    Welcome to Preschool

    preschool director

    St. Gregory Hovsepian School welcomes you to its Preschool.

    Since its establishment in 1984, our Preschool has generated a community-wide reputation for excellence, providing a warm and nurturing environment for all children.

    Our age-appropriate curriculum engages and challenges students by providing them the opportunity to explore, think, reason and expand the skills that are necessary for early childhood development. By providing both personalized and caring attention, our teachers will address the need of the individual. In no time, your son or daughter will reach for the stars with our stimulating, academic program.

    Our curriculum focuses on Armenian & English languages and culture, creative arts, reading skills, basic math concepts, music and rhythm, dramatic play, natural and social sciences and additional hands-on activities.

    With your support and encouragement, I am sure your children will find their preschool years to be a very rewarding.

    Classroom doors open at 7:50 a.m. Attendance and punctuality is very important to a child's learning. Class promptly begins at 8:30 a.m.


    Every student must be picked-up promptly as soon as his/her class ends. All students are to be picked-up at 2:50 p.m. Any student picked-up late at dismissal time, will be sent to late pickup care at 3:00 p.m. with additional charges.

    Before & After School Care

    Before school care begins at 7:30 a.m. and after school care begins at 3:00 p.m. and ends at 6:00 p.m. Please contact the school office to register your child/children for additional care. If your child will be staying for after school care, please provide a small healthy snack.

    Sign-In & Out Folders

    It is a requirement that all parents sign-in and out on a daily basis. Only parents, guardians, and adults with prior consent are allowed to drop-off or pick-up a child.

    Birthday Parties

    If you would like to celebrate your child's special day at school you may. However, because of the short amount of time there is in the schedule and the importance of making sure that all students meet the state standards, we can only allow birthdays on the last Friday of each month. In addition, a simple birthday cake is preferred.


    The class will be attending 2 or 3 fieldtrips. More information on the date and location will be given at a later date.


    In our classes, we use 3 methods of reporting student’s work. Each wording represents a different level of student effort. Preschoolers are formally graded 3 times a year with a progress report.


    Please write your child’s name with a permanent marker on the inside tag. Every year, jackets are lost because there is no name to identify the owner.

    Meeting with your child’s teacher

    If you need to discuss something with your child’s teacher, you are more than welcome to make an appointment with the teacher or the office. Remember that there is always a class in session during the day, and we need to be respectful of their learning.

    Jackets and sweaters

    Please write your child's name with a permanent marker on the inside tag. Every year, jackets and sweaters are lost because there is no name to identify the owner.


    On occasions, we will be sending newsletters via e-mail informing you of anything new that is going on in preschool. This is the primary source of communicating with the parents.

    Parent Conferences

    There will be 1 parent conference scheduled during the 1st quarter of school.

    Parent-Support- FPP

    Parent-support is crucial in order for your child to succeed in his/her learning.


    As a year-long policy, we do not allow students to bring toys from home. Toys create distractions to students in the classroom. It is only on Fridays that student will be given the opportunity to bring toys to school for "share day." We appreciate your help in enforcing this policy.

    Most importantly...

    Our goal is to promote a high-quality preschool program, which includes a rich array of early experiences that can help prepare children for kindergarten and beyond.
