MOST FREQUENT QUESTIONS

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

The following items are required each day your child attends.  Please label all items with the child’s name.

 

All Ages:

 

  • A healthy snack and drink for mid-morning snack time.  The snack should consist of finger food that the child can eat independently.
  • A healthy lunch and drink.  The lunch should consist of finger foods that the child can eat by independently.  The teacher / aide will assist in opening any items. Please refrain from packing any candy, messy items or food that will stain clothing or carpet.
  • Non slick, closed-toe shoes.  No sandals or crocs.
  • Water bottle
  • Change of clothes to include shirt, pants, underwear and socks.
  • Weather appropriate outerwear, including jacket, coat, boots, gloves, and hat. Most classes will go outside even if it is just for a few minutes – see Playground Information in the Parent Handbook
  • Apply sunscreen before bringing your child to school.
  • A crib-size sheet and blanket for rest time.

 

Younger students (3 ½ and younger)

 

  • Toilet training children should bring 2 -3 changes of clothing.  Please dress your child in elastic waist pants.  Please inform your child’s teacher if your child is toilet training and any special procedures you may have.
  • Five (5) disposable diapers and a container of wipes are needed for children in diapers.  Please label each diaper with the child’s name.
  • Please do not bring any toys from home unless it is for a special occasion like ‘show and share’.  We cannot be responsible for lost items. The only exception would be a “snuggly” for nap time.
CAN I DROP IN ?

On occasion, space may be available for your child to drop-in to their classroom on a day they do not normally attend.  If you are interested in this program, please complete the ‘drop-in’ form and give it to an office staff member.  We will then call you when space is available.  The cost is $45.00 per day due the day you drop-in.

 

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I AM GOING ON VACATION?

If your child will be out of school for vacation, please let us know.  Advance notice of such absences will enable us to offer a drop-in spot to another child. Please note that we do not credit families for vacation absences.
