FALL 4'S FRIDAY FUN DAY
1-Day Program for Children
Turning 4 in Summer or Fall
Please note: registration for FALL 4'S is closed.
Will your child turn 4 in summer or early fall? This class is designed for them! FALL 4'S is an introductory class, just 1 morning per week, with the expectation that children will then attend PreK PRO the following year. Summer birthday students often benefit until waiting until they are 6 for kindergarten... especially after experiencing the isolation of the pandemic. Since that challenging time, we are finding many children need more time before kindergarten. An extra year of preK helps them make greater strides in social development, fine motor skills, self care concepts and attention spans. Now they can attend FALL 4's, followed later by PreK PRO!
PLEASE NOTE: WE CANNOT SERVE STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL OR BEHAVIORAL NEEDS. We provide service for children who can function independently within a class setting.
This program follows Elco's school calendar, but we enroll students from many districts as well as homeschoolers. Ten total tuition payments are required, the first of which is due with registration (plus a new-student supply fee). These payments compensate Mrs. Wenger's work-year which runs August through May.
Storytime with Scruffy
Curious about the specifics of our Christian beliefs? Mrs. Wenger attends Mt. Aetna Bible Church; please see the overview of beliefs on this page.

Please note: we cannot serve students with special emotional, physical or behavioral needs. This includes children who ignore parents' directions, refuse to obey them, throw tantrums, speak disrespectfully to adults or harm other children. We are not a public school program and are not required to admit such students. Out of respect for the remaining children, students who enroll and exhibit this type of behavior are typically removed within the first week. Our priority is to maintain a safe space for teachable children!
