Letter from Board President

February 2021
Dear Families,

Quality early childhood education has been the hallmark of the Presbyterian Community Preschool since it was founded in 1963. First United Presbyterian Church started the Preschool in order to serve families in the church and in the Belleville community. First United Presbyterian Church continues to support the nonprofit preschool by providing the facility and the utilities at no cost to the Preschool or parents. Preschool tuition is based on other actual costs of operating the Preschool, such as the salaries of teachers, supplies, and other miscellaneous costs.

Early registration begins on February 1 and goes through March 8. Attached are the following documents:

  • Registration Information sheet listing days, hours, registration fees, and other details.

  • Registration Form that needs to be filled out and returned with registration fee as soon as possible to secure your child’s place in a classroom.

  • Tuition Policy Statement that notes the first tuition payment will be made in August and the last payment will be made in April. This form must be signed and returned with the Registration Form.

  • Health Examination Form which must be completed by parent and medical staff.

  • The Preschool offers two scholarships to cover 2/3 of the yearly tuition. A letter detailing the scholarships is included as is the Scholarship Application. The application is due no later than May 15, and scholarship recipients will be notified mid-July.  View the Scholarship Letter & Application.

Thank you for registering your child in the Presbyterian Community Preschool. We look forward to a rewarding year.

Linda Hangsleben
Preschool Board President
