What should I do with medicine that my child must receive at school during the day?
It is placed in the basket at the gate in the morning and the secretary or nurse administers it according to the note you completed (available in the basket). The medicine is then left at the gate in the afternoon for you to take it home. No medication will be allowed without prior consent from the parent, and no antibiotics will be allowed within the first 48hours of receiving the prescription.
What precautionary methods are in place to ensure safety of the children?
We use Armed Response, our alarm system has panic buttons in all the classes, the offices and the security guard also has a panic button. We DO NOT accept any cash on the premises. We practice our emergency plan regularly at unexpected times to ensure that the staff and children know what to do in any situation. Children are signed out at the gate and the security guard knows all the parents, so NO child may leave the premises with a stranger unless it has been arranged with the office.
Does the school do potty training?
Yes, the teachers and assistants train the 1-3 year olds to use the potty and later on the toilet. We do however expect the cooperation of the parents in this regard.
