We strive to provide a quality early learning experience where each child thrives and knows that their heavenly Father created them and loves them

Class OFferings

PREschool

The Preschool class is for 3 and 4 year olds who are fully potty trained and not entering into Kindergarten the following year. This 2 ½ hour class meets from 9:00-11:30 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This class would have a teacher to student ratio not to exceed 2:16.

Pre-k

The Pre-K classes are for 5 year-olds and older 4's that will be eligible for Kindergarten the following year.
If a child will not be eligible to attend Kindergarten the following fall due to their age, it will be up to the discretion of the Administrator and Preschool Board whether the child can be enrolled into a Pre-K class. This determination would be made on an individual, as needed basis.
There are two options for the Pre-K class:
• The AM class meets for 2 ½ hours from 9:00-11:30 am on Mon-Wed-Fri.
• The PM class meets for 2 ½ hours from 12:30 - 3:00 pm Monday through Thursday.

We follow the Teays Valley School District's calendar for holidays and other days off school, as well as for calamity days. Please click here for the Teays Valley calendar.

MOVEMENT & OUTDOOR ACTIVITY

Large motor movement and outdoor play is essential for young children to thrive. We will play outside daily, as weather permits. Children will not be taken outside when the temperature (wind chill and heat index factored in) drop below 25 degrees or rise above 90 degrees. If the situation necessitates, we will also adjust outdoor time due to rain, threatening weather, ozone warnings etc. On days that outdoor play is not possible, indoor gross motor activities are scheduled.

FaMILY FIELD TRIPS

We attempt to schedule field trips three times each year. Our fall field trip is to a local pumpkin patch. Our winter field trip is to a local hands-on museum. Our spring field trip is to the Historical Living Farm at Slate Run Metro Park. Parents who wish to participate in our field trips are required to transport their own child, or make arrangements with another adult for the transportation of their child. Preschool staff is not able to transport any children for the field trips.
