These symptoms are usually contagious and we must protect the other children. We do not have the facilities nor the manpower to care for sick children. If your child becomes sick while in our care, please make arrangements to have them picked up as quickly as possible. Your cooperation in this matter is expected.
At Kid's Prep School every effort is made to provide a positive atmosphere of activities and learning. Positive reinforcement encourages appropriate behavior in children. The used of physical punishment is never permitted. We do not use time out. We re-direct the children and speak to them at their level.
Any time you would like to talk with a teacher or the director about your child's progress or problems, please call and make an appointment. Our teachers cannot stop to converse during class time but are more than happy to set up a time convenient for you.
Many times we take photographs of the children on and off campus. Therefore, there may be times when your child's photograph would appear in some of our advertisement and be displayed on our bulletin board, website and business facebook page. Please inform the front office if you do not want to have your child pictured displayed.
