1) Are you licensed?
YES. While licensure requirements vary by state, you should ALWAYS make sure your child's preschool is licensed by the state. We are licensed through the CA Department of Child and Social Services. They make unannounced inspections of licensed facilities to ensure that the facility is clean, that children are properly supervised, and that no complaints have been lodged. This also means that all employees have passed background checks.
2) Can I drop in without calling ahead?
YES. It might not seem like an important question, but any hesitation from a preschool provider regarding parental drop-ins can be a red flag. If they act like being surprised is a bad thing, you have to wonder, what are they hiding? We encourage and welcome parental drop-ins anytime.
3) Are all employees current on their CPR and First Aid certification?
YES. In the event of an emergency you want to know that everyone on staff is up to date on their training. During a catastrophic event every second counts, especially if it’s your child who needs help. Each of our teachers has completes the First Aid and CPR training class every 2 years, as required by CA DCSS. We also have a firestation nearby.
4) Do you have a daily schedule?
