Our preschool follows the State College School District calendar with the exception of a few days.  We will differ from the school district calendar in 2107-2018 with built-in snow days and a shorter Christmas break (the school district has a long Christmas break that will extend into January due to students moving into the new high school).  We begin our classes after Labor Day each year.  Our classes commence at the end of May or in early June, depending on how many snow days need to be made up.  We have Spring, Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks which generally coincide with the State College School District schedule.

scasd.org- annual calendar source for most of our preschool year.  Parent- Teacher Conference Days will differ, as will some days "on" that the school district has "off" and vice versa.  An annual preschool calendar will be included in your parent packet at the beginning of the school year.  Our school year ends at the end of May or beginning of June.

HOME VISITS will be offered to any students who are new to our school to meet them on their "turf" so that the transition to coming to preschool will be easier!

Our preschool begins AFTER LABOR DAY each year. We hold an  ICE CREAM SOCIAL prior to the start of school for all families enrolled and any prospective families who would like to meet our teachers and see their classrooms as the year begins. 
Our VISITING DAYS, which are run like an open houses for the preschool children and their accompanying adults, will follow that week according to class schedules. 
Our FIRST DAYS OF SCHOOL, where the child comes on their own, will also occur that week or the following week according to class schedules. 

IF YOUR CHILD STARTS MID-YEAR, YOU ARE WELCOME TO SPEND THE FIRST DAY OF CLASS WITH YOUR CHILD SO THAT THEY BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THEIR CLASSROOM IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR PRESENCE.  If your child begins class mid-month, tuition will be prorated to your starting date.
