choice with the hours of 6-9pm.


On the subject of fees charged for a three-hour period, we will go with the following:
$10/hr - 1st child
$5/hr - 2nd child
$45/3 hour session - three or more from the same family (this would include children up to age 8)


As much as we know now, we still aren't quite ready to staff or plan a function like this at the moment. You will receive notice a month prior and there may be slot registration and/or advanced payment required.


The likely times for this to be offered are:
Start of School (September)
Before Holidays for Shopping (November-Early December)
Around Valentine's Day (February)
Summer (June)

SPECIAL WEATHER ANNOUNCEMENT

image4

TDC’s Inclement Weather Policy is intended to accommodate the needs of both families and employees. The main goal with every major weather event is to keep everyone out of harm’s way.


TDC Learning Centers may follow USD 501 from time to time, but independent choices will occasionally be made by the Executive Director based on snow amounts, ice potential, timing of precipitation, when plows may be available and/or on extreme temperature patterns.   


Parents and staff members should not contact Center Directors or Main Office regarding decisions that may or may not be made. All announcements pertaining to late starts, early releases or closings will be posted on KSNT, WIBW, Facebook, Twitter, learnplaygrow.org, eblast, group text and/or KidReports.

Become More Involved


If you would like to participate in a committee that meets during lunch once a month, please contact your Center Director.


We want strong parent involvement at each of our five locations, and we would appreciate more volunteers for our larger company fundraisers.
