Annual Materials Fee*

A materials fee of $250 will be assessed the first month your child attends, and then each September the child continues in the program. This covers the items for earthquake preparedness kits and part of the cost for the richness of materials used by all of the children in the arts program.

Sibling Enrollment Information

Upon enrollment of your first child, we offer sibling priority for subsequent children in your family to attend our program. It is imperative to note that siblings are given priority to join the school when they turn 2.6 prior to summer or fall start times. We cannot guarantee a space for siblings for our older 3 or 4 year old classrooms.

In addition, siblings are only given priority when the second child is enrolled within 15 months of the last day of the first child or both children are attending Little Owl at the same time.

For the second child and any additional children enrolled concurrently, a 20% reduction is available.
