OUR MISSION

Foundation Kids Preschool is an extension of the children's ministry of Foundation Church. 

We strive to serve not only our own church members but the families of our surrounding community. Our mission is to provide a safe, nurturing, Christ-centered environment where children can learn and grow.

2021-22 tuition & FEES

There is a $150/child registration fee that must be paid at the time of registration to guarantee your child's placement. The registration fee is non-refundable and allows us to prepare curriculum supplies and train teachers for the coming school year. There are no separate curriculum fees or cleaning fees expected during the year.


Monthly tuition for children 12 months-23 months (as of September 1) is $200/mo; tuition for children 24 months and above (as of September 1) is $180/mo. There is a 10% sibling discount for each additional child. (For example, if you are enrolling a one year old, a three year old, and a four year old, you would be invoiced at $200 for the first child, with a discounted rate of $162 for the two others, for a monthly total of $524.)


Tuition is invoiced via PayPal on the 23rd of each month, with payment considered late by the 3rd. Tuition has been averaged out over the year and is therefore collected regardless of the number of educational days per month (Christmas break, spring break, etc.). We cannot offer discounts or refunds for days missed due to family illness or bad weather closures.


Some families may have need of an extended school day. We offer an optional Early Bird (7:45-9am) or Late Day (2:30-3:45pm) for an additional $40 per month. For families who require both Early Bird and Late Day, we offer a combo for $60 per month. Sibling discounts do not apply for Early Bird and Late Day.

OUR CLASSES

Foundation Kids MDO offers classes for children aged 12 months through PreK. Children will be placed into classes based on their age and/or development as of September 1st. Occasionally, classes may be combined or divided according to registration numbers. 


We adhere to MinistrySafe guidelines of two non-related, trained, and background-checked adults per classroom, which supports excellent class size ratios for a productive, safe, and attentive learning environment. All staff are CPR/FirstAid certified.


Our 2021-22 class breakdown will be:


Caterpillars (12m-23m)--capped at 8 children

Sprouts (2yo)--capped at 10 children

Seedlings (2-3yo)--capped at 12 children

Trailblazers (3-4yo)--capped at 14 children

Explorers (4-5yo)--capped at 16 children


Our curriculum is hands-on, standards-based, and research-based to streamline instruction across age groups. Backed by meticulous research, classroom testing, and organization of standards that build upon learned skills each year, instruction is based in activities and games that incorporate Concept of Word and Word Study instruction. All of these techniques are adapted for preschoolers of all ages to provide a solid foundation for reading and math skills in a way that is fun and developmentally appropriate.
