Molly Thomas in studio about Golden Rule Preschool, July 19, 2018
Molly Thomas, new owner of Golden Rule Preschool, was in studio Thursday morning to talk to WPKY about the upcoming school year at Golden Rule.
Molly first told listeners that Golden Rule still has openings available for students for half a day, both morning and afternoon sessions, full day sessions, as well as after-school daycare and tutoring. Half day sessions are $200 a month, full day sessions from 8AM to 3PM are $400 a month, full day sessions plus after-school daycare from 8AM to 5PM are $475 a month, just after-school daycare is $5 a day while after-school tutoring is $10 an hour. Golden Rule offers classes for 3, 4, and 5 year olds (all students must be potty trained) and follows the ABEKA curriculum, a Christian based curriculum that is popular for homeschooling. Each age group has a class devoted completely to them and based around their needs and includes subjects like math, language arts, phonics, reading, writing, social studies, science, art, and music. The curriculum also includes daily Bible stories and Bible verse memorization.
Molly, who bought the preschool from original owners Randy and Missy Nelson on July 1st, also stated that they will be adding enrichment activities for their afternoon programs that will include people from the community coming in as guest speakers. Currently she has several storytellers and musicians lined up but would like more members of the community to come and share their talents for an afternoon with the students.
Molly is a certified elementary educator who has been teaching for the past 25 years and will also have another certified educator on staff during the day and will possibly have another educator on staff for after-school tutoring.
There will be a Meet & Greet for parents on August 16th from 9AM to noon and 1 to 4PM to come and tour the preschool, meet the staff, and finish up the enrollment process with classes to begin on Monday, August 20th. The enrollment fee is $100 and will cover the child’s books and supplies throughout the year and children must have a current immunization form with up-to-date immunizations. Interested parents can get enrollment forms by calling the school at 270-365-2588, calling Molly at 270-847-6937, or by messaging her on social media on the Golden Rule Preschool Facebook page.
