  1. I still think that’s too expensive! I remember when my son went to Lab School, not daycare. It was free back then..

  2. The CDC is absolutely worth every penny! You can’t put a price on a good education. The director and teaching staff there are phenomenal. Both my children have attended, and I can honestly say that they are the best! The curriculum is top notch. They are ALWAYS working with the kids. Everyone is so patient and focused on the children. In addition, they are open until 5:30 so that takes away the cost of after school care. Keep up the amazing work CDC!

  3. $4,775 annually is really for 9 months. That comes to $530/month. Plus most parents would still need after school daycare, what’s that another $150/month, then 3 months of summer daycare, another $500/month, give or take a few bucks. Whoa!

    • They’re actually open till 5:30 pm. So, you don’t have to get daycare on top of this. Plus, they actually teach. It’s not just “a daycare.” If you attend, you also get priority placement into E-Lab.
