Helping Your Child Cope with Mid-Year School Changes

Why would anyone want to enroll their child at Faith Christian Preschool, especially in the middle of the school year when it is cold and dreary? There are several reasons why we might see someone interested in enrolling in our preschool mid-year. Often, it is because parents relocating because of a job change, or perhaps their child is bored and would like to interact with other children their age at preschool.

Parents often call in December or January and they want to know if it is too late to enroll in Faith Christian Preschool. Providing we have availability, it’s never too late to enroll. Parents also express concern about their child being behind the rest of the class if their child starts mid-year. Our wonderful teachers are adept at working with new students, assisting them to jump in with where the class is academically, and also “zeroing in” on what the child needs to do to catch up with their peers. Our top notch staff helps new students feel welcome regardless of when a child starts, albeit in December, January or even at the beginning of the school year. They help the new students adjust and engage the other students to make everyone feel special and included.

We have so many fun things going on at Faith Christian Preschool from monthly chapels, monthly animal visits from Columbian Park Zoo, to our extensive music programs as well as many other exciting activities! We would love to show you around our preschool and would welcome the opportunity to share with you what Faith Christian Preschool has to offer and how it would benefit your child–no matter the time of year!
