St. Peter’s Lutheran Preschool exists for members of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church and members of the community who wish their children to experience a Christian early educational childhood program.
Acceptance into St. Peter’s Lutheran Preschool will be determined by the Board of Education, using the following criteria:
- Parents must be in accord with the religious program.
- Parents must be willing to cooperate with the school in all matters relating to the program.
- Children in the Begindergarten program must be five by the 1st day of January and have gone to preschool previously. Children in the four-year-old program must be four by September 1st, and children in the three-year-old program must be three by September 1st of the enrollment year. Children in the Young Threes class must be two years, six months at the time of enrollment. (Exceptions will be considered and based on interview and observation of a child.)
- Children must be able to use the toilet independently and able to function without a nap during school hours.
- A child’s enrollment is contingent upon meeting the qualifications in items 1 – 4 above and upon availability of classroom space.
- No child will be denied enrollment on the basis of race, sex, creed and/or national origin.
St. Peter’s Lutheran Preschool admits students of any race, color, or national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship programs, and other school-administered programs.
SPECIAL NEEDS ENROLLMENT
Children with special needs will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Evaluation will consist of a meeting between, but not limited to, the parents, the child, the faculty, any therapists involved with the child, and any other parties pertinent to the child.
If a child is accepted into the preschool program, there will be a two-month probationary period during which it will be decided if the program is proving mutually beneficial to the child as well as his/her classmates.
