New preschool opening in SoWal
The Santa Rosa Beach Community Church on U.S. Highway 98 will soon be teaching tykes in its fellowship hall.
On Aug. 19, the church will begin a three-day a week preschool program for 3-year-old to pre-kindergarten age children.
“The academics will be taught through playing,” said Community Church Education Deacon Jean Rice. “There will be games, songs and stories (to be taught through).”
According to the program brochure, the curriculum will be based around each individual child’s needs and learning level. Each teacher involved with the program has a background in education and holds a masters degree.
Congregation members helped remodel three rooms of the fellowship hall for classroom use.
“This type of ministry is something new for the congregation and something new for the community,” said Pastor Pete Hyde. “We’ve needed a preschool for some time now. We’ve been working on this for a year and a half and we’re really excited.”
The Preschool program will be divided into three classes based on age and will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monthly tuition is $285 and a one-time registration fee is $100.
Program director Robin Vaughn said not only will it be a great educational opportunity for young children, but it also will give parents looking for a preschool in the area a viable option.
“As a mom of a preschooler, it was so hard to get him into a preschool because of the waiting lists,” she said. “This will be great for parents (of the community).”
For more information on the program, contact the SRBCC at (850) 267-1437.

Afterschool program is what SOWAL needs. Like in Okaloosa county the buses take kids to Roane and most parents dont pick up until 6ish. SOWAL needs this for the working parents...
these preschools are great, but with Walton county school times are out by 230 and dont have afterschool programs and no where wlse to take them/and no one to get them there :o)
Obviously there are more logistics than that, but would be great.
One day I guess... Hey we finally got a high school after I was past graduation age

Even 2 is pretty late for preschoolers -- ours (in ATL) gets out at 12:30! Some of the parents (like myself) have sitters that pick them up from preschool on the days we work -- and then watch them in the afternoons. But it's tricky b/c you have to trust the person enough to drive your kids!

Yeah well you live in a big city so Im sure that there are many options for you. There are a few daycare/preschool settings that are open till 6 for working parents but the wait lists are long. There really arnt many options here. Around here it is hard to even find a home daycare that has open spots.

After school care
I am registered with the State and I can provide after school care for four kids kindergarten age and older (10 yrs max) in my home. My son attends Butler (1st grade). I will be offering child care M-F 7:30 am to 5:30 pm. My other son is in preschool and I can take four additional kids age 12 months to pre-K. Depending on the number of kids, I can pick up from Butler, or the the school bus drops off children in front of my home. Give me a call if you are interested. 622-3274
