Home / Tuition

CHMS offers families the flexibility of three schedule options with three corresponding tuition rates. The tuition rates vary based on the number of hours a day you contract for your child to attend CHMS. Listed below are the schedule options.

2016–2017 Tuition Rates

Payment Schedule

Tuition payments are due on the first of each month or the first business day.


CHMS offers a three percent reduction in the tuition for each additional child enrolled in the program along with a sibling.

The school does not give tuition refunds if your child is absent, you are on vacation, or the school is closed due to scheduled holidays or inclement weather. The school calendar follows the Arlington County Public School calendar, except that CHMS extends the academic year by two additional days.

Extra Hours of Care

CHMS staff may occasionally provide extra care for your child beyond your child’s schedule option, but only if we have sufficient staff on hand. You must arrange for extra care with the office no later than 10:00 AM on the day the extra care is needed. We charge $30 per dismissal for care provided after your child’s regular hours when that care is arranged in advance.
