SCHOLARSHIP FUND UPDATE

Hello Peace Lutheran Church!

I have been receiving some follow up questions regarding the scholarship fund. I am happy to answer these questions, provide more information and I am grateful that there have already been a couple of donations towards the preschool scholarship fund for the 2020-2021 program year.

One question was in regards to “What does preschool cost?” Monthly preschool tuition is anywhere from $390 to $805, depending on the child’s weekly schedule needs. Full time care for a two year old costs $805 per month and a five half day schedule for a 4 year old costs $390 per month.

The big question has been, “What is the need for the scholarship fund?” This is a great question. I am going to answer the question by providing a couple of examples of children (both prospective and already enrolled) who have requested scholarships for this year.
 
Scholarships are typically 25% of a child’s monthly tuition so I used that number for the following examples.
 
A child is enrolled for full time care, which costs $785 per month. A scholarship would really help this single mom be able to afford this care and thus allow her to work full time and provide for her family. So a scholarship amount for the year for this child would be $1,962.50.
 
Two children are enrolled for full time care, which costs $1,590 per month. This family will receive a 25% sibling discount off of the oldest child but has also requested a scholarship to afford preschool. A scholarship amount for the year for this family would be $2,012.50.
 
A child is enrolled for 5 half days, which costs $530 per month. This family has requested a scholarship for the preschool year. A scholarship amount for the year for this family would be $1,325.00.
 
So, as you can see, preschool is expensive…and to be honest we are one of the lowest priced in the valley in regards to full time care. We have tried hard to make sure we can make preschool and extended care affordable for our families in our community. The scholarship fund makes a big difference to these families and is the difference of if they can afford preschool or not.
 
If you are praying though donating to the scholarship fund and have additional questions, please reach out to me via email (macon@peaceaz.org) or phone (623.972.1076). Thank you for partnering with our preschool and for your continued support and prayers.
