Magic Lantern participates in the City of Seattle’s Child Care Assistance Program. We have also been fortunate to offer tuition assistance based on the hard work and generosity of current and previous families. If you are seeking tuition assistance or scholarship support for your child to attend Magic Lantern, please contact the Director for further information and a scholarship application. Our goal is to make sure families receive high quality care for their children while still maintaining our budget.
