Affording Nido

Affordability

At Nido, we do not want tuition to get in the way of your child's education. There are multiple options the School provides to make your family's Nido education possible. We aim to support families that share Nido's values and appreciate its pedagogical approach but are unable to cover the entire cost of the tuition.

Tuition Assistance is need-based, and, if awarded, the family is given an offer for a discount on tuition and/or for the incorporation fee. Families that are new to Nido must go through the application for tuition assistance simultaneously with the admissions application process.

How to apply

Support is provided to families with financial need on an annual basis. Current families complete the application process in November prior to the new School year (starting in July). Families that are new to Nido must go through the assistance application simultaneously with the admissions application process. In order to apply, families need to complete an application form and send the requested documents (which include but are not limited to job contract, payslips, bank statements, investment and debt certificates). The process also includes a personal interview and home visit. To begin the application process, please contact financialaid@nido.cl.

Once an award is made, families will be asked to resubmit their documentation and application form annually to determine if their situation has changed and verify that eligibility and review criteria indicated above continue to be met by the student.

The application process for the 2022-2023 school year will begin in November 2021. Applications for Current Nido Families are due no later than January 15, 2022, and applications for families applying to Nido for the first time are due no later than March 15, 2022. New families go through the process simultaneously to the admissions application process. To apply contact: financialaid@nido.cl.

Nido has an emergency tuition assistance program, available year-round, and applicable in the case of employment loss and/or illness. Emergency assistance accounts for no more than 30% of the full tuition cost.
