Programs and Fees

Applegate offers a three hour program Monday through Friday, either in the morning or in the afternoon. Morning hours are 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Afternoon hours are 1:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m. Both programs run five days a week and follow the local public elementary school calendar. We can accept children 24 months through age five.

Each program enrolls 28 children and is staffed by four teachers.

For the 2022-2023 School year, fees for the morning or afternoon program will be $530 per month.  A non-refundable deposit of $500 is due at the time you accept a space for your child. The deposit will count toward tuition if your child attends.

Extended care is optional and can be added from 8:00-9:00 a.m. for the morning program. Noon/lunch care is available to both morning and afternoon children and runs from 12:00-1:00 p.m. An extended hour of daycare is an additional $195/month.

Work-Credit is available for parents who wish to work one or two hours a week in the program for a tuition reduction. Tuition for families working 2 hours a week is reduced to $400/month. Parents help out with daily cleaning, extra jobs and weekend furniture moving. Having parents involved is an important part of our program and approximately one third of the families participate.

Due to the pandemic restrictions and a teacher shortage, Applegate will not be offering a summer program for 2022. For the same reasons, we will also not be able to enroll for an afternoon program for the 2022-23 school year. We will start with a morning program only. We are sorry for any inconvenience this is causing for families.
