Tuition is payable in advance and is due by the fifth of each month. We do offer a family discount for multiple children from the same immediate family. Financial Assistance and Scholarships are also available, please email the Director to get a copy of the application form. We strongly believe that all children should have an early childhood education and will work with families to ensure your child can attend preschool.
There is a non-refundable registration fee of $60.00 due at time of registration. Registration forms can be found here.
There is an additional, one-time fee (due by the first day of school in September) of $50.00 to cover accident insurance, and vision/hearing testing among other things.
A recent (within 6 months) physical, including lead screening, TB screening and chicken pox immunization. Children must have had their third birthday by their first day of school and be toilet trained. We work with families so please inquire even if you have concerns. Children usually begin the program in September, however, late registrants may be enrolled when space is available.
