SECURITY DOORS - In an effort to provide a secure and safe environment for your child we have installed security doors at the entrance of the preschool. People entering the building will need a code to enter. We ask that parents choose a four digit number that they will remember as their code. To provide accountability for who was in the building at any given time, we ask that each individual picking up a child have their own code. If someone is picking up occasionally, they do not need a code. They can just ring the bell for assistance. Please help us keep the building secure by not encouraging someone that you do not know to enter when the door is opened.
Cameras have been installed in our hallways to provide accountability and a greater security within the preschool building.
CHECKING IN AND OUT - You will be given a check in/check out code for the computer. Each person picking up and dropping off will be given their own code, please do not share codes. Ensure you and your family do this daily.
Please escort your child to class and make sure the child is received by a staff member. Classroom staff is expected to acknowledge children with a warm welcome. Separation anxiety can sometimes be more difficult for the parent than the child. We suggest a hug, reassurance that you will be back at the end of the day and then not lingering too long. In most cases the child adjusts quickly to the classroom and gets involved. Please be assured that if this is not the case, you will be consulted, and we will work together to develop strategies to assist in your child’s adjustment.
When picking a child up at the end of the day, please speak with the staff member in charge of your child in case there are any notes, accident reports or letters from the teacher. Be certain to check your child’s cubby and folder to take home your child’s work or communication from the preschool. Do not ever leave your child unsupervised. We will not be able to release a child to an underage sibling.
OPEN DOOR POLICY - Parents have access to their children at all times during business hours. St. Petersburg Christian Preschool is open Monday thru Friday from 7AM to 6PM.
