  2. Upon receiving an enrollment offer, a non-refundable deposit must be paid to secure your child's slot. The deposit will go towards your child's supplemental fee (see below).

Students currently enrolled in SAECC have priority in the PKEEP program. Any available spaces thereafter will be offered to outside families. In the event PKEEP reaches its cap, families may still be offered enrollment in our preschool program at full tuition, vouchers, or tuition assistance. 

Children ages 3 to 5 gain necessary skills to ensure school readiness.

Supplemental Fees

The subsidized care provided by DC for the PKEEP program covers the cost of care for the length of a DCPS school day. Since we are a full year program that offers 10 hours of care, we will require supplemental fees. These fees will cover 3.5 hours of before and after care, meals, enrichment programs, Summer care, and coverage for DCPS holidays and breaks during the periods that SAECC is open. SAECC is open for a total of 240 days while DCPS is open for a total of 180 days. Therefore, there are 60 days that SAECC can provide care that will not be covered by PKEEP subsidy.  The supplemental fees for the year must be paid in full by December. 

Children also have free play opportunities to socialize and exercise their energetic bodies.
