Parents' Corner

Keeping You Involved
You are here:

Every effort is made to keep the line of communication open between the school personnel and the families we serve.  Each week the teachers distribute a newsletter to inform families about activities in the classroom, as well as topics and concepts that will be covered during the month.

In addition to the Kingdom Kids calendar for the year, teachers may provide their class with a monthly calendar of special days and reminders pertinent to their child’s class.

The bulletin boards outside each classroom give information about the day’s lesson and activities to “Ask about” and give a springboard to conversation about the school day. Teachers may also post requests for items that may be needed for upcoming projects.

The Kingdom Kids main notice board gives parents reminders about school-wide events and upcoming programs. Be sure to check these boards daily for information and items/materials that may be needed. Please read these bulletins/calendars and post them in a prominent place in your home for easy reference. If you carpool with other parents, please pass along the information to them as well.

Resources

Kingdom Kids Christian Preschool is equipped with a security system.  The perimeter doors on both ends of our hallway and in the Christian Ed. Lobby are kept locked from the outside.  Each door on our hallway is equipped with a “sounder alarm.”  Each staff member wears a key “fob” that allows the class to pass through the doors, after traveling outside the classroom area.  If a child should attempt to open a hall door without permission, an alarm will sound, alerting the staff.

In inclement weather, tune in to local TV news stations for cancellation or delay announcements. Delays or closings will be listed as “Kingdom Kids Mt. Lebanon.” We follow the Mt. Lebanon School District, so if Mt. Lebanon SD cancels or has a delay, then Kingdom Kids will, too.

  • In the event of a delay, start time is 10:00 AM and dismissal is still 11:30 AM
  • If a delay occurs on Thursday, Robins dismiss at 2:00 PM.
  • Lunch Bunch will still be held starting at 11:30AM and end at 1:30PM

Tuition assistance, either on a temporary or ongoing basis, is available thanks to donations from the congregation of MLEPC. Any family requesting tuition assistance must complete a confidential application and review process for each year assistance is needed. The financial aid provided will not exceed 50% of the annual tuition amount. To inquire, please speak directly with the Kingdom Kids Director.

Each week our students are allowed to take home a book from our library cart. We strongly encourage families to read together. Kingdom Kids knows that children who are exposed to reading early and do it often become great readers!

Kingdom Kids provides opportunities for Speech, Language and Hearing screenings as well as Vision screenings during the school year.  Regarding specific dates and times will be provided by the classroom teacher.

Parent Involvement

Parents may become more involved with Kingdom Kids by volunteering to help with Library Cart or escort at screenings. In addition, teachers sometimes have a special classroom project and parents are asked to help when another set of hands are needed.  In these instances, our parent volunteers must have security clearances (a criminal background check and a child abuse clearance.)

During the school year we encourage families to share their talents and careers when the children discuss units on community helpers and job choices.

Our primary purpose is to share God’s love and His Word with children and their families in a warm and safe environment and provide a rich and varied preschool experience to prepare children to succeed in Kindergarten.
