We understand that the expense of preschool may be a strain on a family’s budget, and helping eligible families reduce their cost through scholarships is an important part of our program. We also keep our tuition as low as possible, while striving to provide a quality preschool experience.

Most of our scholarship funds are provided by our parents and congregation who care about children and believe that CGP provides a strong Christian preschool experience, a great first school experience, and a place where your faith and family life can grow strong.

If you are interested in applying for Financial Aid Scholarships, please print the application below and return to Susan Chester, Director by the deadline indicated on the application.

Your application will be considered with all other submissions at the same time and you will be informed of the award by the deadline listed on the form. Please feel free to call or email the school for more information at
