We are getting ready to open our doors on another school year! Last year at this time we were busy implementing and creating many new policies and procedures all in an effort to keep our children and their families and our staff healthy and safe from COVID-19.


At this time, we are structuring our new school year much the same as last year. We will continue to wear masks (ages 2+). We will continue to clean every toilet and sink after each use. We will keep a small footprint for use within the building and we will not allow anyone other than students and staff into the building. These and other COVID measures will continue to be supported and maintained until a time when the CDC and DCF and Beneva Christian Church all determine it is time to relax protocols.


Parents will still see forms in their student folder re: COVID-19 and changes in many of our policies and regulations. Drop-off will continue to include temperature checks, masks, leaving walking shoes outside and putting on preschool shoes once in the building. These are just a few of the changes made due to COVID-19 and we pray that all these measures matter, that they will continue be respected and supported by our families.


This year the following staff members will be here working together to make this year fun, silly, artsy and musical, adventurous and glamorous, mathematical and scientifically challenging:
