Application & Fees

Calvin Hill Tuition is based on a sliding scale linked to income. Please review the 2017-2018 tuition schedule for detailed information about tuition rates. The Calvin Hill sliding scale upholds the Center’s founding mission to provide high quality, affordable child care and early childhood education to the children of Yale and greater New Haven communities. Our Board of Directors is committed to ensuring that the community of families enrolled is economically diverse. In the 2012-13 year, tuition was reduced for families with incomes below $150,000 from previous years in recognition of the challenges of these difficult economic times. Calvin Hill welcomes children of all races, religious, ethnic, and economic backgrounds and abilities.
