The following policies are detailed below.


Our 3’s and ‘4s Licensed Preschool follow the guidelines established in the Best Practices Licensing Manual for Early Learning and Child Care Centres


At Tuxedo Community Centre Preschool, we strive to provide a safe, caring, learning environment for children, staff and families. We believe in equality and respect diversity. Please take a moment to review our Code of Conduct that applies to all individuals involved in the Preschool.


This document is designed for Parents to read a bit about how the Educators at Tuxedo Preschool design the Preschool program.  It includes a typical daily schedule and descriptions of the way the program fosters strong interactions and relationships between children and with their Educators.


The goal of the Preschool is to be inclusive in providing developmentally appropriate group experiences for all children in a secure, stimulating, play based environment.

  • Siblings in the Classroom

The Tuxedo Preschool 3s and 4s program is licensed for the children registered in the program and therefore we cannot allow siblings in the classroom on parent volunteer days.  Please make child care arrangements for siblings. 


  • Allergy Policy

    • Read all labels of purchased products and do not bring anything in to the pre-school that may contain peanuts&/nut products of any type. 

    • Leave all items in their original packaging. Any pre-packaged food that could potentially contain an allergen, and is brought in packaging other than original, will not be served. 

    • No bulk bin products are permitted.

  • Hot Beverage/Coffee Policy

    • No coffee inside the Preschool rooms – upstairs or downstairs.

    • No spill proof mugs or thermos’ are allowed in either classroom during classroom time.

  • Cell Phones during Volunteer helper day

    • Do not use your cell phones when volunteering in our classroom, no texting, calls or pictures as examples

    • Cell phones should be left in a purse or pocket until class time has ended. 

    • If you need to check your phone during class, please remove yourself from the playroom. 

  • Children’s Illness/Exclusion Policy & Guidelines
    Children who are too sick to participate in the program should not attend the pre-school.  The following is a guideline that you can use to help you decide when to keep your child at home.  The staff will also use the same guidelines in determining when a parent should be called and asked to pick their child up. 

    • Colds:  If your child has a cold, is listless, congested, stuffed up/runny nose, he/she may feel more comfortable staying at home.

    • Diarrhea:  If your child has had two incidents of watery stools in a short period of time please keep him/her home to monitor.  Diarrhea can spread quickly among young children and may be the start of something more. If diarrhea begins at preschool the parent will be called.

    • Vomiting:  If your child is vomiting during the night or in the morning, please keep him/her home.  If vomiting begins at preschool the parent will be called.

    • Fever:  If your child has a fever he/she should not be in attendance. If your child develops a fever while in attendance (digital thermometer reading) the parent will be called to pick up.  If the parent cannot be reached, staff members may administer a dose of Children’s Tylenol to help the child feel more comfortable while waiting to reach the parent.  If you have any concerns with teachers administering Tylenol to your child please be sure to inform us.   

    • Flu-like symptoms:  If your child has a fever with a cough and the fever subsides quickly but the cough remains, please keep the child home for a few days to ensure the fever doesn’t return or the symptoms escalate.  Is it Flu?














Other Common childhood illnesses:  Ear Infections, skin rashes, Pink Eye or Strep Throat require attention from a Doctor.  Once your child has been on medication for at least 24 hours, they can return to the preschool.  Please notify the preschool if your child is absent due to illness.   No refunds will be allowed for illness unless it is of such serious nature that the child is forced to withdraw from the program.


  • Behavior Management Policy:  Discipline problems are handled in a quiet, reassuring manner, with positive reinforcement. More difficult situations are resolved by removing the child from the group and explaining quietly why the type of behavior is unacceptable. The child is welcomed back to the group after he/she has had time to reflect on his/her behavior. Persistent behavior problems are brought to the attention of the parents so that both parents and staff are able to discuss ways to solve the problem.  Behavior management strategies will be adapted to meet the developmental needs of each child and will take into consideration a child’s inclusion support needs.  The daily schedule is flexible, inclusive of children with additional support needs, and takes into consideration the individual developmental needs of the children.  We do not permit, practice or inflict any form of physical punishment or verbal or emotional abuse upon, or the denial of physical necessities, to any child in attendance.
