Yes. Tuition is past due after 10 days and is therefore subject to a $20 late fee.
  • Do you offer scholarships or discounts?
We operate by tuition only and do not receive any other funding. So unfortunately, we are not able to offer scholarships.
We do offer a multiple child discount when attending in the same school year.
We offer a 5% discount if year is paid in full.
  • Will we be responsible for buying school supplies?
No. The Preschool will purchase all needed supplies.
  • Do you require parents to participate in fundraising efforts?
We do one fundraiser a year, but it is optional for parents to participate.

Parental Involvement

  • Is parental participation required? Will there be opportunities for parents to volunteer in the classroom?
We generally discourage classroom volunteers because we have found it distracts the students from their normal routine.
We welcome offers to help prep crafts at home and sometimes have special occasions where volunteers are helpful or needed.
  • How do you communicate with parents on a regular basis?
Paper communication, email, Brightwheel, class Facebook page, texts, at drop off and pick-up
  • Are there parent/teacher conferences?
We do not hold conferences but encourage parents to contact us when questions or concerns arise, as teachers will do the same. We are willing to set up appointments to meet or talk over the phone, if needed.
Also, we evaluate the kids 3x per year and send home assessments to keep parents up to date on their child’s progress.

Classroom Management

  • How does Drop off and Pickup work?
We have a driveway located behind the church that parents use to drop off and pickup their child at their classroom door each time. Teachers will greet each student as they arrive and dismiss students 1-2 at pick up time. We are very fortunate to have this option. Our new 4/5 year old classroom is located upstairs, so parents will need to park in front and walk child in.
  • What curriculum do you use?
We are dedicated to providing the best possible Christian education for your child. Our curriculum is designed to:
-encourage the joy of learning
-develop the skills necessary to follow a routine
-develop both large and small muscle coordination
-promote healthy social interaction
-stimulate intellectual development
-nurture your child’s self-esteem
-foster independence
-develop your child’s faith in God
The Preschool curriculum is also based around monthly themes and the Letter of the week. Lessons are planned to provide academic progress in preparation for Kindergarten readiness.

Our max number in the 3 year old classes are 8 students per one teacher.
Our max number in the 4 & 5 year old classes are 12 students per one teacher.
  • What is a typical day look like?
Our days consist of Free Playtime/Centers, Circle Time, Clean up time, Learning Time, Bathroom, Snack/Lunch, Recess, Journals and Story Time. Each day is filled with activities and lessons to keep the kids busy and engaged while they are there, making the most of our time.
More info is listed on the Registration info page, you will need to click the link.
  • Do you focus more on academics or social growth?
Both. These are fundamental for Preschool age kids. We make it a priority to be intentional, incorporating them into every part of our day.
  • Will my child learn basic skills like letters and numbers? Colors and shapes?
Of course. Each child learns at their own pace. These will be introduced throughout the school year.
  • Do the children go outside? Weather permitting, how often and for how long?
Yes! We have a beautiful playground, pictured on our front page of our website, that we use every day for 15-20 mins. If it is pouring down rain or icy we will use the “gym” located down the hall in the church.
  • How do snacks work?
For the 3 & 4 year old classes each student will have a chance to bring in snacks for their classmates one week at a time, on a rotating basis. Monthly calendars will be sent home at the end of each month so you can plan accordingly.
-For the 4/5 year old class, students will bring in their own lunch. We welcome small treats for the class on their birthday!
  • How do you handle food allergies?
Children with allergies generally keep their own food in the classroom in case they are allergic to snack of the day. Families are notified of allergies in the classroom. Teachers keep a record visible in classroom.
  • How does bathroom time work?
Our Preschool bathrooms are located down the hallway, on the landing of the stairway. Each class has a designated time for children to use the restroom. While children take turns using the bathroom, the other children will sit on steps and teachers will use this time to sing or reiterate lessons. If needed, classes may do this 1-2 times a class period.
  • How are children disciplined?
Preschoolers are just beginning to learn to express their emotions and acquire the complex skills required in our society. Understandably, they will try a variety of behaviors as they approach this difficult task in their struggle to achieve a balance between their personal needs and the rights and safety of others.
We have instituted a Green and Red choice behavior management system. Green choices are good behaviors, worded in a positive way. They are the choices we want students to make such as listen, use kind words, and have a calm body. Green is a symbol for go, keep going and red is a symbol for stop.
We see discipline as an educational process that encourages children to recognize the choices available in order to select behaviors that are effective, appropriate, and acceptable. This process should not humiliate a child or in any way damage his or her self-esteem. We believe the unacceptable behavior should be stopped because an inappropriate choice has been made. In order to accomplish this, we use the following 3-step process:
  1. Within reasonable and consistent limits which are clearly defined in words children can understand, we will encourage students to solve their own problems by helping them verbalize their needs and find a suitable solution.
  1. Teachers’ directions will be stated positively rather than in a negative form. (“Please use a quieter voice” versus “Don’t yell!”). The children’s right to negative emotions such as anger or fear will be respected. Teachers will endeavor to understand the student’s feelings.
  2. Consequences for misbehavior will be of short duration and immediately following the correction. Whenever possible, the consequence will bear relation to the act. Time-outs are frequently used as a short “break” from a tense situation.
If a student consistently does not show positive strides toward behavior that is acceptable for the classroom, our preschool teachers, along with the Preschool Board members reserve the right to dismiss such a student from the program.
  • At what point do you notify the parents if there is a discipline or other type of issue?
We give parents a heads up at pick up time if there was an issue that day or continuing. We talk about what strategies work at home or ways we can support you at home.
  • Do you go on field trips?
Typically, the 4 & 5 year old classes will attend 2-3 field trips per year, if able. Parents are encouraged to attend.
