For the 2020-2021 school year we have developed a plan to allow our students to safety return to Preschool. For details on our plan or questions about our new procedures please reach out to us below!
We offer an Extended Learning Program every day from 11:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. as a way to continue your child’s learning and to prepare them for a longer school day. Children will start out with an hour of play in the Family Life Center, followed by a social lunch break. After lunch, there will be an hour of teaching, a brief rest period, and the day is finished with another playground time session. Each part of the day works to build up the gross and fine motor, developmentally appropriate learning and social skills necessary for Kindergarten. The cost of the program is very affordable at approximately $6 per hour.
Kids Express Preschool offers an variety of Summer Camps from the end of May through July, with an exciting new theme each week! Our camps are open to the community and serve children 2 1/2 to 6 years of age. Camps run Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 am to 12 noon.
Enrollment is limited and applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. The balance is payable the first day of camp.

This month at chapel, we are focusing on Missionaries – God’s people who tell others about Jesus. Brian and Jody Williams are missionaries in Cambodia. Mrs. Williams was a preschool director before leaving for Cambodia four years ago. They have been home for the last three months for a visit. Mrs. Williams came to share with us about living in Cambodia in December. She shared about their homes, transportation, religion, school and toys which the children play. She brought clothing for the children to try on and spoke with them about jobs children would have in Cambodia. Mrs. Williams trains ladies, while sharing the gospel, to have their own business and to support their children. One way is through childcare which is why she is helping a Cambodian start a Christian preschool. Her husband works with young men and has a bicycle ministry (repairing and providing them) since that is the mode of transportation.
Mrs. McFarland introduced us to missionaries around the world and then brought the lesson to how children can serve Jesus as a missionary right here. She discussed praying, sharing, helping others, and giving. At our chapel in January, we reviewed Cambodia and Mrs. William’s visit. The children made an ornament to help remind them to pray for them.
For our mission project, which will run for one month, January 10 – February 10, we will collect pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and bills towards purchasing items for a start up Christian Preschool in Cambodia. This preschool will present the gospel to the children and parents in a Buddhist nation. We are hoping to raise $400.00 or $80 per class to purchase many requested items, all to teach color and shapes. Several of the items we are purchasing are color books, shape books, a colorful parachute, color paddles, color and shape beanbags and large stringing beads.
Now, I am suggesting you help your child find chores or activities in order to raise his/her money to bring into the classroom. Use this time to teach your child about money and giving a portion to others. There is a container in each classroom to collect funds.
Thank you for participating in helping your child understands the role of missionaries and how we serve others here in our own homes, community and school.
