New preschool option avalible at Madras Christian School
Madras Christian School is enrolling for its new preschool, which will begin on Thursday Sept. 19.
Louise McCourtney has been hired as the preschool teacher, bringing experience working with elementary students in both public and private schools in Oregon and Alaska.
The new preschool has several different options, including two days a week, three days a week and five days a week. All classes run from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
The announcement of the new preschool stated, "This summer we learned of an urgent need due to a local preschool closing. We had been wanting to re-open our preschool (and next year our kindergarten), so we prepared as quickly and as carefully as possible to meet the need for our community."
If you would like to enroll your child in preschool five days a week, the rate is $250 per month, for three days a week the rate is $175 per month and for two days a week it's $125 per month. Five-day and two-day students begin on Thursday, Sept. 19, and three-day students begin on Friday, Sept. 20.
The program is also looking to hire a classroom aid. Information of qualified applicants for the job can be sent to Britt Spaulding as well, either by email, or he can be reached by phone at 541-480-5322.
