Hello and Welcome! If you are on this page then you are looking for one of the most important things in your child's life: A safe place away from home where they can make good friends, begin to exploring our world with curiosity, and gain the confidence, and social/emotional skills to enter the following years of elementary school and beyond. You have come to the right place.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge – for knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world and all there ever will be to know and understand.” - Albert Einstein
Tours: we are happy to schedule tours during Open Play on the weekends or occasionally during preschool hours. Please email me at PortlandPreschooloftheArts@gmail.com to schedule a tour.
We accept new students year-round as long as there is space available. Children ages 3.5 years-old to 5 years-old welcome. All kids should be fully potty-trained. We understand accidents will still happen! Is your child not quite 3.5 but you feel they would thrive in our preschool environment? Please feel free to contact me and we can talk about a trial month.
Monday - Friday 9:00 - 12:30
Monthly fees are as follows:
1 day/week (Summer only) = $150/month
2 days/week = $275/month
3 days/week = $375/month
4 days/week = $500/month
5 days/week = $625/month
There is a yearly materials fee of $150 per student ($50 for summer-session-only students) Your materials fee acts as an enrollment fee to hold your spot in the preschool and is non-refundable.
2 sessions/days per week minimum enrollment is required. While we do have a 2 day a week option, we encourage 3 days or more to support students educational growth, confidence, and social development, with this in mind we allow a limited number of 2 day per week students each year.
We will discount %10 for bulk payments of 6 months or more.
We actively seek diversity in our classroom and offer 10% off to families who add diversity to our classroom.
For your convenience, annual tuition is broken into equal monthly installments. A full month's tuition is required for holding your child's spot in the preschool.
The first installment + materials fee is due with enrollment. Each subsequent payment is due on the 1st of each month.
If you would like to hold your child's enrollment over the summer without enrolling in the summer session, there is a $150/month holding fee and allows up to 3 drop off days per summer month for your child as space is available.
*All fees and tuitions are non-refundable. We do not prorate for closures, absences, or breaks although we DO allow for roll-over days for illness. We believe every child deserves access to a preschool education. If you are having trouble making your monthly payments, please come and talk to me!
