How does the staff at Kiddie Prep School discipline the children in their care?

Child training and discipline is handled with kindness and understanding, but with firmness. Proverbs 12:1 says “Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid”.  The use of corporal punishment is forbidden.  Brief, supervised “time out” separation from the group may be used if necessary.  Attention is given to the needs of each individual child, while at the same time the child is encouraged to become a part of the group through group participation.


Can I visit my child while at Kiddie Prep School?

Parents are always welcome.  Observation in the classroom is encouraged.


Is there an registration fee? How much is it and when is it charged?

An enrollment fee of $50.00 is payable upon registering your child.  This fee is non-refundable.  This fee reserves a place in the school enrollment for a period of 30 days unless special arrangements are made with the administration and covers the cost of processing the application.

This fee is charged at the beginning of each fiscal year.


When are the tuition payments due?

Tuition is payable on Monday or Tuesday of each week.  Failure to pay tuition fees for two consecutive weeks will cause the child to be disenrolled.  In addition, we will be adding a $1.00 per day late fee, per child, for each day payment is late, through the date of disenrollment.  Please make checks or money orders payable to Kiddie Prep School. Cash payments are not acceptable.  A service charge is made for any returned check.

Bi-weekly payment plans which cover two weeks of tuition are acceptable, but must be made at least one week in advance, and must be approved by the office.

Tuition will be charged according to the child’s normal daily or weekly charges, regardless of illness.

There is a minimum attendance of two days for children enrolled on a part-time basis.


What are the acceptable methods of payment?

Kiddie Prep School accepts checks, money orders, Online Bill Payment or Auto-Withdrawal from your Banking Institution: NO CASH, please.


What holidays are observed by Kiddie Prep School?

Kiddie Prep School is closed on New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. Kiddie Prep School also closes early (1:00 p.m.) on Good Friday.

What do I need to know about my child receiving medications at Kiddie Prep School?
The giving or application of medication, providing dietary supplements, making special variation of diet, and carrying out medical procedures, shall be done only on the written order or prescription from a physician to the parents, or to the school with the knowledge of the parents.

Medications prescribed for an individual child shall be kept in the original container bearing the original pharmacy label showing the prescription number, date filled, physician’s name, directions for use, and the child’s name. When no longer needed, medication shall be returned to the parents or destroyed.

Medications requiring refrigeration shall be stored in a zip lock baggie in the medicine refrigerator.

Parents are responsible to complete a “Medication Form” in each classroom. The completed form should be given to the classroom teacher.

The school will give the mid day dosage of medication only.  The parents are responsible for any other times it is to be given.  If there are questions, please see the office.

Over the counter medication also needs to have documentation from your doctor's office.  Please contact your doctor's office and have them send us authorization on a prescription pad stating what medication can be given, how often, and for how long.
