Tuition and fees for the 2021-2022 school year are estimated below.* 


Tuition is based on a full day, which starts with drop-off between 8:30 am and 9:00 am and ends at 3:20 pm. Monthly tuition for 3s is as follows:

  • 5 days / week: $2,125 

Parents pay tuition in monthly installments. A deposit of one month’s tuition is required when parents accept a spot.

Chickpeas currently offers free full day Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK), through a contract with the NYC Department of Education. Children are eligible for UPK if they turn 4 by December 31st of the school year. All UPK students must attend school 5 days per week. Chickpeas charges no tuition or fees for UPK students during the regular school day, but hourly fees apply for our optional after-school program, as well as our July session.



Chickpeas offers a flexible after-school program, which runs from 3:20 pm - 5:30 pm Monday through Friday. Parents can decide when to pick up their children as late as the morning of drop off. 2021-2022 after-school rates are estimated at $12.10-$13 per hour, billed in 15-minute increments. After-school fees are capped at 32 hours per month ($387.20-$416). 

After-school hours are invoiced monthly based on usage.



A one-time materials fee of $400 is charged at the beginning of each school year.

*Please note: the final operating budget for 2021-2022 is proposed by the current board, but will not be formally adopted until the new board comes on in September. The proposed rates listed above are subject to change.
