Summer Rates 2016

Below are the summer rates for the Adventure and Orca programs.  These rates are for our elementary age children only, rates for the preschool classrooms stay the same as the fall tuition rates.

Weekly
5 days per week $280
3 days per week $225
2 days per week $210

In order to prepare for summer enrollment we ask current families to provide written notification of summer plans, indicating which weeks in the summer that you need care, by February 28th

On May 1, pay 50% enrollment deposit for the summer program.  This deposit helps us to ensure that we have an accurate count of children for the summer.

If your plans for the summer change and you need to cancel some or all of your scheduled time, the following cancellation policy applies:

  1. If written notification of cancellation received before May 1 = refund of deposit in full
  2. If written notification of cancellation received before May 31 = forfeit 50% of deposit unless we can find another family to fill the open spot
  3. If written notification of cancellation received after June 1 = forfeit 100% of deposit unless we can find another family to fill the open spot

When do these rates apply?
The rates apply to the 10 weeks between June 27th and September 1st.  As always, summer rates include snacks and lunch.  Also in the summer our fees include the cost of all field trips, so you will not be asked to pay extra.

How do you decide amounts for summer fees?
When assigning the fees for summer I compare our rates with those of similar summer programs in the area as well as weekly day camps.  I set our rates at a level that I feel is competitive and not overpriced. Many summer camps only meet from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm and do not provide lunch.  At Small Faces you will pay only $280 per week, 7:00 am to 6:00 pm with snacks, lunch and field trips provided.  I found this rate to be very affordable when compared to the cost of other programs in Seattle.

How will you bill tuition for the 4 days of summer session in June?
Those families currently in attendance in June will pay their normal monthly tuition and these four days will be included.  New families starting on June 27th will pay $65 per day.

If you have any questions about summer please feel free to e-mail kbrockman@smallfaces.org.

See you this summer!
