Spring Break is Almost Here!

We will take our first spring break next Monday, March 7 through Friday, March 11. Our second spring break will be Monday, April 4 through Friday, April 8. You may wonder why we take two spring breaks! We do this in order to avoid having so many teachers absent and having so many substitute teachers in our classrooms during those weeks. Safety is our number one priority, and substitutes are not completely familiar with the children and our policies and procedures.

An extra week is already included at the end of the school year to make up for the second spring break. Thank you so much for your understanding of this special circumstance!

Join us at Preschool Summer Camp!

We are offerring three weeks of Summer Camp:


Let's Pretend, May 16-20

Exploring God's World, May 23-27

A Camping We Will Go, June 13-17


Camps take place Monday through Friday from 8:45 a.m. to 12 p.m.


Age Requirements:

Youngest: Children who were 2 on or before Dec. 31, 2015

Oldest: Children who just completed Pre-K


Preschool Camp is open to anyone, so please invite your neighbors and friends!

Visit the Weekday Preschool website for camp details, policies and registration forms.

If you register and pay by April 1, you get the Early Bird Discount of $100 per camp!
