The Children’s Center strives to keep our tuition rates affordable. We offer scholarship assistance as well as having a contract with Nassau County Department of Social Services (DSS). Please contact us if you need financial assistance.

Tuition Payments are due on the 20th before the first of each month. Payments made by cash or check (payable to PWCC) are accepted in the main office at the Landmark Building during normal business days between the hours of 8am to 6pm. You may also pay by credit card on our website. 

Tuition is due even when your child is absent, whether for illness or vacation and when the Port Washington Children’s Center is closed for a holiday, transition day or an emergency.

If tuition should become delinquent, we reserve the right to discharge a child from the program.
