Enrollment & Tuition

Children must be at least two years old to attend DLC. All families interested in enrolling at DLC must visit our center first. We do have an open-door policy, but it is best to set up a tour with the director. If our program philosophy is aligned with your family’s philosophy of how children should learn and grow, and our program has space, then we can move forward with registration.

To set up a tour please e-mail Teacher Jami (program director) through the link on the “Contact Us” page.
