CELEBRATES 43 YEARS!!!
Presbyterian Preschool & Kindergarten is very
proud and excited to announce that we are 43 years old this month!!! The school opened in January 1976
with only one 3 year old and one 4 year old class
and about 12 children! Today we have close to 120
children with 16 staff members!! And lots and lots
of wonderful families!!!
Parents, please be sure to label anything your child
brings to school, such as coats, jackets, rain gear,
school bag, and lunch bag. This ensures that your
child comes home with the correct items!
please be advised that we cannot let anyone in the
building before 8:55 a.m. for the morning or 12:15
p.m. for afternoon classes.
please be sure to pick your child up on time to
avoid upsetting your child when all the other
children are gone and they are the only one left
waiting for you.
If you have questions about your tuition
payments, your PIN, or need a 2018 Tax Statement,
please contact our bookkeeper, Jan Rex by email at
email@example.com or by phone,
301-977-5729. When mailing your tuition payment to
the school address, please mark payments to the
attention of Jan Rex, bookkeeper.

WHAT IS THE
The Enrichment Program is designed to extend the
time at school by an hour and a half (from
11:30 am to 1 pm) with extra curriculum and LOTS
of FUN!!! Children eat lunch together, enjoy
another circle time, story and planned
activities such as a game, art project, community
caring project, and indoor or outdoor large motor
skill activities. The children have a 'Theme' or
an 'Author of the Month' for Enrichment in
addition to their 9-11:30 a.m. curriculum. Please
email from any page of this website for more
information or to sign up! The Afternoon 'Plus'
classes have the option of signing up for 'Lunch
Enrichment' on T/T and/or W/F from 11:30 a.m. to
12:15 p.m. Please email or call the school office
for more information.
M/W/F 4 YEAR OLD CLASSES
Consider adding our 'optional
fourth day' for your Pre-Kindergartener! The
Thursday class offers a busy day working on lots
of curriculum items that may need extra review as
well as offering lots of new and exciting
activities and topics! This class is a wonderful
compliment to your M/W/F class and helps to better
prepare your child for Kindergarten next year. The
children will have the opportunity to meet a few
new friends as well as see their classmates from
their M/W/F class.
