Dear Nursery School Families,

Out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to suspend our 2020/2021 school year.  This difficult decision was made with countless prayers, conversations, research, and financial considerations.  In the end, we decided that the health and well-being of our students, staff, and church members must be our highest priority.

We have enjoyed 49 wonderful years in operation at St. John’s Nursery School, and we look forward to opening in the fall of 2021 for our 50th year!  Thank you for your support during this ever-changing, unprecedented time.  We truly value each family and employee that has been a part of our organization throughout the years.

Please keep an eye out on our website and Facebook for updates and announcements concerning the Nursery School.  Registration for the 2021/2022 school year will begin in March 2021.  Also, mark your calendars for March 27th, 2021 for our annual Smith’s Chicken BBQ.

St. John’s Nursery School is providing 3 options in regards to the $50 registration fee paid per student:

  • The registration fee can be donated to the Nursery School to cover costs associated with cleaning and maintaining the building, as well as the purchasing of PPE and disinfecting products.
  • The registration fee can be applied to your child’s 2021/2022 registration.
  • The registration fee can be refunded.

Please contact the Nursery School by October 31st with your choice in regards to your child’s registration fee.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this has caused, but we look forward to coming back strong and energized for the 2021/2022 school year.

We look forward to seeing you again, soon!
