Background information about the program: The state allows school districts to run such programs because research has shown that early childhood instructional programs are beneficial for children. WISD does not make a profit from the tuition-based PreK. All payments are used to pay for staff salaries and supplies. Staffing is based on student enrollment, but if enrollment numbers increase, instructional aides are also provided to keep the adult-to-student ratio low.
How are Tuition payments handled? There is a $200 non-refundable registration fee and 10 tuition payments due for the 2022-23 school year (Aug. - May). The first payment is due by 3:00 pm on the first day of school. All other payments (PreK 3 is $530 per month and Prek 4 is $500 per month) are due on the first of each month. A $20 late fee is added to the amount on the fifth day of the month and then a $40 late fee is added to the amount if not paid on the seventh day of the month. (Because we rely upon parent/guardian payments to pay our staff members, non-payments will result in the removal of the child from the program.)
Important Dates and Information: The tuition-based PreK program follows the WISD school calendar. The tuition-based PreK program runs from 7:45 a.m. - 2:45 p.m. each school day. Students can be dropped off as early as 7:15 each morning. Our tuition-based classes meet in the classrooms. Dismissal for all BHP students starts at 2:30 each afternoon. For our PreK students, parents are allowed to pick up their children in either the car line or the front foyer of the school, if you prefer to park and pick them up. Staff members will always accompany our PreK students as they meet parents/guardians for pick-up.
