Access to preschool can change the trajectory of a child’s life
Bezos Academy is a growing network of tuition-free, Montessori-inspired preschools in underserved communities.
Our preschools offer year-round programming, five days a week, for children ages 3-4 years old and are made possible thanks to the help of community host partners.
Community Host Partners are individuals or organizations who share our belief that children always come first and wish to make a positive impact on the children and families of their communities. These partners provide Bezos Academy with the physical space or building that will become a preschool. If you have an available space and are interested in increasing access to early education in your community, please contact us to learn more!
Thank you for your interest in partnering with Bezos Academy. A member from our team will be in contact with you shortly!
Why Host a Bezos Academy?
We believe every child deserves the great start that an excellent preschool provides, and that there simply aren’t enough affordable preschool options, especially in underserved communities.
Community partners make tuition-free preschool a reality for children and their families. Each Bezos Academy operates year-round, five days a week, and provides children with three meals a day.
What Does a Host Partner Do?
Community hosts provide us with the physical space or building that will be transformed into a preschool for no additional rent for at least ten years. Ten years might sound like a long time, but we’re committed to serving your communities for years to come.
Bezos Academy makes the necessary investments to transform the space into a warm, welcoming preschool environment, and we furnish it with everything required to open a new Montessori-inspired preschool.
We also cover all the operating expenses for our preschool programs at no cost to either the families we serve or our community host. We hire, train, develop, and pay talented educators, and we provide everything that the children need during their day with us, including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.
