Pre-school Minds Day Care Center is open Monday through Friday from 7:00am to 6:00pm

Your child’s classroom schedule is placed on the wall for all to view. We do our best to maintain flexibility within the schedule to make sure we are following the child ‘lead and accommodating their needs. Each individual classroom has an area where the schedule, lesson plans, and any changes that will be made to the routine or environment are posted. Please note when your child will be doing certain activities. This will enable you to talk with your child regarding what they did at school.

Parents must bring children all the way into their classrooms and acknowledge a staff member upon arrival and pickup.

Only those individuals listed as authorized pick-ups are allowed to pick up your child (this person may be asked to show ID.) In order for your child to be released to a person other than parent/legal guardian or authorized pick-up, permission must be given to the office in writing. Verbal permission is not enough but, we can accept e-mails.
