The youngest children (petits), aged 2.5 to 3, have the option of attending 3 mornings a week, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from 8:45 am until noon. This entry level for young preschool corresponds to the Petite Section of the French National Curriculum.

5 Mornings: $12,400 ($1,240/monthly installment)
Children are encouraged to attend every school day, but have the option, before Kindergarten, to leave at noon. This option corresponds to the Petite Section and Moyenne Section of the French national curriculum.

Five full days is the required attendance for Kindergarten and an option for any preschool student. Full-day attendance is 8:45 am to 3:05 pm for preschool and 8:30 am to 3:15 pm for kindergarten, which corresponds to the

New Family Fee: $1,800


A one-time New Family Fee for families whose children have not been previously enrolled in the school will be invoiced in the amount of $1,800 upon receipt of the enrollment agreement and can be paid in installments with your tuition payment.

Sibling Discount


*In most cases, sibling tuition is reduced by $250 or $25 per month. (For 3 mornings preschool, it is reduced by $100 or $10 per month.) Some parents choose to donate this discount back to the school. If you choose this option, it is tax-deductible and can be counted as an annual giving donation to the school.
