Garden Scholarship Fund

The Garden Scholarship Fund is a program available to families with children enrolled at TCGP.   The purpose of the Fund is to provide some financial assistance and/or flexible payment schedules to families who might otherwise not be able to enroll their children at TCGP.  This fund is a needs-based program and availability is dependent upon donations from parents, alumni, school fundraisers and outside sources.   Applications for scholarship are available in the preschool office and are due at the time of application submission.  TCGP families are welcome to add scholarship donations when paying their tuition (please add note: round-up for scholarship donation).
