    2018-2019 FHS Preschool Registration Information
     
    Registration for the 2018-2019 School year will occur on March 1st from 9:00 to 9:30 a.m., through this website for new families, with the Registration Interest Survey.  If you are a returning family, please contact either Mrs. McCord or Mrs. Armbruster by February 1st, 2018.
     
     
    The preschool students are chosen in the order that the Registration Interest Surveys are submitted.  Those that do not recieve a roster spot will be on the wait-list in the order of submission, and all Surveys submitted after 9:30 a.m. on March 1st will automatically be added to the wait-list.
     
    Preference is given to returning families and LCPS employee dependents.  Registration information and deposits for returning families are required to be received by February 28th, 2018 in order to be guaranteed a spot for 2018-2019.
     
    After being assigned a roster spot in the preschool, we will email you, asking that you fill out the following forms, and submit them along with a deposit:

    General Preschool Information

     

    • There are 20 preschool students in the program.

    • Preschoolers must be potty independent and three (3) years of age by October 1 the year they enter preschool

    • The Preschool follows the LCPS calendar but starts in mid-October and ends in late May.  We are closed for snow days, student holidays, teacher work days, and other special closings.

    • The preschool is a class for high school students called Early Childhood Education.  Each high school student is paired with a preschool student (or two).  The high school students run the preschool under the supervision of their teacher. 

    • This is a learning experience for our high school students.  The preschool is their "learning lab."  We aim for a mutually beneficial relationship---the high school students are learning to care for and teach children while building relationships, and the preschool students are gaining age appropriate instruction.  The high school students are "in training." They are not trained professionals.

    • We follow a theme based curriculum in preschool.  The high school students plan the lessons and activities.  Each lesson/activity stresses at least one of the LCPS Kindergarten Readiness Skills.
