Dear Peabody families,
We want to remind everyone that Kindergarten Registration for 2015-2016 begins on Monday, February 2nd (7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.) and continues on Tuesday, February 3rd (8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.) here at Peabody. Pre School Registration is Tuesday, February 3rd (7:00am – 4:00pm). If your child, a friend or neighbor’s child is 5 years old by October 1, 2015, they are eligible for entry into kindergarten in August of 2015. We have several options for kindergarten here at Peabody:
Traditional AM or PM – no cost
Full Day tuition based kindergarten - $375.00 per month
Child care for AM kindergarten only in our afternoon K+ program - $15.00 per day (2 to 5 days per week)
We also provide child care before school in our Panther Pride Club - $9.00 per day and after school child care at $10.00 per day. We have full day child care for non-student days and during the summer at a cost of $32.00 (include snacks, field trips and any special events).
Please know that if you are not certain about sending your children with summer birthdays or beyond to kindergarten this next year, we would prefer you register now and then make a final decision as late as August 1st. Our staffing dollars for next school year are dependent on our enrollment numbers at registration times.
We are blessed to have caring teachers and paraprofessionals who have high standards for learning both academic as well as social emotional for your child. Please join us on Thursday, January 22nd from 6:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. for our Kindergarten and Preschool Information Night starting in the Peabody Library and moving to casual conversations with the kindergarten staff and our principal in our kindergarten classrooms. We look forward to sharing all the wonderful opportunities for families and children with the Peabody school community.
And as a reminder – all open enrollment forms for the 2015-16 school year are due on January 31st. All open enrollment information and forms can be found here.
