Preschool Class

Preschool Program

NHDS provides a secure, nurturing environment for children. This is often their first experience away from home. We know it is important for them to feel comfortable, so they can explore and enjoy a variety of experiences while learning new concepts. This safe environment is full of opportunities for socialization and cooperative play.

Young children learn best through a play-based approach and we accomplish this utilizing learning centers (art, dramatic play, literacy, blocks, science, math, manipulative, etc.) Teachers design and implement a variety of individual and group activities based on a monthly theme. Children are engaged as they select how they choose to learn each day as teachers facilitate and encourage involvement.

Our lesson plans include age-appropriate Christian principles, always focusing on God’s love (God loves me; God gave me my family; God created our wonderful world, etc.). We also offer a weekly Chapel time for children age two through Pre-K.

New Haven Day School uses a software called Procare to manage several aspects of our facility including billing, family communication, school calendar, staff/student ratios, sign in/sign out, attendance, daily student activities, and milestones, student assessments, lesson plans, and more! You will receive an email upon enrollment with instructions for downloading and utilizing your Procare app.

Financial Information

Monthly tuition is determined by calculating the number of days your child is scheduled to be present, multiplying that by the daily rate and dividing by nine. This results in nine equal payments (August through April). The non-refundable enrollment fee plus one half of the tuition will be invoiced upon completion of the registration form and is required to hold your child(ren)’s spot. Tuition is due the 1st of each month (with the first month’s tuition only drafted at one half the amount as half was paid at enrollment time) and will be automatically drafted on the first of each month (from the credit, debit, or ACH you provide to your account). We request that families consider using the ACH option to help the Day School save money and be able to use funds for other supplies and activities. In the case of a failed payment, both administrators and guardian will receive notification via e-mail. There will be a late fee attached to your account. Missed days are not refundable.
