Enrollment and Tuition

We encourage you and your child to come spend a morning hour with us as you explore your options. We typically host prospective families between January and March. Contact us to set up an appointment. We would be happy to schedule a visit to meet you and your child. Our visits are generally in the morning and are from 9-10 AM.

Our application process runs from January 1 to April 1, with all applications due by April 1. Returning families are enrolled first, followed by siblings and legacies, and then new families. We like to have the enrollment process completed by the 1st of April so we can notify families of the schedules we have available for them. We enroll children for full days (8:30 to 3:00) or mornings (8:30 to 12:00, with pickup after lunch). Scheduling options range from three mornings to four full days.

As we develop our class group, we consider your scheduling requests, the availability of space, as well as the age and gender of your child. We do our best to accommodate all of your requests as we strive to create a well-balanced group. If we are unable to accommodate your child as we create our class list for the upcoming school year, we will contact you and place your child on our waiting list (unless you request that s/he not be on it). We will contact families to offer a spot for their child at Quarry Hill School as space becomes available. Thank you for your interest and understanding.

Our program is designed for and is most successful for children 3-6 years old. Our expectation is that children will be 3 and toilet-trained when they begin Quarry Hill School. Any rare exceptions are made on a case by case basis, depending on available space.

Tuition for the academic year is based on 35 weeks of school. Quarry Hill School partners with the local public school districts as an approved Vermont Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program. All children who attend who are 3, 4, or 5 by September 1st 2021 receive public funding for 10 hours of preschool each week. Parents/Guardians are responsible for additional tuition.

For 2021-2022 additional tuition ranges from $194.25/year for 3 mornings per week, to a full-time rate of $8741.25/year for 5 full days per week. Tuition is contracted after we receive your application and a schedule is confirmed. Your deposit is due June 15th, 2021. Receipt of your deposit will confirm your child's enrollment at Quarry Hill School. The remaining balance will be 9 equal payments, due the 10th of each month, September 2021 - May 2022.
