Preschool Programming

We are excited to announce that registration for 3-Year Old and 4-Year Old Preschool will open next Sunday, January 31st. A link will be shared in next week’s newsletter sent out by Mr. Zirkel and a link will be posted here on the Preschool Website to register through a Google Form. There are limited spots available in both 3-Year Old and 4-Year Old Sessions. Registration will be open from Sunday, January 31st to Wednesday, February 3rd. We will inform all families of whether they have been accepted for enrollment or not by the end of the school day on Friday, February 5th. A waiting list for those that have not been accepted will be created at that time and we will notify families on the waiting list later only if a spot becomes available for their child.
