We operate on a first-come, first-served basis until our programs are full, so register quickly!
Any registrations received after capacity is reached will be put on a waitlist in the order they were received. You will be contacted within 5-10 business days to notify you if your child’s application has been accepted, or if they have been placed on our waitlist.
A non-refundable processing fee of $50.00 is required for each family’s enrollment.
This fee is added to your account once enrollment is approved. There are no other administrative charges throughout the school year.
Non-Refundable Registration Deposit
A $100 security deposit is required for each child upon online registration. This deposit is non-refundable and it is applied to your child’s first month’s tuition.
FREE and EASIEST way to pay is via https://my.smartcare.com/ or via the Smartcare for Parents app.
