The two-year-old class is open to children who are two-years-old. Children remain in the class until they are at least thirty months to three years of age and there is an opening in a three-year-old classroom. This class distinction is in keeping with state age requirements.
Our two-year-old class has an enrollment of twelve students and two teachers. This ensures that your child will receive the love and respect they deserve.
Children in the two-year-old class may come to school in diapers. Naptime takes place everyday after lunch. We will provide a clean *cot for your child and will work with each child individually in creating the best napping experience as possible.
Our teachers are well educated and will answer any questions or concerns that you have. We encourage new families to schedule a visit with the classroom teacher prior to their first day of school so that they can meet their teacher and visit the classroom. The teachers in the classroom will be able to suggest ideas about making a smooth transition into the new environment.
The three-year-old class is open to children who will turn three-years-old before December 1st of the school year enrolled.
Toilet training is strongly advised for the three-year-old class. Our teachers will work with your child during their first month to complete toilet training while attending the three-year-old class. After a month the children in the three-year-old class should be potty trained to allow for a successful line-up as they get ready to enter into the Pre-Kindergarten class. Any exceptions based on developmental readiness will be made on the teacher and director’s assessment and/or a doctor’s assessment when necessary.
Naps are encouraged for all three-year-olds every afternoon. Children will be given a clean *cot to sleep on. While teachers will not make your child sleep, children are required by the state of California to have a rest time at school.
In order to keep in line with the public school entrance requirements, students may enroll in the pre-kindergarten class if they are four-years-old on/before September 1st of the school year enrolled. Entry dates are established by the state to ensure a smooth transition into kindergarten after preschool graduation.
Children must be completely toilet trained before entering the pre-kindergarten class. This is a necessity because of the classroom layout and the location of the restroom.
Naps are encouraged for all four-year-olds every afternoon. Children will be given a clean *cot to sleep on. If your child does not usually nap, please inform the teachers. While teachers will not make your child sleep, children are required by the state of California to have a rest time at school.
*We encourage parents to purchase bedding designed for the cots we use. We recommend the “Kid-Napper” which can be purchased through the preschool office.
