If you would like a schedule that includes both half days & full days, we will gladly calculate the tuition rate for you.

Tuition is collected on a monthly basis and is due by the Friday of each month, regardless of absences and closures. Payments are made one month in advance with the first payment due in August and the last due in April. Checks should be made payable to “Rochester Church of Christ”. A $25 late fee will be charged for all payments received after the 10th of the month. If payment is not received by the 10th and late payment arrangements have not been made, the student may not attend school until the account is brought current.

Because our budgeting and staffing are dependent upon knowing our students’ schedules, each parent must provide us with a child’s schedule upon enrollment. We are unable to accommodate “swapping” scheduled days for days outside of your child’s schedule. RCP is unable to give tuition discounts, refunds or offer make-up days if a child misses school due to illness, family vacations, or schedule conflicts. Thirty days written notice is required for any schedule change. If you would like or need to occasionally add a day to your child’s schedule, we may be able to accommodate this is space is available.


This year, the preschool will remain open until the end of the Rochester Community Schools calendar year for those families who need care for their children. These two weeks are not covered by the regular tuition payments. The cost is $25/day for half day and $50/day for full-day.


Enrollment Rochester Church Preschool will not deny enrollment on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, height, weight, or disability. Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. We accept children between the ages of 2 ½ and 5. In accordance with Michigan Department of Human Services licensing standards, all children enrolled in our program must be fully potty-trained. No pull-ups are permitted.

In order for a child to be officially enrolled in a preschool session, the following actions must be received:

  • A completed application and $50 non-refundable application fee should be submitted.

Before the first day of class, the following actions must occur:

  • A physical examination and health form must be completed by a physician and the form submitted
  • An immunization record must be submitted or an immunization waiver signed
  • Payment of the first month’s tuition should be received

The first month that a child attends our program will be a time of observation for both the child’s parents and the preschool staff. If it is determined for any reason that the school is unable to meet the needs of a child or the expectations of his/her parents, either party may terminate enrollment in writing one week prior to the end of the first month. After this observation period, a written notice of withdrawal must be received 30 days prior and must state the child’s last day of class. If this 30 day notification is not given, any paid tuition will be forfeited.
