Admissions and Fees

At Intercommunal Pre-School we believe that a quality preschool program should be affordable and available to all families.  Our program has a contract with the State of California; Department of Education to offer free and discounted rates to 25 children annually. (Rules and restrictions do apply)

There is no fee to be placed on our waiting list which can be a year long.  To be placed on our waiting list, we require a tour with our Director, and a visit with your child.   We are happy to enroll children year-round if we have openings, however most of our enrollment occurs in July for start dates in August.  

To keep to our belief that a quality preschool program be accessible to all families; our full cost non-subsidized tuition is kept below market rate.   We do not charge registration fee, or deposit.
