About Our Program

 
We are very excited about your interest in Mentor Public Schools Integrated Preschool. These are important key points regarding our program:
 
• Our program is housed in the Garfield Elementary building, located at 7090 Hopkins Road.
 
• Children must be three years old by September 30th, 2022, and completely toilet-trained.
 
• Tuition for the 2022-2023 school year is $1,350.00 per year, payable in monthly installments of $150.00.  A $150.00 deposit is required at the time of registration and will be applied to the May 2023 tuition payment.  Again, this is required to reserve the spot for your child.
 
• Our program is an integrated preschool that provides education to special needs and typically developing students ages 3, 4, and 5 years old. Mentor Public Schools provides this through an inclusion philosophy where typically-developing children, as well as students with special needs, are in our program.  For more information regarding the benefits of and philosophy behind an integrated program, please view our Preschool Handbook through the link on the right side of this page.

• Each classroom has a classroom assistant.
 
• Each classroom will be multi-age with students ranging in age from 3-5.
