Preschool FAQ

 

Question: Is your school a licensed child care center?
Answer: Yes, we are licensed with the Department of Social Services under license number is 5670024. Although legally we are a child care center, we like to think of ourselves as a preschool and not just ordinary daycare.

Question: My child is not ready for academics, what is your philosophy on early learning?
Answer: We believe that young children need to learn more than just numbers and letters. Our classes focus primarily on learning through play. As they begin to socialize with others, children learn skills that will help them in school and later in life. Our classes also offer learning opportunities through circle time and centers, where children learn music, literacy readiness skills, math readiness skills and more.

Question: Do you offer nap time?
Answer: At about 1:30 PM, the children that come 8AM-3PM lay on their mats for "Quiet Time". Non-nappers will get up after about 30 minutes. They go into another room for the afternoon snack and then outside to play. Children that fall asleep may remain sleeping until they are picked up at 3:00 PM. If they wake up early, we will get them a snack and take them outside to play with their friends.

Question: What about food? Do I need to send anything?
Answer: For friends that come Half Days (8:30AM-12:00 PM), you don't need to pack a thing. We have two aides every day that prepare all morning and late afternoon snacks. If your child attends LunchBunch, you will need to send a lunch. We prefer that you provide items that are easy for your child to open and easy to eat. Also, we are a peanut free school - so please, no peanut butter.

Question: How can I volunteer?
Answer: We have a number of volunteer opportunities, both at home and at school. Here are some options, but we suggest you speak with your child's teacher for specifics:

Update School Birthday Chart
