PreSchool Tuition


La Salle Catholic School is the recipient of a grant funded by the State of Iowa for early childhood education.  Western Dubuque Community Schools administers the grant.  We host a free all day preschool program for children who will be 4 years old on or before September 15, 2013. Free preschool meets Monday-Wednesday from 7:45 a.m.-3:15 p.m. Classes are held in the Luxemburg Center. We will offer a fourth day of preschool on Thursday at a cost of $72.00 per month. 

Transportation is available on a fee basis through Western Dubuque Community Schools. If you want your child to be bussed both ways 3 days per week, the cost will be $33 per month; one way is $16 per month.  If you want your child to be bussed both ways 4 days per week, the cost is $44 per month; one way is $27 per month. To request transportation you must live on an existing bus route.
