Our Program

 

2020 – 2021 School Year

        Our faith based educational programs are offered for children ages two through five.  Monthly tuition is due on the first of the month or the first time your child has class that month.  Checks should be made payable to WUMC Weekday School.  A $50.00 nonrefundable registration fee per family is due at registration.  A supply and activity fee is due at the first class meeting in September ($50/2 day classes, $75/3 day classes, $100/5 day classes).  Group size is limited to no more than 10 children to one teacher.  As required by the state: a health inventory with a doctor’s signature, immunization record, and emergency information card must be on file for each child in attendance.  (Forms are provided by MSDE).

 

Most morning classes meet from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. with the exception of Young 3’s and 3’s.  These classes meet from 9:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.

The Transitional K class meets from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.   Afternoon programs meet from 12:15 p.m. – 3:15 p.m.

 

Lunch Bunch will be offered to our morning 4s and Pre-K classes in 8 week sessions 2 or 3 times a week, depending on participation.  Unfortunately, the timing of the afternoon classes does not allow lunch bunch for those students.

 

Regular conferences are scheduled during January and April. Two day a week classes are only scheduled for January conferences due to limited class time.  We provide age appropriate assessments that focus on cognitive, social, and behavioral development.  These conferences are 15-20 minutes in length and are held during normal class time.  The children do not attend school on these days.

 

Program Descriptions

YOUNG 3’S:  This program is designed to be a mixed-age group for children ages two to three years. Supervised play, art and craft activities, and alternating quiet and active times describe a bit of the routine. Toilet training is not required. This class is limited to 8 students and has a lead teacher as well as an assistant teacher. Young 3s will need to be 3 by March 1, 2021. Class meets two mornings per week for 2.5 hours.

To be eligible for the threes, a child must be 3 years old by September 1, 2020. Students must be potty trained.  This program is designed for children who are experiencing school and/or any structured time away from mom and dad for the first time.  Most of these students should move onto the 3 day 4s class the following year.

Students should be 4 years old by September 1, 2020 (some exceptions will be made for the 4s program which will allow students with birthdays after Sept. 1st to enter early – must turn 4 by September 30, 2020).    The 4s classes meet three days a week for 3 hours and Pre-K meets 5 days a week for 3 hours.  Both programs use the Zaner Bloser handwriting workbook (Kindergarten edition).
