There are three options for tuition: free through Aspire, free through subsidy/scholarship, or parent paid.
Both the Aspire program and state subsidy/scholarship pays tuition. Parents must already be enrolled in the scholarship program to be accepted.
The Aspire program pays full tuition for 1) low income families, 2) families who speak another language at home, 3) for foster children or homeless families, or 4) children with IEPs. Low income families qualify if you can show proof with a tax return, or that you are on WIC, Snap, or Food Stamps. If you are interested, send an email to Ms. Bonnie at WeePeople.Us @gmail.com to discuss your specific circumstances. This program is part of the PreK expansion initiative.
For families who do not qualify for free prek, parent paid is $230 per week.
I am an approved Maryland preschool in the Southgate Elementary district.
Tuition includes state approved preschool (9-3:30) and includes before and after school care (8-5) Sept through June, and includes all food, snacks, arts, crafts, and activities. Some field trips may incur an additional fee. Parents must 1)ensure their children attend on a regular basis, 2) supply their child a set of extra clothes, 3) appropriate jackets/coats and shoes for outdoor activities, and 4) abide by handbook policies.
New families must submit the following before a child can be taken into care:
Deposit, $50 fee due to register and hold your spot.
Signed handbook, contract, and permission slips.
Emergency contacts. You fill this out. If there are any special circumstances, your doctor must also sign the back.
Medical physical, completed by your doctor.
Vaccine History, completed by doctor.
Verification for free tuition (only due at the beginning of the year for Aspire).
Before school begins, parents must register on Kidkare, which is the food program software; Wonderschool, to log in and out; and Teaching Strategies, to receive lessons when the child is absent. I will register you on each and you will get an email to accept.
Others as needed, depending upon circumstances.
