Movement Class by Stretch-n-Grow   

Children enjoy many physical activities throughout their day here at preschool and one of our long-standing, popular programs is  Movement.  Our instructor provides music and dance, creative expression and pre-gymnastics in a safe and fun environment.  Dress in non-restrictive clothing, wearing socks and tennis shoes to get the most out of this program. VPK students may participate with annual fee of $40.

Special Programs

During the year, we will have several programs where the children will perform for an audience.  We will also provide parent/teacher meetings and family functions throughout the year.  Additional Special Programs may include speakers, outside instructors with special talents and our own staff members sharing their gifts and talents.

Special Events

During the year, some of the holiday celebrations and special events may require additional help. Please make other arrangements for younger siblings.  We look forward to including everyone throughout the course of the year.

Summer Camp

Camp hours only are from 9am-1pm, 3 or 5 days per week or: extend your fun by staying all day. Camp is posted and Registration begins each April for current students and siblings (ages 2-10). Watch for this flyer to come out every April and reserve your fun!

Screenings And Evaluations

Vision and hearing are major factors in a child’s development. They can affect school achievement, personality, and adjustments to life. Vision and hearing screening tests are given to all children ages 3.5 and older and you will receive the results of these tests. During the year, your child’s teacher will formally assess each child’s progress. You will receive copies of these evaluations mid-year during Parent/Teacher conferences and again at the end of the school year. Parents are always welcome to call the preschool to schedule a conference with a staff member anytime there are concerns or questions.

Chapel Time

“Chapel Moments” will be held on a regular basis in the Sanctuary by the Pastor or a church member. Parents and siblings are always welcome.   

   Musical Moments

Music can be found in the classrooms daily.  “Musical Moments” are presented on a regular basis as an opportunity to further explore and experience the wonders of music.
