Tuition and Other Fees

We recognize the impact of daycare on your family’s budget. That’s why we do everything in our power to provide the best value. We take great pride in offering a superior educational program that combines dedicated teachers and supportive staff, a carefully created physical environment, and a curriculum that is specifically designed to maximize the social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of the children in our care.

While our tuition is  very competitive with other well-known preschool and  child care centers our rates are typically lower. However, we may be higher  than in-home care. But we promise you, our teachers are highly trained and qualified. We develop and maintain a specific curriculum for each age group to optimize your child’s education. We exceed the strict licensing requirements, building integrity and cleanliness, teacher-to-child ratio, dietary guidelines, and  curriculum. Most of all, Pine Tree Preschool and Childcare center will feel like it's your child's "Home Away From Home".
