What does my child need to enroll?
A non-refundable registration fee is due upon registration. The required documents are a School Entrance Health Form and a School Registration Form. All children need to be toilet trained.
Do you have to be a Lutheran or a member of Trinity Lutheran Church to attend the preschool?
No. TLC Preschool welcomes children of all faiths and backgrounds. Our curriculum includes a daily children's Bible story taught by our Christian staff, and monthly chapel times with Pastor Foote.
What is the ratio of teachers to students?
TLC Preschool maintains a 7 to 1 student to staff ratio for 3 year olds and an 8 to 1 ratio for 4 and 5 year olds.
How is the TLC Preschool funded?
We have three sources of income: tuition, fundraising and church/public donations.
Are there any fees for late pick-up?
We reserve the right to charge a fee of $5.00 for drop-off prior to 8:50 am or for pickup after 12:10 pm.
Are snacks provided for my child?
Parents are asked to provide a snack and drink for their own child each day. We encourage nutritious snacks such as fruit, raw vegetables, crackers and cheese. No nuts!
Do you accommodate children with allergies?
Yes. We try to accommodate most allergies within our school environment. We are a "nut free classroom" (including any labels that say "may contain nuts")
Does TLC Preschool take any field trips?
Yes! In the Fall, we take a trip to an area orchard or pumpkin patch. In the Spring, we visit a community building or an animal farm. Field Trips are for all our preschool children regardless of the days they regularly attend, unless otherwise noted. Most places allow siblings, however parents are responsible for their own entrance fees.
Will my child get to play outdoors during Preschool?
Yes! Weather permitting, children play outside each school day. We have a fenced-in play yard behind the building.
