2019-2020 Preschool Information.

Changes are being made in the preschool class schedule. The details can be found in the following letter:

2019-2020 Preschool Year

The Westminster Church is pleased to sponsor a preschool for the children of the community. In the fall of 2019, we will offer a three day a week class for four and five-year-olds and a two-day a week class for three-year-olds.

Westminster preschool is currently in the process of hiring a certified teacher for the Director/Lead Teacher position. Assistant Teacher, Tammy Nelson, has served the preschool for nearly 20 years.

Students at the preschool will learn to read and write their ABC’s, the mathematical skills of counting and number recognition, as well as social skills using manners and sharing. Through classroom activities, they will study seasons and the usefulness of scientific objects such as magnets. Together in community, classes will cover holidays, the Pledge of Allegiance, and the valuable contributions of vocation. Every session also includes a story, a fine motor skill activity, a large motor skill activity, plus lots more.

As a Christian preschool, children will learn to pray before their snack time. They will also learn about the church’s celebrations of Christmas and Easter. They will have the opportunities to hear an occasional bible story as well.

The Four and Five Year Old Class:

The children must be four years old by September 1st. They meet on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The morning class meets from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. and the afternoon class meets from 12:00 to 2:30 p.m.

NOTE: Should the morning class not reach capacity, we may combine the morning and afternoon classes into a morning class only.

The tuition for the three-day a week class is $110.00 per month.

The Three-Year-Old Class:

The children must be three years old by September 1st. They meet on Thursday and Friday. The class meets from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.

The tuition for the two-day a week class is $90.00 per month.

We reserve the right to change class schedules due to low or increased enrollment.

All checks are to Westminster United Presbyterian Church with “Preschool” and your child’s name on the memo line. Tuition is paid by the first of each month.

If your child misses part or all of the month, the fee is still charged, reserving your child’s space. In the event of a late payment, notice will be given after the fifth of the month. A late fee may be applied to any payments received after the tenth of each month.

Any tuition that is paid with insufficient funds must be paid in full within one week of notification plus a $10 fee to reimburse Westminster Church for bank fees.

Enrollment in each class is limited. There is a waiting list for any full classes. A non-refundable $20.00 registration fee is required at the time of registration.

Financial Assistance:

For the 2019-2020 school year, the Preschool now offers a scholarship fund to provide financial assistance by request. To apply for aid, please submit a letter with your application providing information regarding financial need and a requested amount of support.


The Preschool starts the Monday after Labor Day and ends the Friday before Memorial Day. The Preschool follows the Seneca Valley calendar for all holidays, closings, and delays.

All children must be potty-trained before attending school.

All teachers have criminal background checks concurrent with Pennsylvania law and Westminster Personnel Policies.

Please return the attached application and the $20.00 fee to Westminster United Presbyterian Church.

Yecks Field Trip 2018

The weather may have turned to rain, but there were plenty of smiles at our annual trip to Yeck’s Farm. The children enjoyed trike riding, going through the hay tunnel, finding their way out of the corn maze, petting the animals, picking a pumpkin and the hayride.
