It is hard to believe, but it is time to begin enrolling students for the 2017-2018 school year. We are extremely excited as plans for next year unfold.

For parents who register by April 1, 2017 we are offering a $20 discount off of the registration fee.

Our current students and siblings were allowed the opportunity to enroll first. Enrollment is now open to any member of the surrounding counties!   Classes for children 12 Months – 4 years old will be from 9am – 1pm.   All 5 day classes need a minimum of 8 students enrolled otherwise these classes will not be offered. If not enough students are enrolled, your child will be placed in a four day class that ends at 1pm or you may receive a refund of your registration.

Three and four year olds must be completely toilet trained and independent with toileting and dressing. Pull-ups are not permitted. All children entering the three year old program must be able to use the bathroom facilities with adult assistance limited to help with snaps, buttons, and zippers.

All children entering the four year old program should be able to use the bathroom facilities without adult assistance. Four year old children must be able to communicate their needs in an understandable manner and must be able to work cooperatively in small group and large group activities.

You must submit your enrollment form and registration fee in order to hold your child’s place. Placement will be on a first come, first served basis. Please return your completed registration form and registration fee as soon as possible to ensure a place in our program.

Preschoolers in Action!

cards

Our October Community Service project was for the military.  The children made cards for servicemen to thank them for all they do.  Operation Gratitude is an organization that sends care packages to overseas military, first responders and other servicemen.   The cards will be mailed along with paracord bracelets that volunteers made.   Here is a link to this organization:  http://www.operationgratitude.com/operation-gratitude/

For our September Comminity Service project, the preschool families donated items for the Henry County Humane Societyhttps://www.facebook.com/HenryCountyHumaneSocietyInc/ .  Thank you for helping your children understand the importance of helping those in need….even our animals!
