As a parent, will I have an opportunity to volunteer in the classroom?
Yes! After dealing with COVID-19 restrictions in the last few years, we are happy to be returning to our schedule of parents regularly helping in the classroom. In the 3’s classroom, we normally have parent volunteers in every day from mid-September until the end of December. In the 4’s, we have parent helpers come in to help with the weekly number page as well as special events and cooking projects. In addition, we have Very Important Person Days in January and February in which parents (or grandparents) come in and experience a preschool day with their child. We will have parent volunteers in the 2’s classrooms later in the year.
How does drop-off and pick-up work?
Parents form a line of cars in the parking lot, and the director walks the students from the car to the building entranceway, where they join their classmates. At the end of class, the director walks the students out to the car and helps them get inside. You may also walk your child up to the door.
Do you serve snacks?
What if my child has food allergies?
What safety measures are in place?
The three preschool classrooms are all joined together on the inside. Outside doors are kept locked during the school day. The hallway door is also locked to prevent unauthorized people from entering. We have access to 16 security cameras which are located in all the hallways in the building.
We hold fire drills monthly and tornado drills twice a year, and we hold shelter in place drills annually.
Teachers are trained and certified in first aid and CPR.
We have an entire list of new protocols in the time of COVID-19 and we will be happy to provide these to you upon request. All teachers are fully vaccinated.
What kind of communication will I receive from the school?
How many teachers are in the classroom?
We have 3 teachers in the morning 3’s classrooms for a maximum of 20 students, and 2 teachers in the afternoon 3’s class, which tends to be smaller. We have 2 teachers in the 4’s classroom for a maximum of 20 students. We will have 2 teachers with a maximum of 16 students in the 2’s class.
Does my child need to be potty trained?
We require that all 3’s and 4’s students be potty trained. 2’s students may come to school in pull ups.
