Tuition & Fees

Playgroup Aspen is a for profit childcare center. We do not fundraise, grant write, or charge parent hours or work fees. We remain 100% solvent from parent tuition only. Parents are not charged for any scheduled days closed. We work very hard to remain solvent and to maintain our competitive daily tuition rate. 

The daily tuition rate is $72.50 for the School Year Session 2021-22.


For new children in our Preschool and Pre-K groups, there will be $300 deposit taken to hold your child’s spot and a one-time $40 enrollment fee.


For children entering our Terrific Twos group, there is a larger deposit of $750 due to ensure continuity of care and a one-time $40 enrollment fee.


Finally, there is a one-time $350 school year session activity fee for all children. This helps off set supply costs, art class fees, and weekly music class fees for the entire 36-week school year session.
