Pre-K Program Fees

Metro Pre-K classrooms are funded in a number of different ways, including using local and state funding. Each fund source has different requirements, like serving families based on income within Davidson County or charging a fee.

Some Pre-K seats require a fee, which is based on the sliding scale below. Depending on a family’s household income and the number of family members in the household, that fee could be anywhere from $0-$144 per child every week. The fee does not include Extended Learning (before or after care).
