UHP is a part-day, non-profit, parent cooperative preschool for children ages 2.5–6 years old. Siblings 2-6 years are eligible for enrollment. Children 2 years old are welcome to join our waiting list. All families are welcome at UHP. As a cooperative, we recognize the value of a strong home/school partnership and give families many opportunities to take an active role in all aspects of our center's operation.

1. Morning Program (8:45-11:45am) Children may be enrolled for 5, 4, 3, or 2 days per week. 4 day options must be Monday, Wednesday, and Friday with a choice of Tuesday or Thursday for the 4th day. 3 day options must be Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. 2 day options must be Tuesday and Thursday.

Additional Program Information and Fees

There is a separate non-refundable registration fee of $110 per child that includes a $55 credit on the first month of tuition for the academic year program. The first month’s tuition bill includes a non-refundable Materials Fee of $40 per child and a $100 Cleaning Fee (the cleaning fee is refunded in an ongoing basis as the 4 hour annual cleaning requirement is filled).


There are two levels of tuition rates members or non-members. Families enrolling in the cooperative as members work in the program either as “Parent Helpers” or members of the Board of Directors (email kmbeck@uhpparentcooperative.org if interested) and pay a lower rate of tuition. When extra helper days are available, families may work more than the required amount to reduce their tuition. Families need to bring in snacks each year (2-3 days is 4 snacks, 4-5 days is 6 snacks).


Tuition rates are divided into 10 equal payments August 15th through May 15th and are paid via our online management system Jovial.
