    ( please accept our apologies for the small increase in price. On 5/21/2021 we became aware of an increase in our operating costs of $50 per student. Dont worry we are not passing on that entire amount to you. However we are asking parents to pay $15 more for our full week and half week options and $10 for our 2 day and single day options. If you have already paid the old pricing you will not be asked to pay any additional amount. The increase will apply to only new registrations that occur after 5-21-2021)
