Preschool at Horseshoe

Welcome to the PRESCHOOL DISCOVERY ZONE journey!

Preschool life is always an adventure. Our volunteer staff and our paid care givers are dedicated to providing a safe and happy environment in which your preschooler may learn and grow. We believe in teaching and serving your preschool child. Thank you for visiting the PRESCHOOL DISCOVERY ZONE website. Hopefully, you will quickly discover that preschoolers are some of my favorite people! I love preschoolers and I want to get to know your preschooler. As we partner to lead these little ones in their knowledge of Jesus Christ and His love for them we have an exciting adventure ahead of us. When Jesus said to His disciples, “Let the little children come to me,” He set the example for us.

 

 

Check-in Procedure/Parent Pager System

Guests check in at the Preschool Wing Welcome Desk to have information entered into the system.

Notify attendant of any allergies, which will be recorded.

Any adult allowed to pick up the child must be entered into the system. No one under the age of fifteen is allowed to drop off or pick up a child.

Members check in at a kiosk.

The printed identification sticker goes on the back of your preschooler’s clothing. The parent keeps a security sticker and a pager.

 

Preschool Wellness Policy

Preschoolers who show signs of illness, such as high temperature, should be kept at home. According to the Committee on Control of Infectious Diseases of the American Academy of Pediatrics, a child should not be taken from home when any of the following exists, or if they have had symptoms of the following within the previous 24 hours:

  • Fever
  • Vomiting and/or diarrhea
  • Any symptoms of usual childhood diseases such as
    scarlet ferver
    measles
    mumps
    chickenpox
    whooping cough
  • Common cold–from the onset through one week
    symptoms include green or yellow nasal discharge
  • Croup
  • Any unexplained rash
  • Any skin infections (boils, ringworm, impetigo)
  • Pink eye or other infections
  • Thrush

Whenever there is a doubt, ask yourself, “Would I want another child with these symptoms to be with my child?” Our teachers will not give preschoolers medication. If necessary parents may return to the department to administer medication. If your child becomes ill while in Preschool Discovery Zone, you will be notified immediately to come for your child.

 

Parent Assistant Rotation

Our church has adopted the policy that all parents/guardians of preschoolers will serve in a preschool class once per month during one Sunday School/service time.  Working together, we can provide the best nurturing and learning environment possible to minister to our children. Once you have been involved with our church at least six months, please don’t wait for someone to call you. We need YOU! Let us know if you have not been contacted.

Screening Procedure

We require that all teachers, staff, and volunteers who work with minors (a minor is defined as any child under 18 years of age) go through a screening process that includes an application form, a comprehensive background check, and Safe Church Training. You may e-mail the preschool director for information about the next Safe Church Orientation.
