"Young children respond to gestures and movement before they react to the spoken word. They understand and explore sound before they learn to speak. They draw pictures before they form letters. They dance and act out stories before they learn to read."


Lucy School honors diversity in its students and has an open admission process without regard to race, sex, color, religion or ethnic origin. Children, however, must be fully potty-trained before they can enroll in the preschool. Parents and/or guardians are encouraged to visit the school with their children. Monthly open houses are held at 9:00 on the second Tuesday of each month beginning in November and continuing through May.  Space is limited and visits are by appointment.

Tuition costs and payment plan options are listed on the back of the enrollment form. Discounts are provided for siblings attending at the same time. A nonrefundable registration deposit of ten percent of the annual tuition cost is required when the enrollment contract and related documents are signed and returned to the school. Please note that admission to the school is not completed until the school receives these items. There are no other costs or fees, except for a $200 material fee for children in the kindergarten/elementary/primary program.


Financial Aid

Need-based financial assistance is available. Requests for financial assistance will be processed in April of each year, provided that the requisite financial aid forms have been returned to school by February 15. Tuition assistance applications are available at the school.


Visiting Lucy School

The best way for families to truly experience what makes Lucy School such a special place is to visit the school in session. During a tour of the school and grounds you will be able to ask questions about the school, and assess whether Lucy School is an appropriate choice for your child.

Please call the school at (301) 293-1163 to schedule an appointment.
