2018-2019 Information

Thank you for expressing an interest in The Ann Street School.  We have been serving the community with high quality Pre-Kindergarten and Preschool programs for over thirty years.  We work hard to develop programs that are both educational and fun while preparing your child for kindergarten.

We offer a flexible schedule to meet the needs of families in our community.  At the time of enrollment, families may choose the days of the week and times they would like their child to attend based on availability.  This allows families the ability to choose a schedule for their child that best fits into their family’s life.

Our program coincides with the Delaware Valley School district calendar.  Our school year is 180 days.  We expect our program to begin during the last week in August and continue through the second week of June.  We observe all Delaware Valley closings including holidays, emergency weather closings, and early dismissals.

We provide half day and full day academic programs for children 3, 4, and 5-years old.  Our school hours are 8:00AM – 4:00PM.  Half day programs are up to 4 hours of educational programing and full day programs are from 4 to 8 hours of educational programing.

Enrollment will be open to the public starting on March 15th.  Attached is a preliminary registration form.  Preschool students must be 3 years old and Pre-Kindergarten students must be 4 years old by September 1, 2018, or the cut-off date of your school district.  Reminder: all children must be potty-trained (this means completely independent in the bathroom, including removing and restoring their own clothing).  In order to hold your child’s spot, the office must receive this form and a $100.00 non-refundable registration fee for each child.

CLASS SIZE & STAFF

Class size is limited to 10 children with one teacher. Our staff/child ratio provides a premium learning environment that affords a great deal of individual attention.

All our teachers are highly qualified educators with bachelor degrees in Early Childhood Education or credentials in Child Development.

 

TOILETING POLICY

All children must be able to toilet independently. Children should be dressed in clothing that they can manage entirely by themselves when they use the restroom.

 

GETTING READY

School separation is often harder on parents as usually children are enthusiastic about going to school.  Consider adjusting your schedule to prepare for school.  Move bedtime up so your child will awake on his or her own and be rested and ready for school.  Share  in the enthusiasm, talk about “their” school beforehand and, above all – BE POSITIVE.
