A permission slip is required for the following:
- For a child to leave school with someone other than their parent.
- Dispensing of any medication to a child by a staff member.
- Evaluative screenings by outside sources.
- Participating in special meal days in our Extended Care Program.
At this time, Little Disciples Preschool does not participate in off-campus field trips. Instead, we bring the field trip to the children through various speakers and presenters and activities each year.
Children should wear play clothes that are comfortable and will not restrict them from participating in any activities. We require all children to wear socks in sneakers/tennis shoes daily. One-piece outfits should not be worn. Flip-flops, sandals, and cowboy boots are not allowed.
Please dress children for actual weather conditions. We will go outside every day (weather permitting) and are required to have children wear jackets in cooler temperatures. Dress your child appropriately. Please label all jackets/sweaters so that when the end-of-day temperature no longer requires it, we are still able to find your child’s jacket.
Emergency medical treatment will be administered by our staff or by a paramedic. You will be contacted if your child has a serious accident while in school. If we cannot reach you, we will call the person listed on the enrollment form. A written signed report will be on file in the office for minor accidents and a copy will be sent home to the parents.
Our main line of communication with parents is through daily interaction at drop-off and again at pick-up, as well as through the use of notes and newsletters, office letters, and teacher letters. All messages will be sent home with your child. The Preschool Office sends home letters bi-monthly to keep you informed of all preschool activities. Beneva Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) also provides a monthly Good News with an informational Little Disciples Preschool article. Visit their website at: lifeatbeneva.org. A copy of our Grievance Procedures is included in the Student Folder provided at Open House (or upon enrollment). It is our hope that the lines of communication remain open, positive, and meaningful for all parties concerned.
