The Speed Limit in our parking lot is 10 MPH.
Children must be at school by 8:30 unless you have called and arranged to have their spot held. If you do not call ahead, your spot for the day could be forfeited to another child.
AM & Lunch pickup is at 12:30; Preschool closes at 5:00. If you are late picking up your child, a $1 per minute late fee will be AUTOMATICALLY ADDED to your account.
We are happy to meet with you at any time! If you need to speak with Mrs. Wilson, or if you would like a tour/information on the preschool, please call 805-937-2171 to make an appointment.
Safety is of utmost importance to us. Please do not teach your children to open our doors or gates, and please close them behind you. If even one door or gate is left open, a child (maybe yours) could be in our parking lot in under 10 seconds. Also, the big gate that leads from the playground directly to the parking lot is strictly for Emergency Personnel only. This gate is difficult to close properly, and we ask that parents not attempt to use it. Obviously, it is for the safety of the children as they have direct access to our busy parking lot if it is open. Thank you.
Make sure you have a change of clothes in your child's cubbie (returning students, make sure it fits) and their name in their jacket. It makes it much easier to find missing jackets at the end of the day.
When you pick your child up, always check his cubbie for informational notes from the office or notes from the teacher. This is where you will find notes about accidents, schedule changes, discipline, concerns, encouragement, and needs. Also, make sure you sign your child in and out every day, signing your full last name (no initials) and the time. This is a state requirement.
Be sure to take your child's blanket home to be washed at the end of his week of school. We wash the mats and covers.
Please bring an ID with you, or remind the person responsible for picking up your child to bring his ID until we get to know everybody. If the teacher on duty does not recognize the adult, she will not release the child until they are properly identified. This is for your child's safety.
Our preschool is a NO NUT ZONE. We have many children with life-threatening allergies, and if your child comes to school with any food containing nuts, he will not be allowed to eat it.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns for Mrs. Wilson, or your child's teacher, please feel free to call anytime to check on your child. Quick questions are great throughout the day, but if you have a concern that may require extended discussion, please call between 1 and 2 pm, or call the office to make an appointment so that we are sure we can give your our full attention.
