1. What ages do you enroll?
We take children ages 6 weeks-12 years! Our teachers are fully qualified for teaching all ages!
2. Do you provide transportation for before/after school kids?
Unfortunately we do not. We walk with the children to drop off and pick up if they go to Cajon Park school. We do accept children from other schools, but they will need to have their own transportation.
3. Do you accept any child, regardless of sex or race?
Absolutely! We are open to any healthy child! We accept any race, sex, or creed varying between the ages of 6 weeks to 12 years of age! Prior to admission, all children shall be immunized against disease as required by the California code of regulations.
4. What if I don't get my children immunized?
California State law requires that all children in school be immunized unless there is a medical reason that they don't. If you are able to get a Doctors note stating that your child is exempt from immunizations, we would gladly accept them at our center!
5. Is it easy to enroll?
It's very easy! You will be given a packet of forms to fill out about you and your child, then you will need to pay the $45 registration fee! Once your child's first week or month (depending how you are planning to pay) of tuition is paid, your child may attend on their start date!
6. Do I have to provide my child with a lunch, diapers/wipes, etc.?
Great question! Yes you do. Also, if your child is in the infant room and gets formula, please make sure bottles are already prepared. We are not allowed to mix them ourselves. We have had parents ask for suggestions for lunch ideas, because making a lunch every day causes them to run out of ideas. We are definitely willing to give ideas, just ask!
7. What if I only need my child to attend school for a few hours?
We offer 1/2 day pricing as well! Our 1/2 day hours are from 8:00am-2:00pm!
8. Are you just a day care, or do you provide a curriculum as well?
We are so glad you asked! We definitely provide a curriculum for your child. Each room prepares the children for the next room they will enter, which will eventually prepare your child for kindergarten. Each week, our teachers plan the next weeks curriculum, which include activities to learn numbers, colors, ABCs, and shapes! They also learn name recognition and eventually how to spell then write their names! The pre-k room also works on site words, reading, and simple math! The two younger classrooms do fun themed art projects each day also! The children are read stories, and they sing songs they already know, while also learning new songs! We have a different theme each month, which you will see posted in your child's classroom, but it will also be posted on our website each month!
9. What qualifications do your teachers have?
All of our teachers are CPR/First Aid certified! Our head teachers all have at least 12 ECE units, and our assistant teachers have at least 6 ECE units! They have all had training in how to provide a positive learning environment for your children! Our teachers are also required to get fingerprints for background checks, a physical and a TB test before being considered for employment. We take your child's safety very seriously!
10. What is your teacher to child ratio?
For ages 6 weeks-2 years it is required to have a 1:4 ratio, for 2 years-5 years a 1:12 ratio, and for ages 5 years-12 years a 1:18 ratio. For extra safety for your children, our child to teacher ratio is lower than required.
11. Do you potty train?
Yes! We start potty training in the 2 year old room! Our teachers are experienced in potty training and will work with your child. We understand that each child is trained at a different speed, and we will work at their pace and yours. We like to make sure the teachers and parents are on the same page, so we will communicate with you as we potty train your child. We will let you know when we feel they are ready for underwear, and go from there!
12. What if I don't need care for 5 days?
That's ok! You can choose 2, 3 or 4 days! Call us to check for prices!
13. I am a nurse and some weeks my work days might be different. Can I change my days?
Unfortunately no. Your days need to be consistent each week, but if you need an extra day and we have availability, you can pay the extra day fee! Call to check for prices!
If you have any other questions that were not answered here, please don't hesitate to call/email to ask!
