Each family contracts and pays for full-time care, even if they elect to use the center less than full-time. Tuition is based on the household's total income from all sources. There is no tuition difference among age groups.
Tuition rates for the 2013-14 school year:
|Less than $39,999||$1,138|
|Greater than $150,000 (Full Tuition Rate)||$1,890|
Tuition is due the first of each month. Each family pays a security deposit of one month's tuition at the time the contact is signed. This deposit is applied against all fees outstanding on the last day of enrollment and the remainder returned. The second child in a family is charged 90% of the family rate, but not less than $1,138 per month.
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has vouchers for families. In order to meet income eligibility requirements, all families must have a family at or below 50% of the State Median Income (SMI) upon initial assessment and remain income eligible if the income remains at or below 85% SMI. Daily rates are significantly lower than Lemberg's Tuition Scholarship Plan.
Lemberg Children's Center accepts state vouchers from the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care (EEC). To apply for these vouchers, contact Child Care Circuit (CCC) at (978) 722-2547 or (800)-660-2868.
