OUR MISSION

FoundationKids Mother's Day Out is an extension of the children's ministry of Foundation Church.

2021-22 tuition & FEES

There is a $150/child registration fee that must be paid at the time of registration to guarantee your child's placement. The registration fee is non-refundable and allows us to prepare supplies and curriculum and train teachers for the coming school year. There are no separate curriculum fees or cleaning fees expected during the year.


Monthly tuition for children 12 months-23 months (as of September 1) is $200/mo; tuition for children 24 months and above (as of September 1) is $180/mo. There is a 10% sibling discount for each additional child. (For example, if you are enrolling a one year old, a three year old, and a four year old, you would be invoiced at $200 for the first child, with a discounted rate of $162 for the two others, for a monthly total of $524.)


Tuition is invoiced via PayPal on the 23rd of each month, with payment considered late by the 3rd. Tuition has been averaged out over the year and is therefore collected regardless of the number of educational days per month (Christmas break, spring break, etc.). We cannot offer discounts or refunds for days missed due to family illness or bad weather closures.


Some families may have need of an extended school day. We offer an optional Early Bird (7:45-9am) or Late Day (2:30-3:45pm) for an additional $40 per month. For families who require both Early Bird and Late Day, we offer a combo for $60 per month. Sibling discounts do not apply for Early Bird and Late Day.

OUR CLASSES

Foundation Kids MDO offers classes for children aged 12 months through PreK. Children will be placed into classes based on their age and/or development as of September 1st. Occasionally, classes may be combined or divided according to registration numbers. 


We adhere to MinistrySafe guidelines of two non-related, trained, and background-checked adults per classroom, which supports excellent class size ratios for a productive, safe, and attentive learning environment. All staff are CPR/FirstAid certified.

Caterpillars--capped at 8 children

Sprouts--capped at 10 children
