We also require an activity fee of $100 per family, which is due by September 1st. This fee allows us to bring activities in-house to the preschool.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the hours? Class times are 9AM-1PM. Drop-off begins at 8:45 AM, and pick-up is 1:00 PM for both programs.
Are there full-day or extended-day options? Not currently. Our licensing exemption requires us to adhere to strict hourly guidelines.
Do students eat lunch? Yes, we ask that parents send a lunch for their child(ren) each day. Please do not pack any items including peanuts, peanut butter, or other nuts. We will make sure that children eat only the food packed by their own parents; no sharing food will be permitted for the safety of all our students.
Do parents send snacks daily? No, we ask parents to donate specific snack items on a rotating schedule. We only ask for certain items within our "safe snack list" that follows specific allergy guidelines for our students.
What is the allergy policy? For our snacks that are given to all students in our preschool/MMO, we don't allow any food items that include peanuts, tree nuts, milk/dairy, or eggs in the ingredients.
What items do parents send daily? We ask parents to send each child with a bag including diapers/pull-ups, wipes, a change of clothes appropriate for the weather, a lunch, and a water bottle or sippy cup for water (no juice, please). Please label bags, lunches, and bottles/cups with your child's name.
What is the difference between MMO and preschool? MMO students only attend 1-2 days per week, while preschool students attend 2-5 days per week. MMO is geared toward younger children who need to learn to socialize with peers and be with people beyond their immediate family members. MMO is structured more freely, with more free play times centered around the children's attention spans. Preschool classes, on the other hand, follow a curriculum and a more defined daily schedule. Preschool classes also have specials included in their daily schedules (see below).
What curriculum is used in the preschool? We buy yearly licenses to use the ABC Jesus Loves Me curriculum. It is a Bible-based curriculum which prepares children for school in a fun way. The children learn academic concepts in connection with Bible stories, and social skills through character-building scriptures and peer interaction. We allow time for free choice play centers in addition to recess. Our teachers also supplement the curriculum with games, arts & crafts, and other activities.
What "special" activities do students have? For the 2018-19 school year, we plan to offer music and chapel lessons weekly and PE twice weekly for our preschool classes. Our Pre-K (4 & 5 year olds) class will also have a Spanish lesson and science experiment lesson weekly. We schedule monthly fun/dress-up days for our students, and also plan special events throughout the year when parents or other family members are invited to attend for holidays or other special occasions.
Monday - PE, Tuesday - Music, Wednesday - PE, Thursday - Spanish (4&5 only), Friday - Chapel.
