WHAT WE REQUIRE
Our preschool classes enroll children between three and five years of age at entrance, who have not yet attended kindergarten. Our toddler and early preschool classrooms enroll children between 18 and 36 months of age at entrance.
Your child does not have to be toilet trained for our program (as this is viewed as a developmental process that occurs in with families). All Center classrooms are inclusive and serve a wide range of ethnically and developmentally diverse children and their families. In the preschool program, however, we expect mutual partnership with the child, parent, and teaching staff in helping the child be successful and consistent in toilet training with minimal help.
The primary criterion of eligibility is the child’s emotional readiness to be separated from his/her parents and the parents’ willingness to share the care of the child with the Child Development Center staff.
Admission is open to all children 18 months-5 1/2 years of age (pre-kindergarten) regardless of race, creed, color, or national origin. Children of students, staff and community may be enrolled in either two, three, or five day full-day programs.
As a campus laboratory school, we strive to model our classroom enrollment to reflect the diversity of today’s families and our community. As such, we respect a family’s student status, age, gender, primary language, ethnicity, culture, background and developmental needs in our enrollment.
