How Much Does Preschool Cost?

Preschool is very important in the early development of your child from an educational and social perspective.  Although preschool, which is geared toward four year olds, is not actually required, it can be very helpful to prepare your child for kindergarten and elementary.  The social skills alone will be beneficial to your child’s learning process.  Because many parents work, half-day preschool or classes that meet only two or three days a week may not be an option.  Some kids may be in preschool for 40-50 hours per week, but the preschool curriculum only takes about 20-30 hours to complete.  The rest of the time will be spent in before- or after-school care, snack time, lunch time, and rest time.
