At Maharishi Preschool, very high standards are maintained for each child’s happiness, comfort, and ability to cooperate in a group. Preschool should be easy and nourishing for the child, and the School reserves the right to decide that a child is not ready to adjust to the program. In this case, the Preschool Director will discuss the situation with the parents, and a pro-rated refund will be given.

Maharishi School has a fundraising program that requires parental participation. This is to ensure that everyone shares in the fundraising responsibilities needed to operate the School. Every parent is obliged to participate in our School’s fundraising efforts. This includes participation in the Fairfield Bike Fest, Holiday Gift Store, Ideal Shopping Program, Golf Tournament and/or other fundraising drives. This obligation should be met by May 31, 2006. Alternately, parents may pay $500 per student ($100 per Preschool student) to satisfy this obligation. For further information about these fundraising activities, please call the Development Office at 472-0094.

Word of Wisdom and Transcendental Meditation Program
Transcendental Meditation is a fundamental aspect of the education at Maharishi School. Students may receive instruction in the Transcendental Meditation or Word of Wisdom technique at the Transcendental Meditation Program Center located on the Maharishi University of Management campus (641/472-4514) or at the nearest Transcendental Meditation Program Center if they do not live in Fairfield.

The cost of instruction in the Word of Wisdom and Transcendental Meditation program is not included in the annual tuition. Children of parents who are not instructors in the Transcendental Meditation technique are required to pay this instruction fee.
