ADMISSIONS & ENROLLMENT
Open house dates for January and February 2022 will be published here very soon.
Enrollment Policy ~ We accept all children regardless of race, color, religion. A registration packet must be completed and returned at the time of registration. Ours is a flexible model that recognizes families schedules and circumstances change, sometimes daily. Please contact us for any admissions/enrollment questions, as we are confident we can work with you and your child's needs. Our low tuition distinguishes us as the most affordable private school in the area, and we shall gladly share our rates with you when you call or write.
Toilet training ~ POTTY TRAINING IS PART OF THE LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR OUR TWO-YEAR-OLD PROGRAM. Thus, we accept students, even older ones, who are still potty training or are preparing for it. We know it can be difficult to find a program that welcomes children who are not yet fully trained or are experiencing difficulties. We are here to help you with this important milestone, and together, we shall succeed for and with your child.
All students must be accompanied by an adult when dropped off or picked up. They must also be signed in and out each day with the adult’s name as well as the time dropped off and picked up. The State requires us to have a record of attendance and this list is also used in the event of an emergency so we are aware of who is in the building.
An emergency form and “alternate pick up” form is distributed on the first day of school and kept in the students’ folder. Alternate pick up adults are required to show their driver’s license.
Change of clothes ~ Accidents do happen occasionally, and we approach them with loving care, not derision. We ask that each family send in a complete set of shirt, pants, underwear & socks stored in a Ziploc bag labeled with the child’s first and last name.
Food Allergies ~ We are a peanut/tree nut free school due to food allergies in order to provide a safe environment for all children.
Birthdays ~ Every child’s birthday will be celebrated on a day closest to their birthday. Parents are welcome to bring a treat to school.
Sharing ~ Each teacher will send home a notice regarding your child’s share day and objects that can be shared in their classroom.
Outdoor clothing ~ Please send your child to school with a coat each day as the weather varies especially in the fall and spring. During winter months, please send children with a hat, mittens & boots, if necessary. We go outdoors if the temperature is above 32 degrees with little or no wind-chill. Also we occasionally send home permission slips to play outside in the snow & sledding.
Snacks ~ Snacks and drinks are provided twice a day by the Sisters and Staff of Sacred Heart of Jesus Daycare-Preschool-Kindergarten Center. Children with food allergies are given snacks that are approved by their Parent/Guardian as well as their Pediatrician.
Lunch ~ Lunch is to be provided by Parents/Guardians of our students. We ask that you pack their lunch with an ice-pack to keep sandwiches, drinks, yogurts, etc., cold. Please pack a healthy lunch with minimal “junk food” items. Parents/Guardians must also label their child’s lunch bag.
Parent Volunteers ~ We always welcome Parents/Guardians to volunteer and assist in our activities at our Center.
*A Volunteer form is given at the beginning of the school year.
