My DS goes to a private Christian preschool in my church. I am paying $245 a month. He is going 3 days a week (Mon/Weds/Friday) and will be there from 9-1245. It is a major price hike from when my DD went. When she went, it was $165 for the same days but she went from 9-12. Staying the extra 45 mins was optional (called Lunch Bunch and was $45 more).

It's free for everyone if you can get them signed up before everyone else. The classes fill up super quick, here.

 Public elementary schools here offer preschool for free, but space is always limited.  if you're too late and you still want them to go to preschool, it's $130/weekly for 5 week days.

Ours is $350 a month (so $3150/ year).  Plus $75 registration fee and $125 misc/book fee that are both once a year fees.  This is the tuition for ALL grades, Pre-K through 6, that our school covers.  This is up a little from last year (I think it was $300 a month last year).

We don't offer half day or part time- if you don't send your child M-F full days, that's fine, but the cost is the same.

I've only ever paid for my youngest. My older three went in a different district where Pre K was in the public schools. Here I paid $120 a month for 3 half days a week.

Our school district offers preschool for free if you live in the district.  If you live outside the district it is $100/month.  There is a morning session and an afternoon session M-Th.  There is no cap on the number of students and the children are regular ed, at risk, and special ed all combined in one classroom.  In an average year there are at least 12-15 children in each session and there are 3 classrooms.
