Toilet Training: Children are not expected to enter the two-year-old class toilet trained. The facilities prevent the teachers from adequately staffing the three, four, and transitional five classes if they need to frequently leave to diaper children. Parents are encouraged to talk with the director if these children are not toilet trained.
Health Forms and Immunization Records: Parents are required to sign a parental medical consent form which lists emergency phone numbers to be used by the school in case parents can not be reached. This form also states the medical procedure which will be followed by the school in case of a medical emergency. A current record of all immunizations and a copy of the child’s last well child exam are required.
Special Needs: Children with special needs will be considered if they do not require extraordinary teacher supervision and/or special facilities.
Transitional Fives: Parents of children applying to the transitional five-year-old class are asked to speak with the Director concerning the appropriateness of this class for their child. Observation of this class and the four-year-old class can be arranged so parents can learn of differences in the twop classes (i.e., schedule, curriculum, expectations).
