Thomas Elementary School Preschool
In an effort to expand options for families for the 2022-2023 school year, the Flagstaff Unified School District (FUSD) will be opening two new preschool programs. The new preschool classrooms will be located at Thomas Elementary School and Killip Elementary School. The new preschool programs will be licensed preschools with an academic and kindergarten-ready focus, are aligned with Arizona state standards and curriculum, and will have certified preschool teachers.
The preschool programs are for all students and are affordable, based on a sliding income scale. Tuition for the 2022-2023 school year is $200 per month and $100 per month if a family qualifies for reduced price. Families who meet the Free & Reduced lunch guidelines will receive the appropriate rate information. Information relative to the Free & Reduced Price School Meals is available here. All months of the school year will be full-month tuition, including the months of December and March. Students who qualify for special education services will not be charged tuition.
The preschools will operate on half-day sections that follow the FUSD school calendar. Classes will be held Monday through Thursday, with no school on Fridays. The morning session is from 8:40 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., and the afternoon session is from 12:30 p.m. to 3:20 p.m. Class sizes are 14-18 students per class. Transportation will not be provided, so drop-off and pick-up arrangements need to be arranged by parents/guardians.
To register, students must turn 3 on or before August 31st and be 3 before the first day of school for the three-year-old program. Students must turn 4 on or before August 31st for the 4-year-old program. Registration is open to all students within the FUSD boundaries.
