Financial Aid

Multi Child Discounts

To be eligible for multi-child rates with a child in preschool, you must have more than one full-time child enrolled at MRA North. If you have multiple children attending the school and any of the children are in preschool, you must pay the full preschool tuition rate. Your additional full-time children of any grade will qualify for the multi child discount. 

Reserving a Spot

If your child is under the age of three at the start of our school year, but you would like to reserve a spot for when he/she turns three, regular tuition payments are required by board policy to keep the students' reservation in the classroom.

Is Your Child Ready for Preschool? 

Determining whether or not your child is ready for preschool is a big decision, but there are some key indicators explained below that can help you to decide. 

1. How old is your child? 

● If your child is 3 years old on or before September 30, they are eligible for enrollment in the PreK 3 program 

● If your child is 4 years old on or before September 30, they are eligible for enrollment in the PreK 4 program 

2. Is your child potty trained? 

● Accidents are expected, particularly at the beginning of the school year as your child transitions into the school routine. 

● However, if your child has an accident 1 or 2 times per week consistently after the transition period, they are not considered “potty trained” yet. 

● Daytime use of pull-ups is an indication that the child is not fully potty trained. 

● Teachers will gladly assist a child who has had an accident, but we are not equipped to change diapers or help a child with toilet paper on a regular basis. 

● Potty trained children are able to pull pants and underwear up and down on their own and are independent when cleaning themselves, in normal circumstances. 

● Children should be able to wash their hands independently, although they may need reminders. 

3. Can your child make sure their needs are met? 

● Children should be able to speak clearly enough that other people can understand what they are saying. 

● Children should be able to put on their coat and shoes and fasten their pants independently. 

● Children should be comfortable telling an adult that they need assistance. 

Our preschool classes are designed to be gentle introductions to the academic environment. Small children learn the routines of working in a group setting: sharing, waiting their turn, walking in a line, and following instructions, with tender, loving encouragement. Children are not expected to be entirely self-sufficient upon entering the classroom, but self-sufficiency will be taught and encouraged, particularly at the end of PreK3 and in PreK4. 

A note about separation anxiety: 

Many, if not most, children have a few tears upon the initial separation from their parents in the morning. Additionally, when students encounter a sibling on the playground, a similar reaction can occur. However, this is normally short-lived and will resolve itself as children acclimate to 

the school routine and environment. This is not an indication that your child is not ready for Preschool. 

If the child persists with these behaviors after a normal “transition” period, a meeting with parents and administrators may be set. 

Please do not hesitate to call the school should you have any questions.
