Full-Time – 5 days – Part-Time – 3 days (must choose 3 days) for all CAP sites.

A discount is available for two or more children enrolled in the CAP program. The additional child(ren)’s fee is reduced by approximately 10%. A 5% discount is available when the program fee is paid in full at the time of enrollment (when enrollment begins prior to December).

Two payment options

  1. Pay in Full
    Pay the $60 registration fee plus the total CAP fee and receive a 5% discount (deducted from the CAP fee). A credit/debit card must be saved to the payer’s online registration profile. *
  2. Payment Plan
    $60 registration fee due at time of registration. Nine automatic monthly payments will be deducted August 1, 2023 through April 1, 2024. A credit or debit card must be saved to the payer’s online registration profile.

*Any registrations received after 11:59pm or over the weekend are processed with all registrations received on the next business day. This ensures fairness. If an opening is available, the child is placed in the program. Once a child is registered, parent/guardians can view confirmation from the online profile. If an opening is not available in the plan that has been requested, the CAP Supervisor will contact the parent/guardian and offer an alternative plan if one is available. If no alternative is available, the child is placed on a waiting list.

**Once the school year begins, registration requires approval. After receipt of the completed forms, the parent/guardian is contacted by phone. The child can start in the program 5-10 business days after notification of acceptance into the program. The initial amount due at registration will be adjusted and may be different than the amount listed on the registration form depending on the program start date.

Did your child end up on the waitlist?

Please note the following

When a spot becomes available for your child to enroll in the CAP program from the waitlist you have two options:

  1. Accept the spot and enroll in the CAP program.
  2. Choose not to accept the spot in CAP. If you decline the spot, your child will be removed from the waitlist and you will need to restart the registration process should you need care in the future.

Important Payment Information

For your security, credit or debit card numbers are not written on the registration form. Each family must save a bank card number to the parent/guardian’s online registration profile.
