Preschool guidelines and procedures

  • The instructor will greet you and your child and guide you through the drop-off process. A parent or guardian is required to sign-in and sign-out their child each day.

  • At preschool, we are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for children to learn, play, and grow. Please keep your child at home if they experience any of the following:

    • A fever above 38C*
    • Diarrhea or vomiting
    • A persistent cough
    • A runny nose with yellow-green mucus
    • An undiagnosed rash.
    • Discharge from the eyes
    • A diagnosed infection*
    • Lethargic or listless
    • Generally unwell

    *Your child may return to class once they are fever free for 24hrs without the use of medication or if their diagnosed infection has been treated for a minimum of 48hrs.

    Please report any cases of communicable diseases which may be present in your home (ex. chicken pox, scarlet fever, whooping cough, measles, lice, etc.) to

  • Children must be fully toilet trained before starting unparented programs. For extra reassurance, little ones may wear a pull-up during program time. If an accident occurs, parents will be contacted to attend to any changing needs.

    What to bring to class:

    Ensure that all items outlined below are clearly labelled with your child’s name.

    • A backpack with indoor shoes and extra clothes.
    • A water bottle (all programs).
    • A small, nut free snack for half-day programs (3 hours).
    • A small, nut free snack and lunch for full-day camps (6 hours).
    • Appropriate clothing for outdoor play.
    • Please leave items like toys and blankets at home.

    Prepare for outdoor play:

    • Recommended winter wear:
      • Wear layers to allow for regulation of body temperature.
      • Choose a hat that covers the whole head, including the ears.
      • Appropriate footwear such as running shoes, rain boots, or winter boots.
      • Wear pants that are warm and waterproof. Snow pants are recommended for colder months and rain pants are recommended for rainy days.
      • Mittens are better than gloves for keeping hands warm, as fingers generate more heat when they are not separated.
    • Recommended summer wear:
      • Dress your child in layers to allow for regulation of body temperature. 
      • Open-toe shoes such as sandals are not permitted. 
      • Apply sunscreen and bug spray prior to drop-off. 
      • Bring a hat for additional sun protection.
