  • Do you go outside everyday?
    Outdoor play is very much a part of our daily activities. Playing outdoors is vital for a child’s health, growth and development, gross motor skills, we learn about science, weather, social studies, and just have fun! Please dress your child for outdoor play according to each season and temperature. We cannot keep a child inside if you feel they are not healthy to do so. Children who cannot participate if they are not well enough - need to stay home. We are mandated to take children outdoors unless weather conditions are not favorable.
  • What is your discipline policy?
    Discipline is learning self-control and to make proper choices. If a child becomes disruptive, a teacher will redirect the child to another area, or give the child alternate choices. Should a child not be able to control his/her behavior, the child will take “time-out” in his/her cubby or a quiet area in their classroom. (One minute per age of child-never more than five minutes for older children) We owe it to all our children, their families, and our staff to maintain an environment that is safe and displays a positive learning environment. UNCONTROLLABLE BEHAVIOR that cannot be resolved will result in a call to the parent, and the child may be suspended for the day. Severe behavior problems which cannot be resolved or may cause injury to another child – will result in termination. Fees will not be refunded. Our Discipline Approach: Expectations are limited to what is realistic for the developmental level of the child, and they are clarified for children, so they understand what is expected of them. A “yes” environment is created, which enhances and encourages children’s positive behavior. Teachers model appropriate behavior. Teachers encourage children’s efforts to build feelings of self-worth. Children are given alternatives, which enable them to turn destructive situations into constructive ones. Natural and logical consequences are used to motivate and empower children to make responsible decisions about their behavior. Behaviors such as cooperating, helping, negotiating, and problem solving are encouraged. The following methods of disciplinary prohibited: Corporal punishment, including spanking. Shaking, jerking, squeezing, or physically indicating disapproval. Shaming, humiliation, or verbal abuse. Labeling, such as indicating a child is a “bad” girl or boy, or otherwise implying that he or she, rather than the behavior, is the problem. Using bribes, false threats, or false choices. Withholding of food or drink, outdoor time, or unrelated activities (e.g., special events) as punishments. Retaliating or doing to the child what he or she did to someone else. Punishment for soiling, wetting, or not using the toilet.
  • What should I expect the first day?

Tuition payment Check, money order, cash or ACH through Brightwheel Sign up for Brightwheel! Brightwheel will allow us to communicate throughout the day, send photos, send updates about the day, make payments and sign your child in and out of the center. Tips for dropping off on the first day. Your child’s first day of daycare should NOT be a surprise to them. Explain to your child/re what will happen in the days leading up to day one. Better yet, get them excited about it! Talk to your child about all the fun things they’ll get to do at daycare: playing with toys, playing outside, meeting new friends, and singing songs. Describe daycare in an honest way that will be appealing to them so that they’re excited to attend. Don’t linger during drop off. You’ve arrived at the center for the first day of daycare, given their pack of stuff to the center’s staff and completed your goodbye routine. Now it’s time to leave. You’ll probably be tempted to comfort your child if they cry. But please try not to. This will only make it harder for your son/daughter to accept the situation and make the best of the day. Our staff is wonderful about comforting your children when upset and engaging them in fun activities. Keeping the lines of communication open. We believe that through a strong partnership with families we can set a strong academic foundation that will lead to a bright future where the “sky is the limit!” We provide many opportunities to keep lines of communication open.

  • What if my child is not potty trained?
    We do not require two-year old children to be potty trained. We will work with your child in potty training and require children to be in diapers until this is accomplished. Children will be changed every two hours, or as needed. Our teachers wear disposable gloves when changing or assisting with toileting. Teachers will remind children to go to the bathroom, assist and change if needed. Toileting accidents will be treated as that, accidents! There will be no shaming or making a child feel bad. Young children need encouragement not belittling if this process is to be mastered. We will assist your child in changing the soiled clothing, and the clothes will be place in a sealed plastic bag and placed on your child’s cubby to be laundered at home. Please replace these items with clean new clothes the next day. We are not permitted to wash out soiled clothes. MSDE mandate. Please understand we want your child to be completely toilet trained as much as you do – however, pushing a child beyond their cognitive and physical ability, only draws out the process.
