Dear Parents,

Thank you for your interest in St. James’ Preschool. We are pleased to offer this ministry to our church families and the community. And we are excited to begin our forty-fourth year this coming September!

Please complete the attached Student Application Form and return it by mail or in person to our office with a $100.00 NON-REFUNDABLE application fee by the appropriate date below.

On Monday, February 6th, 2017, we will begin placing students into classes. We encourage you to mail in your form prior to this date so that we may consider them as having been received. This process is not based on postmarks or when we receive a Student Application Form. All applications received by February 1st will be considered equally. If there are more requests for a class than space available, a second choice will be honored and a waiting list started.  Please note that all three, four and five year-olds must be potty-trained (no pull-ups, please).

Applications will be processed by the Preschool Office as follows, with priority given in this order:

  • St. James’ Episcopal Church Active Member or St. Gabriel’s Episcopal Church Active Member
  • Returning Students and their Siblings
  • Graduating Student’s Siblings
  • Alumni and Community Members

For purposes of Preschool admissions, “membership” at St. James’ Episcopal Church is defined as those who actively and regularly participate in the worship, mission, ministry, and educational offerings of St. James’ Church, and who support St. James’ through regular contributions on a written financial pledge. This also holds true for members of St. Gabriel’s. The clergy and vestry of St. James’ will resolve any misunderstanding concerning the interpretation of this provision. Their decision will be final and may not be appealed.

Classes will begin in September 2017 and end in May 2018. The annual tuition for each class will be divided into nine monthly payments. One month’s tuition will be due May 1, 2017 in order to hold your child’s place. This “commitment payment” will be non-refundable and applied towards your last month’s tuition. If we do not receive your check by May 8, 2017, we will go to our waiting list. On September 1st and each month thereafter, monthly tuition will be collected on the 1st of each month through April. After September 1st, if you need to withdraw your child, we will require thirty days notice. All other decisions are at the discretion of the Director.

Please see the enclosed information packet and Student Application Form for a schedule of our classes and their respective age requirements. Thank you for your interest in our Preschool.

Sincerely,
Janet Stayrook
Director
