FAQS

  • My child will not be 3 years old at the start of the school year. Does he/she have to wait?

    Posted by:

    No! Children simply need to be 3 years old before they attend. If there are openings, we can enroll your child at any time of the year. For enrollment in the current school year, you may submit an application up to three months before your child's third birthday.

  • As a peer, will my child get the attention he or she needs?

    Posted by:

    Our highly qualified teachers and specialists, together with paraeducators (classroom assistants), work to meet the individual needs of each child. Our low ratio of adults to children and carefully designed classroom routines and activities ensure that a range of learners can get what they need to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. We are implementing the new Kansas Early Learning Standards, which help us link early childhood skills to those that will be needed for kindergarten success.

  • My child doesn't meet the criteria for peer enrollment. What do I do now?

    Posted by:

    Our criteria for peer enrollment is in place to ensure that we can provide each child with the experiences and support necessary. If your child does not meet the criteria as a peer, we encourage you to find an appropriate community preschool experience. Two resources include The Family Conservancy or KC Kids Fun.

  • How will my child be assigned to a classroom?

    Posted by:

    We work to create groups of children who will move on to the same Blue Valley schools together. Families tell us that these friendships among children (and families) set the stage for better transitions to kindergarten. Students will be placed, to the greatest degree possible, at the building and in the classroom with other children from your neighborhood school.

  • I have a preference of A.M. or P.M. Why isn't there a spot for that on the application?

    Posted by:

    In order to provide developmentally appropriate experiences for all children, we enroll our younger children in the A.M. sections and our older children in the P.M. sections. We have found that this enables us to focus on particular skills including the development of friendships and early academic concepts that are specific to each age group. It also allows us to increase the level of challenge as children grow older.

    Posted by:

    We do maintain a wait list in the event that all spots are filled in a particular location. We have limited openings in all PM classes (4-year-olds who will be eligible for kindergarten next year) and AM classes (3 to 4-year-olds who will NOT turn 5 before Aug. 31) throughout the year. For more information call (913) 624-2900.
