For our Gift of Time and Kindergarten parents:

Each year in January, we hold a Parent Information Meeting for families that are interested in enrolling their child in either our Gift Of Time or Kindergarten classes for the next school year.

The lead teachers from our Gift Of Time and Kindergarten classes will give a short presentation about all the wonderful things that we offer: small class size, two teachers per classroom, enrichment activities, etc.  Families that are watching the presentation live will be able to ask questions using the “comment” section on the live feed.  If families are unable to watch the meeting during the live feed, they can watch it at any time on the Facebook page.

If you have questions about the Information Meeting or either of the classes, please give us a call at 210-494-5061.
