Maple Springs Preschool has been serving the community since 1974. We have grown through the years along with the church. We moved into our new state-of-the-art facilities in 1996. We have excellent facilities, that include spacious classrooms as well as modern, fun playgrounds that meet State safety standards. We have enjoyed excellent recommendations from the surrounding community such as Wake Forest University and the elementary public schools. However, our best recommendations come from our parents to their friends and neighbors. Our enrollment consists of children from families that represent diverse ethnic backgrounds.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do children have to be potty trained to attend the 3-year-old class?
No, but we ask parents to bring the child in pull-ups until fully potty trained. In past experiences, the peer encouragement of the other children will quickly aid your child in becoming potty trained. Teachers offer children wearing pull-ups the opportunity to use the potty, and they will also change pull-ups during the training process.
How do you handle disciplinary actions that arise?
Maple Springs Preschool explains in detail the expected behavior of children. If a child needs further correction, teachers use a time out location and ask the child to think about the inappropriate behavior for a few minutes (i.e., 5 minutes). If a time out has not helped achieve proper behavior, the child is then sent to the Coordinator’s office to sit and further consider the inappropriate behavior. This is a rare occasion, but once there, children are reminded of all the fun they are missing and after a few minutes are generally ready to return to the class activities.
How long have the teachers and other staff been with the Preschool?
Most of the staff have been involved in preschool work for years and specifically employed at Maple Springs Preschool for at least 5 years. Many of the staff members have 10+ years tenure, and Maple Springs Preschool believes such long-term employment is due to the mutual respect among staff and ministry connection with attending children.
When should parents not bring a sick child?
The child must be symptom free of a fever or an upset stomach for at least 24 hours before coming to preschool. This benefits all the children and we are firm about implementing the policy.
Why does Maple Springs Preschool follow the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County (WS/FC) School Calendar?
Many of our staff members are mothers with children in school. When the WS/FC schools are closed, they need to be at home with their own children.
