Please bring your child directly to the teacher and pick up your child directly from the teacher. Please notify the teacher and school immediately if anyone other than yourself or the designated person indicated on your registration form is dropping off or picking up your child. Children should be dropped off no more than 5 minutes before the program starts and picked up on time, no later than 5 minutes after the programs ends. In the event that you might be late in picking up your child please call the office at 403.242.2896 or the Preschool directly at extension 358 to notify the Preschool and arrangements will be made for the teacher to remain with your child until you arrive.
CCS Learning Adventures has an expectation of mutual respect and consideration between all parties. The children will be treated with kindness, respect and love and that behaviour will be encouraged between students and staff. Should a problem arise between students, a staff member will try to help guide the children involved into resolving the situation amicably. Our goal is to help children learn to ask and express their wants and needs appropriately. If a child’s behaviour is inappropriate, a staff member will speak to the child and explain why their behavior is not acceptable and then help redirect the child to another activity. The Preschool’s philosophy includes helping children in a loving, gentle way to become more responsible for their actions and decisions.
Your participation in our classroom is very valuable to us, but especially important to your child. We invite you to volunteer in the classroom on a regular basis; teachers will provide calendars and opportunities to be involved. Please note: for their own safety and care, siblings may not attend on parent volunteer days. Volunteers must have a current Calgary Police Services and Social Services Child Intervention Check on file; forms and information available from Preschool staff. The involvement of parents is vital to a child’s educational experience and we encourage you to stay actively involved through regular communication with staff, volunteering and participation in Calgary Christian School events.
Show and Tell is a very important part of our program, and each child is encouraged to participate. This is a valuable chance for each child to practice public speaking and develop confidence in themselves. We also use this opportunity to practice listening skills and encourage children to ask questions. Teachers will inform parents of the schedule for each child.
Families are asked to provide a snack for their child for every class, in child-friendly portions and containers. We strongly encourage healthy snacks such as crackers, fruit, vegetables and cheese with a water bottle.
No Nuts - Learning Adventures Preschool is a NUT-FREE school. Please do not send any products containing nuts or traces of nuts.
