Tuition Rates for School Year 2016-2017


Cocoons works very hard to maintain tuition rates that are affordable for the average family; when compared to other private schools in Southern Maine, our kindergarten/1st grade tuition rates are nearly 40% less than other schools in the area. When compared to other preschools in Southern Maine, our preschool rates are also extremely competitive.

At Cocoons we are acutely aware that families need to be able to budget their money. As a result of our commitment to our Cocooners, there will never be an annual tuition increase implemented of more than 5%. In fact, we work very hard to keep tuition increases well below that level.


When more than one child in a family attends Cocoons during an academic year, the 2nd child is entitled to a 25% tuition discount


We are proud to announce the formation of Friends of Cocoons a nonprofit 501C3 that will help fund scholarships for qualifying Cocooners.
