When Is Enrollment?

Our online enrollment begins in January for our currently enrolled families. Open enrollment for new families begins in February. We accept new students throughout the year if there is space available and on a first come, first served basis. Children MUST be fully potty trained. Classes do fill up quickly. We have many returning students moving up to their next level class as well as siblings of students enrolling, therefore it is imperative to not delay in securing your child’s spot in our program.

Registration/Supply Fee

A non-refundable registration/supply fee for all classes is due at the time of registration to secure your child’s spot.


Tuition is based on an annual amount, divided into ten equal monthly payments, August through May.

What Is The Student/Teacher Ratio?

Our Student to Teacher Ratio is 8:1 or less. Your child will have their lead teacher and assistant teachers with them throughout the day.

How Do You Determine Which Child Is In Which Class?

At Sunnyside we place our students in classes with students of their same age range. Our class programs include our Preschool – ages 3 going on 4; Pre-K – ages 4 going on 5; and Jumpstart Kindergarten – turning 5 by December 31 or by teacher permission.

Do You Have Toilet Training Requirements?

To attend our Preschool Program, we ask that your child is fully toilet trained. This means your child is aware of when they need to go and can wipe/flush/wash. We will give reminders and encourage self-help skills with guidance. Please dress your child in clothing that they can fasten and unfasten themselves to encourage independence. Staff encourages “potty breaks” and accepts toileting accidents as normal in this age group. Staff will never single out or punish a child for a “potty accident”.

Do You Have An Immunization Policy?

To ensure that we have the most up to date medical information for your child, in case of an emergency, we do ask that you provide a copy of your child’s immunization records. This can be completed and brought to orientations prior to the start of the school year.

Do You Offer Lunch or Snacks?

Depending on which class your child is enrolled, please have them bring either a lunch or snack. See the Class Schedule page. Due to the prevalence and severity of food allergies, as a precaution, we ask that parents do not send in snacks or treats containing peanut butter or any type of nut or nut products.

My Child Has A Food Allergy, How Do You Address That?

When you fill out the registration form, we do ask that you notify us of any and all allergies as your child’s safety is a primary concern. We value the importance of including your child in times of celebration as well and preparing ahead allows the staff to do so seamlessly. We suggest providing an appropriate alternative snack/treat for your child with his/her name on them and we will keep those items specifically set aside for your child. 

How Do You Deal With Discipline In The Classroom?

Our primary rules include being safe, kind, and respectful to everyone at school. To encourage this, we use positive discipline guidance, redirection, and modeling of and teaching respectful communication skills.

Are There Pick Up And Drop Off Rules? Who Do I Inform If I've Arranged For Someone Else To Pick Up My Child?

Please drop off your child no earlier than 5 minutes before their class time begins and be prompt in picking your child up on time. There is a space on your enrollment form to list alternates to pick up your child. Should you need someone to pick up that is not on your list, we MUST be notified in writing with full name and contact information of that person.

What Should I Do If My Child Is Sick?

If you know your child will not be attending class, we do ask that you email us to notify your teacher so we can anticipate the absence. Should your child become ill while at school, you will be notified immediately.

When the flu season is upon us, please remember to keep your child home if they are not feeling well due to a virus or are exhibiting any flu symptoms. Children must be fever free, without any vomiting or diarrhea for 24 hours before returning to school. Please keep your child home if they have extreme fatigue, coughing or excessive runny nose. Children must be able to participate in our outdoor recess as all staff is outside with their class during that time.

How Will I Know If There Is A Snow/Inclement Weather Day?

School delays and closures are posted on our Sunnyside Preschool Facebook page and/or an email will be sent.

How Can I Keep Up With What's Going On In My Child's Class?

Each month you will receive a monthly Newsletter email with links to the annual and monthly calendars, policies and book orders. Your child will also decorate and take home a printed monthly calendar that will show information such as the letter of the week, when tuition and book orders are due and list special events and field trips.
