Pre-K3 FAQ

PRE-K3 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

 

How many students are in each class?

                The maximum number of students is 20 per class.

 

What is your teacher student ratio?

                We have a teacher and an aide in each Pre-K3 classroom.

 

What is your daily schedule?

                Students arrive between 8:00-8:10. Upon arrival, they do table activities and learning centers. Our daily morning routine begins with attendance, calendar activities, and sharing time. From there, we begin our Investigator’s Club curriculum which consists of small group time, whole group time and everyday literacy. During this time, we also incorporate our learning centers and snack time. We end our morning with our religion lesson. In addition, we have P.E., visit the library, and enjoy music once a week.

 

If my child only attends half day, will they be missing out?

              No, they will not miss out on any learning experiences. Since we have many students who only stay half day, we focus all of our teaching during the morning hours. When half day students are dismissed at 11:30, our full day students have lunch followed by recess. There is also a rest time in the afternoon. Once the students wake up from nap, we have a brief closing circle time.

 

Do I have to pack my child’s lunch every day if they are full time?

                Yes, parents must pack a lunch every day. We eat our lunch in our classroom; therefore, we do not have access to a microwave or refrigerator. The school provides milk for all students at lunch every day.

 

Do you go on field trips?

                No. The Pre-K 3’s will have a Fall/Pumpkin day on school grounds and a cultural arts experience during the year.


Do you allow parent volunteers in the classroom?

Parents have the opportunity to volunteer to help with class parties and other special times the teacher may need volunteers. All volunteers must be VIRTUS certified before they are permitted to help with any volunteer activity in the school. In addition, the Home School Association (H.S.A) always offers many opportunities to volunteer throughout the school in different capacities.
