Yes, our school is open throughout the summer months.  We provide a fun summer curriculum including splash days and in-house field trips for our young students.  Additionally, we host a school-age summer program for older children during the months of June, July, and August giving them a place to have fun and enjoy the summer before heading back to their respective schools in the fall.  Check out our school calendar located on our website to review our holidays and special events.

We offer a sibling discount for families with more than one child enrolled.  Tuition for the oldest child(ren) is discounted by 10%.  The sibling discount applies to full time enrollment only.  

Yes, we use The Simply Fresh Kitchen as our catering service. Hot lunches are available for purchase by parents and delivered to our school daily. You can find out more about our catering company through their website.

Soccer Shots comes to our school once a week during their seasons. Parents register and pay through the Soccer Shots website to attend.  

 

Yes, we have cameras in the classrooms and around our school. We monitor them on a frequent basis and record all activity. Parents are unable to access the cameras live due to privacy concerns for other students; however, parents are invited to review footage with our campus administrator when doing so might support their child educationally, developmentally, or behaviorally.  

We maintain ratios at or below state guidelines.  We have large classrooms but avoid filling classes to capacity so that children receive as much individualized instruction as possible.  

We provide quality care and education to children from six weeks old through Pre-Kindergarten currently.  We plan to offer a KinderCAN bridge program in the fall 2021  

Teachers frequently speak both English and Spanish to children in the classroom during the normal day.  Spanish instruction is scheduled for children 18 months and up during the "school year" which runs August through May.  Additionally, sign language is taught in our infant classes to children six months through 17 months.

 

Yes, physical, occupational, and speech therapists are welcome to come to our campus to meet with individual children.  We just need permission from the parents of the student, documentation of background check clearance through the therapist's organization, and credentials/identification visible at all times.  We are glad to support the whole child in any way possible.

 

Our vaccination policy requires that teachers are informed about all vaccines recommended for them because they work with young children.  While many of our teachers are vaccinated against many illnesses, we do not mandate that they receive vaccinations.  That choice is left to them and their health care provider.  As a school, we do follow guidelines about illness, handwashing, and the spread of germs to maintain the healthiest environment possible for our staff as well as our students.
