Kids West Fees
The first child rate applies to the child in the family attending the greater number of times per week, regardless of the child’s age or position in the family. Second child rates (and beyond) are discounted and apply to children attending the same or fewer number of times per week as the first child.
Full-day care rates are for non-school days (conference days, teacher in-service days, and winter and spring breaks) and payments must be made in advance.
