Stepping Stones Preschool Cares About Kids

Classes & Tuition Information

 Registration Announcement 2019 – 2020

One of the most unique experiences that our school has to offer is the Parent Participation Program.  Although not required, it is a great option to consider if it fits your needs as a family. The participation program allows parents or caregivers the opportunity to aide in the classrooms, nursery, playroom, or kitchen and enter the exciting world of a preschooler while saving money on tuition.  Being a participating parent is a lot of fun and means you are a part of what makes our school such an enriching experience. You will meet friends and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Participating Parent Details:

  • If your child attends school 2 days a week, you must aide 2 times a month to receive the reduced tuition,
  • If your child attends school 3 days a week, you must aide 3 times a month to receive the reduced tuition,
  • If your child attends school 5 days a week or more (in case of children who go 3 full days vs. 5 mornings a week), you must aide 4 times a month to receive the reduced tuition.
  • If you aide more than the required number of aide days for reduced tuition, you receive an additional $10 off your tuition for each extra day.

To be a participating parent the following items must be maintained at the school office as required by the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) and Arizona Department of Licensing.  All of these items are fairly easy to obtain and we are available to help you if you have any questions or concerns.  Please see the Helpful Forms tab if you would like to download the necessary forms to complete the following list:

  • Signed Parent Information/Immunization Verification Form
  • A Copy of Your High School (or Higher) Diploma, GED, or Transcripts
  • Two Reference Letters
  • A Copy of a Negative Mantoux Tuberculosis (TB) Test
  • Fingerprint Clearance Card by the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS)*
    We are able to provide and help you complete the necessary paperwork to obtain a fingerprint clearance card. DPS charges $65 to process the paperwork and the school does not cover this cost.
  • Signed Criminal History Affidavit (this is included in the Fingerprint Clearance Card process)

Scholarships:

As a four star Quality First school we will have limited scholarships available for the 2018-19 school year based on financial need. To determine if you qualify, come in the office for information or an application form.
