Summer Pre-K and Kindergarten Camps

Come and enjoy a wide range of fun and educations activities with our summer preschool and Kindergarten program!  It's the same ultra qualified staff as our regular preschool and Kindergarten program.  Your child will rotate through 6 or more different activity units each day, such as art, sensory play, story time, music, math or science activities, imaginative games, guided play and much more! Even better, our flexible "pick your days" registration allows you to plan around your summer events and activities. 

AGES AND CLASSES

The Summer program is for students with a minimum age of 2 as of Sept 30, 2015, up through age 6 for students who will be entering K in the fall. There is a separate class for students who will be entering grades 1-3 in the fall, please click here for details. 


There is a maximum of 24 students per day. Each day, the students will be divided into 3 separate groups dependent upon the day's activities. Students will be grouped with other children of similar age and skill level.   Each group will have their own classroom as well as their own certified teacher, and there are additional classroom assistants.

POLICIES

Absence and Make-Up Policy

It is an unfortunate fact everyone is occasionally sick. It is courteous to call and let us know, with as much advance notice as possible, of any absence due to illness. We ask that ill students remain home to avoid spreading the illness to other students and teachers. Children need to be without a fever for 24 hour to return to class. Children who are vomiting should not have vomited in the last 24 hours.  Due to the small class size and limited spaces available, we regret that we cannot offer make-up classes for the summer session.  


Schedule Changes  

There are NO REFUNDS for any reason once you have registered for a class.  If your schedule changes, we are happy to move you to different class if there is space available.   Due to the popularity of the preschool program, we must have 2 WEEKS NOTICE to make class changes.   We are not able to reschedule cancellations or absences with less than 2 weeks notice.


Snack / Lunch

Parents are asked to pack a lunch and a snack for their child. We may occasionally have other snacks as part of our curriculum, so be sure to let us know of any food allergies. Please also pack a spill-proof cup with a drink for your child as we do not have a water fountain. We ask that all drinks be in a spill-proof cup to avoid accidents. All cups should be labeled with your child’s name. 

When packing lunch, please make sure it is "kid friendly" - have items pre-cut and items such as oranges already peeled (please do not pack whole oranges as children cannot peel these themselves.)   Also, please do not pack items such as shredded cheese, rice, or sunflower seeds that are very messy for your child to eat and make a big mess on the floor.


Potty Training

We do not require that children be potty trained to enroll. We will take regularly scheduled potty breaks during the day to help your child with potty training.   Parents are asked to provide a diaper bag with diapers and wipes for children who are not potty trained, and to  make sure they have a fresh diaper when they arrive.


Supplies

Please provide an extra change of clothing (or two!) to have on hand in case of spills or accidents.  Be sure to include extra underwear for children who are potty training.  We do lots of messy art projects, so please wear OLD CLOTHES to class!  We do not use smocks when painting.


Pick-Up / Drop Off:

Please bring your child to the classroom and sign in when dropping off, and let us know on the sign-in sheet if a different person will be picking them up. You will need to pick up your child from the classroom and sign out at the end of class. Parents may also choose to drive up in the lane at the front of the facility and we will walk your child to and from  your car.  We will not release children to unauthorized individuals.


Late Pick Up:

PICK UP FOR SUMMER PREK is between 12:45 and 1:00 pm.  Please arrive in this window to pick up your child.  A late pick up fee of $25 will be charged to the card on file for parents arriving after 1:00 pm.  All parents must  clear the classroom by 1:00 as our afternoon session will be arriving.    


E-mail:

Please be certain that a valid e-mail address is included with your registration, and that you selected to "send e-mails to family."  E-mail is used for important class updates.


Severe Weather:

In the event of severe weather or hurricane evacuation, we will close based on FISD.    An e-mail will be sent out in the event of a weather related cancellation, you may also check our Facebook page for updates  Such cancellations are considered “acts of God. ”  There will be no refunds, but a credit that can be used towards other classes at Friendswood Music & More will be placed on your account for any "act of God"  cancellation.


Last Minute Registration

You are welcome to register online at anytime prior to class starting.  The online registration system has the most up to date info on classes.   As long as there are spaces available you may register for the class.   If the class is full you may register for a waitlist, but that does not guarantee availability.  Please make sure you are officially registered for class before arriving, students who are not on the official class schedule may be turned away due to class size.
