"Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood."
Tuition is based on how many sessions your child is enrolled in. One session is half a day.
The monthly rate is $85/session for sessions beyond the first three. The first three sessions an eligible child attends are paid for by the State’s Public Preschool funding, and are charged a different rate to match the funding amount (currently $3178 per school year per child). This is intended to cover 10 hours of preschool attendance each week for the school year. Ten hours is about 1.5 days (3 sessions) at our school.
This disparity in tuition rates is intended to both meet the goals of the Public Preschool funding program and to keep out-of- pocket costs to families low. Example: If your child is enrolled in 4 session/week (i.e. 2 full days), your tuition payment will be $85/month, as the first three sessions are covered by the State funding. (note: families must apply for State funding each year; Kerry will provide paperwork during registration.)
Families will receive an emailed statement each month from the preschool’s bookkeeper, Davis Associates Business and Tax Services. Each month’s payment, from September through June, is due on the date indicated on the invoice. You are required to pay each month in full regardless of absences caused by such things as personal vacations, illnesses, or public holidays.
Tuition is due to the preschool’s bookkeeper, address below, however tuition checks should be made out to Lincoln Cooperative Preschool. Please indicate on your check what payment is for (for example, “January tuition”).
Tuition checks should be mailed to:

If you alter your child’s attendance schedule, be sure to inform the Treasurer. If you sign up for a preschool or afternoon slot and later decide to drop it, please give one month’s notice before you drop. We need time to advertise the space.
