early education

Enrollment in any quality early education program is an important financial decision for you and your family.  There is no one-size-fits-all answer to what the tuition cost will be for your family, as there are many variables to consider.  You should expect to pay between $10 to $12 per hour of quality preschool instruction.  Your rate will depend largely on the hours per day and days per week your child will be attending.  Generally, the more your child attends the lower the rate. 

The best way to get accurate tuition information is to speak directly with the Director (Jessica) to discuss your individual needs.  We can work with you to ensure quality pre-schooling is available to you.  Jessica will help guide you through our programs and talk through the associated cost structures prior to progressing into the enrollment process.  There are outside sources to help with tuition costs as needed.  

Quality pre-schooling can have an important impact for your child.  Our belief is that all children should have the opportunity to start their education adventure on the right foot.  We invite you to take a tour and meet with us and let us help you find a program that will meet your child's needs and your budget.

Some things that impact tuition rates:

  • Number of days per week,

  • Hours per day that your child will be with us.

  • Stretch payment plans available

  • Personal circumstance

Payment is accepted via credit card, check or cash.
