• Tuition and Fees

    Below are the projected tuition rates for the 2024–2025 school year.

Program Tuition
  • * The 2024–2025 rates are pending approval by the Ashland School Committee and a decision is expected by January 2024. *


    If your child is placed, there is a non-refundable registration fee of $175.00 to secure your spot.


    Based on family needs and staff availability, the following options may also be available for an additional fee:

    • Early Drop-off Program: 7:30–8:30 a.m. ($10 per day)
    • Late Pick-up Program: 2:55–4:30 p.m. ($15 per day)

Payment Information

  • If your child is placed, you must submit a non-refundable registration fee of $175.00 to secure your spot through the Town of Ashland payment portal.

    Tuition may be broken up into 10 monthly payments. The first payment is due no later than July 1, 2024. If your tuition is not paid by July 1, you will lose your spot. Payments are due on the first of the month every month through April 1, 2025. Payments must be submitted online through the Town of Ashland payment portal (the same portal used to pay excise taxes, water bills, bus fees, EDP, etc.). 

    We will email you monthly statements around the 15th of each month. A late fee of $20.00 will be incurred on the 2nd of each month for any late payments.

    Enrollments are made in good faith for the entire school year. In case of necessary withdrawals from enrollment, notice is required, and deposits are not refundable. Since expenses are constant and only a limited number of children can be accepted into the program, there can be no reduction in fees for absences, and no refunds will be made.
