  1. Can we celebrate my child's birthday at school?
Your child is welcome to bring a birthday treat to share with the class.  Be aware that if your child's class has allergy concerns, please check with the teacher on safe treats to bring.  You will also be given a class roster in case you would like to send out birthday invitations as invitations cannot be passed out at school.

  1. What and when are Pizza Days?
Pizza Days are the one day a month that school dismisses at 1pm so that all of the teachers can meet to plan curriculum for the next month.  Your child will not need to pack a lunch as we provide Domino's pizza, Capri Sun & a popsicle.  In the Fall (Oct - Dec) we will have Pizza Tuesdays (1st Tuesday of the month) and in the Spring (Jan - May) we will have Pizza Wednesdays (1st Wednesday of the month).  Note: No nap mats are needed for the younger classes on Pizza Days.

  1. What is Little Lambs Medication Policy?
Little Lambs will only administer medication in a life threatening situation.  We must have signed medical authorization and an Allergy Action Plan.  Medication must be in the original container with the child's full name on it.

  1. How do I drop off my 18 mos or 2 yr old?
Park in the "new" parking lot of off Fairfield Meadow Drive (see map) and walk your child in through the main church doors.  Sign-in books are in the lobby.  Please fill out the "Daily Info Sheet" and place 2 diapers in the class tote.  Escort your child to his/her class and help them unload his/her backpack.  Filled "Sippie Cups" go in the Cup Tote inside of the classroom - please make sure your child's name is on his/her cup.

  1. How do I use the car line for my 3-5 yr old?
The Morning Car Line is available for our 3's, 4's & 5's classes.  We unload children at 8:55am to 9:10am.  Children that arrive after 9:10am end of car line need to be walked in by the parents and checked into their teachers.  In the afternoon, parents will walk to the child's classroom to pick up their child.  Please sign the "Sign-out Sheet" by the classroom door.

  1. What if someone else will be picking up my child today?
If you have a Transportation Change, please send a note from home (please use a sheet of paper big enough to find in your child's folder).  We will confirm that the person picking up is on the "Pick Up List".  And we will check the driver's license at pick-up time.

  1. When is my tuition due?
Tuition is due on the 1st and late after the 10th of each month, September through May.  Please make checks payable to "Little Lambs".  Students are subject to dismissal after the 16th.

18 mos/2's get a "daily information sheet" and a weekly letter
3's send home a weekly letter
4's & 5's get a detailed monthly calendar
The school will print a monthly newsletter.  And each family will receive a Photo CD at the end of the school year with activities in which your child participated.

  1. How can I become involved at school?
You can sign up as a volunteer with Claire Hoffman.  We would love to have you help us with our enrichment activities (Fall Festival, Multi-cultural Days, Water Day, etc.).  You can also get involved by sharing a special hobby or doing an activity together with the children.  You could also sign up to substitute.  Training is scheduled for Sept 9th & 10th this year.  A complete background check must be done prior to substituting.  Substitutes will be added to the list based on need.

  1. Will you heat my child's lunch?
We are unable to do this.

  1. What should my child wear to school?
Play clothes and tennis shoes.  Please do not send your child in backless shoes or high-heeled dress-up shoes to school.  These are not safe for the types of activities we do at school.
