Tuition Assistance

A scholarship fund is available to families who may need assistance with tuition.  This may be ongoing support or temporary help due to a change in circumstances for a family.  If you would like to apply for a scholarship, please complete the scholarship application form and return it with your DNP enrollment application.  A new request for scholarship will need to be made for each school year. Scholarship funds are made possible by parent fundraising, gifts from corporate donors, and earnings from the preschool endowment fund.  Scholarship awards are granted to families who qualify until scholarship funds are no longer available. Funds are limited. Early application is recommended.

Dodge Nature Preschool is a 4 Star Parent Awarerated preschool. We ask that all families applying for scholarship through DNP also apply for a Parent Aware Pathway I Early Learning Scholarship.
