Financial Aid and Scholarships:
Participation buyout option- If you would like your child to attend the Morning Program but you cannot participate in the classroom, you may hire an approved substitute at the current rate. All other parent responsibilities are the same. Please see the Parent Handbook for associated fees and procedures for buyout. No more than 15% of families per year are allowed to partake of this option.
Tuition statements and payment- Monthly tuition statements are distributed on the first day of each month. Please place checks in the Tuition mailbox at school. Parents are responsible for paying each month’s tuition by the 5th of each month. After that date, a $10 late fee will be assessed. Students whose tuition is 30 days past due may not continue to attend Albany Preschool except by arrangement with the Treasurer and the President of the Board.
Tuition for the regular school year is divided into 10 equal payments (see above for amounts). Tuition for the summer session is set the winter before the session starts and is due in one lump sum in mid-May. Tuition is not pro-rated for holidays, breaks, illnesses, or family vacations.
All families are responsible for yearly tuition, payable in 10 monthly allotments. A family taking a leave of absence is no exception. Tuition is the same regardless of how many days a child misses due to illness, vacation, school holidays, or any other reason. To hold a space at the Preschool, the family must pay tuition promptly and in full.
Additional fees, discounts and scholarships:
- Out–of-Albany residents pay a $20 surcharge per month.
- A sibling discount is available. The amount of the discount depends on the annual budget; please ask the Membership Chairperson for more information.
- Scholarship: If a family cannot afford to pay the full tuition, scholarships, which are awarded based on financial need, may be available. Contact the Enrollment Coordinator for an application. All decisions are made by the Scholarship Committee based on the number of families applying and the money available in the annual budget. The current scholarship allocation is a monthly tuition discount of up to $85.
