Drop Off and Pick Up
Drop Off-Students (who do not participate in our extended day program) may be dropped off within 5 minutes of the schools starting time. Upon arrival students must accompanied by a parent or guardian until the student has been received by a member of the Little Professors Preschool Team. We ask that students eat breakfast or lunch before arriving to school as our preschool curriculum begins right away.
Pick-Up-We ask that students be picked up within 5 minutes of the structure school dismissal time. Students must remain inside of the preschool until they have been received by their guardian. All Adults must provide identification at pick up.
Parents at Little Professors are strongly encouraged to take a proactive role in ensuring their children attend school, as concepts are built upon each day. Parents should notify the school in advance of any absence. If a child is absent funds are not refunded for any missing days.
It is Little Professors Preschool’s policy to promote a safe and orderly school environment for all students and employees. Little Professors Preschool holds all students, employees, and other adults to the highest standards of behavior on school grounds and during school‐sponsored activities.
Classroom Management System
All students are recognized for their great choices and individual needs. Classroom teachers will develop a classroom management system that fits the needs of their students.
Coming to School sick
Students will be sent home if they are running a fever or showing any contagious side effects.
Due to the high transfer of lice and in order to limit those affected, if a case of lice is confirmed or suspected, Little Professors Preschool reserves the right to discretely check students’ hair for evidence of lice. Students will be sent home if evidence of Lice is found until it has been confirmed that it is no longer a problem.
Parents are welcome to bring treats to celebrate their child’s birthday. Please make arrangements with your child’s teacher if you plan to bring birthday treats.
Holidays, if chosen to be observed, will be celebrated in ways that will enhance the meaning and the understanding of the holiday for the student. Class “parties” will be planned by teachers in conjunction with parent volunteers and will be planned with respect to students who may have personal or religious beliefs that restrict them from participating. Please feel welcome to inform the director if you do not celebrate any specific holiday. We respect and welcome all differences.
