Tuition and Fees

Tuition

The Our School commitment has been and remains to be to maintain the quality of education for its children and families.  This means providing professional salaries to staff and a large amount of materials and equipment for children.  The session fee schedules are “sliding scale” so families pay based upon income, thereby allowing families with varied income levels to enroll.  The schedules represent the current costs of offering quality education, but do not represent the real costs.

We also participate in the Colorado Child Care Assistance program (CCCAP), as well as offer our own additional financial assistance by application.

Fees

We charge an application fee of $65.00 for new families.  This fee is waived for current returning families. A $475 annual administrative fee and a $225 annual building fee will be charged for the 2017-2018 school year in addition to tuition.

Payments

All families pay an initial deposit and then make payments on a 12 month schedule that cover annual tuition, the administrative fee, and the building fee.  Other payment plans (one annual payment, bi-annual payment, etc.) are available upon request.

Students who are enrolled during the school year have their tuition and fees pro-rated for the beginning date of their enrollment.

Financial Assistance

To fulfill Our School’s unyielding commitment to a quality environment for children and their families, Our School has both an extensive financial assistance program and a supplemental financial assistance program  These programs are for those families who strongly prefer Our School but cannot pay the annual fees through their own income or by any other reasonable means.  All funds used for financial assistance and supplemental financial assistance derive from Our School’s annual fundraiser.  No member’s tuition payment pays for anyone else’s tuition.  Families can apply or reapply for further financial assistance whenever their economic circumstances change. Financial Assistance Application

Our School Preschool is a tax-exempt, non-profit organization. Our budget, which is available for your inspection, reflects that our primary commitment is to maintain the quality of education for our students. To ensure the program’s quality and to meet the parents’ high expectations, the Board of Directors thoroughly and carefully examines the budget before voting on it each year. Our School’s fiscal year begins July 1st and ends June 30th.
