Yes. Registration is open for the current session. Enroll your child now and secure your spot for the fall as well.
The best chances for getting into our program are to register early. Our registration process begins in early February for the fall. We select students by sorting registrations by the date they were mailed, completed on-line, or dropped off. Registrations may not be dropped off before the established registration dates. In addition, when possible it is suggested that you select a first and second choice for classes.
It is the policy of our preschool that students must be 2 years of age by September 1st of the upcoming school year to be placed in our classes.
The registration fee is only deposited when your child is placed in a class. Registration fee checks are attached to the Registration form for students placed on a wait list.
The registration fee is used to reserve a spot for your child in our program and to cover administrative costs should you decide to withdraw your child from our program.
If, due to circumstances beyond his or her control a student is forced to discontinue instruction, Destiny School of the Arts requires a 30-day written notice. Registration fees are non-refundable.
Destiny School of the Arts is a Christian-based learning center. As a ministry of Destiny Church, we are designed to meet the early spiritual, social, physical and intellectual needs of our children. As a Christian school, Destiny School of the Arts will promote the spiritual development of children by praying before snack and incorporating Christian music and art when there is an opportunity for it, i.e. Christmas and Easter.
Our program is a good mix of both. We spend approximately 90 minutes doing group activities and focused listening and then approximately 90 minutes of free play, learning centers or group games/activities to encourage social and emotional growth.
Destiny School of the Arts is open for parents to visit and to observe their children at any time. Teachers are encouraged to invite parents to visit the classroom and to participate in appropriate activities to enrich the school, but there is no requirement for mandatory volunteer time.
Our school programs run early September through late May. Classes begin the day after Labor Day and run through to the Friday before Memorial Day.
Destiny School of the Arts follows, as closely as possible, the Loudoun County Public School calendar pertaining to teacher workdays, vacations and holidays. See the school calendar for specific dates.
Policies & Procedures
Yes, you can pull into our carline circle and a staff member will meet your child at your car and walk him or her inside.
Each child must bring their own snack each day to class. School staff members may not give students any food item not provided by the parent. All children with allergies MUST complete the appropriate food allergy forms.
We offer a special “diaper friendly” class for those students ages 2-3 who still need help with potty training. We strongly suggest that the child be trained to wearing pull-up’s before they enter our program.
How do I handle picking my preschool child up if I have an older child that gets out of school at the same time?
This is a frequent problem each year as the public school often does not set schedules for buses until late August. The most common solution is to find another parent to carpool with or a neighbor that may be willing to get your older child from the bus stop. Depending on an older child’s dismissal time, some parents pick-up their older children first or pick-up their preschool/kindergarten child a few minutes early.
It is the policy of the school that children must be picked up at their dismissal time. Please remember that being late can be upsetting to your child and might prevent our staff from getting home on time for their own children.
If Loudoun County Public Schools are closed, Destiny School of the Arts will be closed. If Loudoun County Public Schools are delayed one hour, the school will open at 9am. A two-hour delay will result in a late opening of 9:45am and ending at 12:00pm. All afternoon classes will meet as scheduled.
Destiny School of the Arts reserves the right to dismiss any student because of frequent absences, disciplinary reasons, delinquent tuition payments and/or parental noncompliance.
Destiny School of the Arts reserves the right to cancel any class due to insufficient enrollment. In the event a class is cancelled, a full refund or credit of both registration fee and tuition paid will be issued within 4 weeks.
