Tuition rate is determined by your classroom and not an individual’s date of birth. Students are placed in a classroom based on their school age and will typically remain in the class for a full school year. A rate change will only occur when a child is moved to the next classroom level.

Discounts: (Discounts do not apply to students that are on any scholarship or federally funded programs.)

Pilgrim Church member discount: Active members receive a $10.00 per week discount per family. Active members attend Sunday services at least 50% of a month and have joined the church.

Sibling discount: Each Sibling receives a $10.00 a week discount. Siblings are defined as a student that shares the same legal guardian and lives in the same household.

The school reserves the right to dismiss any child for non-payment of any of the above fees. Late fees of $10.00 per week will be applied to any account that is more than one week past due. Tuition is due regardless of holidays.

The school does not guarantee that the teachers and administrative personnel employed by the school at the time of the signing of this agreement will continue to be employed throughout the school year. If necessary, appropriate substitutions may be made.

Joyful Noise admits students of any race, religion, sex, and national ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.

Research shows that well-nourished children are healthier, more attentive, and have better mental performance than children who are under-nourished. Findings also indicate that children served by the Child Care Food Program (CCFP) eat healthier food than children who bring food from home. The CCFP helps child care facilities implement “best practices”; to ensure children have access to a variety of nutritious foods for healthy growth and to reduce obesity risk.

With this program we provide breakfast, lunch and snack each day.
