A Program of Schools for Children

2020 – 2021 Tuition

We know that investing in your child’s education is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. That is why we hope to help you understand the unique value of a Lesley Ellis education and help you make our school a part of your family’s plans.

It is hard to put a price on education when it encompasses more than knowledge acquisition. Going to school should certainly be about robust intellectual pursuits and academic preparation. But it should also be about being known and celebrated; about learning the skills and sensitivities that help children be kind and respectful community members; about lighting the spark of curiosity and of creativity. It should be fun. And it should inspire young minds and stir souls to make the world a better place.

The best education not only meets the demands of the world in which students live, but it also anticipates those demands. The best educators are innovators and collaborators—sharing in the excitement of exploring, discovering, and learning together.

There’s a lot to do at Lesley Ellis after the regular school day ends. The optional Clubhouse program gives children the space, time, and guidance to share projects, games and other activities in a welcoming environment at an unhurried pace. More than a childcare program, we provide the same intentional programming and individual attention that we do during the school day—helping to promote continued growth and the development of positive self-esteem.

Specific details about Clubhouse offerings and fees can be found here.
