Financial Aid

Gates Preschool partners with FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to provide congregation members in good standing and non-members a safe, secure, flexible, and objective application and assessment of income, need, and eligibility for tuition assistance. Families must first apply for CCAP before applying for FACTS.  We recommend families seeking assistance apply as early as possible as the determination process can take up to four weeks once all required documentation is received.  Note, there is no Financial Aid offered for or applicable to Infant Care tuition, or Before or After Care Program costs.
