Friday is an optional play day and the fee is $25 per day for those that may want to attend on an occasional basis. Drop-ins must reserve a spot with their teacher, Ms. Cara Harris , during the week they wish to attend. Drop-in fees – $25

Payment

Monthly tuition fees are due by the 15th of the current month, with the exception of August which is pro-rated and should be paid with the September tuition. At the beginning of each month your child will bring home a payment envelope. This will be your payment envelope for the year. Please return the envelope with your payment to the Director’s office on time to avoid a $15 late fee. There is also a drop-box on the wall outside of the Director’s office for your convenience.

Testimonials

The York’s family says:
DCDC is a small, close-knit preschool with dedicated, loving teachers and an awesome network of parents. I feel very comfortable leaving my kids every day because I know they will be safe, well-cared for and, most of all, loved.

My kids are excited to go to school every morning to see their friends and to read stories, sing songs, do arts and crafts, cook, and play on the playground. They come home talking about all the fun things they did at school that day. DCDC is a special place and I’m so happy my kids are able to go there.

Laura Rinker says:
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Thank you for helping to raise each of our three boys. You have helped them become confident and resourceful, with your love and attention. From the day we first toured your facility, we have always felt welcomed and comfortable, which is all a family – both parents and kids – really want.

I remember going to Tanner’s first Christmas program and seeing all of his classmates dressed in white shirts, while he was wearing the red shirt I had laid out for him before I left for work that morning, I was embarrassed that I had not picked up on the instruction to wear a white shirt. I didn’t realize it until he was lined up with all of the 2 year olds in front of a packed sanctuary of eager parents, grandparents, and video cameras. I even have it recorded on the video, my horror that I dressed him wrong for his first public performance. The teachers simply moved him, with his paper gold star, to the center of the group of children singing “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”. He was for me, as all the other children were for their parents, the star of the show.

So here is (some of) what DCDC has taught me:

  • Try your best and things will work out
  • Parents are not perfect, by your kids don’t expect that of you
  • People are willing to help you out – just ask!
  • Wearing the wrong colored clothes to school could land you the best spot in the holiday program!

To anyone who is interested in sending their kids to DCDC, I always give them Barb’s number and say, “Just go meet Barb and you’ll want to go there”. The same goes for any of the other teachers we have loved in our 6 years here.

Thanks to Ms. Mandie, Ms. Carolyn, Ms. Shraddha, Ms. Lisa, Ms. BethAnn, Ms. Erin, Ms. Ashleigh, Ms. Angie, Ms. Amy, Ms. Linda, Ms. Ann, Ms. Sheral, Ms. Angela, Ms. Cara, and all of the other loving helpers and parents and teachers who have helped our family have such an enjoyable preschool experience.

The Pitts family says:
I hope your year at Disciples is going great! My name is Angela Pitts and I am the home room mom for the infants. Gabriella is my little sweetie in the class! 🙂 She is actually my second child here at Disciples. My first was Ava and she graduated from 4k last year. Ava loved it here so much over the years and so did we. That’s why we have chosen Gabriella to come here as well.

I am very…. Picky when it comes to my children. I am very…. Happy, pleased, impressed, trusting, etc. when it comes to the Disciples family. I have watched Barb, Sheral, and a lot of the teachers with all the students and let me tell you this without a single doubt in my mind “This School Is Amazing!!!!!” The staff always goes out of their way for your children. Barb and Sheral know each child by name and are always super friendly. The teachers are all wonderful as well. I love it!!!
