As a parent, will I have an opportunity to volunteer in the classroom?
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will not have parents in the classroom at the beginning of the year. When it is feasible, we will return 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 Mom’s Day in January and Dad’s Day in February in which parents (or grandparents) come in and experience a preschool day with their child.
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.
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 hold fire drills monthly, tornado drills twice a year, and a shelter in place drill once a year.
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.
What kind of communication will I receive from the school?
How many teachers are in the classroom?
We have 3 teachers in the 3’s classrooms for a maximum of 20 students. We have 2 teachers in the 4’s classroom for a maximum of 20 students.
With COVID-19 our classes are now limited to 15 students. We will still have the same number of teachers.
Does my child need to be potty trained?
We require that all students be potty trained.
