Transferring from classrooms

Our goal is to have children transfer from the infant room, to the toddler room, to the preschool room, and then to the Pre-k room, if space is available. Children that attend will have priority to all rooms if space is available. We try our hardest to make the transition from each room the same desired schedule for families. We will generally hold spots for children if needed for specific transitions into rooms. If it is longer than 2 months, parents could be responsible for us holding the spot.

Preschool and Toddler Room

All children must be dropped off by 9:30 am, unless prior arrangements’ have been made. Having all children dropped off by 9:30 am will help keep structure and flow in the classroom and helps the child transition during free play.
