Tuition is charged on the basis of total costs of operation for the school year and divided into nine monthly payments. We ask that tuition be paid by the first of each month. Checks should be made payable to Jack & Jill Cooperative Preschool and placed in the Treasurer’s Box.
The cooperative preschool program is a parent/child participation program. Parents enroll in the Bates Technical College parent education program, and enroll their child(ren) in the cooperative preschool of their choice. While parents are enrolled in the Bates parent education program they earn college clock hours in a continuing education program. Child Studies instructors from Bates Technical College provide the cooperative preschools with teacher and leadership training, parent education seminars, technical assistance, information, and support. Parents enrolled in affiliated cooperative preschools have access to many parenting resources on the College campus.
These fees are collected at orientation and are prorated for families who enroll mid-year. This fee is for the parent’s enrollment, not the child’s, so there is no discount, or extra cost, for multiple children. Bates enrollment fees are set by the college each year and subject to change.

- Group A (2’s) – $83.40
