Admissions and Fees

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

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 or discounted services to 19 children annually. (Rules and restrictions do apply)

To keep to our belief that a quality preschool program be accessible to all families; our full cost tuition, which we keep below market rate, and schedules are below.   In addition, we do offer discounts up to 15% to those families who may need assistance with our rate.  Please see the Director for details. 

We believe that a quality preschool education should be affordable and fit your needs.  Therefore; we offer a wide range of schedule choices to meet your needs.  We do not charge a waitlist fee, registration fee, or deposit.
