The monthly cost of the Blended Preschool Program is $345 per month. There are nine installments totaling an annual total of $3105. A 10% discount off the monthly fee is applied to each additional sibling concurrently enrolled in the program.

The first month’s tuition is due during registration as it will secure your child’s placement (this payment is non-refundable). This will be considered payment for your September tuition. The remaining eight installments are due on the first school day of each month, September through April. However, you always have the opportunity to pay in advance.

Refunds cannot be made for absences due to illness, vacation or emergency weather days or moving out of district.

Due to the residency requirement, any relocation out of District 58 boundaries will prohibit the continuance of your child in the Preschool. Upon notification of relocation, a timely transition will be provided.
