We understand that the expense of preschool can be a strain on a family’s budget. We strive to keep our tuition as low as possible while continuing to provide a high-quality preschool program. Our Stewards Scholarship program was established in 2013 to help bridge the early learning access gap in our community. Scholarships are available annually to eligible children whom would not otherwise have the opportunity to attend our school due to financial hardship.
Stewards Scholarships are financed through donations. Most the scholarship funds have been provided by people from our community who care about children and who believe that our school provides a strong early learning program, a great first school experience and a place where children can grow as they learn actively about the environment and participate in our community.
Environment-based early childhood education helps children to become problem solvers and to develop key critical thinking skills that support their success in math, science, language, social studies, and the arts. Helping eligible families through the Stewards Scholarship Fund will allow more children to have this powerful foundation and is an important part of our program. Donations may be made to the Stewards Scholarship Fund at any time.
For the 2017-18 school year, scholarships will be awarded based upon financial need and may provide between $500 and $1,000 of total tuition costs, but no more than 50% of total program tuition. The family is responsible for providing the balance of the remaining tuition, together with application fee and supply fees as outlined in the school’s handbook. Our school director will receive applications and submit them to the Scholarship Committee for review. Any personal financial documents provided during the application process will remain confidential and be returned or destroyed after scholarships are awarded.
