Effective for the 2016-2017 school year, Preschool at the Creek is pleased to offer the first month (or any remaining portion thereof) of a student’s tuition at no charge, once the registration cost has been paid in full. This means that new and returning students who register before the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year will receive September’s tuition free. Students who register after the beginning of the year will receive – after they have paid their registration fee – the tuition for their first full or partial month of attendance free.
