    We offer parents options for both attendance and payment:


    Full Time (3-5 days per week) - $40 per week (K-5) and  $50 per week (Pre-K)*


    Part-Time (1-2 days per week) - $10/day (K-5)   and  $12/day (Pre-K)*


    *Pre-K after school care begins at 2:30 PM. All other students begin at 3 PM.


    Payment Options: Cash or Money Order (Mon-Wed only).    Debit Card (Mon-Fri)


    Our director is Ms. Mary Chavers and her regular staff includes: Ms. Rubye Brown, Mrs. Jules Cole, Mrs. Charlotte Mackin, Mrs. Eugenia Miller,Mrs. Phyllis Williams and some wonderful students from UAB along with part-time assistance from Mr. Lowery.
