Weekday Ministries is very excited to announce that our entire program is transitioning to 9:00 am until 2:00 pm for the 2018-19 school year. In our 2 ½, 3- and 4-year old classes, we are eliminating the Stay & Play/Nap program. This means that teachers will be able to extend their thematic instruction to all five hours instead of 9:00 until noon only.
There are many benefits to this change:
- In setting monthly tuition rates for the affected classes, we have looked at the total cost parents previously incurred to pay both tuition and Stay & Play, and set the 5-hour tuition rates for 2018-19 lower than the 2017-18 combined tuition and Stay & Play cost.
- Students will stay with their teachers for all 5 hours, rather than combining classes, which promotes consistency in learning, gives more time to build community, and allows for schedule flexibility within the classroom.
- Students will receive more active instruction time. Classes will still have lunch time, but can continue instruction in their own classroom after lunchtime.
