More About Us
Computer Check In & Out
The primary mechanism for ensuring the security of the school is strict adherence to established procedures for your child's arrival and departure, including clocking in and out on the school computer. We ask that you always check your child in and out using the computer at the front desk. State regulations require us to know who is in the building at all times. The authorized adult is required to do the check in and out, not one of your children.
Please do not give others (like grandparents, babysitters, etc.) your password. Rather, have them identify themselves at the front desk before picking up your child. If another person will regularly pick up your child, we will be happy to assign them their own password to use.
You may use this computer to check your tuition account balance, and from time to time, you will receive other important messages here as well. For this reason, we ask that you read the main screen, as well as any messages that are posted for you. Entering your personal pin number is acknowledgement that you have read the posted message(s).
Should our computer not be in service- you will sign your child in and out each day. Anyone who needs to pick up and sign out your child will be required to show a photo ID (unless and until staff is familiar with this person) and must be listed on your pick-up list.
Preschool Kiss and Go Lane
Our preschool center provides a "Kiss and Go" area to protect you and your child from inclement weather. This is a no idle zone, which means your car should be turned off, even if you have another driver remaining in the vehicle. This is for the physical safety of our children and the reduction of exhaust fumes entering the building and applies anywhere in front of the center. If you will be spending extra time with your child or teacher, please park in one of the parking spaces allowing other parents to make use of the "Kiss and Go" lanes. Please wait for other parents to move their cars and do not drive in reverse, again for the safety of our children.
Please hold your child's hand firmly while exiting the building. Moving automobiles and running children do not mix.
Arrival & Departure
It is important that your child's day begin on a positive note. Upon arrival, please sign your child in and make sure your preschool child's teacher knows your child has arrived. An authorized adult must accompany a child into and out of the building.
From time to time, your child may experience some separation anxiety. This is normal. Experts suggest you hug and comfort your child, let them know you are leaving and will see them later, then promptly leave the classroom. While leaving a crying child can be a difficult thing, most children stop crying within five minutes, and your lingering in the classroom most often makes matters worse. You are welcome to call or check our preschool Internet Cameras to check on your child.
At pick-up, please sign your child out and check for any notes, messages, or permission slips you may need to sign.
