Our 3 year old classrooms are not set-up for diaper changing. We know that accidents occur. We treat each incident with understanding and compassion and partner with parents to advance and suppot your potty training process. If your child has a BM accident, we will contact you to come to school to change your child into clean clothes. If the child has repeated frequent accidents, we may ask you to keep them out of school to complete potty training at home. When they are ready we will welcome them back with special care to support their potty training success.
We understand the demands on families, and strive to be realistic in our expectations. We welcome parent involvement and leadership! Our only requirement is that each family work two shifts at each consignment sale and other major fundraisers that support school improvement. We also welcome each family's involvement on one YCS Committee.You will be asked about your interest in volunteering in your child’s class at our Meet and Greet days in August.
Once your child is in a 3 year old class and potty trained, parents can choose Playgroup enrichment classes for their child which end at 2:00 p.m. Different enrichment opportunities provided by outside companies are offered each year to provide one stop shopping for our families. A one time Playgroup participation fee of $35.00 is payable to OGYCS. All other fees are paid directly to the vendors.
All children attending must have a current State of Georgia #3231 Immunization Form or medical/ religious exemption form on file in our office by the beginning of school. All childcare programs are audited by the Health Department annually and any child who does not have a current #3231 on file will not be allowed to attend and risk the chance of losing their placement.
