Parent Communication

Parent communication is key to a successful preschool program. Here at Playtime Preschool, we want our families to feel involved in our setting and incorporate multiple communication avenues to encourage involvement. First, we are an open and friendly environment where parents and teachers can openly communicate in the mornings and afternoons during drop-off and pick-up times. We love getting to know our preschool students and their families! In addition, we provide each family a monthly packet which includes a newsletter, monthly calendar with curriculum activities, scholastic order form, and family homework assignment.

Lastly, we have recently implemented the BrightWheel platform into our program. This app allows our teachers to communicate with parents on a daily basis! Throughout the day, we are able to send photos, videos, notes, reports, and messages to you pertaining to your child’s day. We also use this program as our electronic check-in/check-out system and our tuition payment program. This platform allows parents the opportunity to truly participate in their child’s day in a memorable and meaningful way.


Frequently Asked Questions

Does my child need to come from opening to closing or can I drop him/her off at any time?

You can certainly bring your child whenever you need throughout the day.  Most children arrive by 9am and leave by 5pm.  You are free to bring your child at your convenience.  The weekly tuition fee covers a maximum of 10 hours of care per day.


What do you mean by school-age children?

We provide before and after school care for children in elementary school.  We are a great alternative to on-site school care because we are reasonably priced and are available to care for your child during those long school breaks.


Are there any discounts available?

Due to our low prices, we do not offer sibling discounts or vacation discounts.  However, we do accept state-run childcare payment programs for low income families such as MAXIMUS, CDA, and YMCA.


Do you serve meals?

Yes, we serve breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack.  We are also registered with the California Nutrition Program.


How many infants do you care for?

We are licensed to care for up to 3 infants at a time.  An infant in childcare is considered a child under the age of 2.  However, we prefer to care for only 1 newborn at a time to make sure that little baby gets all the love and attention he/she needs.


What is your student / teacher ratio?

When all students are on site, the student/teacher ratio is 1:7.  However, when our school age children are in school during the day, the ratio becomes 1:6.


Do you celebrate birthdays and holidays?

Certainly!  We can celebrate birthdays and holidays to make your child’s early years extra enjoyable.  Parents are welcome to bring cakes or cupcakes on their child’s special day and we make sure to do our part by decorating for the party and showering the birthday boy/girl with special birthday wishes!


When is the best time to come and visit your school?

Due to COVID-19, we no longer offer tours during school hours.  Instead, we offer in-person tours after-hours during the week. If you would like to take a tour of our school and meet our staff, please call us at (619) 422-1831 to set up an appointment.
