What is a key ingredient for high-quality education? Low teacher-to-child ratios and low group sizes. Why is that important? The teachers are able to know each child as an individual. Teachers track their children’s development in each domain of growth: cognitive, language, physical, social, and emotional. As such, they create individualized curriculum and classroom experiences accordingly to stretch their knowledge and learning. Teachers can provide individual social and emotional support during conflict resolution (acknowledging feelings, sharing, taking turns, and more). Our teacher retention rate is impressively high, as teaching in a setting with low ratios is rewarding and fulfilling. Our classrooms are cheerful, calm, and full of children enthusiastically exploring with ample room and materials.
Our tuition rates may be slightly higher than other programs due to our low ratios, and the benefits are tangible. FUMP is a high-quality program, based on the unique interests, needs, and abilities of the preschool-aged child. At FUMP, we place children’s needs first; most especially, the need for connection with their teachers and their peers in an optimal learning setting.
Tuition is due the first day of the month that your child attends. Full payment is due each month regardless of the number of days your child is expected to attend. August tuition is pro-rated, taking into account the number of days that staff is attending inservice and the number of days children attend. For more specific information, please read our HELPFUL HINTS ON PAYMENTS post or contact the PRESCHOOL OFFICE.
FUMP only accepts the ACH form of payment, also known as an electronic funds transfer directly from your checking account. We also accept personal checks and online bill payments sent from your financial institutions. We no longer accept credit card payments due to the high fees associated with such transactions. If you need more information about payment options, please contact the preschool office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
