School is a wonderful opportunity for your child to build his/her skills and establish new relationships with other children and adults. These relationships thrive when your child is consistently in school. In the event that your child will miss a day or more of school, please contact the kindergarten by 7:30 a.m. so that we can notify the teachers.
Birthdays and Special Occasions
Birthdays are special times in children’s lives. We are pleased when children share this occasion with his/her classmates. Birthday treats may be brought in for your child’s class. Please contact the child’s teacher in advance to plan for this.
Bringing Items from Home
We discourage children from bringing toys from home. Some classes have scheduled “show and tell” sessions during which children are able to bring items from home. Please make sure that everything brought in is LABELLED and that there are no items of value. The staff can not be responsible for any lost items. Also, please make certain that no toy weapons are brought to school.
We do appreciate when parents send in a book or item that is relevant to the topic that the children are focusing on. Please notify the teacher when doing so.
Kindergarten Hours/Pick-Up Policy
The Kindergarten is open Sunday through Thursday from 7:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
All children need to be in class by 7:45 a.m. and leave by 12:30 p.m. We do however have an extended hour up to 1:30 p.m. that will incur an extra charge.
It is extremely important that you arrive on time to pick up your child. Late pick-ups can cause anxiety for the children involved. It also often creates problems for the teachers on duty. In addition, we are not licensed to care for children after 1:30 p.m.
