The Center adheres to developmentally appropriate practice for the social and emotional development of young children. A goal of the Center is to help young children develop social interaction and group behavior skills. This is accomplished in the following ways:
- Children assist with making clear and concise rules and limits
- Adults anticipate and redirect inappropriate behaviors
- Adults remind children of expectations, rules and limits
- Adults help children use words to express anger, resolve conflicts and express needs and desires
- Adults will assist children in conflict resolution process
A conference will be held with parents should serious inappropriate behaviors occur during the preschool day.
We ask that you contact the Center to report an absence.
The Center closes at 5:30 p.m. each school day. Please be advised of the importance of picking students up from the Center promptly at 5:30 p.m. each school day. Parents who arrive late to pick students up from the Center will be charged $10 for the first 15 minutes after 5:30 p.m. and $5 for every 15 minutes thereafter.
