Preschool sessions are held on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8:50 a.m. to 11:20 a.m. Tuition is $30 per week* and class size is limited to 30 children. The Preschool Program is limited to two-year or partial two-year enrollment, as long as the child is age eligible.

The Toddler Program is held on Monday from 9:15 to 10:45 a.m. Tuition for this program is $6 per session.* Parents or caregivers are required to stay for the entire session. Children may attend the Toddler Program for two years if age eligible.
A random drawing of names to determine enrollment will take place on Friday, Feb. 8 at 8 a.m. in the lobby outside of the preschool classroom. The public is welcome to attend. This drawing was established to determine enrollment since traditionally, the number of children who register for the program exceeds available spaces. Names not selected in the drawing will be placed on a waiting list.
Three Tri-County Early Childhood Careers instructors supervise the Children’s Center programs and are assisted by students in the Early Childhood Careers major. The Tri-County Children’s Center is an NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) accredited program.
