Preschool Entrance Doors
If you signed up for EFT via Tuition Express, October's tuition will be debited on Wednesday, Oct 10. All tuition is considered late by the 15th of the month.
~ Don't forget to sign your child in and out every day
~ Pick up time is 2:00 pm. Many of our teachers have their own school aged children to pick up after they leave preschool. If you are going to be late, please call 972-547-7000 so that the receptionist can relay a message to your child’s teacher. A late pick-up fee of $10 will be added to your child's statement if they are picked up after 2:15.
On Monday, October 15 and Tuesday October 16, Tiny Texans Photography will be at the preschool. They will take pictures on a pony and offer each student (those that are comfortable) a free pony ride. The pictures taken will be available to view and purchase at the Promiseland desk, within two weeks. Western attire (chaps, vest, hat and bandana) will be provided by the photographer.
We ask that you make sure your child has a spare change of clothes in their backpacks each day.
In addition, we like to keep extra on hand. If you have any spare children's clothing (preschool ages both boys and girls) mainly shorts and pants, we are collecting them in the Promiseland Offices.
