Welcome to Orchard Farm Preschool!
We know there are many choices out there for preschool. What makes Orchard Farm’s preschool unique is that our rooms are staffed by a teacher with a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education with an assistant in each class. We are also accredited by the state of Missouri. This prestigious accreditation is equal to National Accreditation. Currently, there are two classes of 3 and 4 year olds at Discovery Elementary. We have a limited number of openings for the Fall of 2013.
District resident students must turn 3 on or before August 1, 2013 and be fully potty trained. They may wear pull ups at nap time only. Children who turn 5 on or before August 1, 2013 are not be eligible for our preschool. We receive Missouri Preschool Project Grant funds and the grant is written for 3 and 4 year olds only. Our full five day a week program follows the school year calendar.
Tuition is $135.00 per week for the hours of 8:15am-3:30pm and includes hot lunch and 2 snacks each day. If before and aftercare are desired from 6:30 am—6pm (or any combination thereof) the tuition is $165.00 per week. A sliding scale fee is available to families who meet the state’s free & reduced lunch income guidelines. We also accept Division Of Family Services Childcare payments as well.
To enroll your 3 or 4 year old child, we enroll on a first come, first serve basis the morning of Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at 9:30 am at Discovery Elementary. There is a $25.00 nonrefundable enrollment fee to keep your child’s spot. This will be credited back on your first tuition payment. Once all spots are filled, remaining families will be added to a waiting list.
