Summer is almost over and Ripon Christian Preschool is busy getting ready for all the new and returning faces.

The preschool experienced a substantial growth last year and offered various schedules to better serve people’s needs. They were able to offer longer days with a Stay and Play and All Day option, along with the original three hour morning or afternoon classes offered the previous five years.

 This school year will bring more growth to the preschool program with another classroom, bringing the total to three. They will have five Pre-K classes and three Preschool classes. They will also be able to offer five day per week schedules for a number of students, which will fill a need for many families.

. If every class fills to capacity they will be able to serve 125 children this year, up from the 98 that were enrolled last year. With this growth comes the opportunity for some families who have not yet enrolled their children in a preschool program for this year, to choose RC Preschool. They still have a few openings in the Preschool (3 year old) and Pre-K (4 year old) classes available. School begins on Aug. 13 this year.

The school offers a Theme Based developmental curriculum in which the children are taught through various learning activities while having a great time in a safe, loving atmosphere. The Pre-K students have an accelerated course of academic preparation during the second semester to ensure Kindergarten readiness. They are also taught the Kindergarten level Saxon Math program that is offered at RC Schools. All subjects are taught from a Christian perspective by a highly qualified staff of dedicated teachers and aides.

Ripon Christian is bringing back most of its staff from last year and a few new faces that they believe will be an asset to the school.

Ripon Christian thanks all of the families who have entrusted their children to them the past six years. If you would like your child to join call 209.404.6446 or 209.599.2155 for more information. You can also find more information on the website for Ripon Christian Schools and on Facebook.
