Preschool Program

Our preschool program begins at 9:00am and finishes at 1:00pm, Monday through Friday. We provide a developmentally appropriate learning environment and activities in order to facilitate all aspects of a child’s development.

St. Mark Community Preschool provides a developmentally based thematic curriculum. Our classrooms provide a weekly lesson plan of activities which include both large and small group time activities, calendar, weather, cooking, music and movement, learning concepts such as shapes, letters, numbers, counting, sorting, and creative arts. Along with our daily lessons, there will be many activities that will enhance your child’s large and fine motor skills, social skills, communication and problem-solving skills, as well as the importance of values.

Extended Programs

We understand the various schedules and needs of our families which is why we also offer an Extended care program. We offer two extended programs:

Our Morning Extended Program is offered every morning, Monday through Friday. Families who drop off between 8:00am and 9:00am will be charged $10.00 for the morning program.

We also offer an Afternoon Extended Program four days per week, Monday through Thursday from 1:00pm to 2:00pm. We do not provide an afternoon program on Fridays due to staff meetings. Families’ can sign up when they drop off in the morning and the $10.00 fee will be collected the following month during our tuition billing cycles.

Summer Program

We offer a four week long summer program held three days per week (Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays) from 9:00am to 1:00pm during the month of July. We enjoy a lot of fun activities, providing opportunities for the children to get wet and enjoy the summer weather.

We recommend that new families enrolled for the Fall school year enroll their child for our summer program so that they are able to acclimate to our school in a fun and relaxed environment.

Our Enrollment Process

We offer tours of our preschool in order for you and your child to learn more about our program. Families who are interested in enrolling should complete an Enrollment Application Form and turn it into the preschool with the $25.00 Application fee. This will put your child on a waiting list for either the current school year should an opening arise or in the future when your child is of age to be enrolled in our program.

We begin Registration for each school year in February. After allowing our current families and siblings of current and returning families to secure their spots for the following year, we begin to contact families on our waiting list. If any additional spots are available we will then open enrollments to touring families until all of our openings have been filled.
