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.

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.

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.

While masks are no longer required in indoor public spaces, including ELCC facilities, an individual may choose to wear a mask based on their personal risk assessment or preference.

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.
