A quality preschool education is the best investment you can make in a child’s future.
Here at Tiny Trees we make it an investment you can afford.
If you look at our tuition price and think “I can’t afford that” then you most likely qualify for financial assistance price, which is 40% below market rate.
If you look at our tuition price and think “there is NO WAY I can afford that” then you most likely qualify for FREE tuition from the City of Seattle (Seattle Preschool Program – Pathways) or from Tiny Trees.
