tuition, hours, and joining us

Art Beast Child Development Center is opening in October 2017. We will begin contacting interested families in early October and be able to conduct tours and enroll children in mid-October. We thank you for your patience as we ready, license, and staff the site! Art Beast Children's Studio, our arts play space in midtown Sacramento, though connected in philosophy, will not be able to answer questions about the new child development center.

joining our center

1.  The center opens in October 2017. We will begin enrolling families in mid-October once the building and play yard are renovated and ready for tours and children. To get on our wait list, please complete this form.

2.  Come for a Tour: When an opening becomes available at the school, we will contact families at the top of our wait list for a tour. Parent(s) tour the school and have a conversation with the director. Children may attend the tour though parents may prefer to spare them the adult talk. We apologize for the lack of on-demand tours; however, this policy ensures our school community experiences fewer interruptions and the full attention of their teachers.

3.  Application and Registration Fee: When the center and family agree there is a strong philosophical fit, families can complete an application.  A nonrefundable application and enrollment fee of $175 is due with the application. This will secure your child's spot. The full month's tuition paid in full will be collected before the first day of school.

Tuition includes meals and snacks to keep spirits high.
