Preschool Enrollment

Registration(enrollment) 2024-2025

Tuition is paid one month in advance and is based on a 10-month schedule (September – June). Short months such as December or April require the same tuition, as do longer months. Remember, you are securing a slot in the program for your child, and the program runs all school year long. All registration and financial agreements, plus first and last month tuition, are required before a child can enter into the program. In addition, there is a $25 registration fee which is non-refundable.

All payments will be made after the lottery is complete and students have been identified for enrollment in each program.

Children must turn either three or four years old,  depending on class, by August 31 for the upcoming  school year.
