Preschool Information

  • General Information 

    Vestavia Hills City Schools currently offers preschool at three locations: Vestavia Hills Elementary East, Vestavia Hills Elementary Cahaba Heights, and Vestavia Hills Elementary Liberty Park. The Vestavia Hills City Schools Preschool Program is an integrated preschool classroom for children ages 3-5 who are typically developing as well as children who require special education services. Typically developing peers act as peer models to students who require special education services. All students are taught by highly qualified, certified teachers using research-based programs that follow State of Alabama standards to help prepare children for Kindergarten.

    To be considered a typically developing peer, the child must pass a developmental screener and demonstrate the following: age-appropriate speech and language skills, age-appropriate self-help skills, modeling positive behaviors, and be toilet trained.

    School hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. After-school care is not available for preschoolers. 

    There is a non-refundable registration fee of $100, a supply fee of $100, and a snack fee of $60 per semester. You may purchase lunch at school ($2.50 per day, paid online), or your child may bring lunch.

    Tuition is due the first day of each month. The tuition schedule is as follows:

    • 5 days attending: $300
