Tuition PreschoolThis program, supported by a monthly fee of $280 from participating families, serves over 60 pre-kindergarten students from ages 3 to 5 years old. As space is limited, access to the tuition-based preschool program will be through a lottery conducted each February.Students of the Tuition, Preschool For All, and Special Education programs are placed in classrooms using a blended format at Brokaw Early Learning Center or Prairie Point Elementary School. This means all three populations are represented in selected classrooms. Due to classroom capacity and grant requirements, not all classrooms can accommodate tuition students. Classrooms will be facilitated by one teacher, one teacher assistant, and other support staff as needed.All students experience The Creative Curriculum, a scientifically researched based pre-kindergarten curriculum. The philosophy of this curriculum is learning through play. Teachers utilize direct instruction and at least one hour of student directed play at learning centers.Teachers assess student’s progress and note student’s interests in order to tailor learning activities so that they meet the needs of all students.Programs are offered in half day sessions, Monday through Friday. Students attend the first session from 8:00am-10:30am, or the second session from 11:45am-2:15pm. Preschool students follow the district calendar, except students do not attend on any shortened attendance days.Tuition paying families have access to bus transportation to and from school by subscribing to our Transportation Plan. By signing and submitting the Transportation Plan Form along with payment, tuition paying families will have access to daily bus transportation.Option 1 – One payment of $400 due at registrationOption 2 – Two payments of $200; one due at registration, one due 30 days prior to second semesterOption 3 – Four payments of $100; one due at registration, three additional payments due prior to the beginning of the following quarter.
