    Parent Handbook 



    The foundation of School's Out is a belief that all students should be given the opportunity to learn, develop, create, and explore in an environment that is safe, nurturing, and fosters the love of learning every day.


    Collaborative Spirit

    School's Out partners with teachers and administrators to create quality early education opportunities for all students ages 3-5 that best prepare them for kindergarten and life-long success. Most students enrolled in our programs receive free preschool services from the partnering school for a minimum of 10 hours a week. During the time outside of the preschool component, the learning continues as School's Out works in conjunction with the preschool teachers and school district to ensure learning targets are met and kindergarten preparedness to all of our students is achieved.


    Familiarity and Confidence

    Creating familiarity for your child and his/her school at an early age is a tremendous benefit School's Out is able to provide to your child.  Knowing the structure and routine of the school day while fostering friendships with classmates greatly reduces anxiety and allows the students to seamlessly transition into kindergarten when the time arrives. 



    School's Out Early Education is a full-day, full-year program based in your son or daughter’s elementary school. Our hours of operation are 7:30-5:30 daily with school vacations and summer scheduling as an integrated component to our program (the preschool component will not be an option during vacation and summer programming).
