Welcome to Community Preschool!


Deadline Extended!

Join the Community Preschool Board

Submit a Letter of Intent by Friday, January 20 at 9:00 a.m.

We are looking for energetic, organized people to fill open positions on our Board of Directors for the 2017–2018 school year. Serving is a two-year commitment and a great way to get involved. Elections will be held in January, and new officers will immediately begin their terms.

In return for serving on the board, officers receive:

  • A 10% tuition discount
  • An exemption from community job assignments
  • First priority for class registration and parent-help signup

If you are interested in one of the available positions: Write a Letter of Intent stating the position, why you are qualified for and interested in that position (background, personality traits, etc.), and any personal or school-related information you’d like to include (which classes your children have been in, etc.). A small photo may be included with your Letter of Intent to help parents recognize you when voting.

Letters are due by 9:00 a.m. on Friday, January 20. Place your typewritten letter in the President’s bin in the hallway or email it to the President. Voting will take place beginning Friday, January 20 and results of the election will be posted on Friday, January 27.

The open positions are listed here with brief descriptions. Detailed descriptions are also posted on the bulletin board in the hallway, or available by clicking the title for each position below. If you have any questions about these positions, you can send them to the President or Secretary.

Development Coordinator: The Development Coordinator is responsible for developing and administering fundraising for the preschool.

2s/3s Class Coordinator: The 2s/3s Class Coordinator is responsible for maintaining registration paperwork, parent-help schedules, and contact information for the 2s and 3s classes. The coordinator is the main point of contact for families wishing to learn more about the preschool and enroll students.

Publicity Coordinator: The Publicity Coordinator is responsible for promoting the preschool and distributing information about all events and happenings at the preschool. Build a positive image for the preschool through accurate, consistent, and timely communication.

All board members are required to attend monthly board meetings and events.

Pre-Registration

Online pre-registration will begin on Monday, January 30 at 8:00 a.m., and close 
on Friday, February 10 at 8:00 p.m.

Pre-registration determines the order in which you’ll register for 2017–2018
 classes on Friday, February 24. Your registration slot is based on the time that the online form is submitted, and your status at Community Preschool (Current Family, Alumni Family, New Family). Since our classes fill up quickly, we strongly encourage everyone to pre-register and reserve their spot in line.

However, if you do not
 pre-register online you can still come at 11:00 a.m. on February 24 and register after 
the pre-registered families.

Registration

Registration will take place on Friday, February 24.

If you pre-register, you will receive an email with your assigned arrival time. Otherwise, you are welcome to arrive at 11:00 a.m.

Be sure to bring one completed 2017–2018 Registration Packet for each child, and your checkbook for your $70 non-refundable registration fee. Download the Registration Packet (available soon), or printed copies will soon be available in the preschool hallway.

Find the answers to your questions on our Register for Classes page, or contact a class coordinator.


Third Quarter Tuition
Due Friday, December 2

Tuition for the third quarter is due by Friday, December 2, 2016. Please place your tuition payment in the Treasurer’s lock box, located on the northwest wall in the main school hallway. Make checks payable to “Community Preschool” and add your child’s name and class in the memo of the check to ensure correct credit to your account.

Click here to visit the Tuition and Schedule page and find the tuition amount for your child’s class.

Contact the treasurer Emily M. with any questions about tuition. If you are having difficulty with paying tuition according to the schedule, please contact us immediately. We are willing to work with you, but it is best to have a plan before tuition is due and late fees are incurred.

(Tuition for fourth quarter will be due on Friday, February 10, 2017.)

Openings in Current 2016–2017 Classes

We are currently registering for openings in the following classes:

  • Miss Jill’s Tuesday/Thursday 3s from 9:00–11:30 a.m.

***Please note that our class for ages 2.5 is full, and there is a substantial waiting list. ***

Each month you have an opportunity to purchase affordable books for your child through Scholastic. It is a great program and each book you purchase earns points for Community Preschool to purchase educational materials and books for the classrooms.
