Preschool Age Requirements

  • 3 years old by September 1st
  • 4 years old by September 1st

Toilet Training

All students must be toilet-trained by the first day of school. This means that the child knows when he/she needs to use the toilet and can do so on his/her own. We realize that there will be times when a child may need assistance in the bathroom and the teacher and or teacher aide will assist. Three fecal and/or urinating incidents is cause for disenrollment. Pull-up disposable pants are considered diapers and are not permitted, per the Department of Health Services licensing regulation #R9-505. We ask that you provide a spare set of clothes (labeled with your child’s first and last names) at school, contained in a clear plastic bag, should a child need to change clothes due to being soiled (ie. getting wet from the water table or wetting themselves).
