Time Kids Preschool: Fee structure for admission, tuition, transfer etc

There is no information about Time Kids preschool fees in the official website. It is not possible to mention a fixed fee structure as the charges are decided by the franchisees and not the management. So, if you are looking for accurate information on Time Kids fees, you should get in touch with the Centre Head(s) of the individual school(s) under their network. The official website says:

Tuition fee is specific to each center. The Center head at our play school will provide all the information at the time of enrolment.

While this is fine for most, sometimes you might just need estimated figures. If you are having two or more preschool options in hand, and fee structure is one of your deciding factors, you may want to have an estimations of expenses involved for taking a final decision. While most of the preschools do not officially disclose any fees structure as that is centre-specific, we may have some rough idea from browsing web forums, news articles, words of mouth and so on. They are not accurate figures but such estimates primarily help us choosing the best preschool for our kids. So, here are what we found from web forums and words of mouth. Remember, for accurate fees structure, always get in touch with the particular school.
