CURRICULUM AND CALENDAR

Forest Baptist Church uses the Weekday Early Education Curriculum from the Southern Baptist Convention. We follow the school calendar from the Forest Municipal School District.

PHILOSOPHY

Forest Baptist Church Preschool is structured to provide for the development of the “whole” child: physical, intellectual, social, emotional, and spiritual growth are all important. We want to give you the opportunity of placing your child in a learning environment which is fun and non-stressful, but structured enough to provide security and continuity for the child and for the parent, We are not interested in “baby-sitting” your child; we are interested in helping your child discover, learn, and grow into the special person that only he or she can be.

REQUIREMENTS FOR ENTRANCE

A child MUST be 3 or 4 on or before September 1 to begin the fall session in the 3 or 4 year old classes respectively.

As soon as your child reaches the age recommended by his doctor, the usual immunizations are required (whooping cough, diphtheria, tetanus, polio, mumps, and measles).  Records of these immunizations and the date given are required for each child and should be provided during the first week of the school year in August.

FEES

The registration fee is non-refundable except under the following circumstances: one-half of the registration fee will be refunded if a student moves out of the Forest area before the first day of preschool.  If your child withdraws for any reason, you must reapply for admission and will be required to pay an additional registration fee. Your child will be accepted only if space is available in appropriate group.

Tuition is to be paid on the first school day of each month.  Discounts are not given for missed days or holidays.  Tuition must be paid by the 10th of each month or a late charge of $10.00 will be added unless arrangements have been made.

If two or more children in one family come to preschool at the same time, the fee is regular price for the first child and $10.00 less for each additional child.

HOURS

You may bring your child between 7:45-8:00 a.m. Our staff will not accept children before 7:45 a.m. Please pick your child up at the appropriate time.

FEEDING

Please feed your child before bringing them in the morning.  A light snack will be served at mid-morning.  Food should not be brought unless it is for everyone in the class and prior arrangements have been made with the teacher.

SICKNESS

You are urged to keep your child at home if they have any of the following symptoms: nausea and vomiting, chills, fever, inflamed or discharging eyes, skin eruptions of skin infections (until treated by a physician), dizziness, sore throat, severe headache, persistent cough and diarrhea.  If they become ill while at preschool, you will be notified to come for them.  Please do not bring them back until they have been clear of fever for 24 hours without taking medications to keep the fever down.  Should your child have a contagious disease, please let the preschool teacher know immediately so other parents can be notified.

OUTSIDE PLAY

We will spend time outdoors playing games or on the church playground equipment each day when possible.  We will not go outdoors if the weather is too cold or it is raining.  If there is any reason why your child should not go outdoors on any particular day, please send a note to the teacher on that day. Please send adequate clothing for cooler days.
