Our Savior’s Preschool is a non-profit organization. Fees are payable in advance and due by the tenth of each month. Because the tuition is minimal, deductions will not be made for absences. Tuition checks can be given to the teachers, dropped in the drop box outside the director’s door, or mailed to the church. If paying with cash, DO NOT put it in the tuition box. Please give it to a teacher and obtain a receipt. Make checks payable to: OUR SAVIOR’S PRESCHOOL and please put your child’s full name on the memo line of your check.
DROP OFF AND PICK UP
When the child is dropped off, the adult will need to bring the child upstairs to the preschool and sign them in on the appropriate sign-in sheet. Children may not be dropped off at the outside door or in the downstairs lobby. Please list all adults who may be picking up your child on the registration form. If someone else is to pick up your child be sure to give the details to the teacher before class begins. The teacher WILL NOT release your child to a stranger. The Preschool will not be responsible for children left after hours. PLEASE BE PROMPT IN PICKING UP YOUR CHILD.
VACATIONS AND HOLIDAYS
The Preschool follows the Laurel School District schedule except for Christmas break and release for summer break in May. Notices will be sent home with the children prior to any departure from the regular Laurel School District holiday vacations.
Occasionally, funerals at the church necessitate the canceling of school for a day. The church office will give us as much advance notice as possible so you can plan for unexpected cancellations of school.
We recommend, but do not require a current immunization record. Your child will be required to have current immunizations before starting kindergarten.
ENROLLMENT and ABSENCES
Enrollment is encouraged for the full term (September-May). Please notify the teacher if your child will be absent for any period of time. If you need to withdraw your child from the school, please give as much notice as possible and that month’s tuition will be required. If after a period of time, it is felt the child is not ready for Preschool, or if a child exhibits extreme or disruptive behavior, we will require that the child be withdrawn.
SNACKS AND DRINKS
Snacks and drinks for each day will be provided by the parents. Parents will be provided with a suggested list and schedule. Healthy snacks are preferred.
The only item your child needs to bring to preschool is a FULL-SIZE backpack with their name on it. It needs to be large enough to hold 9 x 12 paper without being folded. The Preschool will supply all other items.
