General Preschool Information

The Purpose of Christ the King Lutheran Preschool is to provide a quality social and educational experience in a safe, warm, and loving Christian Environment. We believe in educating the whole child. We use a variety of enrichment activities, games and materials to create an atmosphere which fosters your child’s intellectual, social, emotional, physical, cognitive and spiritual development.

Philosophy

Our Preschool strives to provide a quality educational experience in a warm, loving, Christian environment. We believe social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and spiritual growth should take place with a balance in each area. Enrichment activities, games, and manipulatives will be provided. Circle time is an important part of each day. Each child will be given the opportunity to grow at his or her own pace. We will provide an opportunity for your child to learn through their play with a balance of self-discovery and teacher-directed activities.

School Hours

The Preschool hours are 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. When Forsyth County Schools have Early Release Days, Preschool hours are 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. We utilize morning and afternoon carpool to bring children in and out of the school. Children need to bring a tote bag completely open at the top. Please do not send backpacks or bags with zippers. We sell Christ the King Preschool canvas totes throughout the year, or you may use something similar.

School Calendar

Christ the King Lutheran Preschool is in Forsyth County; therefore our school days will be similar to the Forsyth County Public School system’s. When there is a Forsyth County School holiday we will be closed. Our school year begins the last week in August and ends in mid-May. In case of bad weather, we will close whenever Forsyth County Schools close. Please watch for emails from the Director or check www.myfoxatlanta.com or www.forsyth.k12.ga.us when severe weather occurs.

Preschool Tours

Tours of the facility will be held by appointment for new students and families. While you are welcome to bring your child with you to visit our school, you may benefit more from the tour if you can come without children. The Director will cover the following topics during the tours: the preschool facility, history and philosophy, the staff, age level curriculum, the special activities offered, policies concerning sickness, and the bathroom training policy. If you plan to attend a tour, make a list of questions that you would like to have answered. This will ensure you don’t forget any important details.

Outside Time

All classes play outside on a daily basis weather permitting.

Lunch

Children are responsible for bringing a “healthy” lunch and snack each day.

Curriculum

Children ages eighteen months through four years are taught a play-based Christian curriculum. Children learn through circle time, play centers, projects and specials offered through the Preschool.

Specials

Your child will experience Music and Movement once a week, learning a wonderful mix of songs. Throughout the year we have special visits from Mother Goose, our local Fire Engine and other special visitors. The children love having guest visitors come into their Preschool and classrooms.

Christian Education

We seek to integrate a spiritual and Christian dimension in all areas of learning. Your child will have Chapel weekly in which they are taught Old and New Testament Bible stories, prayer and Bible songs.

Our Teachers

Many of our teachers have been with the preschool for many years and have or have had children in this program. Teachers are hired based on their work experience and recommendations and have often served as substitute teachers before joining the staff. Teachers are required to have CPR and first aid training and take continuing education classes each year. We conduct background checks on all teachers.

Special Needs

Without prior consent of the Director or the Preschool Board, the preschool cannot accommodate any child having a physical, mental, or emotional condition which requires special supervision, handling, or which requires the dedication of special facilities for the child. If a special need becomes apparent during the school year, the Preschool may need to ask the parents to withdraw their child. Parents are expected to notify the staff of specific allergy or food restrictions. This information should always be included on registration forms and discussed prior to the beginning of school with your child’s teacher.

Bathroom Policy

One and two-year-olds will have their diapers changed as needed. All children enrolled in our threes must be potty trained. All children enrolled in our fours classes must be totally independent in all areas of bathroom use (clothing, wiping, flushing, hand washing, and cleanliness of the bathroom). There are NO exceptions to this policy. There will be no refunds for registration fee or tuition if your child is not potty trained by the first day of school.
