    Default Performing Arts Preschool Closing :(

    After much debating I finally decided to send my LO here. I emailed tonight to get the registration forms only to find out that they are closing the preschool due to full time JK/SK. I am so disappointed...it took me forever to decide on that school and feel comfortable with that decision...now it's closing!

    I was so disappointed when I heard this. Even though my girls are done there and we weren't going to enroll my son there, I'm sad for all the kids who aren't going to get that experience. They are so caring, so kind, such wonderful teachers. It was such a great program and it was affordable! What a loss

    I saw one of the teachers today, coincidentally. She said they both have some ideas for their futures. I wish them all the best.

    They have alternative ideas. Stay in touch with them! There may be something happening in the Fall.

    Aww, that's a shame. I never enrolled my kids there as it never quite met our preschool needs, but I'd be interested in other activities along those lines.

    Thanks for the heads up! I wonder how I would stay in touch though? Just through Dance Extreme? The teachers at the preschool were so awesome, it looked like such a great place.

    Yes, I was told to check the Dance Extreme website for news over the next few months.

    The one drawback I can see about full day Kindergarten is this happening if you did not have a backup plan in place when the the change took place.

    DS1 and DS2 went to Calvary Nursery School and it was for 2-5 year old to start with for DS1 who did 2 years of preschool. DS2 went for 3 years -- 1 year in the new toddler program and 2 years in the preschool program.

    I was on the Board when full-day Kindergarten was talked about so the Director started offering an 18 month toddler program as well as the 2-4 year old programs and now the Nursery School is now for 18 months -4 years. Back up plans were/are needed to prevent more of this occuring. Glad to hear that kids who were there enjoyed their experiences.

    We loved this preschool and will always have fond memories about the teachers.
