A Typical Day for Our Preschoolers

7:00 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. We are open for daycare for children who need to come in before preschool classes starts. We encourage parents to make sure their preschooler has received breakfast before 8:30 a.m. 

8:30 a.m. – 8:45 a.m. The children are directed to their respective classrooms.

About Rest Time

During this time, we encourage students to sleep or relax quietly on their mats. We provide the cots and sheets. We request that parents provide a blanket and/or pillow for their child. 

At the end of each week, we send personal napping items home for cleaning. We request that these items be returned to the school the following week. 

All napping materials should be clearly labeled with the child’s name.
