Preschools are designed to educate children who are 3 to 5 years of age and not yet old enough to enter into the public school system. Although specific rules and regulations will vary from one preschool program to another, some variation of the following will be consistent across the board.


Parents must drop off and pick up their children in accordance with the schedule agreed upon by the parents and the preschool program. Most facilities will charge a fee or even expel a child if he is left at the school for longer than his contract allows.


Parents must pay their tuition on time and in the amount agreed upon in the child's contract in order to maintain their child's spot in the preschool program.


Every well-run preschool has a clear and effective discipline policy. Whether the centre uses time outs, redirection or some other consequence, the policy will not allow for either verbal or physical abuse of a child.

Classroom Rules

Preschools have certain classroom rules that must be followed by all students. Rules may include no hitting, biting or rough play, as well as rules about listening to teachers, using inside voices and sharing with other students.


Preschools require children to have routine doctor visits and to receive necessary vaccines in order to be accepted into and remain in the program. Preschools also require a certain level of health for daily attendance.
