FAQs

How often do you have Bible class?

Once a week all the children go into the Chapel Room for Bible.  Typically, the Principal or a a Church Representative leads our children with Bible stories and songs, and develops a weekly curriculum, centered on Bible truths to guide us.

Do you have a special music class?

In addition to the music and songs presented in the classroom, the children attend a music class once a week for approximately 20 minutes.  The Preschool Principal will organize music classes and programs with support from the staff and parents.

Do you offer scholarships?

Need based scholarships are sometimes available.  If you are in need and interested in applying for a scholarship, please see the Preschool Principal for an application.

Do you provide snack?

We ask that your child bring his/her snack daily.  Please send nutritious snacks such as fresh fruit, vegetables, crackers, cheese, yogurt, granola, and applesauce.  Water will be provided for your child.  The teacher will let you know on days when snack is not needed such as for a birthday party, holiday celebration or cooking activity in the classroom.

Do you have fundraisers?

Yes.  In this age of increasing expenses and decreasing school funding, fundraisers are a part of every school.  We are attempting to limit the number of fundraisers we have.  Yet to purchase needed equipment, we must raise money in addition to yearly tuition.

Do you have a “Sick Policy”?

Regular attendance is important for continuity in a child’s development; however, a child should be kept home whenever there are symptoms of illness. Your child should not be brought to Preschool if one of the following conditions exists:

  1. Fever, diarrhea or vomiting
  2. Rash or discharge from eyes, ears or nose
  3. Contagious disease

Children should be fever-free without medication and not have been vomiting or having diarrhea for 24 hours before returning to school.

If your child becomes ill during school hours, they will be separated from the class and parents will be called to come and pick them up.

What happens if there is an emergency evacuation?

Fire drills are conducted on a monthly basis. If for any reason the Preschool must be evacuated for any length of time, children will first be taken to Fishburne Military School (next door to church). If we must relocate further away, children will be taken to St. John’s Catholic Church office on Maple Ave. (house next to parking lot). Parents will be contacted as soon as possible. Children will always remain under the supervision and care of Preschool staff.

What is your policy for inclement weather?

We follow Waynesboro City School, but may make an alternate decision if the safety of you or your child is in question.  Watch for announcements by text messages, notices by email, phone calls, or Facebook.

If Waynesboro City Schools are running one hour late, we will open on regular schedule.  If Waynesboro City Schools are running two hours late, the Preschool will open at 9:30 a.m.  Extended Day parents will be notified as to opening time.  If Waynesboro City Schools are closed, Preschool will be closed and Extended Day parents will be notified as to opening time.
