Policies And Procedures
Tuition is due by the 10th of each month starting in September and ending in May.
The State of Michigan requires children to be potty trained in order to attend Ross Preschool. We understand that children at this age can have accidents and we will help the child change if they are wet, otherwise a parent will be called to come change the child.
Admission into the preschool will be 5 minutes before classes are to begin.
Parents will sign-in and sign-out children on an attendance form.
Children will be released to parents one at a time at the end of class. Anyone picking up a child must be on the child information form.
Following arrival time the inside door to the preschool entrance will be locked. Entrance into the preschool will be allowed by ringing a bell and staff identifies the person seeking entrance on a monitor in the preschool room.
Health form with immunizations
Child information form
Please notify us if you choose not to immunize your child. The State of Michigan has new requirements for waivers.
We believe children need definite guidelines of discipline, that allow for freedom of choice and decision making within the defined boundaries to learn self-control, self-esteem and cooperation.
Physical punishment will not be used.
Ross Preschool follows Port Huron Area School Districts schedule for vacations including Thanksgiving, Christmas, Records Day, Mid-Winter Break and Spring Break.
In the event Port Huron Area Schools close for inclement weather we will also be closed.
If it should become necessary for you to withdraw your child we ask that you notify us as soon as possible.
We try to provide a safe, loving atmosphere for your child's first school experience. However, if a child is injured we will:
1. Administer basic first aid
2. Call parent or person listed on emergency card.
3. Seek emergency help if required.
We have fire and tornado drills during the school year.
We also have procedures for shelter in place, evacuation and lock down.
All staff are trained in CPR and First Aid.
Illness and Medication
No medication will be administered to any child by the staff while they are attending preschool. Epi-Pens may be left with preschool staff and administered in the event a child requires one during our care.
If a child shows signs of illness such as colored drainage, vomiting, rash, coughing or fever we request that child not attend class until these symptoms are gone. In case of a fever they may return 24 hours after the fever has returned to normal.
In the event a child appears to be sick at school, staff will make them as comfortable as possible and notify the parent to have the child picked up immediately.
We provide a nutritious snack of pure fruit juice and sugarless snacks such as crackers, pretzels and occasionally fruits and vegetables. We take food allergies in children very seriously and will take every precaution we can to make snack time safe for your child.
