As a parent coop, we encourage parents to assist in the classroom regularly throughout the school year. Grandparents and nannies are also welcome. Assistants are scheduled based on their availability and compensated with a $60 tuition credit for each shift worked, up to but not exceeding total cost of family enrollment. Some only assist once or twice a month. The enrollment process requires a background check/fingerprinting, evidence of adult vaccinations, and TB check. Contact Teacher Nicole at for more details.


TUITION PAYMENT: School year tuition is divided into nine monthly installments. The first deposit to reserve your child's spot is due before the school year begins. That payment will count as tuition for September 2023. Subsequent tuition payments will be due on the first of each month from October to May. Please pay your bill on time and consider paying in advance.
REFUNDS: All tuition payments, including the first deposit for September 2023, are non-refundable. 

PARENT PARTICIPATION: Building Blocks Preschool is a tiny, non-profit preschool run by parent volunteers.
  • Per school year, each family takes on one school job, like maintaining the school grounds or being on the fundraising committee, based on their preferences expressed in their enrollment form. Buying out of the school job is $500 per semester ($1000 per year). 
  • Per semester, each family also contributes one adult to work at a scheduled maintenance day or arrange a separate four-hour project. Buying out of one semester's worth of maintenance hours is $300 ($600 per year).
  • Assisting in the classroom as a TA earns $60 in tuition reimbursements per shift. More information can be found above.
SCHOLARSHIPS: We offer partial and full scholarships based on financial need. The scholarship application can be found in your Jovial Family Portal. All application information is kept confidential. Families can apply at any time.

WITHDRAWING: Tuition is due on the first of each month, so please notify your child's teacher by the end of the month if you wish to withdraw. All bills must be paid in full before withdrawing. The deposit paid for September 2023 before the start of the school year is non-refundable.

HOW TO PAY: E-payments make the task of our parent volunteers so much easier!  Please use E-payments through our online system. If you absolutely must pay by check, please consider paying for a semester or the full year. Use the tuition drop-box at school.
  • E-payment Option 1 - ACH BANK ACCOUNT PAYMENTS:  Families can select ACH payment to have the amount due directly debited from your bank account. This is easiest and only costs BB $1 per transaction.  For security, our payment processor requires verification of “microdeposits” the first time a family makes an ACH payment.  Following your first ACH payment, you will receive an automated email with instructions to verify the amounts of two small microdeposits into your bank account (for example $0.02 and $0.06).  
  • E-payment Option 2 - CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS: If you choose to pay by credit card - you MUST select the button "Yes" to donate the cost of processing the payment. Otherwise we will add the cost of credit card fees to your next bill. Our little non-profit preschool cannot absorb the costs of credit card fees, and this is the only way we can accept credit card payments.
