In our 17-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. 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.
Because of released pandemic regulations, we come back to regime with no serious restrictions. In case of a positive case in the class, we may apply a short-term regulation on minimalizing of mixing children between the sections. We keep the strict morning filter. We don´t count with facemasks for children (however we will react to the actual epidemiological situation and plans may change). For more details, please, check pandemic plan 2022/2023.
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. The kindergarten is open from 7:00-18:00. What times are the most important? Keep the timing of your morning arrivals. We start our program in classrooms at 8:30 which means that best time to come is 8:30 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 lunch, before/after nap, etc.)
ARRIVAL OF CHILD to KG
Please, arrange your arrival to kindergarten by 8:30. We have separate entrances – please, check the information and instructions for your class. Every child needs to pass the morning filter on the entrance. In case of any illness symptoms, you will be asked to approach a doctor!
For children in Y1 is their last pre-school year obligatory and should not be absent more than 5 days per month, unless he/she got the excuse.
PICKING UP CHILD from KG
In case somebody else is picking up your child form KG, please, let us know about it beforehand, make sure, you provide us with the “Declaration” and the copy of ID. When picking up your child from KG, 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
Parents obtain information via various communication channels:
IN PERSON: various information from us to you (how was the day) or from you to us (any important matters regarding your child)
WALLBOARDS/ DOOR: wide range information, e. g. schedules, announcements, plans, children´s displays, daily reports etc.
INFO NEWS: information about planned activities (trips/ events) in forthcoming week; sent electronically to your e-mail; weekly
NEWSLETTER: information about kindergarten life, sent electronically, monthly
PARENTS LETTERS: printed document about class life and well-being (photo + text), monthly
REPORTS: individualized detailed information on child´s development and wellbeing, printed version (just ENG), semesterly
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 get on the same page. If we have something at you – we will approach 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.
This year we plan the regular meetings about the child´s development and wellbeing in kindergarten, as usually. In Autumn we shall have the contact meeting, in Winter and before Summer we plan to arrange the mid-term and end-term meetings. If possible, we keep the meetings preventively outdoors. In case, you have an issue to solve, teacher may arrange with you an additional consultation meeting, if necessary.
CLOTHES in KG
Please, make sure to bring your child APPROPRIATE CLOTHES considering event, weather, or season. Of course, in autumn and spring you need to have rain boots and raincoat; 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, bring your child also some spare clothes, so we can keep them in the locker and use in a case of accidents. Please, sign all your clothes properly for easier identification. 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. Slippers should be safe, firm, and comfortable.
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
TRAVELLING TOY: Children in adaptation process may bring their “soft toy friend” from home to help with adaptation.
SLEEPING TOY: Children are allowed bringing the soft toys from home for the nap time. Sleeping toy stays in the toy box during the day. Please do not bring any other toys (soft toys only) to the kindergarten, it only causes troubles.
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 please discuss the celebration in advance with the class teachers. Please, let us know if you want to bring the cake. Your personal contribution by bringing some small surprises is FULLY VOLUNTARY. We highly recommend bringing small toys (e.g. stickers, balloons, toys, etc.) rather than candies.
