We have programs all the way from infants through gradeschoolers. Our Infants Program starts out nurturing young and active minds. In our Toddlers Program, kids begin working on their socialization skills. Our Twos Program continues with the socialization theme while kids start out on other skills for school readiness. The main focus of our Preschool/PreK program is giving kids a running start as they enter elementary ages. We also offer an After-School Program for school-age students, allowing continued learning and some decompressing fun as well.
Nobody wants their child to bring home illnesses unnecessarily. Please do not send a sick child to school. A child will not be permitted to attend preschool when he or she have vomited, had diarrhea or had a fever during the previous 24 hours. If a child arrives with symptoms of illness, he or she will not be permitted to stay. Children will be excluded from contact with the other children and stay with the staff at the front desk until parents can be notified. Please notify us if your child becomes ill and will not be attending. We ask that parents notify us when their child contracts a communicable disease. The preschool will notify all other parents about any communicable disease outbreaks (individual children are not names, just the classroom to indicate highest exposure).
Yes, you may provide a treat for birthdays, learning or seasonal themes or holiday celebrations. If you wish to bring a special treat, please make prior arrangement with the teachers. They will indicate the number of children in the class and any food allergies that must be considered.
Children should be dressed in comfortable, practical play clothes and dressed for the weather. We encourage active outdoor play. Please plan ahead for your child to be out in all sorts of weather (We stay indoors with wet or severely cold conditions). If children are sent in insufficiently warm clothing, we'll keep your child indoors and send a note home asking clothing adequate for outdoor play be provided in the future.
If a child is having difficulty controlling his or her behavior, we will try to redirect the inappropriate energy to positive alternatives. Your child's teacher will talk to him or her privately to explain expectations. A child may be directed to an individual activity (i.e. reading, puzzles) if inappropriate behavior persists. If there continues to be a problem, parents are informed. When a child displays unusual behavior such as prolonged crying, tantrums, kicking, or biting, parents are notified immediately. In the case of severe behavioral and/or safety issues, a child may be dismissed from the program. This decision would be made after consultation between the parents, the teachers and the director. The School Director makes the final decision. Children are not punished using time outs, being left alone, or by withholding of food. Children will never be yelled at or have physical punishment or rough handling or be restrained or enclosed in a confined space. Our staff understands that toileting accidents are normal in this age group and we will never single out or punish a child for an accident.
