Tuition

Early Intervention

The Early Intervention Program (EIP) is a public program for children under the age of three who are either suspected of having or at risk for developmental delays or disabilities. Potentially eligible children must be referred to the county program of residence (Growing Up Healthy 1-800-522-5006) to receive EIP services. EIP is funded by New York State and county governments. ALL EIP services are provided at no cost to parents. Health insurance may be used for approved services. A child’s eligibility for the program can be determined only by state approved evaluators under contract and all services must be authorized by the county.

Children with hearing loss, who have been evaluated and approved to receive services through the Department of Health’s Early Intervention Program (birth-3 years) or Westchester County's Early Intervention Program are eligible to receive services at no cost to the parents. Parents of children who are not approved through this program will be charged tuition on a sliding scale.

Preschool

Children with hearing loss, who have been evaluated and approved to receive services through the NYC Department of Education (3-5 years) Committee on Preschool Education (CPSE)  are eligible to receive services at no cost to the parents. Parents of children who are not approved through the school district will be charged tuition on a sliding scale.

Our Integrated Preschool Class, an alternative preschool option, has an unusually low tuition compared to similar high quality preschool programs in NYC. If you are the parent of a hearing child interested in learning more about our preschool classes, call or email us. Please contact Suzanne Foley at 212.585.3500 for information about the program, an application, tuition information and financial aid.
