Applications are being accepted for children who will be turning 3 and 4 years old during the 2021-2022 school year. Tuition for the 2021-22 school year is tentatively $7,020 (plus a 3% processing fee). This tuition amount is not final until the Darien Board of Education budget process has been finalized. At this time, ELP does not have a preschool option for children turning 5 in September – December 2022.
Parents will be notified/emailed by email that their application was received.
Tuition for the 2020-2021 school year is $6,850.00 (plus a 3% processing fee). We anticipate a 3% increase in tuition for the 2021-2022 school year. However, the final tuition amount will be set by the Board of Education during its budgeting process. Upon acceptance to the program, payment of your nonrefundable deposit ($650) and the remainder of your tuition payments can be made by Visa or MasterCard. After payment of your initial deposit, the remaining balance can be paid with two options: payment in full by 8/31/2020 (you will receive a 2% discount for this option) or in three recurring payments on 8/31/21, 11/30/21 and 2/28/22. If you have any questions regarding payment, please contact Celeste Forster, our Accountant at firstname.lastname@example.org
* If school shuts down due to COVID and ELP becomes virtual, parents who decide to withdraw their children from the program will be refunded a prorated amount based upon their attendance in the program. The non-refundable deposit will not be included in this proration.
