We believe that family involvement is a key part of our children's success.  We encourage this by sending home family activities that reinforce the content/unit that is being covered. Preschoolers love the thought of "homework."  These activities may include worksheets, interactive websites, games, or crafts.  Have fun doing these activities as a family.

We also welcome any and all volunteers.  Please indicate on your enrollment form names, phone numbers, and availability of people that would like to volunteer.  Per church policy, we require that a criminal records check be completed for all volunteers.
​​Your child's safety is very important to us.  Once all children have arrived, all outside doors will be locked. Authorize someone other than the persons listed on the enrollment forms to pick up your child.  Prior notification must be given to the preschool staff.  If this person is unknown to the preschool staff member, proof of identity will be requested.
Please refer to the school calendar for all other scheduling information.  Adjustments may be made to the calendar for snow days.

Mondays- 8:00-11:00 AM

Wednesdays- 8:00-11:00 AM
