Where do I drop off and pick up my child?
You may enter through the Weber Street entrance and bring your child to his or her classroom on the second floor, or use the carpool lane to put your child in the care of a teacher aid or pick up your child without getting out of your car.
This option is particularly helpful to parents with other small children, or for parents who need to get to work or an appointment right away after dropping their child off for school. This option is available to all First Pres Preschool families.
Do you offer early drop off?
Yes, we offer an early drop off beginning at 8 a.m. It may be used as needed. A staff member will pick up your child from you at the carpool lane. After 8:10 a.m., you may still use the early drop off; however, you will need to bring your child to room 232. There is a $6 fee per usage.
Regular Classes begin at 9 a.m., and the classroom doors will be open at that time.
What is Lunch Bunch?
We offer an hour long "lunch bunch" program Monday through Thursday each week. This is a great option for parents who work part time or who need an extra hour to run errands or meet someone for lunch.
If you would like your child to attend our lunch bunch program on any given day, you will just need to mark the "lunch bunch" box on your child's classroom sign in sheet. You will also need to provide a peanut free lunch for your child. Your child's teacher will take your child and his/her belongings to the lunch bunch room at 12 p.m. You will pick your child up at 1 p.m. During lunch bunch, your child will eat lunch with friends and then have the opportunity for free play in the classroom. The cost for "lunch bunch" is $6 per day.
