During the non-payment suspension, your child’s spot is not guaranteed as the preschool’s wait list will be utilized. 

Checks returned due to non-sufficient funds will be charged a $25 fee.  

Timely pick-ups are expected at the end of the preschool day. The second late pickup will result in a warning. Any following late pickups will result in a fee of $1/minute for every minute late. We appreciate your cooperation as our teachers use after class time to clean up from the day and prepare for the next day’s activities.


Monthly newsletters are mailed from the Director. These newsletters will have important information like important reminders, special events, and upcoming days off school.  Please email preschool@pittsboroumc.org with any questions.

Classroom teachers will also communicate important classroom information using a classroom app, GroupMe. It is very important that you download the app to stay up to date on all classroom activities.
