St. Christopher’s Neighborhood Preschool Now Registering

St. Christopher’s Neighborhood Preschool is registering now for classes beginning in September. Register by June 1 and receive a 20% discount on September’s tuition!

The preschool is for children from 3 – 6. There are morning and afternoon sessions and each parent can select whichever sessions they want. The afternoon and morning sessions will be different so children staying for the entire day will have new fun things to do in the afternoon.

There will be small class sizes and a minimum of two trained staff present at all times. Class sessions will include art projects, letters, numbers, sign language, rhythm and music, snacks and play time!

For additional information and registration forms, please visit their website at: or phone their director, Danielle at 970-2999.

Griffin area parents and children are, I think, pretty lucky. There are good schools right here in the neighborhood. The Griffin School District is recognized for the achievements of its students. According to a recent edition of the “GriffinLink” newsletter:

Griffin made the grade for the Federal ‘Adequate Yearly Progress’ (AYP). Griffin School District is the only district in Thurston County to meet the AYP standard and one of only eight districts of the forty-four in our region (Educational Service District 113) to make the grade.

Steamboat Island Cooperative Preschool is an excellent program that’s operated in this area for years.

And, St. Christopher’s Community Preschool is a new program, starting at St. Christopher’ Community Church. The preschool program there has an Open House scheduled for Monday, March 16th. Click here to read the article we’ve written about that event.
