Preschool Program Rates Increase
Begins June 15, 2020
Private Pay Central Davie Site $540
Private Pay Elementary Site $510
DCS Employee $420
On November 5, 2019, the Board of Education voted to support a rate increase for our Preschool Services. Beginning with our summer enrollment on June 15, our monthly rates will be $540 for Private Pay at Central Davie, $510 for Private Pay at Elementary Preschool sites, and $420 for Davie County School’s employees.
With cost of living increases and salary increases over the past five years it was imperative that we take a close look at our rates for preschool services offered through the school system. The current average Market Rate in our community is $695 per month. Our current rate is $510 per month for non-employee and $390 a month for DCS employees. The Preschool Program has not asked for an increase to tuition in five years while the market rate for preschool services continue to climb. It was imperative to act in order to continue services in our community. Thank you for understanding!
