What if I want to withdraw from the program?
If your child starts the month you will be charged for the full month.
You can withdraw your child at any time, forms are available in the lobby. A full 3 week notice is required. A completed withdrawal form must be submitted to the Director to ensure your ACH is deactivated. Any future reservation or registration fees you have paid are non-refundable. We do not hold any spots, should you decide to re-enroll you must have a zero balance and if we have an available spot in the classroom a new registration fee will be required.

Do you have to attend Southwest Christian Church to attend SWPreschool?
No, we welcome anyone into our weekday preschool ministry.
Do you teach children about Jesus?
Yes, we do. We believe that we are on a mission to disciple children in a relationship with Jesus. We will teach children at developmentally appropriate levels through stories of the Bible.
Can I take a tour of SWPreschool?
We invite you to take a tour of our facility. A virtual tour will be coming in midMarch. In-person tours will be scheduled beginning in April. Please note, we are not currently set-up as a Preschool and tours of your child’s classroom will be available in August 2021.
Currently, with Covid-19 in play we may only be able to have virtual tours pending the state and CDC requirements of visitors in our building.
What type of student teacher ratios does SWPreschool have?
We will always follow state required ratios. Additionally, we pride ourselves currently with smaller than normal teacher to student ratios. We are thankful to offer this as a standard to ensure children in our program have a strong sense of one on one community. Smaller ratios also allow teachers to deeply engage with children at any age to increase positive learning experiences.
Do you provide breakfast, lunch, or snacks for students?
Morning snacks and Lunchtime are scheduled, but students are expected to provide their own each day.
Does SWPreschool offer communication daily about children care?
We will communicate in a monthly newsletter as well as some weekly reminders. Some teachers may opt for a daily communication format.
Does SWPreschool track children’s academic and developmental growth?
We have measures commensurate with state guidelines for the 4K classroom as well as other measurement tools that will be utilized for the 2k and 3k classes. These will be ongoing evaluations and parents will receive periodic notifications of their child’s individual progress.
What if me or my child has issues with separation?
We use several strategies that allow children to be able to process through separation with ease. Each strategy we use is unique to the situation, child, and family needs. We will work through each step side by side with you.
What type of discipline does SWPreschool use?
SWPreschool uses no form of physical discipline. We seek to value, love and respect each child. When a child’s action is not desired, we will utilize positive guidance, be redirected, given preferential seating, and setting clear limits for the benefit and safety of all children. If it becomes a chronic issue, a meeting with parents may be needed to work together to develop a plan to meet the needs of the individual child.
Is SWPreschool staff trained in CPR, first aid, etc?
There will always be a minimum of one staff member onsite that is trained in CPR and first aid.
