DS’ private preschool is still open with very limited hours and decreased staffing. We are still paying full tuition even though DS is not attending. I’m wondering if there a way that I can politely ask the director/owner if she is still paying her teachers and staff their full salary even if they aren’t working their normal hours since families are all still paying? I don’t want to be rude and are able and happy to pay, but I want to make sure that the tuition is being used to keep the staff paid.

I would just email and ask that. It’s a fair question

Agree with @gotkimchi: Totally valid question.

Thanks! Just didn’t want to come off as.. judgmental? I’m not even sure what word to use to describe it

I’d just ask too. I would assume they are. At least our private preschool is (still paying full and they’re closed but “teaching online” - very hard for four year olds!!).

Our preschool is doing Zoom lessons once a week, but also sent out an email saying that they're planning to pay their teachers in full and would appreciate everyone continuing to pay their tuition, but will gladly make an exception for anyone in a tough financial spot. I'm sure it's something they've discussed, so it's fair for you as a parent to inquire!
