March From The Preschool

Spring is just around the corner, St Paul’s Family! As the weather warms and the grass and trees begin to green, the preschool children are more and more excited to make use of our wonderful playground and green space. They’re ready to run off the winter “blahs” and we grown-ups are ready to spend more time outside as well.

February was busy but an opportunity to share a lot of love through our Doughnuts with Dads events and Valentine’s Day parties. The children always enjoy bringing their fathers in to enjoy some Duck Donuts, and the stick horses they decorated for Derby are adorable! March will be equally busy and fun. We are preparing to turn the Preschool into a “Candyland” themed experience for the children and moms to enjoy. “How Sweet It Is to Have a Mom Like You!” will take place on March 14th and 15th, and we can’t wait to have the moms join us for breakfast and some Derby hat-making fun.

Our long-awaited in-person visit from a Kentucky AllSTARS rater will finally happen in March. Our 4-star status may remain the same, but we are optimistic and trying for a 5-star rating. Regardless of the outcome, our entire teaching staff has really taken proud ownership of both this evaluation process and simply ensuring that we continue to maintain and improve our program quality. A quality early childhood program benefits everyone… not just the children, but also those of us who work here and are involved in the St. Paul’s community.

We continue with steady tours and enrollment for the ’24-’25 school year, but still have limited availability left for all age groups if you know anyone interested in preschool placement. While we’re never ready for our current kiddos to move on, we always look forward to getting ready for a fresh crop of students each year!
