We are delighted that you are interested in enrolling your child in the First Community Church Preschool. We look forward to welcoming your child!

The following information will be helpful as you register.

BIRTH DATE CUT OFF: Children must be 2, 3, or 4 by September 30, 2018 to enroll in the Twogether, three-year-old or four-year-old classes. The four-year-old classes also welcome children who are five and are being given an extra year before kindergarten. The September 30 cutoff is used by most area school districts, which makes a smooth transition between preschool and elementary school.

TWOGETHER CLASS: A two-year-old and a parent or caregiver come together to each class. The class is a beginning experience for parents and children. The enrolled adult will receive helpful information about two-year-old development and parenting strategies. It is a wonderful way to give your two-year-old focused time in a rich environment!

THREES, FOURS AND FIVES: Our three, four and five-year-old classrooms maintain ratios no higher than 8:1. Children in the three-year-old classes must be toilet trained when school begins. Our four-year-old classes welcome children who are five but not yet in kindergarten.

TUITION: The Preschool is a non-profit, fully-licensed early childhood program. Fees are evaluated annually to cover the cost of the program, and tuition is the sole source of income. The annual tuition is divided into ten equal payments, with the first payment due in August. Payment can be made through automatic account deductions or automatic credit card payments. Payment information will be included in your confirmation packet, which you will receive in June. We have added a small supply fee to cover the cost of the many fun, creative and interesting materials that are part of our curriculum. Click here to access the Tuition Payment Plan document.

After February 23, the Preschool Director will begin making placements and confirming them by email. A packet with paperwork will be mailed to you in June. Children are placed in the following order:
(1) Currently enrolled children having an extra year at any level

(4) New children (accepting registrations beginning Friday, February 16, 2018)

Priority will be given to First Community Church members in each category of placement. Any registration received after February 15 will be dated on the day it is received and processed after the first group has been placed. Children will be placed in the first choice of class whenever possible. If the first choice has been filled, you will be called and offered any other option that is open. You can accept a placement and also be on the waitlist for your first choice class.
