At our school, each family makes a commitment of time and energy, therefore, we are able to keep the monetary cost to a minimum. With our co-operative, we have only one employee, our teacher, and all of the other preschool jobs are performed by parent volunteers. We feel that sharing the ownership of the preschool makes it a very unique place where we, as parents, can decide how we want the preschool to operate.
For the 2015-16 year the tuition is as follows:
- Tuesday/Thursday class – $103/month
- Monday/Wednesday/Friday class – $146/month
- Kindergarten Preparatory class (optional) – $50/month (Oct. – May)
ACP provides a healthy snack each day, which is included in the tuition cost. However, ACP also collects one-time fees to cover registration, field trips, supplies, etc. For 2014-15, one-time fees totaled approximately $180 per family.
