Children must be at least three years old by August 1st and reside within the Liberty School District and/or be the biological or legally adopted child of a Liberty School District employee. Child must be suited to be cared for, interacted with and taught by high school students and independently potty-trained (without assistance, and/or guidance, the child recognizes the need to eliminate- when awake and/or asleep, appropriately does so, and is able to change his or her clothes, if or when necessary). Participants with medical needs may not be accepted if any health care is (or could be) required as part of the participant’s day in the program. Providing care or health services for participants with medical needs is not part of the curriculum of this class and providing such care and services would fundamentally alter the nature of this program.
During the enrollment period, or when an opening becomes available, we will look at the existing class makeup and fill the opening(s) in a way that allows for a range of ages and a balance of boys and girls. At times we also strive to maximize diversity in terms of family income and/or structure, and race and ethnicity. We use this enrollment system to ensure that the center is representative of the community at large, and that our students are exposed to a variety of children and families.
Occasionally, a space will open up during the middle of a semester when a family leaves the program. We highly encourage you to apply for enrollment. When a child’s application is accepted, the staff will use the following procedures to contact a family about the opening:
• We will email the parent(s)/guardian(s) using the e-mail addresses given on the application forms.
