Our preschool program follows a nine-month school year, beginning at the start of September and continuing into late May. Each school year is broken into three, 11-week sessions. Fees and tuition are paid per session. Students currently enrolled retain priority to secure their enrollment for the entire school year.

Parent Non-Participation Fees
All students will now be assessed non-participation fees prior to the onset of each session.  If a parent elects to work during a session and is able to fulfill their minimum parent participation requirement, previously assessed non-participation fees will be rolled over toward the next preschool session non-participation fees within the same school year.  Non-participation fees will not be refunded during a session; however, they may be refunded upon termination or at the end of the school year.

Resident / Non-Resident Fees
Days
$120 Tuesday / Thursday Students
$180 Monday / Wednesday / Friday Students
$240 All 4-Day Per Week Students

Parent Non-Participation Fee for Missed Work Without 48-Hour Notification
If a parent signs up to work a shift in the classroom and is unable to meet the obligation on that specific date, based on availability, the parent may reschedule during that session as long as there has been 48-hour advance cancellation notice of parent non-participation given.  Rescheduling is done by signing up on the parent sign-up calendar for any future date that is available within the same session.

If the required minimum parent participation obligation is not met, if you arrive more than 15 minutes after the onset of class, or if you are unable to provide 48-hour advance cancellation notice of parent non-participation, the following fee will apply for each applicable day of parent non-participation. Fees will be deducted from the non-participation fees paid toward the account for that session. Any additional balance due must be paid in full before the onset of future sessions.
