Tuition and Fees

At CDM, we strive to make tuition and fees appropriate for quality care, yet affordable for families. Our tuition and fees are also representative of our nonprofit status as a church ministry.

Payment is required, whether present or not, on student’s regularly scheduled days and during the week of Christmas. Please be aware that tuition is based on your child’s classroom level, not birth date, and changes as they move up to the next classroom level.
