Feb. 14, 2013. Boone United Methodist Preschool announces registration for fall classes. Registration for returning students and their siblings began on Feb. 1. Registration for church members begins Feb. 15. Persons with no previous connection to the preschool may register on or after March 1. Registration continues until classes fill up. Space is available on a first come, first served basis.
Application forms are available on the church’s website which is www.booneumc.org. The form may be delivered to the preschool office, to the church office, or may be mailed. It cannot be returned by email because it must be accompanied by a registration fee and a tuition deposit. Scholarship forms are available from the preschool office. The office is open from 8 until 2 daily, but doors are locked during preschool hours for the safety of the children. Visitors are invited to ring the doorbell if they find the main preschool entry locked.
Boone United Methodist Preschool is a morning program for 2, 3, and 4 year olds. The preschool program provides experiences for children in an environment that encourages the child to ask questions, explore, experiment, make friends, and learn what it means to be a child of God. Our program includes a balance of guided play, creative art, outdoor activities, stories, science, games, and age-appropriate worship.
A Parents’ Morning Out program is also available for children who turn one by August 31 each year. It is designed to allow parents to begin the separation process with their children in a safe, clean, caring and stimulating environment.
The preschool’s Transitional Kindergarten program is designed to meet the needs of children who would benefit from an additional preschool year before entering kindergarten. We believe that because children are unique and reach developmental milestones at different rates, chronological age should not be the only factor in determining readiness for kindergarten.
Questions about the preschool’s curriculum, class size, schedule, and faculty should be directed to the preschool director, Dana Holden. She can be reached at (828) 264-6092 or at [email protected]
