Sliding Scale Tuition

Helen R. Walton Children’s Enrichment Center uses a sliding scale tuition program. The full cost of tuition is $335/week. Below are the gross annual income guidelines in relation to the total household size.

Applications are accepted year round and the program is administered on a first-come, first-serve basis until all funds are exhausted.  Income eligibility will be reviewed annually. If a family is already participating in the Sliding-Scale Tuition Program and qualifies at the same rate, the family will automatically be renewed. The tuition rate will remain the same for the duration of your child’s attendance at the Children’s Enrichment Center.

Tuition payments are due every Friday by 6:00 p.m. prior to the week of service.
