HANOVER COMMUNITY PRESCHOOL                                      HANOVER CO-OPERATIVE PRESCHOOL

Since 1967 when families started the Hanover Co-operative Preschool to provide an educational experience when no kindergarten was available in the public school system, Hanover Presbyterian Church has had a preschool program during the academic year.  Most of its existence included some parent participation as assistants to teachers until reorganization in 2010 to the present model with a director and full staff of paid teachers and assistants when numbers warrant.   Adminstrator phone 812-801-7614.

Currently two levels are offered: Juniors, ages 3-4, who are two years from kindergarten eligibility and potty trained;  Seniors, ages 4-5, who are one year from kindergarten.  Now that Indiana offers all day kindergarten, our program is expanding to Monday through Friday classes and offering either mornings only from 8-11am or extended program from 8am-2pm.  The cost for 2017-2018 will be $160 or $320 per month for these two program options.  Registration fee of $40 is required to hold a space for a preschooler.  The school year follows SWJCS most of the year with an orientation evening August 2, classes beginning August 7, 2017 and ending May 31, 2018.  Families with a second child in the program receive an automatic $20 or $40 deduction in the monthly tuition.  Memorial gifts, donations and fundraising help us provide tuition assistance for those needing it.  We work with OVO to identify families they cannot serve, but still need preschool for their children.  The fund for scholarships honors Margaret Wheater and Sue Totten, two of the first preschool teachers.

Families are still involved with required orientation meeting, two parent-teacher conferences per year  some field trips during the year, help with fundraising,  the Christmas program with dinner, and our promotion/graduation ceremony at the close of the school year.

We have a great playground for preschool ages by the parking lot at the back of the church and three tricycles sized for 3, 4, and 5 year olds with helmets.
