The center offers a scholarship program to families whose child care costs place a greater than normal burden on the household budget and who have a reserved slot in the center. Applications are provided to all enrolled families in the spring once the budget has been approved and tuition has been set.

10-month / 12-month option

Currently Lexington Playcare Center offers families the option to attend our program for 10 months (from September through June), withdraw for July and August, and return to a reserved slot in the fall. Families must inform the center of their plan to make use of our 10-month option by March 15th or they are financially responsible for a 12-month program. The non-refundable fee for this option is $225.00.

Camp LPC

July and August bring a transformation to our center and Camp LPC is a very exciting place to be! Our program changes into an outdoor, adventure-packed, camp-like atmosphere. There might be walks around town, Silly Sunglasses Day, Pottery Day, Wacky Week, a visit from the New England Aquarium, Bugworks, and the ice cream truck, and even pizza lunches. There is always swimming in our wading pools, buckets and buckets of water fun and lots of sun block everywhere!
