You can share in our commitment to provide classrooms, play yards and community spaces designed to be learning environments where children and their families feel free to be themselves, to make choices, to try new ideas and to delight in their discoveries and abilities. Our school budget is funded through tuition, fundraisers, grants and donations. It covers salaries, supplies, continuing education for our teaching staff and capital improvements to our facility and play yards.
In addition, your donation will help us to offer scholarships to families in need. Every attempt is made to keep tuition as affordable as possible. Scholarships are available if needed and can cover up to one third of the full tuition. Approximately ten percent of our families currently receive scholarships.
