Yes, WCOF Preschool does provide snacks for the students. WCOF Preschool does not provide lunch for the students. Parents must pack a cold lunch for their child. The teachers do not have access to a microwave to heat up lunches. WCOF Preschool is a peanut free school so everything in the child’s lunch must adhere to this guideline.
WCOF Preschool provides in-house field trips (programs presented at the school) which are scheduled throughout the school year. They include a wide variety of themes. Common programs include the Bethlehem fire department, Bethlehem police horses, storytellers, community helpers, musicians, Irish dancers, and even the tooth fairy!
Graduates of WCOF Preschool move on to a variety of public and private schools in the Bethlehem and surrounding areas. We have received very positive feedback from both parents and kindergarten teachers that WCOF Preschool graduates excel in kindergarten and are at a significant advantage academically, socially and developmentally.
