What families have to say about Salem’s Early Childhood Program…..


“Salem’s program is amazingly flexible and affordable. Best of all, my daughter’s teachers are some of the kindest, most caring people I have ever met. I could not ask for a better place to send my daughter.

I also love that my daughter is learning about the Lord at Salem. She hears the Lord’s Prayer in chapel and now we say it together at bedtime. Through chapel songs and lessons, she is learning about giving Jesus her heart.” Jen P. – Preschool Parent

“I started my son in this program at age two and it has enriched his life in so many ways. I noticed immediately after beginning preschool that his behaviors and routines at home had changed tremendously. Not only is he learning the basics, but doing so in a Christian environment. He comes home every day with a huge smile on his face while singing songs he learned at school that day. Can’t say enough about the wonderful opportunity at Salem!” Nicole M. – Preschool Parent

Entrance Requirements

When a child enters school for the first time, an official birth certificate issued by the Bureau of Vital Statistics must be presented. Baptismal and hospital certificates will not be accepted. Divorced parents must provide a copy of the dissolution decree that states custody rights. When a child transfers from another school a form must be signed by the parents to release records from the previous school attended. An enrollment form providing information for the permanent record, including health records, shall be filled out for each child enrolled. Enrollment is not considered complete until all paperwork and fees are received. Students with incomplete enrollment may not attend classes until enrollment is complete, or acceptable arrangements are made.

All students, Preschool through Grade 8, must meet the state requirements for immunizations appropriate to their age by the first day of school. STATE LAW REQUIRES EVERY CHILD ATTENDING SCHOOL TO BE IMMUNIZED PROPERLY, and a health form must be updated for all enrolling or re-enrolling applicants each year. Students not in compliance with this state law by the first day of school will be excluded from attending.
