It is our policy that a child must be toilet trained prior to enrollment.
The COVID pandemic situation is continually changing. We look to the CDC, the Bucks County Department of Health, and the Palisades School District for guidance in setting up COVID protocols. As recommendations change, we may also change our practices. Our biggest concern is doing our best to keep everyone safe and healthy.
Arrival & Departure
The class hours for the Preschool Class are 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
We will provide a light, healthy snack every class day. We ask that you send in water with your child.
Birthdays are a very important day. Please mention your child’s birthday in advance to the teacher so she can plan for the event. We celebrate birthdays during snack time. Some suggestions for a birthday snack are: donut holes, ice cream cups, popsicles, cookies, cupcakes, or rice krispie treats.
Pleasant Valley Preschool is an active program. Please send your child to school in play clothes. Each child should bring a smock (labeled with his or her name) for painting days. It should cover their play clothes.
Show & Tell
Show & Tell helps to develop self-confidence and language skills. We have themes for Show & Tell (nature, cultural events, holidays, shapes, etc.). Please send in something that fits the theme. Check your monthly calendar for your child’s assigned dates.
Holidays and School Closings
Pleasant Valley Preschool will observe the same school holidays as the Palisades School District.
Illness and Absence
If your child has a fever, vomits, has diarrhea, or a persistent cough, or contracts a contagious condition (such as impetigo, pinworm, chicken pox, pink eye, lice, etc.), please do not send him or her to school without a written doctor’s release. Illness spreads easily among this age group and we ask for your full cooperation regarding this policy. We ask you to inform us immediately should your child contract any transmittable or contagious condition so that we may inform the other parents.
Our method of discipline is “TIME OUT” after two warnings.
You are welcome to visit the class at any time. Please give us about a month into the school year to get the children into our regular routine before scheduling a visit. If you are interested in sharing a craft or project, please contact the teacher to make arrangements.
We will be making field trips to local points of interest to enrich the classroom experience. There will be a nominal fee for some of these trips. Permission slips must be signed and handed in prior to the day of the trip.
We have several fundraisers throughout the school year to help fund the purchase of new toys, books, and items for the classroom. You are under no obligation to participate in any of the fundraisers.
Around mid-school year we will send home a progress report for the Pre-K children. We will also schedule conferences with the parents of the Pre-K children. If you have a problem or concern you would like to discuss regarding your child’s progress, please schedule a time to meet with the teacher.
Tuition is due on the 15th of the month preceding the month that the tuition covers. For example, tuition for October is due on September 15th. Tuition payments should be placed in an envelope marked with the student’s name and placed in the mailbox at the church. There is a mail slot to the left of the door. It may also be mailed to the church.
