As early in the year as it may seem to you, we are now getting our preschool classes organized for 2018-2019. We have been busy taking applications and giving tours to those who are interested in St. Stephen’s Preschool.
All the children who are currently enrolled in the school will automatically be placed on the list for the next class in their progression. There is no need to reapply. Once you are part of our community, you remain a part of this community!
It is our policy to give siblings of current students and church members preference in the order we accept children. But we can’t save a space for children whose applications we don’t have. If you have a younger child whom you would like to attend the preschool, please make application now. You can apply online, www.ststephenspreschoolrva.com, pick up a form on the table in the hallway or we can mail or email it to you. Just get that child’s application to the office! We don’t want to fill a class before you have your first choice.
Despite receiving a lot of applications because parents have found us online, we find that your recommendations are our best references. Thank you for letting your friends, colleagues and neighbors know about SSP!
We may still have spaces after contracts have gone out in January, but we may not have space left in the classroom for which your friend’s child might best be suited. So get them to apply now!
Our first round of contracts will go out January 12, 2018.
If you are applying to a Kindergarten program and will not hear until February about your child’s acceptance, let us know and we will hold a space for him/her until a decision has been made.
You have options!
This was our first year with the Red Room 4 and 5 day program and we will offer this option again in 2018. If your child is between 3 and 3 and a half years old by September 1, he or she is is eligible for the Red Room. All Red Room children will be enrolled in the 5 day option unless I hear otherwise from those who prefer the 4 day program.
If you would like your child to participate in an Extended Day program, please email or call Marion with your wishes now. If there is sufficient interest, we may add a second Extended Day class.
Thanks for your help in thinking ahead!
