What is the Grove Children's Preschool schedule?
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our final schedule for the 2021-22 school year has not been set. During a typical school year, preschool sessions take place 5 days per week (Monday through Friday) at the following times:
AM Session: 8:50-11:30 a.m. PM Session: 12:30-3:10 p.m.
While we hope we can continue the above preschool schedule for 2021-22, it will depend on current COVID-19 safety guidance. For example, during the current 20-21 school year, preschool meets Monday through Friday during three sessions (morning, mid-day, afternoon) to ensure all COVID-19 safety protocols. When we can confidently finalize the 2021-22 preschool schedule, we will promptly inform all families.
What is the cost of the tuition program?
The cost is $379 per month for 10 installments for a total of $3790. During the registration process, families are required to provide the first-month installment of $379 to solidify their spot in our program for the 21/22 school year.
What is a “blended classroom”?
A blended classroom is comprised of 3 groups of students. Each classroom includes students that receive special education services, students that have qualified through our screening process for our Preschool For All program, and students from the community that pay tuition to attend our program. Additionally, all classes are a combination of 3 and 4-year-old students. We believe that this unique blend of ages and developmental abilities make our classrooms and learning so vibrant for all students.
How many children are in one class and how many teachers per class?
Our Blended classrooms typically range around 18 students per session. As a result, students are supported by one certified teacher in early childhood education and two instructional assistants per classroom.
My child turns 3 after September 1st, can I still enroll him/her?
To be eligible to participate in Grove Children’s Preschool as a community student, a child must turn 3 prior to September 1st.
My older child had a teacher we loved. Can I request a teacher?
We love all our teachers so we understand that you do too. All of our teachers are highly trained and we are confident in the education and experience they provide each year to our students, therefore, we do not honor specific teacher requests.
Is transportation provided for all students?
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide transportation for our community students at this time.
I want to set up a carpool. Can I request a specific session & school?
We recognize that location requests are often impacted by logistics and transportation on your end. We will do our best to accommodate requests but are unable to guarantee that requests will be granted as we are accommodating roughly 200 students in our program.
