Pre-registration determines the order in which you’ll register for 2017–2018

the pre-registered families.


Registration will take place on Friday, February 24.

If you pre-registered, check your email as of Friday, February 17 for your Registration Confirmation with your assigned arrival time (one for each student). If you did not pre-register, you are welcome to arrive at 11:00 a.m.

Download the 2017–2018 Registration Packet (pages 1–5). You can print it and fill it in by hand, or use Adobe Acrobat Reader to fill in the information digitally, print it, and add your signatures (https://get.adobe.com/reader). We also have printed copies available in the hallway for you.

Be sure to bring your checkbook for your $70 non-refundable registration fee, and two printed photos of your child (2″ x 3″ recommended).

Find the answers to your questions on our Register for Classes page, or contact a class coordinator.

Changes for the 2017–2018 School Year

Due to increasing costs, the board recently voted to increase the tuition rate at Community Preschool as of the 2017–2018 school year. The current rate is $3.50 per hour, and it will be increased to $4.00 per hour. If you have any questions about this change, please feel free to contact our President, Hanna.

Beginning next Fall, Mrs. Martinez’s Afternoon 4s Class will have the assistance of a co-teacher, and will require only one parent-helper per class. Therefore, the tuition for this class will be slightly higher at $4.50 per hour. If your family is unable to offer as much time to volunteer for parent-helping, this might be a good option for you.

The February issue of The Parent Helper newsletter is posted now.

Fourth Quarter Tuition
Due Friday, February 10

Tuition for the fourth quarter is due by Friday, February 10, 2017. Please place your tuition payment in the Treasurer’s lock box, located on the northwest wall in the main school hallway. Make checks payable to “Community Preschool” and add your child’s name and class in the memo of the check to ensure correct credit to your account.

Click here to visit the Tuition and Schedule page and find the tuition amount for your child’s class.

Contact the treasurer Emily M. with any questions about tuition. If you are having difficulty with paying tuition according to the schedule, please contact us immediately. We are willing to work with you, but it is best to have a plan before tuition is due and late fees are incurred.
