Our commitment to broader inclusion

L'Ecole Koenig has been a non-profit organization in the true sense of the word since 1986. Although we have never benefited from public funding, no child has ever been turned away for financial reasons.

In an increasingly challenging and uncertain world, our school is more determined than ever to assure accessibility to our programs.

Our team has established a financial aid package for our Preschool families based on family revenue, and we encourage all interested families to apply.

Financial aid implies a veritable partnership between the family and our school. Consequently, we require a commitment until the end of our program.

Preschool scholarship guidelines

Our scholarship program depends on the number of spots available and the families' financial means. It results in our ability to calculate a tuition fee based on the parents' net taxable income and estate documents.

  • All families can apply for the scholarship. Applications are reviewed by the Scholarship Committee that considers their 2023 tax return to come (or 2022 in the meantime), based upon their last taxable income. As the number of available scholarships is limited, the parents' net taxable income level does not automatically attribute a scholarship and/or a spot.
  • Based on the parents ' yearly net taxable income level ("revenu fiscal de référence" in France), we guarantee a scholarship during the child's whole schooling at our preschool and kindergarten. This means that the scholarship awarded is reassessed every year based on the family's tax return.
  • Upon receiving the scholarship, the family agrees to enroll their child until she/he graduates from our kindergarten (leaving our "grande section" for elementary school). If the family decides to unenroll the child before the end of the kindergarten ("grande section") school year, the school will ask the family to reimburse the total amount of scholarship received during the entire time of the child's enrollment. This does not apply in the case of relocation outside of Paris.

No. You may apply for a scholarship even if your child is currently not enrolled at our preschool.

What happens if my household income drops so much that I cannot afford keeping my child enrolled at your school, even with a scholarship?

In the event of a drastic change in circumstances that makes it impossible for your child to continue attending our school, the school will convene a special committee to decide on additional financial aid.

The school commits to a scholarship throughout your child's schooling at our preschool, but the exact amount of the scholarship needs to be recalculated every year based on your household's  yearly tax return file.
