Programs and Tuition

The ECEC Children’s Program offers two pathways depending on a child’s age: Preschool (3 to 5 years) or Two-Year-Old (24-36 months). Tuition rates vary depending on selected program and schedule.

Tuition is charged weekly, and is due/payable every other Monday. Families may pay in advance. Families may also expect an annual $75 registration and material fee per child.

    Pre-Admission Health Evaluation

    Before admission, children are required to undergo a pre-admission health evaluation. The health evaluation must be conducted and filled out by a licensed physician. This will allow the Center to see to the unique needs of each student. By enrolling your child in MVC's Early Childhood Education Center, you agree to release those details to the Center. Health records and details are protected under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA.

    On September 1, 2016, Senate Bill 792 took effect. The SB 792 "prohibits a person being employed, or volunteering at a child care center, or a family daycare home if he or she is not immunized against influenza, pertussis, and measles." Senate Bill 792 also defines "volunteer" as "any non-employee that provides care and supervision to children in care." These volunteers must provide proof of the required immunizations before he or she may enter the center.
