Clothing: Preschool can be a messy place, please remember to dress children in clothes you don’t mind getting messy. We will try to keep your children as clean as possible, but for children sometimes fun equals mess. It is very important to have all children’s outer clothing labeled so their items make it back to their cubbies. Simply placing initials on the inside tag works great. In the event your child does misplace something you can check our lost & found.
Nap time: We have a nap/rest time every day. We provide each child with a cot and blanket. Children are welcome to bring their own blanket, small pillow or special item from home to sleep with and keep in their cubby.
Birthdays: If you would like to bring in treats for your child’s birthday, we would love to celebrate with them. Just let us know in advance, so we can incorporate their celebration into our day. We encourage healthy birthday treats to go along with our nutritious meal plan.
Holidays: We celebrate holidays throughout the year with class parties and functions. Some of our celebrations include a Thanksgiving feast, Christmas parties, Independence Day celebrations, etc.
Holiday Closures: Please see our holiday schedule for all national and state holidays we will not be operating on.
Graduation: A graduation ceremony is held every June for our pre-k students entering kindergarten. We encourage parents and families to attend and share this special day. During this graduation, all classes will display what they know.
Allergy Form: Upon enrollment, you will be given an allergy form to complete. If your child has an allergy, please let us know. It is important we also know the severity of their allergy. If your child develops an allergy after the enrollment process, please make sure to update your form.We have a licensed registered nurse on duty.
Medication: If the need should arise that your child must take medicine while at our school, we must have your permission to administer medicine. You must fill out a medicine form and give it to the staff including amount to be given and how often. We have a licensed registered nurse on duty.
Illness: In the event that your child becomes ill, we will contact you to pick them up. If you cannot be reached we will then contact your emergency contacts from your emergency information form. Your child will be sent home if he/she has a rash, are vomiting, are visibly sick, or have a fever of 100 degrees or higher. It is very important that you keep your emergency contacts current so that you can be reached. We have a licensed registered nurse on duty in the event that we have an emergency.
Emergency Information: Although we have a licensed registered nurse on duty, in the event of a medical emergency, CPR and/or first aid will be administered if necessary while another member calls 911. We will then contact parents and advise them of the situation.
Signing in and out: In addition to our card entry system, you must sign your child in and out using their full name and the time of which they arrived and departed. This isa health and safety precaution.
Discipline Policy: We believe in positive reinforcement.When children have a conflict, we take the opportunity to discuss and teach them how to properly handle the situation in the future. We also, if necessary, implement time out and redirection.
Biting Policy: We understand biting is a phase that most toddlers will go through. We will work with parents to get through this difficult phase. We will discipline as needed to avoid continual biting.
