FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I enroll my child or get on the waiting list?

Please email me at stewartlittledayschool@gmail.com to setup a school visit and begin the process.

What is your enrollment process?

Contact us to come for a school visit and to fill out an application, if interested. Once your application is complete, if we have spots available, you must submit first month's tuition to reserve your spot, annual supply fee ($200) and a $50 registration fee. These are non-refundable. You are asked to pay the first month tuition in advance because tuition payments are due one month in advance (i.e. November's tuition is due on October 1st).

Can I tour the school?

Yes! I would love to meet you and show you the space! Email me at stewartlittledayschool@gmail.com to setup a school visit.

How many adults will be working with my child?

Aside from community visitors, I will be the sole caretaker for your children. I am considering hiring a part time assistant for school year 2023-23, I will keep you updated on this!

Do you have part-time enrollment options?

We have very limited part-time spots - check our "Current Openings" page for updates on openings.

Do you offer aftercare?

Aftercare may be available upon request for additional charges.

Do you only accept pre-k age children?

No, we will accept younger children as well, but the number and age will vary based upon openings and ratios.

How many children are in your program?

In order to provide the highest care and education for your children, our maximum capacity is 7 children.

Does my child have to be potty-trained?

We do not require children to be potty-trained, but we ask that you collaborate with us through the potty-training process.

Do you have any pets?

There are two sweet cats that live in the house - both are up-to-date on their shots!

Do the children take naps?

We have a 2 hour nap/rest time each day.

How much time do you all spend outside?

Unless the weather is dangerous, we will go outside every day - the amount of time we spend outside each day is weather-dependent. When the weather is ideal, we will spend 90% of the day outside in our outdoor classroom. If it is extremely cold or hot, we will spend shorter periods of time outside.

What curriculum do you use?

We do not use one specific curriculum, rather we implement a combination. Over the years, our founder has worked with multiple curriculums and pulls best practices from each. Additionally, we don't believe in tying ourselves directly to one; rather, we want to follow the interests of the children.

Do you have snow days?

We will not close for inclement weather seeing as some families may still have to work.

If my child is sick, do I get a refund?

Our tuition is a set monthly rate regardless of the number of days your child is at school.

Do you allow families to come and visit during the school day?

Yes, of course!
