What should my child bring?
A backpack with their name on it, a non-spillable water bottle that is labeled, an extra clean mask and a change of clothes in a Ziploc bag according to the season. Please make sure all your child’s items are labeled. We ask that children come to class in closed toe shoes.
Has the sick policy changed?
Yes, please take the time to look at the Parent Handbook and familiarize yourself with it. Students need to be 72 hours symptom free before returning to class. You will be required to self-certify your child by 8:30 AM every morning. The links will be sent out via Remind to each specific class, you can also find them on our website under the Preschool tab.
What is the drop off procedure?
Parents will not come into the classroom. Teachers will check your child in at the classroom door when you arrive and check your child out at the classroom door when you pick up. Please have an ID ready to show at Pick-Up for the first couple of weeks to help us get to know who is picking up what child. Anyone picking up your child must be on the Emergency Form and show an ID. We ask that you do not congregate in the hallways and use the appropriate doors to enter & exit.

Ages 3 & 4 years by September 1, 2020
The primary goal of the Kids Connection preschool program is to provide children with a stimulating environment in which they can develop. The program will provide varied experiences that will promote development in all areas: Social, Emotional, Intellectual and Motor. The staff will strive to give each child a positive feeling of self-worth and value each child’s uniqueness. The facilities and planned activities are designed to provide an environment in which each child can freely express themselves and develop their potential. The children are encouraged to communicate with other children and adults, to explore, discover and learn through creative interaction. It is our goal to provide rewarding and exciting first experiences with school.
