Registration 

Learning Centers: The classroom is divided into several learning centers including: sensory, writing, quiet/literacy, art, science, table toys, blocks, and housekeeping. During learning centers, children choose where they would like to explore and may move about from center to center at their own will. The children learn to respect their space, interact with each other, share, and work together. It is a time of discovery, exploration, and meaningful play.

Snack: We will provide snack twice a day for students. We ask that each family send in $20 once in the Fall and once in the Spring to cover the cost.

Rest Time: Each day, the children will take a rest on their cot. This gives the children a chance to slow down their bodies and fuel up for more learning in the afternoon. Each child is expected to lay or sit on their cot quietly during this time. Your child will need to bring a pillow and blanket to school on the first day. Also, your child is allowed to bring one stuffed animal or special lovie to rest with.

Birthdays/half-birthdays: If you would like your child to celebrate his/her birthday at school, please send birthday treats to school with your child on their day.

Classroom Parties: We will have three classroom parties: Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day.

Extra Clothing: Accidents can happen at school. The children also have the opportunity to paint daily, so please consider this when dressing your child. We ask that you keep an extra set (or two) of clothing in a Ziploc bag in your child’s back-pack (even if your child is potty trained). Please label the Ziploc with the child’s name, and change the clothing seasonally.

Parent/Teacher Conferences: Parent/Teacher conferences are scheduled during the year. However, if you have a concern, please feel free to contact the teacher at any time.

Absences: Please call 367-2528 to report any absences.

Email: The best way to contact is through the school. The Email address of the teacher will be given at the time of registration. Most importantly, we will have so much fun this year! We look forward to learning and growing right along with your child.If you have any questions throughout the school year, please be sure to ask and communicate with us. We look forward to meeting you all very soon!
