Tuition Information:

 2019 - 2020 Tuition

Sunnyside has a new, flat rate tuition structure. The decision to move from a sliding scale model to flat rate structure has not been made lightly. The administration and the board of directors initiated this change in order to strengthen Sunnyside's financial foundation, and ensure its continued success. We remain dedicated to Sunnyside’s legacy of making high quality child care available to families along a wide socio-economic spectrum. Our three-year plan is to move forward with a flat rate tuition structure that will meet our budgetary needs. During that time, our fundraising and development efforts will be directed toward seeding a financial aid fund that will allow us to offer tuition relief in the future to families that qualify.

 Academic Year

The academic year runs from late August through mid-June. Enrollment at Sunnyside is for the full academic year (with the exception of mid-year enrollments when space is available). Summer programming is available to Sunnyside families and is open to the community as well.

Admission Policy

Parents may apply for admission up to a year in advance of possible enrollment. Children must be at least 18 months old by October 1 of the year in which they enroll. Mid-year enrollment is sometimes available, and is contingent on available space.

In admitting children, we follow a priority list, which gives preference to (in order):
  • Children of Color 
  • Siblings of students currently enrolled at Sunnyside.
  • Former Sunnyside families.
  • Added consideration is given to those seeking full-time care.
Once enrolled, a child's place is assured, regardless of list status before admission. We seek to create diverse and balanced groupings of children. Sunnyside's admission policy and programs do not discriminate on the basis of:
  • race, color, ethnicity, national origin, or ancestry
  • religion or creed
  • sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression
  • disability or known association with a disabled individual
  • pregnancy
  • medical condition, genetic information, or AIDS or HIV status
  • age
  • marital status, familial status, family responsibilities, or parental status
  • military or veteran status, or military discharge status
  • height, weight, or personal appearance
  • legal, political, or recreational activity, or political affiliation
  • place of residence or business, or source of income
  • any other protected class or grounds
The Summer Program is administered separately; enrollment in the summer program does not guarantee enrollment for the academic year.

2019 Summer Session - Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead! 

This summer, Sunnyside teachers are excited to guide children's exploration of a variety of activities focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. In addition to our favorite summer day activities of water play and gardening, kids will create, tinker, mix, measure, collect, observe, and investigate with teachers and special guests who will share their expertise.  We will invite musicians, artists and naturalists to Sunnyside to enrich our summer curriculum with activities and demonstrations.
