The Mission of First Congregational United Church of Christ is to WORSHIP God, WELCOME all who seek God, and EXPRESS our faith in actions.
Playmates Preschool has been serving the Decatur area for over 45 years. Our motto, “where love and learning take flight…” incorporates the goals of our program to foster academic, emotional, and spiritual growth in children. Our desire is for each child to leave our program not only with the necessary academic skills to be successful in Kindergarten, but to also have a love for themselves, others, and God.
Our school year runs from September through May. We use September 1 as our cutoff for birthdays. Your child must be either 3 or 4 by that date for enrollment in our classes. Children who turn three after September 1, but before December 31 may be enrolled in January, if there are any remaining openings.
We begin registration for the following year in March. There is a $50 non-refundable registration fee. First Church members have pre-enrollment priority until Feb. 28 of each year. Registration during the year occurs as openings become available.
Three year olds attend Tuesday-Thursday from 9:00-11:30 a.m. Tuition is $100/month.
Four year olds attend Monday-Thursday from 9:00-11:30 a.m. Tuition is $130/month.
Allie Russell and Alfreda Tribout are our 3s teachers. Nanette Krueger teaches the 4s. Dana Wildman is our aide. Mrs. Tribout also serves as the director.
Please call the church office (217)877-2216 to leave a message for the director if you are interested in registering your child.
