Tuition & Fees

Elementary School is truly an extraordinary place of learning. Our talented staff provides each student with a rigorous standards.

The homelike quality of our school contributes to a relaxed, focused experience for the child. Our indoor classroom activities are placed on open shelves for selection as interest and readiness inspires the child. Our outdoor environment offers a beautiful developed playground with manipulatives, tricycles, pets, and gardens.

FOR PRESCHOOL ADMISSION:  Children must have turned age 3 by December 31st when the school year begins in September.  Children must be independently able to use the restroom (fully potty trained).  Pull-ups and training diapers are not permitted in class.  Students enrolling in full-day program should be transitioning out of their daily afternoon “nap” routines.  Children must also demonstrate a willingness to cooperate with the staff and other children, and meet classroom expectations.

Please note that WEM cannot hold your space without tuition payment at the beginning of each school year if your child is not fully potty trained and ready for school.  Our rhyming rule of thumb for readiness is as follows;  no spitters or hitters, fighters or biters, and nappers or crappers!

EXTENDED DAY PROGRAMS: For families who need more than the occasional before or after school care, the Extended Day “Activity Club” option at WEM is a discounted rate when compared to the $12/HR “Activity Club” drop-in fees.  The extended day tuition option is available to students in all “full-day” programs and is billed as follows:

  • PRESCHOOL & KINDERGARTEN:  $3,500.00 annually or $350.00/mo.
  • ELEMENTARY & MIDDLE SCHOOL:  $3,000.00 annually or $300.00/mo.

There really is no such thing as race. We are one species — each of us much, much more alike than different. We all come from Africa. We all are of the same stardust. We are all going to live and die on the same planet, a Pale Blue Dot in the vastness of space. We have to work together.

Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently ... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.
