Tuition 2018-2019


Registration for current families opens February 15, 2018.  Registration for the greater central coast families opens March 10, 2018.

We are a young, non-profit 501c3 school. It is our goal to grow to a full preschool-8th grade program.

Enrollment, Tuition and Application Fees

An annual enrollment fee of $250 per student and $350.00 for 2 or more children.  This non-refundable fee guarantees a space for the student.

The Tuition Protection fee is 2% of the annual tuition. Families who prepay full tuition need not pay for tuition protection unless they wish to protect their investment; those who prepay and do not pay the fee must sign a waiver. The fee reduces the financial impact to the family and the school should a student withdraw before the end of the school year due to an approved reason. The tuition protection fee appears on the first tuition bill.

Any payment returned fee: $29
Late payment fee: $35

Each child (grades one through sixth) must have a recorder or flute. The instruments cost between $60 and $86 and are available through the school. In addition, children in grades four through fifth may need a violin or cello, which may be rented or purchased.

Multi Child Discount:

Two children in the program 10% off tuition.  Three or more children in the program 15% off tuition.  This does not apply to our homeschool enrichment program.

Application Fee

A non-refundable fee of $60 is due with your application to Wishing Well School.

Aftercare Program

Early Childhood:
Our afternoon begins with relaxed play and a homemade snack from home, followed by creative projects indoors and outdoors. We then move outside for energetic play and games for up to one and a half hours and conclude the day with a nap time inside with stories and free time. The program offers many seasonal crafts and music, and provides opportunities for older children to work on their homework.

Grades children enjoy a rhythm as dependable as their school day: they enjoy lunch together, free play outside and each day of the week is dedicated to a craft or art activity. Each week unfolds their cycle of daily activities: painting, yarn, beading, sewing, and cooperative games.
Through its rhythm, the After-School Care program enriches children of the school through a harmonious extension of their daily Waldorf curriculum, and provides them with a nurturing atmosphere incorporating the values of imagination and knowledge integral to Waldorf philosophy.
