Tuition & Fees
Preschool families are required to pay annual fees and tuition fees. Families will be informed of any special collections which are sanctioned by the preschool, but optional, through written communication from the director. Families who elect to participate in these events should pay monies to the preschool office. Preschool families should never feel obligated to participate in purchasing group lunches, teacher gifts, or similar collections. The choice to participate in these collections is at the individual discretion of each family.
A registration fee and supply fee make up the annual fees due at time of registration. A portion of the annual fee is considered a registration fee and is non-refundable ($130). If you are a member of First Presbyterian Church, registration fees will be waived for your child. The annual fee is based on the number of days a child is enrolled.
Tuition payments are due on or before the first day of the month. A late payment fee of $15.00 per child will be charged after the 15th of the month. Statements are sent on delinquent accounts after the 10th only. Children will not be able to attend school if a payment is delinquent by more than 30 days. If you have a problem paying the monthly tuition charge by the date requested, please discuss your situation with the Director or Bookkeeper. Monthly tuition varies according to the age level of the child and number of days the child attends. A discount of 3% is offered to those parents who wish to pay the FULL year’s tuition in advance. The discount also applies to the Early Bird fee and Extended Day tuition. This must be paid by the first day of school in order to receive the discount. If you are paying with cash, be sure to get a receipt prior to leaving the office and please have the exact amount as the Preschool does not have change.
Annual fees, last month tuition and the current year tuition MUST be paid in full by the last day of school to ensure your child’s spot in the Preschool program for next Fall. If the monies are not current your child’s spot will be filled with the next name on the waiting list.
*We understand there are times that our tuition can be a burden on some families. For that reason, we have the Adair Margo Financial Aid Fund. You can learn more and apply here.
Early Birds is a service provided by the preschool for parents who must drop children off before Kindergarten or Preschool begins, as early as 7:30 a.m. During this time children explore the outdoor classroom or engage in classrooms throughout the building.
Extended Day is a service offered to all children who attend the Preschool. The children may stay through lunch until 3:00 p.m. Your child may attend one day, two days, three days, or five days a week, and we ask that parents please be prompt in picking up at 3:00 p.m. You will need to provide a lunch for your child. If your child’s lunch requires refrigeration, please provide an ice pack or other cooling device in his/her lunch. Children who nap should bring a sheet, blanket, pillow and any other sleep need. These will be sent home at the end of the week to be washed.
