Tuition

Tuition at Young Wonders Preschool is based on an annual amount divided into 12 equal payments (September – August). All tuition payments are due on the 15th of the month preceding the month to which it applies. 

Monthly tuition must be paid in full, including days missed due to vacation, illness or school closures. If tuition is not received by the first day of the month in question, your child will not be admitted to school. 

Enrollment fees and tuition deposits are non-refundable. There is no fee for completing our student application.
