Tuition & Fees


Application fee

The non-refundable Application fee of $150 per child is due when submitting the Enrollment Application Form. This fee is waived for currently enrolled families.

Enrollment fee

The non-refundable Enrollment fee is equivalent to one month’s full tuition and is due upon receipt for open enrollment admissions.  If this fee is not received by invoiced due date, the class space will be forfeited and made available in open enrollment and/or to wait list families.

Program-Supply fee

The non-refundable Program-Supply fee is dedicated to your child’s supplies and materials provided by the school for the coming year.  This fee is billed in advance of the school year and due upon receipt. The fee for the 2021-2022 year is as follows: children enrolled in the 3-mornings/wk program – $290; children enrolled in the 5-mornings/wk program – $315.

Service Alternative fee

All families are required to volunteer 6 hours on a TCG committee or pay a $300 non-refundable Service Alternative fee by November 1, 2021. 

Tuition schedule

TCG tuition is paid in ten (10) monthly payments from July 1, 2021 to April 1, 2022. Starting with the 10% enrollment fee, at the time a family accepts the placement offered for the upcoming year, this fee secures a child’s placement for the year.  Then ten monthly payments remain, from August 1, 2021 through April 1, 2022. Below is the tuition schedule for 2021-2022.

*TCG offers an annual tuition discount:  A 5% tuition discount is available for those families paying the full annual tuition by July 1, 2021.  The tuition discount applies only to the remaining tuition balance, but does not apply to the application, enrollment, program-supply or service alternative fees.

Garden Scholarship Fund*

The Garden Scholarship Fund is a program available to families with children enrolled at TCG.   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 TCG.  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.

* This year, we are unable to offer financial assistance.  We look forward to the return of the scholarship fund in the near future.
