Monthly Private Education Cost for Preschoolers Averages $255

South Korea is known for its zealous pursuit of education, beginning in the pre-school years.  OECD data over the years have shown that Korean families invest more in private education than parents in other nations.  According to a report in The Korea Times, households in the Seoul metropolitan area last year spent an average of $255 (290,000 won) per month on private education.  This figure is based on a survey of nearly 1,500 households in Seoul.  The same report indicated that an average household spent 420,000 won per month on private schooling for an elementary school student and 568,000 won for a middle school student.
