What is Integrated Preschool

  • North Thurston Public Schools' preschool programs offer typically-developing children an opportunity to serve as peer models in a special needs classroom.  Integrated preschool is a tuition-based program available to children 3-4 years old.
    If your child turns 5 years old ON or BEFORE August 31, they are Kindergarten age-appropriate for the fall and NOT eligible for preschool. 
    • Preschool is offered half-day. The 2-day per week program is $165 per month, and the 4-day per week program is $280 per month.
    • There is a 10% discount if tuition is paid in full for the entire school year, but only if paid before August 3rd.
    • Check to see if your child meets the Immunization Requirements for our district.

How to Enroll

  • Preschool Registration is a 3-step process.
    1. Apply. (Web form application)
    2. Pay tuition, or set up payment plan.
