Investing in Early Childhood Education

where does my tuition go

In this series about the finances in the world of preschools, we want to tell you WHERE the tuition goes when you invest in your child’s education at Yellow Brick Road! All of our schools are financially independent, meaning, when you pay tuition at your school it goes into your child’s school!! So, where does it go?!


  • Teacher Salaries – We pay our teachers well and we do that intentionally. We know that our teachers are invaluable and without them, we would not be able to live up to our mission of putting good humans into the world and leaving it better than we found it.


  • Employee Benefits – Along the same lines of paying our teachers well, we also offer stellar benefits! We pay a portion of insurance, offer regular training, offer staff meals so that our teachers can eat with their students each day, and soooo much more!


  • Security Systems, Fire Alarms, and General Safety – Safety is KEY in a preschool. We pay for the alarm systems, cameras, entry systems like codes, key cards, and the digital apps.


  • Supplies – Our teachers always have a supply room full of the materials they need to prepare their lessons each week. We replenish those supplies whenever it is needed and we love watching our teachers get creative with the curriculum.


  • Curriculum – Speaking of our creative curriculum, we pay for FunnyDaffer, our curriculum tool that our teachers use to write their lesson plans.


  • KangarooTime – Everyone LOVES the daily updates! It may seem like a given, but KangarooTime makes it on our list of investments.


  • Meals – Not only do we cover all meals, but we also cover the snacks and breakfast foods, and the amazing people who make our meals each day!


  • Gas – In the states where we have busses for before and after school care, the gas is covered in the school-age tuition


  • Buildings and Maintenance – It takes more than investing in our schools to keep them in tip-top shape! We value our maintenance team SO much for the quick repairs they make in our schools. We also, of course, cover the cost of our buildings!


  • Community Engagement – We take pride in being a part of our community. We love joining chambers and each year we pay those membership fees to stay as involved as possible with other locally-owned businesses.


While this list continues into some of the more boring stuff like printers and phone lines and our website… we wanted to be as transparent and let you know that when you invest in your child’s education at Yellow Brick Road, we also invest in their education on every front!


All of this to say… at Yellow Brick Road, we believe that investing in your child’s education means investing in every aspect of their growth and development. From prioritizing competitive teacher salaries and comprehensive employee benefits to ensuring state-of-the-art security systems and a well-stocked supply room, every dollar of tuition goes directly into enriching your child’s educational experience. We take pride in providing a nurturing and safe environment where creativity thrives, supported by innovative curriculum tools and daily updates through KangarooTime. Additionally, we prioritize community engagement and maintain our facilities to the highest standards, demonstrating our commitment to excellence in every facet of our operations. When you are a part of the Yellow Brick Road Family, you’re not just investing in a preschool; you’re investing in a holistic approach to education that prepares your child for a bright future.
