Drop off & pick up information
Morning Drop-off is at 8:30 am.
For your child’s SAFETY, please stay in your car and drop your child off at the school gate. He or she will be greeted by one of the teachers or the Day School Director who will help them out of their car seat and brought onto the playground.
Pick-up is at 1:30 pm. Enter the north side of the parking lot, position yourself in line, and drive around to the school gate. Your child will then be placed in the car. If someone other than you will be picking up your child, please let us know in advance.
We offer an optional Stay and Play Program from 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm. Pick up for this program is run in the same way as stated above.
All children will need a morning snack and drink plus lunch and drink each day provided by the parents. For those children enrolled in the optional Stay and Play Program from 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm, parents will also need to provide an afternoon snack and drink. A sleep mat for nap time is also required. Bedding is sent home weekly for cleaning.
After an active and social time on the playground following drop-off, we start each day at 9:00 am by raising the flag and gathering together to recite the Pledge of Allegiance and say the Lord’s Prayer. Then we go into the classroom for circle time which includes the calendar, weather and sharing.
The classrooms are set up as developmentally appropriate educational centers where the children learn through hands-on activities.
Emphasis is placed on kindness and encouraging the children to appreciate each other. Our school activities and playground time encourage positive social interaction in a fun, safe and creative atmosphere.
Much attention is paid to arts and imaginative play. The children are exposed to letters, numbers, colors, shapes, music, science, and the calendar. Our students are very well prepared for kindergarten.
- Children’s chapel
Tuesday is Chapel Day and parents are welcome to join us in the Church for this special time. The children join in prayers and songs of praise. The Rector or Curate shares a Bible story. Kindness awards are presented to those children who were observed being especially kind during the week.
Children love to sing. Following singing in Chapel, the children have music class led by our Director of Music where many of the songs we learn are heard at our programs for Thanksgiving, Christmas and our Spring Frolic.
- Show & tell
This is scheduled on a monthly basis. Let your child make the choice of what to bring to share with the class (If alive, let us know in advance and please, NO WEAPONS!).
- Color days
The children come to school wearing the color of the month. It’s a fun way to learn colors.
- High Touch/High Tech Science
The team from High Touch/High Tech do a great job of bringing science into the classroom. All of the children have a hands-on experience with science experiments and enjoy discovering new things about the world around them.
- Birthday celebrations
We welcome celebrations in the classroom. Feel free to join in.
- Parent coffee mornings
Each month a parent hosts a coffee morning in the school office. A light snack is provided together with coffee. This informal, relaxed gathering gives parents the opportunity to get to know one another.
