“In order for the students’ development and the outer development of civilization to coincide, we need a faculty whose interest is not limited to specialized educational practices. Rather, this faculty must be fully involved in the broader aspects of life.”

– Rudolf Steiner

Extended Day Programs

Please note that the following applies to the 2019-2020 school year and is under review for the 2020-2021 school year in light of COVID-19.  This page will be updated as Extended Day program information for 2020-2021 is finalized.

We are excited to announce a revised extended day fee structure that will help make services more affordable for our community. This year we are introducing an Extended Care Annual Pass for Grades students & siblings. This will allow families to utilize our Extended Care services for the entire year 7:30a.m.-5:30 p.m. for one low, paid upfront, non-refundable annual cost paid by Friday, September 14th.  Due to capacity constraints, a limited amount of Annual Passes are available to sell.  We recommend that you purchase your Annual Pass ASAP. We will develop a waitlist if we have excess demand.  Families on the waitlist will pay regular list price per hour/day until an Annual Pass becomes available to purchase.

Annual Pass:  We offer a Lower Grades (1st-5th), Sibling Lower Grades, and Upper Grades (6th-8th).  This is our most economical option and allows drop-off at 7:30 a.m., pick-up by 5:30 p.m.  Upfront payment is non-refundable.

Morning Care is available to children in Kindergarten and the Grades, Monday through Friday, beginning at 7:30 a.m for grades and 8:00 for Kindergarten.  No reservations are needed for Morning Care; simply sign in your child with the Morning Care teacher when you arrive.

Morning Care is free for all Grades students from 8:00- 8:30 a.m.  For Kindergarten students dropped off prior to 8:30 a.m., there will be a flat $3 charge per day, per child. For grade students dropped prior to 8:00 a.m., there will be a flat $3 charge per day, per child.

Aftercare is available to all students (Preschool, Kindergarten and Grades), Monday through Friday.  Due to capacity constraints, we highly suggest making a reservation in advance to secure a spot in aftercare.

Early Childhood Aftercare is a 2-hour program from 1:15-3:15 p.m. with a day rate of $14 per child, reservation by 10 a.m. required or $24 day rate.  No prorations of this day rate. Space is limited, standing reservations are suggested. High demand may make drop-in spots unavailable.  Preschoolers must be picked up by 3:15 p.m. Kindergarteners can transfer to the Grades Aftercare at 3:15 p.m. with reservation only due to space constraints.  See chart for Grades Aftercare hourly rates. Unannounced transfer to Grades aftercare will be $11 per hour.

Standing reservations for Grades Aftercare are available on a monthly basis at the rate of $7 per hour (additional siblings at $2 per hour).  To create a standing reservation, please fill out an Aftercare contract with the front office. Standing reservations are binding and will be paid in advance.

Grades Drop-in students can be accommodate as space permits, but the office must be notified before 1:00 p.m.  The drop-in rate is $9 per hour (additional siblings at $2 per hour).

Grades Unannounced drop-ins will be charged at a rate of $11 per hour (additional siblings at $2 per hour), no proration by quarter hour will apply to Unannounced drop-ins.

Aftercare begins as soon as classes are dismissed and is available until 3:15 p.m. for Preschoolers and 5:30 p.m. for Kindergarten and Grades students.  Students who are picked up after 5:30 p.m., will be charged a late fee of $25.  Repeated late pick-ups from Aftercare may result in loss of Aftercare privileges at the Administration’s discretion.

All class dismissal times have a 10-minute grace period.  Any children who have not been picked up by the end of the 10-minute grace period will be signed in to Aftercare, and unannounced drop-in Aftercare charges will apply starting at the time of dismissal.

Sibling Discounts

Younger siblings of currently enrolled students who are enrolled in Preschool through 8th Grade receive the following sibling discounts:

  • 10% off for the second child
  • 15% off for the third child
  • 20% off for the fourth and further children

Sibling discounts apply to tuition only and are not applicable for registration or supply fees. There is no sibling discount for children enrolled in Me & My Baby or Parent/Child classes. Discounts will be applied from the oldest child to the youngest.

Tuition Adjustment

Each family’s financial contribution to the school is important, and every child’s tuition adds to the welfare of our community. The primary responsibility for financing a child’s education rests with the family, and we seek families who are committed to making this important investment in their child’s future. We also believe that a Waldorf education should be available to any child, regardless of financial circumstance. It is the intention and policy of Maple Village Waldorf School to welcome students from the broadest possible range of the social, economic, and cultural spectrum. A diverse community benefits all of our students, staff and faculty. We balance this belief with the practical realities of our school’s financial requirements and needs, thus many factors come into play when tuition adjustment decisions are made. Applications for Tuition Adjustment are not automatically approved.

Tuition Adjustment is currently only available to families with at least one student applying for Grades 1 through 8 and is adjusted on a case-by-case basis. There is no Tuition Adjustment available for Early Childhood families at this time.

Tuition Adjustment Application Process:

  1. Submit a Grades application for your child (new students only). TA applications will not be processed until your student has completed the admissions process and has been accepted to MVWS.
  2. Go to MyTADS.com and fill out the tuition adjustment application, including a Proposed Tuition Offer Letter.
  3. TADS will follow up with your application and request any missing items.
  4. The MVWS Board of Trustees will review your offer and TADS’ report.
  5. A letter will be sent to you via email stating your tuition adjustment for the new school year.
  6. E-mail any questions to Alice Stevens. TADS also offers customer service support through their website.
  7. Please note that a new tuition adjustment application must be submitted every school year with updated financial information.

Please Note:  While the tuition adjustment application period for the 2020-2021 school year is formally closed, new student TA applications are still being considered for a maximum tuition reduction of 15%.  To apply, please follow the steps listed above.
