We are so glad you’re here! Below are some frequently asked questions:
Our early learning center is open from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, year-round (closed major holidays). See district-wide calendar.
We begin part-day KPrep at age 3. Children must be age 3 by September 1, and all students must be completely potty-trained.
Our lead teachers have their CDA certification, are encouraged to have at least an AA degree, and are required to have 10 hours of continuing education over the state-required minimums. All teachers are required to have 20 hours per year of ongoing education.
We have all-day (childcare) classes for ages 6 weeks old through 5 years old.
The children have an opportunity to participate in outdoor, circle time, snack time, and free choice activities.
In the full-day program, we provide morning and afternoon snacks, and lunch. We are part of the USDA Program.
In the part-day program, the children take turns bringing a healthy snack on their special helper day.
Young learners in our early learning programs are prepared for kindergarten and school success through our age-appropriate focus on personal/social, intellectual, physical, and spiritual development.
Infants and toddlers are supported and encouraged by early learning professionals to discover and achieve developmental milestones in a safe, compassionate environment.
For our KPrep students (ages 3–5), the “Get Set for School” curriculum addresses different learning styles through a multi-sensory approach. The curriculum uses engaging lessons that invite active, hands-on participation in the areas of reading and writing, language and literacy, and numbers and math. Science, art, and music round out the core curriculum.
See our school Emergency & Inclement Weather page.
We ask parents to keep a child home if the child has a fever or is vomiting. If a child has strep throat or pink eye, the child must be on medication for at least 24 hours before returning to school. Other diseases may have longer at-home times. Please refer to the Early Learning Health and Safety section in our District Parent/Student Handbook for more details.
We give progress reports twice a year. Parents are invited to meet with the teachers at this time, but a parent may request a conference with a teacher or the director at any time.
Communication to parents comes through class newsletters, center newsletters, email, teacher communication, signs, phone calls, letters, and social media.
Our staff members are trained each year in CPR and first aid. And they are trained to call 9-1-1 in a true medical or security emergency.
