Full-Time Preschool options
We have two full-day classrooms. Each classroom is licensed for 20 children. Our school year program follows the school's academic calendar. At the end of the school year, we transition to our Cardinals Summer Program.
Our hours of operation are 7:30 am -3:00 pm or 5:30 pm.
Full-time preschool includes a morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack. As a child care center licensed through the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, we follow state staff to child ratio requirements which is 1:12.
Tuition can vary depending on pick-up time.
Proof of immunizations. Either a shot record or completed Kansas Certificate of Immunization (KCI green form) is necessary. Requirements can be found at http://www.kdheks.gov/immunize/schoolInfo.htm
Exceptions to these requirements can be permitted for documented medical reasons only. As of school-year 2016-17, the Salina Diocese no longer accepts waivers for religious beliefs.
A physical examination performed within the 12 months prior to entering completes the required medical procedures for newly entering students. Parents may also choose to include hearing and vision screenings.
A state issued Birth Certificate
Children in the preschool program must be fully toilet trained. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a tour or (785) 565-5050 for the main office.
