What are your hours?
We are open Monday – Friday from 7:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M.
What schedules do you offer?
We offer three different daily schedules. Children may attend two to five days a week. You may choose the day your child attends, but it does need to be on a set schedule.
Morning Program: 9:00 A.M. – 12:30 P.M.
Full School Day: 9:00 A.M. – 3:00 P.M.
Extended Day: 7:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M.
Are you licensed or affiliated?
We are licensed by the NJ Department of Children and Families. We have annual inspections as well as surprise inspections all year long. We are affiliated with NAEYC and follow their guidelines for developmentally appropriate practices.
Are your staff members educated and trained?
Our staff members and teachers are all educated and experienced in early childhood education and development; many hold college degrees and/or CDAs. Monthly training is conducted across a broad range of topics for all staff members. All of our lead teachers have a minimum of two years’ experience, and most have more than 15 years!
How is your staff turnover?
We have VERY LOW STAFF TURNOVER, which is important because children and families need to form close bonds with their caregivers and teachers.
Are children of different ages grouped together?
Children are grouped into their classes based upon their ages and developmental levels. Children of various ages do come together for special events, parties, trips, and opening and closing periods. This allows each child to grow academically with similarly skilled children but also allows for the occasional mixed-age grouping, which leads to the family feel we strive to have here at our child development center.
Do you welcome parent involvement, can I stop by unannounced?
The answer is “YES!” Our school is a community that is open and encourages family participation. We host events throughout the year, including parties, trips, special guest visitors, and more!
How do you communicate with parents?
We use the Brightwheel platform to provide daily updates, photos, digital check-in, paperless billing, and real-time feed of activities throughout the day. We also post activities, contests, and events on our Facebook, Pinterest, and YouTube pages.
What will my child be learning in your preschool?
We offer an academic, literature based curriculum. All classes have sequential and developmental learning opportunities daily. We also have month long community service projects, holiday celebrations, and multicultural activities throughout the year.
Do you prepare for school readiness?
Our programs are designed to ensure that your child will be ready for Kindergarten. We have collaborated with local school districts to make sure that our students are prepared beyond the standards currently established for kindergarten readiness. Our learning is sequential, measurable, and goal specific.
How often do you clean the rooms and toys?
All of our facilities (including toys) are cleaned multiple times a day. The bathrooms and the changing tables are disinfected continuously over the course of the day.
What is your policy regarding sick children?
In order to keep our children, their families, and our staff as healthy as possible, we require that any child with a fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or contagious disease be kept at home.
What are your health policies?
In NJ, daycare centers are to be provided with certain health information. A complete health assessment form by the child’s primary care provider is required. It is the parent’s responsibility to maintain current health and immunization records.
Do you have a playground, is there daily outside time?
We have a playground behind our building. We have a small sized jungle gym, sand, water play, and children’s garden in the spring and summer. The playground is fenced in for security, and the yard is covered in mulch to avoid playground injuries. In addition to free play, we conduct learning experiences outside on a regular basis (weather permitting).
Do you have technology?
We offer our students modern technology and learning programs. Our classrooms feature Kindle Fire Tablets, desktop and laptop computers, the ABC Mouse Program, the Little Pim Spanish Program, and the Little Champion Reader Program.
What security measures are in place to protect my child?
Your child’s safety and your peace of mind are of the utmost concern. Our entire daycare facility is locked from the outside, and the play yard is fenced in. We have automatic smoke and fire detection alarms, and all staff have criminal background checks, fingerprinting, and emergency preparedness training.
How is tuition paid?
We are happy to offer our families an easy auto-pay service. This prevents late payments and late fees! Enrollment is simple to do and is FREE!
Who provides meals and snacks?
Families provide all meals and snacks for their children. We do offer a daily lunch that may be purchased as well as snacks in our café area.
Is potty trained a requirement?
Your child DOES NOT need to be potty trained. Preschool admission is not based on this skill. All children develop at their own pace. Staff members will help parents when it is time to toilet train, and a positive plan will be implemented!
What is your admissions policy?
Kidz Campus is a non-discriminatory program and admits all students and staff from all races, religious beliefs, ethnic backgrounds, and national origins. We are a non-religious school, but we do celebrate all holidays and celebrations found in our school community. We strive to reach respect and understanding of all people.
What is Playcare?
Playcare is drop-in child care and programs for our enrolled families. This is only available to children registered in our program. This option is available based on classroom space and school activities.
