Field Trips

On special occasions we may take a field trip to a location away from the center. Parents will be notified ahead of the scheduled trip and will be asked to sign a permission slip allowing their children to participate. If you do not want your child to participate please speak with the director and other arrangements will be made. During a field trip, the children to teacher ratios are increased to ensure the children’s safety and needs are met.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Parental communication is very important to us at Jubilee Kids’ Academy. Please feel free to share any concerns or questions about the Center and your child with our staff at any time. We will hold an annual conference with you to discuss your child’s development.

Meals & Snacks

In an effort to prevent dangerous allergic reactions, Jubilee is a PEANUT FREE school.

We serve a breakfast, a mid-morning snack, a noon meal, and an afternoon snack. These are nutritionally planned for each age group at Jubilee Kids’ Academy and a menu of each meal will be posted monthly on the refrigerator for the toddlers and preschoolers. We encourage the children to try two bites of everything on their plates, but do not force the children to eat something. They may have seconds on their favorites as long as there is food left. Staff members encourage the children to use good table manners and the use of our favorite words…“please” and “thank you”. Children must ask to be excused from the table and assume the responsibility of clearing their dishes.

Safety & Security

We take safety and security very seriously at Jubilee Kids’ Academy. Our playground is fenced in with sand and bark play surfaces and is always supervised. We make it a priority to see that no dangerous toys are brought to the preschool and that their play environment is safe. During “rest time” one volunteer is always in the room with the children. Cleaning supplies and medications are locked safe out of the reach of children. Children are checked in and out of the facility by parent or guardian. If someone different will be picking them up a photo id is required. Every six months we will conduct fire and earthquake drills. Risk Management plan and Emergency information is updated frequently.

Cleanliness

Keeping germs at bay is important, therefore we encourage children to wash their hands throughout the day and teach lessons about health and hygiene. Floors are cleaned daily and toys are cleaned on a regular basis. Diapering is conducted in a separate area from the children’s play area.

Diapers and Potty-Training

If your child is still in diapers, you will need to provide diapers and wipes to the staff of his/her room. We also request that you provide a second set of extra clothes, particularly if your child is potty training. Classroom teachers will notify parents when their diaper supply is getting low. When you feel your child is ready to begin potty training, please communicate with his or her teachers. We will be happy to help during this challenging and exciting time, but communication is essential. We have potty chairs in every bathroom to make the child more comfortable.

Children are never punished for toileting accidents!
