Classes offered at PPP
2014-2015 School Year
All classes take place at 9704 Mallard Creek Road in the Piedmont Unitarian Universalist Church. The Piedmont Progressive Preschool offers the following classes:
2-day class for two-to-three year olds
This class takes place on Thursdays and Fridays. From September to November it will meet from 9:15 am to 11:45 pm. From December to February it will meet from 9:15 am to 12:00 pm. From March to May it will meet from 9:15 am to 12:15 pm. Parents will assist in this class on a rotating ten-week schedule (once every 10 weeks, assuming there are 10 children enrolled, a parent will stay in the class and provide a snack). After a $85 non-refundable registration fee, the tuition is $195 per month.
3-day class for three-to-four year olds
This class is from 9:15 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Mondays through Wednesdays. Children bring their lunches and eat at school. Drop-off / pick-up service is provided at the curb after the ease-in period is over. After a $85 non-refundable registration fee, there will be a monthly tuition fee of $245.
4-day class for four-to-five year olds
This class is from 9:15 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays. Children bring their own lunches and eat at school. Drop-off/pickup service is provided at the curb after the ease-in period is over. After a $85 non-refundable registration fee, there will be a monthly tuition fee of $295.
In addition to the registration fee, tuition deposits are required for all children. An amount equal to one month's tuition will be held on deposit to be used as May's tuition. If the child is withdrawn from school before the end of the year, this deposit will be forfeited. This deposit is payable upon enrollment. Parents sending more than one child to either class will receive a 10% discount on one child's tuition.
Before a child beings the school year, there will be a meet your teacher day at school. This helps greatly with separation once school begins.
School begins gradually at the start of the year. The first day, the class is split into two groups who come at separate times for only an hour. The second day, the class is together for only an hour. Then the class time is extended by thirty minutes per day. This is a proven way to gently allow the children to gradually get used to school.
