Staff Retention is a cornerstone of the Grandma's House philosophy. We have staff who have been with us over 20 years! Through incentives, tuition reimbursement, and annual raises, Grandma's House continually strives to improve staff retention and will continue to do as much as possible to recruit, train, and retain qualified teachers.
Toys are sanitized daily with a chlorine bleach solution to curb the spread of germs. Eating surfaces are washed and sanitized before and after each use.
Of course! The children all eat lunch together with their teacher. Lunch is served family-style, in serving bowls. The children serve themselves and pass the bowl to their friend. Children then clear their places when they are finished, scraping their plates, stacking plates and milk cups, and throwing away their napkins.
Children under the age of two are cared for on individual schedules so sleeping times in those classrooms vary according to the needs of the children. However, after a busy morning, the older children settle down for naps shortly after they eat lunch. Teachers play quiet music, rub backs, and VOILA-everyone is fast asleep!
Tuition is due in advance of attendance. Grandma's House is not setup to “bill” parents. You may pay weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly; whatever is most convenient for your family.
Unfortunately not. In order to ensure continuity in the program, children enrolled in the Kindergarten program are required to attend four days per week, Monday through Thursday. Friday is an enrichment day for children attending five days per week. Children may attend a half-day (e.g. 8:00 a.m. – noon), if preferred.
