Enrollment Process & Forms

FOR PRESCHOOL CLASSES:  Enrollment begins mid-January for families currently enrolled in our preschool/childcare program.  Families who have requested to be placed on the Interest List will be contacted the week of Jan 21 to be placed into classes (selecting from available slots).  At the Open House on Sunday, Jan 27 from 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM, families can meet teachers, see classrooms, and pay the $75 registration fee  ($25.00 for summer) to secure their spot. Registration fees NOT received by Sunday, January 27 will result in forfeiting the selected reserved spot. Registration will also be open to walk-ins at the Open House on a first come, first serve basis for open spots.  To be added to the Interest List, contact the office (268-0165).

 

FOR CHILDCARE:  Childcare is available for any 3, 4 or 5 year old as space allows.


We maintain a list of those interested in enrolling their child in future years. 
If you would like to be added to that list, contact Kathy Thompson, Director, for more information.


Registration requirements are as follows:

 3 years old by September 15 for TTH classes and MWF PM

 4 years old by September 15 for MWF AM and M-F classes

 3 years old for childcare only (may be after the September 15 date as space allows)

 Must be fully potty-trained.


It is our policy that all children attending St. John Preschool and Childcare Center be fully potty trained to be considered ready for their experience in our program. This includes all self-care skills that accompany using the bathroom: dressing and undressing, using the toilet, and wiping. This will enable your child to be more independent and allow him/her to gain more from his/her preschool/childcare experience. It also allows our staff to be more fully available to all children engaged in learning experiences in the classrooms.

  • Playdough

    Every day, preschoolers have an opportunity to play with play dough. Each family will be assigned one week during the school year to make homemade play dough at home. This is a  special time for you and your preschooler to spend together in the kitchen, following a recipe,  and creating play dough in any color you choose. We like to change the play dough every week,  to keep it fresh and as germ free as possible. A reminder slip will be sent home a week or two before your scheduled week. 


    Play Dough Recipe
