Current Parents

Child and Mother
Parents are the first teachers of their children, and as such, are encouraged to participate in the education of their children. While at the CYC, parents may share talents, work experiences, ideas, skills, and other interests. In addition, an active PTA promotes a unique CYC community spirit through fundraising, social, nd outreach efforts.

Here is the Family Handbook the full document, available for reference. All parents are required to print the sign-off sheet (the last page of the handbook) and return to the admissions office during the enrollment process.  Please also read our COVID-19 Family Handbook Addendum for procedural and operational changes due to COVID-19. 

Student Financial Services and Cashiering generates the tuition bills, and tuition is paid directly to that office.

Pay Tuition Payments here.

Parents will be sent bills approximately two weeks prior to the due date, which is the 20th of each month. For example, the bill is received in early October, and payment is due on October 20 for the third tuition payment. Include your account identification number and return to the address on the invoice.

Please contact the Financial Service Center at 301-314-9000 should you fail to receive an invoice or have questions about your invoice. Failure to receive a monthly bill does not negate the responsibility for paying tuition.

Cold Weather Play

During the winter months, children at CYC do still play outside, though for shortened amounts of time as the weather gets colder.

Children must be dressed warmly with head, feet and hands covered. Jackets, boots, mittens and hats and if possible, snowsuits are essential on very cold days. Please layer your child’s clothing for warmth. Outside play gives children a chance for fresh air, a change of environment, and an opportunity to burn off energy by using large muscles.
