Insurance is purchased by the school for each child. This is an accident policy and is for the protection of the child.


Children must by three or four years of age before November 30th and must be toilet trained. They must be able to use the bathroom by themselves.

Health Requirements

State law requires that each child must have a physical examination and be up to date on all immunizations before entering school. Health forms are provided for this purpose.

Children with colds, fevers or signs of contagious disease will be expected to remain at home. If your child contracts a contagious disease, please telephone the teachers.

Fund Raisers

One or two fund raisers will be held during the school year. We ask the parent’s cooperation as the revenue from these goes into the purchase of equipment that we would not otherwise be able to afford.

Group Meetings

One or more meetings of the parents may be held depending upon the desires and needs of the group.


Visitors are always welcome, but advance notice would be appreciated.
