Questions Parents May Ask

Just ask! We firmly believe that giving you honest, helpful feedback when you ask for it, even on a moment’s notice, to help you understand how and what your child is doing in preschool, is one of our greatest skills, and one that can be overlooked by preschools. We are also committed to letting you know if any issues come up with your child that we think we should talk to you about.
Separation anxiety in children is very natural. Children do grow out of this condition, generally by four years of age. If your child has tantrums, yells are clingy or cry a lot, be reassured that these are all normal reactions, and show that they have a loving bond with you. Most children tend to stop crying about three or four minutes after their parent leaves. Separation anxiety can come and go for a while; however, children soon learn to adapt and this does not cause them long-term harm.
Montessori is an education method based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning, and collaborative play. In Montessori classrooms, children make creative choices in their knowledge, while the school and the teacher offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process.
The parents provide healthy peanut-free snacks and a daily water bottle. Children wash their hands before and after eating. Appropriate table manners are taught; meanwhile, children have the chance to socialize during snack time.
If your child isn’t toileting independently, teachers are willing to assist; however, diapers are not permitted. Every child will need a change of clothing for school, just in case.
To discipline means to help children develop self-control, self-confidence, and ultimately self-discipline and sensitivity in their interactions with others. We use many different strategies for prevention and intervention.
Children requiring extra support are accepted if this environment poses no dangers to the child. We will work with the families to provide one-to-one support if needed.
Our play space includes Glenn Park and Mount Slessee playground. Children wear reflective vests and will be using a walking rope during our off school ground trips.
