Parent Open House!

We're getting our classrooms ready! 

We'll see parents at 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary on Wednesday, August 31st.  After a brief welcome and introduction of our staff, parents will have a chance to visit classrooms and meet teachers. 

On Thursday, September 1st, our students will get a chance to come and visit their new rooms!  THERE WILL BE NO CARPOOL ON THIS DAY.  PLEASE WALK YOU CHILD TO THE ROOM.  Our 3s and 4s will be dropped at their classrooms and spend from 9:05 until 10:30 with their new friends.  Our 2s will come for a "playdate" visit with their mom or dad.  (To avoid the rush and bustle of the 9:05 arrivals, you might want to wait until a little later to visit.)

We're looking forward to seeing you!

Welcome Back!

We've mailed out our Welcome Back letters and 2011-2012 calendars this week, but here's a sneak preview for those of you who check the blog!

We're getting ready for the start of the 2011-2012 school year at Wilmington Island Presbyterian Preschool. Once again we will strive for a caring, Christian environment that provides the skills, attitudes, and knowledge needed to enable each of our students to achieve his/her individual potential.

We will continue our active accreditation in the Georgia Preschool Association and Georgia Accrediting Commission, and we are exploring membership in the National Association for the Education of Young Children. Our staff is required to have instruction in developmentally appropriate educational practices each year in accordance with our accreditation. We have an open-door policy and welcome you to come and visit at any time.
Enclosed you will also find a copy of the calendar for the upcoming year. We look forward to seeing parents at our evening meeting on Wednesday, August 31, and to meeting our students on Thursday, September 1. Beginning Monday, September 12, we will offer our Early Bird program each weekday morning starting at 8:15 for $2.00 per day. We will also offer our Lunch Bunch program each day afterschool from 12:05-1:05 at a cost of $5.00 per day. There will be additional information on these and other programs available at Open House.
We've also enclosed a Publix Partners card for W.I.P.P. This year we are hoping to revitalize our school playground area, and we're designating funds generated from our Publix cards for this major project. When you shop at Publix, just ask the cashier to scan your school card and we receive a percentage of whatever you spend. There is no cost to you—and if you have more than one school's partner card, you can scan them both in!
We're looking forward to seeing you soon and sharing this year with you. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

***We do have several families on our waiting list. If your plans change and your child will not be attending W.I.P.P., please let us know as soon as possible so we can reassure those families that their children will have a spot at our school. Thanks!
