How Much Does Preschool Cost?

Due to our involvement with initiatives like Step Up To Quality, Universal Pre-Kindergarten and the Ohio Early Childhood Expansion, we are able to offer a variety of discounts to our families who attend Parma Preschool.  Read the information below to find out what your tuition will be.

  

Tuition assistance is determined by our eligibility and current contracts.  They are subject to change in the event that our contract with ODE or the county changes.  You will be notified of any changes in writing.

  1. Find your household size and income on the chart.
  2.  If your yearly income falls into one of the first 4 columns, you qualify for 5 days-a-week preschool.  Tuition is shown in the yellow row at the bottom.  It is based on income and family size.
  3. If you DO NOT meet the income guidelines under the 200% category, you can register for one of our other preschool classes, which are eligible for the UPK discount.  For information on each program, see below!

State Funded Preschool Application

 

Universal Pre-Kindergarten

How do we apply?

Parma Preschool families who live in Cuyahoga County are eligible for UPK.  An application must be filled out and submitted with registration paperwork.  The application also requires family income verification (tax return or recent W2s).  As with all paperwork completed at Parma Preschool, this information is strictly confidential.

 

How Does the UPK Discount Work?

Once all paperwork is submitted and approved, the county will begin to pay 1/3 of your tuition!  Your reaming balance will be adjusted once the county payments kick in (usually December).  Until the country payments are made you will be responsible for paying the entire monthly tuition listed.
