Tuition and Fees
The non-refundable registration fee is due at the time of enrollment. The one-time activity fee is due with the first month’s tuition, this includes the cost of special programs/field trips/supplies during the year. The first monthly tuition is due by September 1st. Thereafter tuition is due on the first of each month through May 1, with a total of nine payments. Tuition is based on an annual fee that is divided into 9 even payments. Some month have more days, some less. You may either mail payment to the school office, pay electronically online, or send the tuition payment to school in your child’s take-home folder.
Tuition may also be paid through the “Facts” automatic withdrawal program. This program lets you choose an 11, 10 or 9-month option to pay and you choose from two different withdrawal dates towards the beginning or the end of each month.

Children enrolled in Hope Lutheran Preschool must be toilet trained and able to independently use the restroom.
A light snack will be provided each day. Children may bring a special snack to share with the class on the day of their birthday celebration.
Conferences will be scheduled in the fall and again in the spring. School will not be in session on conference days.
At Hope Lutheran Preschool we think of the term “discipline” as the teaching of self-control, Christian attitudes, orderliness, and efficiency. All discipline will be completed in a loving and caring manner with forgiveness rather than punishment as a goal.
Through direct, caring communication with the child, the teacher will explain the expectation of appropriate behavior and coach the child in some alternate behaviors or strategies.
The parent will be contacted regarding prolonged inappropriate behavior that hurts or destroys. A visit with the principal may follow behavior that harms or destroys.
Summer Preschool is a program that runs for 8 weeks during the month of June and July. Each spring interest surveys are sent home that determine the availability of the program.
