Tuition and Fees
A non-refundable fee of $50 is due with each application.
If your child is admitted and you decide to enroll, a registration fee of $500 is due with your contract. This deposit will be reimbursed to you at the end of your child's year at Garden Nursery School. If you withdraw prior to completing the school year, this deposit will be retained by GNS as a withdrawal fee.
Upon withdrawal prior to Jan. 1 of the designated school year, you will also be responsible for prorated tuition and fees through (a) six weeks after departure date or (b) the date on which a new family assumes the open slot, whichever comes first.
