Realistic Preschool Expectations?

Part time children pay $31 a day; Closed 2 weeks at Christmas with no fee; Closed March break with no fee for clients;

no holidays allowed (must pay to keep spot); no sick days have to pay for booked days no exeptions.

Closed all statitory holiday...clients must pay for the days though. Does this sound average?

Sounds about average, my daughter is part-time and I pay $85/day regardless if we're there are not. Just remember it's worth it if you have peace of mind.

Most preschools and day cares will charge you regardless of whether or not your child is there. My daughter is only 17 months, but the day care she goes to has preschool and even a private school K-12. They try to keep them all on the same schedule. They had a Christmas break which I think was about 2 weeks, They have spring break for a week. Then they have federal holidays off. The prekinder program is free in Florida so you only pay if your child stays the afternoon. The 3 year old preschool students do pay however.

That sounds right on! I am the Director of a parent cooperative nursery school and the parents pay an average of $30 per day. The monthly tuition is based on how many days per week you intend to send your child, and you pay that regardless of how many days your child actually attends or how many holidays or breaks occur in any given month.
