Rising Stars Preschool Kids

⭐️Attention Parents:⭐️

Beginning March 15, 2021 (Monday) we will open enrollment for our 3 & 4-year old classes for this fall!

This year, due to current state regulations, our class sizes have been reduced to 10 children per class. We are unsure if we will again be limited to 10 per class or if our numbers can return to a full 16 in the fall. We will enroll 10 students in each class and begin a waiting list with hopes of increasing class sizes, pending announcement from the Oregon Department of Education/Early Learning Division.

Here’s how to enroll Monday the 15th of March:

  • You may come by the classroom to pick up a registration packet located outside of our classroom door between the hours of 8:00am to 3:00pm on Monday (Front door is unlocked from 8:00-12:30pm, call us at 541-536-8362 if you arrive and door is locked.)

    Staff can meet with you after class at 11:30am, one family at a time, class is in session 8:30-11:30am if you would like to observe through our window.

  • Download and print a Registration Packet for the 2021-22 school year from our website.

  • Call us to schedule a private classroom visit after class ends at 11:30am.

* Fill out the Registration Packet and return it to us with the $50.00 Annual Registration Fee!
* You may drop it off in the bin just outside of our door, labeled “2021-2022 Registration”, or knock on the door after 11:30am.
* We will enroll on a 1st come 1st served basis!
* All 2020-21 enrolled families have the option to pre-enroll this week, followed by open enrollment to all.

⭐️Important Announcement⭐️

As many of you know, Rising Stars Preschool operates as a non-profit preschool. We are funded solely by tuition, grants, and fundraising opportunities; all of which had been halted by COVID-19. With a shutdown that lasted March 2020 to February 2021 Rising Stars suffered a major financial impact which threatened to close our doors after 17 years serving children and families for good. That’s when the magic and meaning of community came to the rescue! We are humbled by the generosity of our amazing community members, preschool families and businesses who donated funding, to the MCM Fund for gifting our school an immediate donation for operating funds, to the returning and new board/committee members and to our returning/new staff here at Rising Stars! Together we have saved Rising Stars Preschool and are thrilled to open our doors once again beginning Monday, February 22, 2021!

Until the state restrictions have been lifted we will be serving 10 children in each class, in the past we had served 16 per class. Since our tuition income will be much lower we will rely more heavily on fundraising and grants. Please plan to support our fundraisers to assist our school through the school year!

If you would like to donate to Rising Stars Preschool, you may send a tax deductible donation to Rising Stars Preschool, P.O. Box 866, La Pine, OR 97739. You can also donate your cans/bottles to our can drive and/or order pizza through our Little Caesars Pizza Kit Fundraiser running through the month of March!

Thank you for your support,
Rising Stars Preschool

We love the teachers and staff. Glad to have Rising Stars in our community.
