FAQ’s

Registration

Are you enrolling new students now?

Yes.  Registration is open for the current session.  Enroll your child now and secure your spot for the fall as well.

What are the chances of my child getting into your program?

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.

My child just missed the cut-off date; do you ever make exceptions?

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.

If my child is placed on the wait list, is my registration fee deposited?

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.

Why is the registration fee non-refundable?

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.

What if my child needs to withdraw from school?

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.


Our Program

Is your program Christian-based?

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.

Is your program academic-based or play-based?

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.

Does your program require parents to volunteer in the classroom (Co-op)?

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.

When does your program begin and end?

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.

Do you follow the Loudoun County Public School calendar?

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

Do you offer a “Kiss and Ride” drop off and pick up line?

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.

My child has food allergies. How do you handle snack?

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.

Does my child need to be potty trained?

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.

Is it all right to pick-up my child a few minutes late?

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.

What is your policy regarding inclement weather?

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.

Why was my child dismissed from classes?

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.

Why was my child’s class cancelled?

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.
