Preschool (2024-2025) Payment

 

A registration/activity fee of $100.00 is due at registration and serves to confirm your child’s placement in a class. This is not a supply fee. It helps to defray our startup classroom preparation costs. Your child’s teacher will give you a short list of supplies to bring in the first weeks of school.

Tuition is due the first week of each month. You will not receive a bill, so your timely payment is kindly appreciated. There is a $5.00 late fee per week if paid after the first week of the month. Payment is collected at the drop box at the reception desk or hand it to the director.

The monthly fee schedule is as follows starting with the month of August through the month of April. There will be no tuition payment for the month of May if you pay for August.

  • 2-day (2 and 3 year old classes) $110 per month or $990.00 yearly
  • 4-day (Pre-K class) $220 per month or $1,980.00 yearly

Note: Although the number of days in session varies from month to month, the tuition does not vary. Also, snow days that result in unscheduled school closings do not affect tuition. We make every effort to keep your costs reasonable. We feel that the quality of our program and teachers is top notch and salaries must be paid despite closings for bad weather.

We are having an Open House for any new, returning, or potential students on February 13th from 6:30-7:30pm! Make plans to take a tour, meet the Director and teachers, and ask any questions you may have.
