What are your Kindergarten registration fees?

  • Here the kindergarten pays half what the other kids do, even though it's all-day. I think it was around $85 for us when DS was starting, but it's gone up since then. And that's not counting the supplies, etc.

  • Maybe it is because I live in a smaller area. My property taxes aren't enough apparently.

  • PRIVATE school is $100..... and we live in a very small town (and its a very small private school) I haaaaaaaaaaaate the local public school, highly unlikely there's fees though since it's a pretty poor area. And of course tons of supplies and other hidden fees

  • Public school? Here it was nothing. I mean there was optional PTA-$30 Class party fund $20 Yearbook- $15 .... but no fee to register.

  • No registration fee here either, and we live in a small town. Now we would have to pay a busing fee if we wanted our daughter to ride the bus, but seeing as we live literally 5 doors down from the school, I doubt she'll be doing that.

  • I did a GOOGLE search on the district's fees and found a news article from last year. This is a DISCOUNT..LOL. They dropped from $200.

  • At our school the reg. fee for kindergarten is$175.00 and for 1st-8th grades it is $240.00.I always thought that all schools have a reg. fee until now. Wow....Wish I didn't have to pay.
