Preschool

Faith United Methodist Preschool is a non-profit, self-supporting school for pre-kindergarten children dedicated to the Christian ethic and the philosophy that a child learns best in an atmosphere of the warm acceptance of his natural curiosity about the world.  Our preschool is a place where children can work and play together, develop new friendships, learn new skills, form good habits and learn to be a responsible member of a group.

School Entrance Requirements

Faith United Methodist Preschool is held for children that are 3, 4, and 5 years old.  Our teachers provide curriculum that is engaging with lots of hands on activities and experiences. Enrollment is limited to 12 students for each 3 year old class and 20 students for each 4/5 year old class. When the class is filled, names will be placed, in order of request, on a waiting list. Those on the waiting list will be contacted if vacancies occur.

Enrollment for the following year will open after the January Board Budget meeting. Current Faith Preschool families enrollment will begin in February and enrollment for the public will begin in March. No child will be enrolled or ensured a place in class before the enrollment date. The only exception will be children in the present year’s class whose parents decide to send them for a second year in the same class.

Parents are advised that all registrants are accepted on a trial basis.  If the child does not adjust properly to the classroom situation, an interview with both parents will be arranged.  The retention of the child in our preschool program will depend upon the outcome of this meeting.

Tuition

Tuition for 3 year old students is $125 each month and tuition for 4 year old students is $145 each month. For the 2017-2018 School year, the first month’s tuition is due at the time of registration and is non-refundable.  The next payment is due on October 1, 2017.  All successive payments are due on the first of the month for the remaining months through the school year.  There will be a $5 late fee added to the tuition fee after the 5th of the current month.  IF PAYMENT IS NOT RECEIVED BY THE 10TH OF THE CURRENT MONTH, YOUR CHILD WILL BE REFUSED ADMITTANCE TO THE PRESCHOOL UNTIL PAYMENT IS RECEIVED IN FULL.  If circumstances should arise and you find it difficult to meet the monthly payments, please contact the church office.  Please send all payments to the church office at 700 Fairview Dr., Montoursville, PA 17754, or drop it off during regular business hours, which are Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. So that it will not get lost or misplaced, do not send it in with your child or give it to the teachers.
