Eligibility requirements

Age

Children must be 3 years old by December 31st for the 3-year-old class and 4 years old by December 31st to register for the 4-year-old class. We do make exceptions dependent on class openings.

 

Toileting

Children must be on their way to being fully toilet trained to attend class. Our teachers cannot be responsible for changing pull-ups, or soiled clothing however we realize that accidents do sometimes happen and are equipped to help when needed.

 

Volunteering

Families or caregivers are required to volunteer by our licensing in order to meet the necessary student to adult ratio. It is also a wonderful opportunity to experience the classroom and get to know your childs friends. Volunteers will assist the teachers during formal class hours only (not before and after care). Siblings are not allowed to accompany their parents when they volunteer. The preschool has to follow these regulations as they are outlined by licensing.

 

Clothing

It is important to remember that the children may get messy / dirty during play-times, so suitable attire is strongly recommended. Proper footwear is also required due to fire regulations and for the safety of the children.
