We’ve realized through the years that until parents and children experience the first year of preschool it’s hard to even comprehend what a special journey preschool is because it is unique in its own way. It is a step out into the world, yet still protected.
A preschool is a place for children as well as parents because no child comes alone. This page is intended to help families get a small glimpse into a year.
School Site Visits
A special one-on-one visit between your child and one of his/her classroom teachers the week before school starts. Transition to preschool and to the new school year with a personally scheduled meeting that is just between your child, parents, and the classroom teacher. What we consider to be the best start!
The week before school starts and after school site visits students and parents are invited to Preschool again for our Welcome Orientation. This is just parents. Child care is not provided because we want to make sure that when our students are on campus, they experience preschool as they would experience it each and every time! Our staff is involved in the orientation too! This is a required event for one parent to attend so please mark your calendars.
First Days of School
Parent Involvement Kicks Off
Our Preschool is about community and getting involved- somehow and someway. The second week of school all committees for the school year kick-off.
October and November
Back to School Night
An adult-only, highly attended night in our classrooms. We dig deep into what to expect in the coming year from a curriculum and program perspective. A time to meet other parents, ask questions, and make something special for your child. A very special PCP night.
Speech Tree Therapy Center will offer a 20-minute screening to all preschool children enrolled in PCP. The screening will take place on October 29th and 30th. Please see the office for more information.
Annual Fundraising Kicks Off Officially
Two Annual Fundraisers (Annual Benefit and PLC Open) support the gap between what PCP receives in our operating budget from tuition and helps us to function at the highest level of quality while keeping tuition at an affordable level. Fundraiser dollars go directly to the children for materials that we otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford on an annual basis as well as much needed capital improvements.
Fall Parent-Teacher Conferences
The fall parent-teacher conferences are a time for checking-in and goal setting. This is a great time to have conversations about how a student is progressing and discuss any concerns about the coming year.
Special Events and Service Projects
In the thick of October and November, we have many special events and service projects such as Fall Festival, Feast Day, Black and Orange Day, Thanksgiving Service Week.
Women’s Christmas Dessert
An all preschool, church, and community event put on by Peñasquitos Christian Preschool with the support of other PLC departments and many volunteers. An aspect of this event is a Preschool fundraiser but moreover, this event seeks to be a wonderful holiday women’s gathering that reaches a multi-generational audience. Many current preschool moms attend as well as alumni.
