NPS offers a variety of contracts to accommodate a range of needs. Hourly tuition rates vary according to three factors.
- Rates for the twelve-month contract are lower than the ten-month rates. Note that twelve-month contracts start on July 1. Ten-month contracts start on September 1. If you take a ten-month contract you can still sign up for summer weeks, depending on availability. Generally speaking, if you expect to need four or more weeks of summer coverage, it is worth your while to sign up for the twelve-month contract.
- Hourly rates are lower for students who stay longer on a given day. Note, however, that rates are unaffected by drop-off time or number of days per week.
- Because of the lower staff ratio, rates for the preschool are lower than rates for the infant/toddler program.
