Preschool Hours & Rates

We offer several options to attempt to meet the various needs of families.  These include morning only or extended-day afternoon sessions, September through May.  Our yearly calendar is closely aligned to a typical elementary school calendar, with days off for government holidays, parent/teacher conferences, Christmas vacation, Spring Break, etc. All children must be potty-trained prior to the start of school. In keeping with the Minnesota school guidelines, children enrolling in our preschool program are encouraged to meet the age requirements for their classroom by Sept. 1 of that school year.

*We charge a $110 nonrefundable Enrollment Fee.

4-year-old Classes – This classroom is intended for 4-5 year-olds in the year before Kindergarten.

For both classes, the main curriculum is taught in the morning (session 1).   The optional afternoon sessions include: lunchtime, free choice time/learning centers, rest, exercise, individual reinforcement and review, and story time.  Enrollment in session 2 requires enrollment in session 1.   Lunch is not included in tuition.
