The Preschool Tuition Subsidy Program addresses the needs of preschool children when tuition is a barrier to attendance.  The Board invites applications from individual families requiring assistance with monthly preschool tuition in established preschools. Because the Foundation has limited funds, applications are considered on a first-come, first-serve basis.  We encourage families requiring assistance to apply:

  • at any time throughout the year for the current school year; and,
  • from January to September for the upcoming school year.   


In accordance with its vision and mission, the Saskatoon Preschool Foundation will allocate funds within its annual budget to provide subsidies for a portion of the preschool tuition for children enrolled or wishing to enroll in an eligible preschool program, where the payment of tuition presents a financial hardship.


An eligible child is one who is:

  • preschool aged
  • enrolled or wishing to enroll in an incorporated preschool operating in a public facility such as a school or church.


  • A subsidy for an eligible child will be provided for one academic year, or a portion of an academic year.
  • Once approved, the subsidy will be paid directly to the preschool in which the child in enrolled.
  • The maximum subsidy is $800 per child per academic year.
  • Subsidies will be granted from the date the application is received by the Foundation.
  • Subsidies are not provided for the month of September.


  • Application to the Saskatoon Preschool Foundation will be made by the parent or legal guardian of the child enrolled or wishing to enroll in an eligible preschool.
  • Tuition subsidy approvals for the upcoming school year will be determined and communicated to parents/legal guardians and preschools in September.
