God's Garden Preschool exists to plant the seeds of Christ's love in the lives of the children and families we serve.
We are visited by many Community Helpers during the year.
2020-2021 School Year Enrollment
Open enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year will be Saturday, May 2 at 9:00 am. It is first come first serve, so you may want to come early, depending on how many spots we have available in the class you need. The spots are listed below.
Because of the current conditions, we are having a “drive-thru” enrollment process this year. The line will form on the south side of the church and there will be signs out to assist.
Please print and fill out the two-page enrollment form and the tuition agreement from our website prior to coming. If you can not, we will have enrollment packets you can pick up that morning.
There is a $150 non-refundable enrollment fee due at enrollment. We accept cash, check or money order. No credit cards.
We follow the state of Florida guidelines for students, so the age your child is on September 1, 2020, determines the class they will be enrolled in.
Current health form and shot records are required for all children.
We need a Florida VPK certificate for all incoming VPK students.
Openings and their availability are:
Infants - no openings
Toddlers - 1 Tues/Thurs
Toddlers/ Younger Twos - 5 Full Time and 1 Mon/Wed/Fri
The Voluntary Prekindergarten Program (VPK) was implemented in 2002 in order to give ALL of Florida's four-year-olds access to a quality prekindergarten educational experience.
