What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept personal checks and electronic bank transfers. Please inquire about other methods of payment such as Venmo or Paypal.
What if my child doesn't nap?
Non-napping children are encouraged to rest quietly on their beds so that others may fall asleep easily. Most of the children do need some sleep and we want to preserve their quiet time for them. After an hour of rest, children may get up and look at books until their friends begin to wake up. We have not found this system to be problematic, as most children are very tired after a morning full of playing and learning and typically don't mind getting some rest.
Do you take days off during the year?
Our school closures can be found on our Holiday Schedule, viewable here.
Do you provide food for the children?
We provide a morning and afternoon snack, and parents provide a box lunch for the children each day. We also ask that you bring a clean, full water bottle to school each morning.
