Enrollment & Tuition
Preschools are an important component of early childhood education, and our program is designed to improve school readiness of children. We offer a high-quality educational and developmental experience in order to prepare them with the foundational knowledge and skills necessary for school success in kindergarten and beyond!
The first step for applying to our preschool program is to complete all forms in our enrollment packet. If space is available, a registration fee of $100 will be due in order to secure your space. If space is unavailable, your child will be placed on a waiting list.
For program availability and registration contact our Preschool Director, Brooke Vellines.
We are a small school of 91 children with a staff of 10 teachers. No more than 20 children will be enrolled in any classroom at one time. A teacher and an aide are in each classroom, with more than ten children enrolled. As the law requires children aged 3 to 5, our staff-child ratio is one adult for every ten children. For children ages 2-3, our staff-child ratio is one adult for every eight children.
The Preschool admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally available to students. It does not discriminate based on race, color, or national and ethnic origin in administering its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship programs, and other school-administered programs. If we cannot meet a child's needs, we assist parents in locating alternative resources.
All our Preschool staff members are of the highest caliber. Staff is selected based on their academic training, moral attributes, and interest in caring for young children. Our teachers have educational backgrounds, college degrees, or years of early childhood education experience. This knowledge, experience, and ability are augmented with workshops, in-service training, Early Childhood conventions, and professional seminars. Our staff is selected based on character, moral values, and an interest in and obvious concern for children's welfare.
Each employee has their references validated, undergoes a criminal background check, is fingerprinted, and receives a Tuberculin Skin Test and Health Exam before working directly with your children. Staff must receive 16 hours of annual training on best practices when working with children. All staff members are certified in CPR and First Aid; some are MAT certified.
