  • Some public school systems have a preschool program built in. I bet they could give you all the info you need.

  • Not really.... Preschool normally cost 120 and up per week. It's crazy how much it cost and all of the programs are being removed. I currently pay 115 because I recommended three people to the school. Hope this help

  • The place I had my son in while I was going to community college was $800 a month, WITH the student discount. I have since quit school and am a stay home mom; at least until my youngest (4 years old) is in school.

  • Ours will be $75/month, 3 days per week for 2 1/2 hours. There are some that are $50 and some that are $250. A lot of churches in our town have them and they may be flexible on tuition if you need assistance. You generally do not have to be a member of the church and they teach all of the prep for school as well as light bible studies without it being too much for them to handle. Hope you find one that works!

  • Ours is 131 a month. I know another program that's only 98. But aside from head start I don't know of any financial programs to help with the cost. Call a local preschool and ask, I'm sure they'd know the direction to point you.

  • 75-125 a month depending on the program and your area. In our area, Head Start is a joke. Ghetto trash ass people.
