Tuition figures, which are provided directly by the preschool programs, represent the highest and lowest fees charged for their services and reflect various ages and amounts of care. Programs may range from two half-days a week to five full days a week, and programs may charge by the week, by the month or by a school or calendar year of 9, 10 or 12 months. When schools provided weekly or monthly figures, we calculated the rate for a 10-month period, which was the most common amount of care. For specific tuition amounts, check with each school.
If money is keeping you from applying to a certain school, don’t let it. Many of the schools listed want a more diverse group of students and are willing to help make that happen. Sliding scales also exist, and some schools say they will not turn away a child because of a parent’s lack of financial resources.
Also, please note that some schools listed here give preference to, or only accept, parents affiliated with the providing organization.
