Pacific Preschool Enrollment and Fees
Pacific Preschool is currently accepting applications for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 school years. If you are interested in having your child attend Pacific Preschool, please complete the Pacific Preschool Interest Form.
All children must be 3 years old upon enrollment, be able to use the bathroom independently, and meet the state-mandated vaccination requirements for preschoolers. Children must have all forms and vaccine requirements completed prior to the first day of school.
Age-appropriate preschool students enrolled by January 1 have priority for enrollment in kindergarten at Pacific School the following fall.
Tuition and Fees
Our preschool offers four options:
There is also a $100 enrollment deposit due for each student which is waved for students receiving free tuition. If applicable, the deposit is due each year, even for returning students.
Students enrolled 3 or 4 days per week may drop in on their non-scheduled days for a drop-in fee of $45 per day, which must be paid in advance in the office. Advance warning to the preschool teachers is preferable but not required. Students may not be dropped off on non-scheduled days without payment of the drop-in fee.
Tuition is due on the first of each month, September through May. Families are encouraged to either provide the office with 9 post dated checks or use their own bank's autopay feature to schedule all 9 payments in advance. Families will receive electronic invoices by email only if necessary. If payment is greater than 30 days late, the student will not be able to attend the program until all fees are paid in full.
Pacific Preschool does not change tuition rates midyear. We will give at least 30 days’ advance notice prior to any rate change. We do not give refunds on tuition, and families are expected to pay tuition even if they are away temporarily on vacation. Families must provide 30 days notice if discontinuing the program.
Thanks to a grant from the state, we offer a limited number of tuition-free preschool spaces each year. Please fill out the appropriate confidential forms if you would like to apply for one of Pacific Preschool’s tuition-free spaces. You must substantiate your income* with pay stubs from your employer(s) or equivalent documentation. If your income* is below the following levels, or if you are already participating in the CalFresh program, you are eligible for a tuition-free space. Families interested in our tuition-free spaces should contact Molly Tierney in the school office about openings and requirements.
After Care Scholarships
Families participating in the tuition-free preschool program also have the option to apply for a scholarship to attend afterschool care for free from 12:30 p.m. to 2:40 p.m. each day. To receive a scholarship, families must explain their reason for seeking longer care, such as the parents’ need to work, attend school, or care for other dependents, or the student’s need for greater exposure to the English language. Students must also have an appropriate level of developmental maturity to attend a longer-day program. The after care scholarship program has been extended by the Board for 2019-20, but may not be available in future years.
