Registration for 2018-2019 School year
Registration for the 2018-2019 school year will begin February 1st. Registration will be taken on a first come, first served basis and will be considered complete when the classes have reached their licensed capacity. If you have friends or family who are interested in the preschool, please invite them to call for a time to visit the preschool for a tour or come to our Open House on January 28th 10-11am.
To begin the registration process for your child, please complete the attached Application for Enrollment form and return it to the preschool office. The registration fee of $100 (per child) and the $100 deposit (per child) for the month of May 2019 tuition will be due at time of enrollment. Payment of these fees is necessary to guarantee your child’s placement for fall.
Your registration fee of $100 and the deposit of $100 for May tuition are non-refundable for ANY reason. Please be sure you understand this policy before enrolling your child. Your tuition deposit will be applied toward May 2019 tuition. Your registration fee will be used to pay to purchase needed supplies for the school and for the processing of enrollment paperwork for each child.
Prior to starting school your child must have all of his/her immunizations up to date and must have evidence of a current physical exam. This is a Colorado State requirement. The preschool does not enroll children who have not been immunized. A required Enrollment packet will be given to you at the beginning of February. Children will NOT be allowed to start school until all the required forms have been fully completed. Plan now to have them completed and returned to the preschool before the deadline of August 1st.
As you compare Holy Apostles Preschool with other preschool programs, you will find that Holy Apostles is licensed by the Colorado Department of Human Services. In meeting state specifications, all staff members have background checks with the Federal and Colorado Bureaus of Investigation and the Colorado Department of Human Service’s Background Investigations Unit. Going above DHS requirements, all Teachers and the Director are highly qualified, Infant and Child CPR certified and Pediatric First Aid trained and meet rigorous educational credentials. Holy Apostles Preschool is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Accreditation is voluntary and achieved by only a small percentage of early childhood programs nationally. It assures you of a high quality program well above licensing requirements.
At Holy Apostles, each class is led by a Teacher who is aided by an Assistant and a parent helper. This gives classes a ratio of one adult to three, four, or five children. The ratio enhances our goal to provide individual attention and develop each child’s self-esteem. This low adult to child ratio is not present in most early childhood programs. It assures you that your child’s individual social, emotional, physical and cognitive needs are being met. Children are also exposed to our faith curriculum in our Catechesis of the Good Shepherd atrium throughout the year.
Family involvement is regularly encouraged through the Co-op commitment that families make to help in the classroom. Each family must provide a parent to assist in the classroom periodically. Social events throughout the year provide family members with the opportunity to come together, share ideas, and have fun. These include Family Picnics, Fall Pot Lucks, Holiday Parties, Christmas Programs, January Open House, and end of the year Graduations. Required parent responsibilities are detailed on the reverse side of this letter.
On the Application for Enrollment form you will find tuition rates and a schedule of classes for fall. Please return this form as soon as possible to have the best choice of your class time. If you have questions concerning the preschool program or the registration process please call (719) 591-1566.
