Enrollment

A Student must be two years old upon enrollment. Please provide the Admissions Office with your child’s birth certificate, social security card and immunization record. The application packet must be completed upon enrollment.

Staff

The Department of Children and Families (DCF) has cleared all faculty and staff members that come in contact with our two-year-olds to work in a childcare facility. In addition, our faculty and staff provide loving and nurturing care in a safe, fun, active and academic environment.

Curriculum

The ABEKA Book Curriculum for two-year-olds is utilized. The ABEKA curriculum is a Christian based academic curriculum that teaches the early fundamental foundations in Bible, Phonics, Numbers, Printing, Science, Health, Safety and Manners in a fun, hands-on environment. In addition, major emphasis is placed on character development through the integration of Biblical principles throughout the daily activities.

Enrichment Classes

Each two-year-old class typically attends one enrichment class daily. The enrichments classes are: Computers, Art, Music, Library and Spanish.

Lunch

A planned lunch menu available for purchase will be posted each month with pre-order recommended. If your student does not like a planned meal, there will be some food substitutions or please pack their lunch for that specific day.

Drop Off / Pick Up and Sign In / Sign Out

The student must be walked to the classroom door each day. Parent or guardian dropping off the student, must sign the student in. The half door will be open. For the safety and wellbeing of all of the children, parents will not be allowed entrance into the classroom. At time of pick-up, parent or guardian must sign-out their child.

No student will be released to anyone who is not listed on the child’s pick-up authorization. We will ask for a picture ID if we do not know the person picking up the student.

Please note: Parents who are late picking up their student will be charged $15.00 for every 15 minutes after 6:00 p.m.

Discipline

We believe that each student is unique and brings something wonderful each day to the program. Our method of discipline is to provide consistent loving guidance and direction, while setting boundaries and expectations. One of the ways we accomplish developmental goals and set standards is by providing planned, organized, consistent, age appropriate lessons, activities, and routines. Through character training and discipline the expected student outcomes will be learning to finish projects, learning to get along with others, helping to keep the room in order, engaging in conversation, listening to stories, and playing peacefully and with concentration. A weekly communication folder will be sent home stating any areas of concern. We believe that partnering together with you, the parents, and your student will reach their highest potential.

Biting and Hitting

If your student bites or hurts a student or teacher by kicking or hitting you will be notified. Under normal conditions this will take care of it for the rest of the school year. However, for those students for whom this has become a “habit”, a conference with the teacher and administration will be scheduled.  Most students outgrow this behavior by the time they are 4 or 5 years old. However, it can take anywhere from six months to two years for it to be overcome. Unfortunately the school can’t be part of the waiting process, so the student may be asked to be withdrawn. We are willing to work with all parents of the students who are not quite “socialized” yet by taking the student back into our program after three or four months have passed if you feel the aggressive social behavior has been overcome.

Health information

We are required by state and county regulations to have in each student file a health statement that includes a record of up to date immunizations. A student will not be allowed to begin school without this record.

Illness
The student who arrives noticeably ill, with a rash or with a fever cannot be admitted to stay in school. In the event that a student becomes ill during the school day, our School Clinic will notify the parent immediately. The student will be taken to the Clinic under the supervision of a staff member until the parent or authorized person arrives to pick up the child.

If your student is taking prescription medication, a written note from the doctor must be submitted to our clinic staff with the medication. Please note that classroom teachers are not allowed to administer medication of any type.

A student will be considered ill if they have any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever/temperature of 100 degrees or higher
  • Student with a runny nose should not be sent to school unless it is clear in color, not yellow
  • Diarrhea or vomiting
  • Conjunctivitis (pink eye)
  • Head and skin infections (ring worm, lice, impetigo, etc.)
  • Throat that is red
  • Contagious illnesses (chicken pox, strep, bronchitis, viral infections, etc.)
  • Obviously ill or injured as evaluated by our school nurse

The student must be kept home for 24 hours regardless of doctor’s note. Your student may return to school when:

  • Temperature remains normal for 24 hours without any other signs of illness
  • Student has been on antibiotics for 24 hours and the doctor signs an admittance statement

Dress

We encourage that you dress your student in play clothes and tennis shoes for school each day. Daily activities include active indoor and outdoor play. Some activities may even be a bit messy. Your student should feel comfortable enough to enjoy the activities without worrying about ruining his/her clothing. Think of your student’s comfort and provide simple clothing that is free of complicated fasteners and belts. Provide clothing that is washable and able to stand up to messy artwork and play activities. It is preferred that no jewelry be worn during school hours. We play outdoors every day except when weather conditions do not permit. Please label all clothing items.

Confidentiality of records

Student records are open only to the student’s teacher, the principal and authorized employees of the licensing agency and the child’s parents or legal guardians.

Birthdays

Birthday celebrations are enjoyed and encouraged. These are special and memorable times for the students. We ask that parents check with their student’s teacher at least one week prior before providing birthday or seasonal treats. All birthday celebrations will be limited to their scheduled lunchtime. Special decorations and characters are strongly discouraged.

Potty Training

We will consistently check for potty training readiness and encourage the potty training regimen with each student. Please understand that students have different developmental stages and these range according to the individual student.  We will work with you during the training process; however, we will not overwhelm a student that is not ready for the potty.  The teacher will keep you posted on all of their potty events each day.
