Preadmission Visit

We strongly recommend that parents and children visit the center at least one time before their first day. This visit helps the children make an easier transition. They will meet their teacher, see our facilities and have a general feel for the atmosphere.

During this visit, we will provide you with information about our policies and our program, including an overview of our curriculum. We will also answer any questions or concerns you may have about our center and our operations.

We welcome parent involvement in our children's education. While we do try to keep disruptions to a minimum during preschool instruction, we encourage parent visits. Parents are requested to use good judgment concerning their child's ability to adjust to their presence in the classroom and re-adjust when they leave.
