Financial Assistance

Aldrich is pleased to offer financial assistance for those families that qualify. Tuition assistance amounts are awarded according to the family’s financial situation and the needs of the child.  Priority is given to children who are four or five by September 1st: younger children will be considered under special circumstances. Awards are given for the two and three day programs. Recipients in the five morning or five afternoon programs receive an award equivalent to a child in a three day class, and the family is responsible for paying the difference.  Applicants must also determine their eligibility for Families First School Readiness Program and Pathways Early Learning Scholarships.

These scholarships are made available through fundraising events held each year and donations toward financial assistance. Applications will be considered on a first come, first served basis as funds allow.  

Withdrawal Policy

If a child must be withdrawn for any reason, a 30 day written notice is required. Tuition is still due during this 30 day period.
