FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

  • Cambrian Extended Care Information About Pricing and Discounts.

    We at Cambrian care deeply about our families, and recognize that keeping our prices affordable is of utmost importance. Our rates are comparable and slightly lower to neighboring school district extended care rates, and are based upon what is needed to run each school site program successfully.

    Currently we offer 10% discounts for families with multiple children attending our extended care programs, Cambrian Employees and Military families. We also offer a 5% discount for accounts paid in full for the entire school year. Families may qualify for multiple discounts. Ex: 10% Multi-child + 5% entire year paid in full = %15 off total cost. 

    All applicable discounts will be noted on the first invoice received. A one time registration fee of $50 or $75 is non-refundable and in addition to the extended care rates. If you have chosen to pay the entire year balance in full, or if you have chosen to make payments over 10 months, your first invoice will be due August 10th, 2020. We will not run invoices before August 10th.

    Tuition installment payments are due on the 10th of every month from August to May. Any payment not received will be automatically charged a $50 late tuition fee. The late fee must be paid within 4 days or enrollment to extended care may be suspended.

    No additional scholarships or financial aid is available at this time.

    Cambrian Extended Care cannot offer the same pricing rates as the  R.O.C.K. program did previously, as Cambrian School District does not qualify for the government subsidies that the R.O.C.K is provided as a city run program.
