Welcome to preschool we are so happy you are here! We are looking forward to a fun year.
Mix and Meet – Thursday Sept.6 is our mix and meet. Parents and children are welcome to come spend some time during our mix and meet (come and go) between 9:30am and 11:00 am. This is your opportunity to meet the teachers and spend some time with your child in class before the regular school year begins. Registration forms missing important information will be posted for parents to complete. Let us know if you need to change your form.
First day of class is Monday Sept.10
Hours of Operation
Preschool – Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 9:00am-11:30am
Tuesday and Thursday 9:00am – 11:30am
Please ensure that your child is picked up on time. The class door will open at 11:30 am. Parents arriving late will be charged a late fee of $1.00 per minute to compensate staff that must remain behind after their shift is over. (Kids Come First operates a lunch program for school age children immediately after preschool lets out.)
Signing in and Out – You are required by licensing to sign your child in and out daily. If you have made alternate arrangements for pick up, please inform a staff.
Parents are not to leave children unaccompanied in the hallway before class begins. The door will be opened at 9am. Please hang your child’s coat on the white coat rack provided. When picking up your child at the end of class, remain in the hallway until the door is opened by the teacher. All children are asked to remain seated on the carpet until you are in the classroom.
Newsletters – Newsletters are an important way to keep you informed of what’s happening in your child’s preschool. Ensure you are aware of all of our events by reading yours.
