- Our Christian Focus
- Our program is a ministry of the Cranberry
Community United Presbyterian Church and has an
intentional Christian focus in it’s activities and
curriculum. The Preschool is a part of the
church’s Early Childhood Ministry and is
supervised by the Session of the Church and a
We wish to instill in the children the understanding
that God is always there to listen and that they can
pray at any time. We understand that these are young
minds, which are just discovering the hand of God in
the world around them, and we hope to enhance their
natural understanding of God. We accomplish this
through simple and practical Bible stories and songs
that focus on God and our relationship with Him
through His Son Jesus Christ. We do not teach
doctrine or theology and feel it is important to
respect the family’s religious tradition.
You are invited to participate in any and all
activities and events of the church as well as
- Arrival and Dismissal
Parents are to bring their child into the school and
help them hang up their coats and book bags.
No child should come in unattended. Children will be
released at the end of class to their parent or
caregiver. We will not release your child to anyone
else without written permission from the parent.
- Morning class begins at 8:45AM. The doors will be
opened at 8:30AM Afternoon classes begin at 12:45PM.
The doors will be open at 12:30PM It is important to
be on time as the doors will be locked at 9:00AM for
morning classes and 1:00pm for afternoon classes.
Book bags should be large enough to accommodate
preschool art projects which can be quite large at
times. 14’ x 16’ in size would be a good start
.They should be easy for the child to open and
close, they should also be empty ( no clothes or
toys from home).
Children should wear play clothes (things they can
get dirty), and tennis shoes must be worn at all
times. Girls can not wear dresses as it makes using
the scooters and obstacle courses impossible as well
If your child is sick please be considerate of
others and keep him home. If your child has a fever
they must be fever free for 24hours before returning
to school. Please keep your child home if they have
the following conditions. Impetigo, Lice, Ringworm,
Strep Throat or Pink Eye, Diarrhea.
Each month you will receive a newsletter letting you
know what the themes and events are for the month. A
calendar with your child's share day will be printed
on the back. Each child is to bring something
on their share day to show the class. Share days are
scheduled in alphabetical order. Birthdays will be
celebrated once a month and that date will be marked
on the calendar.
Trumpet Book Orders
Each month you will be getting two book order forms.
One will be Early and one will be a Primary order
form. You can order from both, just return the forms
by the date stamped on it. Please make your checks
payable to “TRUMPET”.
Tuition is due in full the first day of each month.
Any payment received after the 5th is considered
late and the financial secretary will charge a
$15.00 late fee, unless prior arrangements have been
made. Checks returned by the bank as NSF will be
charged a $25.00 fee. There is a mailbox in the
preschool hallway, or you can mail your tuitions.
Children should not be responsible for delivering
tuition payments, so please do not put tuition
payments in their book bags.
Each year we provide developmental screenings
through Lifesteps. This includes an assessment of
the following: Cognitive, speech, language and motor
skills. The Blind Association also will be doing
vision screenings. Results of the screenings will be
- A two week notice in writing is needed or you will
forfeit your final month’s tuition.
It is against church policy for anyone to solicit or
to distribute pamphlets or fliers of any sort on
church grounds without the consent of the Church
Session and Preschool Board. It is our belief that
children and parents should be able to attend
preschool and related activities without being
solicited to purchase or become involved in
activities not related to the church or preschool.
Special Custody Issues
We respect the legal decisions regarding issues of
child custody. We must have court documentation
regarding the rights of each parent if visitations
are restricted or denied. Having this documentation
will determine the release of a child to a parent.
Please let us know of situation as soon as possible.
We can not refuse release of a child to a parent
Children must be completely toilet trained!! This
means they are able to take care of their own
personal restroom needs with minimal assistance.
They are not to come to school in “pull-ups”or
Each year we try to have at least two fund-raisers
which help us to purchase new equipment, provide
special programming, and toys. All fund-raisers are
parent oriented and we do not intend for the
children to go door to door. Some parents prefer to
make a donation rather then participating in the
