Children's School Accepting Applications for Next Year

February 27, 2007

OGDEN, Utah – The Melba S. Lehner Children’s School at Weber State University is now accepting applications for the 2007-08 school year.

Applications will be accepted through March 30 for children who are three or four years old before Sept. 1. Children will be selected by lottery to fill openings available for fall enrollment.

The children’s school offers one morning and one afternoon session. Three-year-olds attend Monday through Wednesday morning, and 4-year-olds attend Monday through Thursday afternoons. Additionally, a toddler lab for children 24-36 months of age will be offered this fall on Thursday and Friday mornings for 90 minutes. 

The school’s well-rounded curriculum is taught through fun learning centers where children participate actively to learn. Once a child is selected for enrollment, parents are required to participate in a parenting program, which allows parents and the school to interact cooperatively in an effort to meet the mutual goals of the children.

The children’s school also offers extended-hours preschool (child care) for 3- and 4-year-old children of WSU students, faculty and staff.  Applications for that program are accepted year-round.

Applications for all children’s school programs are available in Room 107 of the David O. McKay Education Building, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., or online at weber.edu/COE/chfam.html. Parents who need additional information may call the school during those hours at 801-626-6277.
