  • The determination to close the Center due to weather will be decided by the Director based on a number of factors including the safety of the children and parents. The Center will also take into consideration the local school districts decision to cancel classes as well as the local municipality.
  • If the Center is closed for any reason, notification will be made through email if an address has been provided and notice will be posted on the Preschool's Facebook page.

  • Email will be used to communicate with parents about events and
    the child’s progress.

Guidance and Discipline

All involvement with children will be carried out in a positive, patient manner. Redirection will be utilized to correct behaviors that are not acceptable. There will be no time that aggressive talk or behaviors will be allowed. If a child is not behaving appropriately, these steps will be followed:

  1. The child will be talked to and told what the expected behavior is.
  2. If after being told how to correct the behavior it still continues, then the child will be redirected to a different age-appropriate activity.
  3. Then, if a behavior would continue, the child would be asked to sit apart from the activity for a several minutes to allow time to redirect the behavior and have the situation explained.
  4. If a behavior would still continue, a parent would be called to pick up the child and a meeting would be set up to discuss the situation.

Medications

  • Medications will only be given to children by their own parents.
  • First aid will be given if needed and the parent will be notified of the situation.

Special Days/Parties

Snack will be provided each day for the children; however, on special days like birthdays or parties, parents can provide special snacks or treats for the class to share. Sign up sheets will be posted for each occasion.
