Annual Registration Fee

A $75.00 per child non-refundable fee is due at registration and then annually. If your child(ren) are not attending our summer program, your registration fee is due in June to hold your September space.

Community Fee

A community fee of $700 ($650 for returning children and pro-rated for partial week attending students) will be assessed the first month your child attends, and then each August the child continues in the program. This covers the use of our organic essential oils daily, repair of culinary teaching equipment, and part of the cost for the richness of materials used by all of the children in the fine arts + culinary/gardening programs. This fee also includes our soccer/music and dance lessons (included in the monthly tuition fee).

This fee is non-refundable and due annually (August). For families enrolling to hold a space for the upcoming semester or school-year, this fee will hold the students space and will not be refunded if the family is moving or leaving unexpectedly.

Multiple Child Discounts

A reduction in tuition for the second child and any additional children enrolled concurrently is available.

CAMP SANA SUMMER OFFERINGS

A huge perk for parents is our SUMMER CAMP SANA experience – Children enrolled into our 12-month (full-week) programs, will automatically be able to participate in our summer camp Sana programs at the same tuition schedule – this is a huge perk for parents who can’t take off during the summer and love the consistency for their child. At Wholesome Generation, your child stays with their peers and can enjoy ALL of our CAMP SESSIONS (all foods included).
