Tick-Tock, It's 9 o'clock
All children are to be taken to their classrooms. Children will not be received before 8:55am due to teachers preparing for the day. Parents are asked to have children at school on time. When a child is late it is awkward for the child and for the teachers who have already begun teaching activities. NOTE: We begin our school year with staggered entrance. This helps all children adjust to the new Fall schedule.
Curriculum and Teaching Methods
Our WEE School program uses the Weekday Early Education Curriculum Guides as the basis for our teaching curriculum. Our teachers enhance materials with other resources and their previous experiences.
We cover nine basic concept areas: God, Jesus, Bible, church, family, self, others, community, and natural world. This gives us a springboard to help our preschoolers learn more about their world.
We teach through the use of learning centers. Preschoolers choose from art, blocks, homeliving, music, nature, puzzles, and manipulatives where activities have been planned to enhance the topic of study. Teachers use conversations, stories, songs, and prayer thoughts to teach as preschoolers are actively involved in "doing!"
Disguised as play, our STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) curriculum introduces our WEE Schoolers to the world God created. We make big messes, we build structures out of boxes and water bottles, we launch rockets, and explore the “why’s, how's and what if's” of our world.
Extra-curricular activities include music with teachers trained in the music field. Children participate in singing, movement, musical games, and playing instruments.
Tick-Tock, It's 1 o'clock
Our school day is 9:00-1:00. All children are to be taken to their classrooms. Children will not be received before 8:55 due to teachers preparing for the day. Parents are asked to have children at school on time. When a child is late, it can be disruptive entering the classroom, because teaching has already begun. Furthermore, the child may miss out on important activities.
Classes are over at 1:00. All children will be picked up from their classrooms. There is no carpool pickup. We ask that parents not carry on lengthy conversations with the teacher at the door. If you have concerns or questions please feel free to ask teachers to contact you at home.
Any children remaining at 1:10 will be brought to the WEE School office for pick up. A late charge will be assessed for any child picked up after 1:10. The charge is $1 a minute for each minute after 1:10. This late charge will be added to your monthly billing. If you are unable to arrive on time, call ahead and let us know. This may waive the late charge. This method of pickup will help us ensure the safety of your children and help maximize our classroom time.
