Through-the-Week School

Our Through-the-Week School (TTWS) offers a half-day program designed to meet the needs of each child—cognitively, socially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

Our staff tries to create an environment where learning can happen when the child is ready and at his or her own rate, so much teaching occurs on an individual and small-group basis.

You’ll hear lots of laughter in our hallways! Our goal is to teach children to love learning, and that learning is fun.

Schedule
  • We are a half-day program from 9 AM to noon, with an option for all ages to stay for Lunch Bunch from noon to 1 PM
  • The Readiness (5-year-olds) class is from 9 AM to 1 PM and includes lunch.
  • Our program runs during the school year from September through May.
  • Classes range from infants (3 months) through Readiness (5-year-olds).
Curriculum

We use the Creative Curriculum, which is developmentally appropriate and is based on theory and research as to how children learn. Children are encouraged to take responsibility in their own learning. Teachers develop themes and lessons based on each child’s interest.

About TTWS

The Knollwood Baptist Church Through-the-Week School began in September 1972 as a mission of the church and community. We have 27 staff members, of whom the majority have four-year degrees and several have master’s degrees. We require teachers to participate in continuing education each year.

Prospective preschool parents

Our facilities allow for the development of large- and small-motor activities as we seek to help each child achieve good learning experiences on his or her own level.

  • Infants (can enroll at 3 months)
  • Young toddlers
  • Older toddlers
  • Two-year-olds
  • Three-year-olds
  • Four-year-olds
  • Readiness for 5-year-olds

The 5-year-old Readiness class offers reading, mathematics, and language materials similar to those used in public school, but with the advantage of a shorter day and more personal attention.

We also offer special emphasis activities:

  • Music for ages 2 through 5
  • Yoga for ages 2 through 5
  • Environmental workshop for ages 3 through 5
  • Chapel for ages 4 and 5
Lunch Bunch

Each school day we provide a time for children to have lunch, share, and play together from noon to 1 p.m. The cost is $5, to be paid the day your child stays.

Peanut-free policy

TTWS is a peanut- and tree nut–free school. This includes Brazil nuts, almonds, cashews, pistachios, walnuts, pecans, and hazelnuts.

All snacks we serve are free of peanuts and tree nuts. We also ask that no peanut or tree nut products be brought in to school.

Scholarship

If it is financially prohibitive for your child to attend, you may apply for a scholarship in the preschool office.

Entrance requirements

To be eligible for our preschool, a child must be of the age of the class in which he or she wishes to enroll on or before August 31.
