Does my child need to be potty trained to attend Tangerine Schoolhouse?
No. We will work on potty training with children when they are showing us they are ready. We will work with our families too to make sure we are making the process as smooth as possible.
Do I need to bring food for my child?
No. We cook food fresh each day and serve healthy meals and snacks. Breakfast is served around 8:30am, lunch is served around 12:30pm and an afternoon snack is served around 4:00.
What do I need to bring?
We ask that you bring an extra change of clothes in case of an accident or a mess.
If your child is in diapers, please bring in diapers and wipes. We will notify you when we are running low and need more.
The only other thing you may choose to bring is a blanket for rest time. Please make sure it is not too thick and can be folded up flat to fit in a cubby.
Can my child bring their favorite toy?
Yes. Many schools will not allow outside toys to be brought in, as there is a chance they could be lost or damaged. At Tangerine Schoolhouse we know how important some of these toys can be to children and that they want to share that excitement with their school family. If you chose to send a toy to school with your child, please keep in mind the following:
We are not responsible for lost or damaged toys. But we will do our best to take good care of it!
Label the toy with your child's name. This is the easiest way to make sure it gets back to your child at the end of the day.
No violent toys or weapon-based toys.
Do you provide drop-in care?
We do not. Our programs are based on on-going learning projects and experiences that rely on consistent attendance to participate in.
Do you have cameras I can view?
We do not have cameras with parental access. This is for the privacy and safety of our students. Even with programs with individual sign in access, there is no way to regulate the sharing of passwords and it's impossible to know who might be watching the school at any time. For this reason, parents do not have access to school cameras.
