Tuition

“Overall I feel very lucky to have found Noble Day Care. It's an affordable gem in the city! Great directors, staff and program.”      - Noble Day Care parent

What is your fee structure? How did you determine this fee structure?

Tuition is based on the classroom your child is in, not the age your child has reached. This is directly related to the ratio of staff members to children. Your child will be moved up to the next classroom when they are old enough AND when space is available. There is an annual registration fee for each child of $110. Weekly tuition rates are shown below and will be paid bi-weekly.

Payment Policies, Sibling Discounts and Late Fees

  • Returned Check: $10
  • Sibling Discount: 10% for lowest priced tuition

What are your pricing policies, including late payments, delinquency, discounts, and other factors that affect cash flow?

Payments will be due bi-weekly, on the Friday before services begin on Monday. If no payment has been made by Monday, after your child has been dropped off, a late fee of $10 will be applied. If no payment is made by the next Friday, the child(ren) may not attend school on Monday until payments have been settled and they risk losing their spot to someone on a waiting list. We will offer a 10% discount for siblings on the smallest priced tuition. Late pick-up fees will apply after 6:00 p.m. to encourage on-time pick-ups. There will be a $5 late fee for the first ten minutes a parent/guardian is late, and then an additional $1 per minute thereafter. This fee must be paid in full before your child can return for care the next day. There will also be a charge of $10 for any returned check.
