In our 10-year experience of running the KG we’ve learnt that some rules are not only good and effective but more than essential. To create secure and understandable environment for children we respect and follow these rules.
HEALTH in KG
Please, beware of the health condition of your child and don’t bring him/her to the KG sick. If any symptoms of an illness are visible in the morning, we have a right to refuse your child to join in the daily activities. Also, if any symptoms appear during the day at the KG (e.g. cough, thick buggers, fever, vomiting, diarrhoea, etc.), we will contact you and ask to pick up your child immediately. After longer and serious illness and in case of questionable symptoms, we always ask for the doctor´s confirmation. The school is not eligible to serve any kind of medication (syrup, drops, or pills), please, don´t ask for it. The exceptions must be consulted with a director/school manager.
TIMING in KG
Timing is one of the most IMPORTANT factors of successful and easy-going well being in the KG. Please, keep the timing, check your class schedule, watch the notes. And what times are the most important? Keep the timing of your morning arrivals. We start our program at 9:00 which means that best time to come is 8:45 latest. Recommended pick-up time is 16.30-17:30, as we finish our organized program at 16:00. When there is a trip, please, be punctual or let us know about your delay or absence. Also, let us know about any irregular arrivals or departures during the day (after 18:00, after lunch, before/after nap, etc.)
PICKING UP CHILD from KG
In case somebody else is picking up your child, please, let us know about it beforehand (the best in the morning or later by SMS/ call). if the person is going to pick your child regularly, please, provide us with the name and copy of ID. Eventually, add this person to the list of authorised persons to pick up your child without the previous notice.
Please, always check the „Ringing Schedule “on the doors, so you can find the class of your child easily and at the same time you don´t disturb the other classes.
KEEP YOURSELF INFORMED
We use various info-channels to get in touch with you and share information about our school life.
- daily personal info
- daily reports (info about eating & sleeping on wallboards)
- weekly plans (Info about actual educational focuses on wallboards)
- weekly reporting (Info about previous educational activities on wallboards)
- INFO NEWS / Locker notes (Info about forthcoming plans and events via e-mail and notes on the lockers)
- newsletter (info about life in our KG in all locations by e-mail and on our web page www.funiversity.sk )
- parent´s letters (Info and photo about life in the class in printed version)
- mid-term & end-term parent´s meetings (Info about actual child´s profile and progress, more often upon request)
Please, check regularly your e-mails, wallboards, your child’s locker as well as our web page. At the same time, we would like to ask you to inform us about all the important matters regarding your child, even if in your opinion it is very trivial. Thank you for great cooperation in advance.
We believe that open and straight communication is one of the most important factors of smooth and successful cooperation. And thus, if you have anything – question, idea, comment – bring them all, let us know. If we understand you, we can assist you.
PARKING in KG
We have our own parking boxes which you can take an advantage of during dropping or picking up your child in KG. Please, be respectful to others and do not use our parking place for parking over the day. The cars we don´t know can be town away.
PARENTS in KG
We try to create clean and safe environment for your child. When entering the classroom, please always wait for the teacher. Do not forget to put the shoe covers on or simply take your shoes off, so floor and carpets are kept clean. Please, do not browse over the KG facility without an employee guide. When you come to pick your child up, please do not confuse him/her by staying too long (more than 30minutes) as Kindergarten is basically a place where kids need to respect specific class and school rules that might partially differ from those you have at home. Children can easily get confused by who they should respect – teachers or parents.
GUIDANCE – PERSPECTIVE - CONTROL
Please, don´t leave your child alone but guide him/ her when staying in KG facility. After arrival to KG, pass your child physically to the hands of the teacher, don´t send him through the whole KG alone. When ringing to the upper classes, please, wait for the teacher to come, don´t leave your child in changing room alone. But also vice versa. Don´t pick up your child secretly without saying anything to teacher.
CLOTHES in KG
Please, make sure to bring your child appropriate clothes considering an event, weather or season. If you are worried your child might get dirty while our activities or in the garden, keep some set of clothes in his/her locker – the ones, you won’t regret „destroying“. Please, bring your child also some spare clothes, so we can keep them in the locker and use in a case of accidents. Of course, consider the actual season, so in autumn and spring you need to have rain boots and rain coat; in winter you need to have waterproof, warm snow pants and jacket, hat, scarf and gloves and proper boots; in summer you need a cap as a sunstroke prevention. Please, sign all your clothes properly as it may happen that two children have the same piece of clothing. Please, give your child clothes which are comfortable, and he/she can move in them freely. Kindergarten is a place, where child gets dirty, please, count with it.
PERSONAL BELONGINGS in KG
Please, don´t allow your child to bring to the Kindergarten anything precious, expensive or whatever you don´t want to be lost (earrings, expensive toys, phone, iPad, money). These things should not be kept in the child´s lockers. If they are, the KG does not take any responsibility for their loss or destruction. Special belongings should be announced to teacher in advance and signed properly (e.g. creams, toothpastes, books).
TRAVELLING TOYS in KG
We allow your child to bring their favourite toy to the classroom. These so-called “travelling toys” are kept in the special “toy box” in the classroom and should be taken home regularly (the best always in the afternoon). Children can play with the toys from home after asking the teacher. No travelling toys can be taken to the garden. The exception are the children in adaptation who can take their “family friend” anywhere they want
FOOD in KG
Candies & own food from home is in our KG forbidden. Please, when you bring food from home to your child when picking him/her up, don´t offer your food to other children as you never know which child is allergic and how serious it can be.
CELEBRATIONS in KG
When celebrating Birthday/Nameday in the Kindergarten please discuss the celebration in advance with the class teachers. Kindergarten provides cakes and/or presents for these occasions (please, let us know if you prefer to arrange the cake by yourself in advance). Your personal contribution (bringing some small surprises) is FULLY VOLUNTARY. We highly recommend bringing small toys (e.g. stickers, balloons, toys, etc.) rather than candies.
