The Commonwealth of Virginia School Entrance Health Form with updated immunizations must be completed and submitted to the school each year. If your child comes down with a contagious disease, please notify the school immediately. A child who is coughing, sneezing, complaining of stomach pain or sore throat, has had nausea, vomited, diarrhea or has had a fever measured orally (in the mouth): 100°F (37.8°C) measured rectally (in the bottom): 100.4°F (38°C): measured in an axillary position (under the arm): 99°F (37.2°C) within the past 24 hrs. should not be in school.
Staff will conduct a daily wellness check on the children upon arrival and continue to observe the children throughout the day to ensure he/she is in good health. If the child has a fever of 100.4 or above they will be sent home. If a child shows signs of illness during the school day, they will be removed from the classroom and sent to the Preschool office until the parent can retrieve them.
If your child requires medication, you must complete the MAT Medication Consent Form. This form must be signed by a doctor. If your child requires more than one medication, a separate form must also be completed and signed for each medication.
Your child’s medication will be securely stored at the school. Please contact the director for a MAT Consent form before the start of school, or download the form from the forms tab on our website. Please allow ample time for your doctor to fill out and sign the MAT Consent form as your child may not come to school without this form.
If your child has an Epi-Pen or Auvi-Q, the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Emergency Care Plan Form must also be completed (no doctor signature required).
The doors to the building are locked. The intercom system by the Preschool Office door or the main office door must be used to enter the building.
If there is a change in how your child will be going home, please send in a note with your child that morning or email/call the Preschool office, 288-6058, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our staff is certified annually by a practicing physician, physician’s assistant, or licensed nurse practitioner to be free from any disability which would prevent them from caring for children under their supervision. All of our staff are CPR and First Aide trained. MAT trained staff members are on site at all times.
- Turtles (1-2 year olds) One staff member to four children
- Rabbits (2-3 year olds) One staff member to seven children
- Preschool (3-6 year olds) One staff member to ten children
Please label everything that will be taken off at school. Clothing should be labeled in a way that your child can recognize. We try to go outside to the playground every day, so please be sure your child is adequately dressed for the weather. Please do not send your child to school in clothes that cannot get dirty.
PMO (1-2 year olds) – We do not expect children in our PMO program to be potty trained. We ask that parents provide disposable diapers in their child’s backpack on a daily basis. If a parent wants to begin potty training their PMO aged child, we are happy to work with the parent but cannot accommodate potty chairs from home.
Preschool (3-5 year olds) – We expect children in our preschool program to be trained. We understand that there may be accidents. It is important that parents send a change of clothes with their child daily.
Lunch Bunch (3-5 year olds) –Children in our after-school Lunch Bunch program MUST be fully trained.
We are a NUT/PEANUT FREE school. The school provides snacks for all one and two year old children. If your child has an allergy, please check with your child’s teacher to make sure your child can eat the provided snacks. All preschool aged children (3-5 years old) bring their own snack to school. Each child should bring in a healthy snack, clearly labeled with their name, preferably in an enclosed, reusable container.
Each preschool class celebrates four holiday parties during the year, Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and Easter. Parents may sign up to help with their child’s party by bringing in a NUT /PEANUT FREE snack, goodie bag, paper products for their child’s class parties. Sign-up sheets are available in the classroom on Visitation Day.
Birthday Parties: During the year, each child’s birthday is celebrated by the class. Parents may send in a birthday treat after getting approval from the classroom teacher. Summer birthdays may be celebrated with a “pretend” birthday during the school year. Birthday party invitations will only be distributed to classmates in school if the entire class is invited.
The school provides in-house field trips for our preschool aged children. We are planning for Nature Club, Cooking Class, STEAM Class, Stretch-n-Grow (Jan./Feb.), and Teddy Bear Clinic (4/5 year olds). We also look forward to our Maymont Farm and Picnic field trip at the end of the year.
In the event that discipline is needed, positive methods of discipline are used such as redirection and active listening. If a child is having a behavior problem at school, the teacher will notify the parents.
