SHANDON PRESCHOOL PROSPECTIVE FAMILIES
Dear Prospective Preschool Parents,
Shandon United Methodist Preschool and Kindergarten, a ministry by and to the congregation and community, was developed in response to the need for high quality child care in the Columbia area. The program accepts children ages three months to four years. We recognize, however, that the need for this care far exceeds our capability to serve all interested families.
Therefore, the following order for enrollment has been established:
Order for Enrollment – Part-Time Program:
- Children currently enrolled
- Children of Shandon members with sibling(s) currently enrolled;
- Children of non-Shandon members with sibling(s) currently enrolled;
- Children of Shandon members with no sibling(s) currently enrolled;
- All other children.
Exception: In the event a teacher has a child who needs a space, priority will be given. This applies to church clergy as well.
Order for Enrollment – Full-Time Program:
Same policy as Part Time Program
Except for newborns, children must have reached the appropriate age for their respective classes by September first of the year they enroll. In cases involving newborns, children must be three months old before enrollment in the program. If enrollment takes place after September 1, parents must reserve a space for the child by paying all applicable tuition and fees.
We would be pleased to have you include us in the life of your child and family, and we look forward to sharing in your child's growth and development. Recognizing that each child is an individual with unique gifts, our staff strives to provide enjoyable experiences of learning and playing within a Christian environment while also fostering a sense of community within your child's group.
Again, let me express my pleasure at your interest in our program. If you have questions or concerns regarding our program, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
