2018/2019 School Year

Gruene Tree Learning Center was created with the needs of young children in mind. We lead by example, treat each child as unique, show love and acceptance to each one, and strive to share the love of Jesus with those in our midst. We take pride in the commitment we have to caring for children, and one another in a Christian environment.

• We offer low students-teacher ratios.







• Children will be placed in classrooms based on age and what will best meet their educational needs.







• We offer chapel and exercise weekly.







• Our playground has climbing structures for the development of gross motor skills.







• We have a gym for inside play when the weather does not permit the children to be outside.







• Community Helpers visit the school from time to time.







• We serve nutritious snacks.







• We offer help with toilet training.







• Our waiting list is only open January – September. (Exact dates to be determined by
administration and we may open or close the waiting list at different times at our
discretion) When the waiting list is open, you may call to be placed on the waiting list
for ANY upcoming school year.






• If you are placed on the waiting list, the information DOES NOT transfer to the next
school year. It is your responsibility to request to be paced on the waiting list for the
following school year. EXAMPLE: your child was placed on the waiting list on
08/01/2017 for the 2017/18 school year and a spot does not open, it is your responsibility
to call and be placed on the 2018/19 waiting list if you are still interested in your child
attending our preschool the following year.






• Current registered families of GTLC will have first opportunity to register for the
following school year. This includes any siblings eligible to enroll for the following
school year as well. If your child graduates from GTLC and there is any gap before a
sibling is eligible to enroll, you are no longer considered a “current family” and will be
responsible for placing the sibling on the waiting list for the school year you wish for
them to attend.






• If you have a child on the waiting list and choose to add a sibling at a later date, the
sibling will be put on the waiting list dated the date you call, not the date the first child
was placed on the list.






• Once you accept and register for a spot at GTLC, whether it was your preferred days or
not, the spot you register for will remain for the duration of the school year. EXAMPLE:
You want your child to attend Tuesday/Thursday, but all we have available is
Monday/Wednesday. Your options will be to stay on the waiting list for a
Tuesday/Thursday spot or to accept and register for the Monday/Wednesday spot.
**This may be discussed with the director on a case to case basis if you have had an
altering family event.






• Registration for current families happens early February each year. We then move to
waiting list registration. Those families are all called in the order the information was
received.







Gruene Tree Learning Center accepts children who can benefit from this program regardless of race, sex, color, creed or religion.
