Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ has received its state license from the Department of Families and Children (DFC #C20LE0116) to operate a new weekday preschool program.
The preschool has been authorized as a VPK provider. Sanibel Christian Preschool provides children 3 years old and Pre-K with a warm, welcoming and nurturing environment. The program follows the Lee County School System academic year, and will be open 8 a.m.-2:45 p.m. After school care is available on Monday, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays for an additional fee.
As a ministry of the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, the school's practices and direction are based on the assumption that each student is a beloved child of God.
It welcomes and accepts students and parents from any race, color, nationality, religious or ethnic origin. Students will be invited to share their family's heritage and traditions with the other students through such activities as the "Fridays around the world."
The program is developmentally challenging and nurtures the spiritual, emotional, physical, intellectual and artistic needs of each student. Preschool director, Laura Miltner, already is known to many parents and children in our community as a warm, open, energetic, and creative teacher. Elizabeth Kindt, also known to many parents, joins her as the teacher for 3-year-olds.
A few openings remain for students for the school year beginning Aug. 8. Applications are available at the church office located at 2050 Periwinkle Way.
