Preschool Application Information 2021-2022


Dear Parents:
 
Thank you for your interest in our Preschool. We understand that there are many school options for your child, and we are excited to partner with you and your family in providing the best preschool experience possible.  This past year has taught us the importance of community. We do not take these relationships for granted, and we greatly value the children and families in our preschool communities.

Our hope is that in the Fall of 2021, we will be back to running our traditional program with the ability to engage in our Pre-K fun events, field trips, parent involvement (not just virtually!), and our wonderful classroom celebrations which allow families to interact and build relationships beyond the classroom.  We must also anticipate that we may not quite be ready for those activities.

We believe that even in the worst of circumstances, our teachers have not only provided a safe and engaging space, but are thriving with their students.  They are learning new ways to teach, new ways to engage, and putting new spins on some more traditional activities.  
 
We are confident that regardless of our Fall 2021 protocols your kids will experience our foundational goals: socializing, learning through play, elementary campus-life, Kindergarten-readiness, and a joy of learning.

We look forward to starting or continuing this educational journey with you and your family!
