Each child will participate in developmentally appropriate activities for his or her age level. This Pre-K experience will emphasize growth in language and literacy, math concepts, science, social studies, arts, health and physical development, and social and emotional growth. We use an advanced curriculum integrating Pre-K and Kindergarten objectives to challenge and meet each student’s individual needs. All students will learn how to read before the end of the school year! This is a great program for children who need one extra year before Kindergarten. Your child will have the advantage of receiving a quality Christian preschool education in a small setting with experienced and nurturing teachers.
This private Pre-K program is for children ages 4-5 years old. The Registration Fee of $400 per child is a non-refundable and non-transferable fee, which reserves your child’s spot in the program. It is used to order art supplies, consumable Pre-K work books, a class folder, school book bag, school teeshirt, and a school year subscription to a weekly preschool magazine. The annual tuition can be paid monthly in the amount of $365 for the months of September-May if all payments are made by the 1st of every month when the monthly installment is due. Tuition is due on the first day of each month with late fees beginning on the 5th of each month. Absences will not result in a reduction of tuition as registration is for the full school year (9 months).
Parents will be asked to pack a healthy lunch for their children. Parents will also be asked 2-3 times during the year to provide a large box of crackers, cereal or other healthy snack for the children to share as a mid-morning snack. Children must be completely potty trained to attend the program.
* Mandatory Assessments for all new students!
All new students in our 3 year old program and above entering MHEA or MAEV will be required to attend one mandatory assessment day in March for placement for the 2023-2024 school year. If your child currently attends MHEA or MAEV, your child is exempt from this assessment.
If you have a student entering 3’s or Pre-K you will need to pack a lunch for your child and drop them off and pick them up in our daily carpool. If you have a student entering K, 1st, 2nd, or 3rd, you will need to bring them in the lobby entering door A.
We will inform you by Friday, March 24, 2023 with the results of the assessment. If your child does not meet the minimum standards, you will receive a full refund of your child’s registration fee.
Your child will be given priority when registering for other programs at Ms. Heather’s Educational Adventures. This year’s class will build a solid foundation for future educational experiences. Please let us know if you have any questions.
