ONLY 10 MORE WEEKS OF LUNCH BUNCH! LUNCH BUNCH IS A WONDERFUL WAY TO HELP YOUR CHILD TRANSITION TO KINDERGARTEN! Our “Lunch Bunch” program provides your child with the opportunity to experience a longer day, to eat lunch with friends, to enjoy more art and center time, rest and then play outside again! Please contact the preschool office if you are interested in signing up your child for the Lunch Bunch program. 

MARCH 21- WEAR CRAZY SOCKS TO SCHOOL! World Down Syndrome Day is celebrated on 3/21 because people with Down syndrome are born with 3 copies of their 21st chromosome. Around the world people will be wearing colorful socks to show support for the inclusion and well-being of people with Down syndrome. Let’s all rock our socks!

SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY! As the weather starts to get warmer, we know that many of our students will want to stay and play a while after school dismisses. Therefore, we wanted to share a few safety reminders. Our church protection policies require that children be supervised by a parent or other qualified adult when they are on the church grounds or in the church buildings. Please do not allow your child to enter the preschool building after preschool hours to use the bathroom, etc. unless he/she is accompanied by an adult. Children are required to be supervised by “sight and sound” when playing on the church grounds after preschool dismissal. Parents must remain within the playground fence if children are playing on the playground after school. Please do not allow your child to climb on the fencing or to throw rocks from the bench area. Also, the sandbox cover is not designed to hold the weight of children. Please don’t allow your children to climb on it. Thank you in advance for helping to ensure the safety of our preschool students. 

SHOES FOR PRESCHOOL MUST HAVE CLOSED TOES AND CLOSED HEELS WITH RUBBERIZED SOLES. Injuries are far too common with flip-flops, open sandals, and slick-soled shoes. Please understand that we are compelled to enforce this policy in order to help avoid injuries. Thank you for helping our staff to keep our little friends safe!

REFERRAL PROGRAM- Thank you to the many families who referred their friends to our preschool program for the upcoming school year. There are still some openings left in our program. If you know of someone who is looking for a preschool for their child, we hope that you will tell them about Mt. Pisgah. If your referral enrolls for the 2018-2019 school year, you will receive a $50 credit towards your child’s May 2018 tuition. Thank you!!
