Drive-by ​Meet the Teacher Day prior to the first day of preschool

Since we are unable to hold our typical "Meet the Teacher Day" inside the preschool, we will hold a Drive-by "Meet the Teacher Day."  This will take place on Wednesday, September 9th between 10:00-11:00.  **Parents will receive a letter in the mail or via email containing the specific time your child's class will be able to drive by!  During this time, your child can see their teach and we will hand the parents some important paperwork as well.

We look forward to having you and your child join us!

Parent Virtual Zoom 

prior to the first day of school

 

Since we are unable to hold a face-to-face parent information night, we will be conducting these info sessions on Zoom on Thursday, September 10th.  **Parents will receive a letter via mail or email with the your specific time on that date. Parents will have the opportunity to speak with your child's teacher and the preschool director, and ask any questions you may have.

Summer Camp

 

Due to COVID-19 concerns, we made the difficult decision not to hold summer camps in 2020.  Our summer camps are very popular and we hope to bring them back in 2021 with some fun offerings for the children! 

 

Summer camp is available for children who have completed the current school year at Avenue Preschool.  Registration begins in the spring annually.  

 

To give you an idea of some of our past themes, the 2019 camp schedule was as follows

  • Week 1 (June 3-7, 2019): Dinosaur Camp                       

  • Week 2 option #1 (June 10-14, 2019): Let's Grow Some Fun

  • Week 2 option #2 (June 10-14, 2019): Under the Sea      

  • Week 2 (July 16-20, 2018): Fun at the Fair                                                                  

Camps take place from 9:00-12:00 Monday through Friday.  They include snacks, materials, fun crafts, outdoor activities and special events. More details can be found on the "Programs" page of the website.      

 

 Open House

 

Avenue Preschool's annual Open House is typically held in the spring each year although families are welcomed to tour our facility at any time during the year. Currently we are unable to hold tours or our Open House based on precautions being taken due to COVID-19 safety measures. 

 

Once we are able to hold an Open House, details will be posted here on our website, on our Facebook page, in the Avenue United Methodist Church Bulletin and their Weekly E-News.

 

At Open House, children and their parents/caregivers join us for an informal hour of visiting classrooms, meeting staff, touring the facility, and experiencing a day in the life of a child here at Avenue Preschool.  No RSVP required--we simply hope to see you there!

 

If you know of someone who might like to attend, please help spread the word and invite them to the Open House.
