Frequently Asked Questions About the Waitlist

You have a long waiting list. Is it worthwhile to put my child's name on it?
Our waiting list is longest for the three year old program, because this is the time when parents typically want to start their children in a program. We can accomodate about 35 toddlers, 50 three year olds, and about 60 four year olds. We fill spots from the waitlist throughout the year whenever we have a drop. It is worthwhile to put your child's name on the waiting list.
What if I don't live in the BPS school district yet, but I'm planning on moving?
BPS district residents have first priority to register in our program. After May 1 we will open up registration to the public. In order to get on our waitlist, regardless of residency, you must provide us with a picture I.D. that shows your address and the child's birth certificate. We will call district residents on our list first.
How long will my child remain on the waiting list?
Your child will remain on the waiting list until he/she is offered a spot or until he/she is eligible to attend kindergarten. We fill spots throughout the year, as they become available.

á- Toddlers must be 18 months by September 1

Will my child be able to move from the toddler program to the three year old program when he/she turns 3 in the middle of the year?
No. All the toddlers will remain in the toddler program until the end of the program year in June. We transition children on the first day of school in September.

What if I just want my child to attend 2 days a week or for the morning only?
Our program is a minimum of 3 full days from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm each week. Some parents choose to bring their children 2 days only and/or pick them up at noon. This is your choice, however, you will be billed for three full days.

What if I need a longer day for my child and a summer program?
You may choose a 9:00 am - 3:30 pm day, a 9 hour day, or an 11 hour day. We offer a summer program for families attending the current school year.

The office manager already showed me around, why do I have to have another tour with the director when my child's name gets to the top of the waiting list?
The director will share aspects of the program's curriculum, instructional strategies, assessment procedures, daily routine, parent communication, and resources.

How long do I have after my tour to make up myámind?
You will have two business days to decide if you would like to enroll. If we do not hear from you by that time we will assume that you do not want the spot and your child's name will go to the bottom of the waiting list. We will offer the spot to the next person on the waiting list. If you do want the spot you will need to complete the registration form and pay a $200.00 non-refundable registration fee.

How can I find out more information about the center before my tour with the director?
Continue looking through our website or call 248-203-5803 for more information.áIn addition, go to www.naeyc.org to learn more about our national accreditation standards.

Do you have kindergarten here?

My child has been at home with me or a nanny up until this point. I'm worried about him/her crying when I leave. How will you handle that?
Our staff expects children to experience separation anxiety when they first switch from home to a group setting. We will work through this phase with you and your child. Our primary goal is to help your child feel safe and secure in a setting outside of his/her home.

My child doesn't take a nap.
Our program is licensed by the State of Michigan. The rules and regulations governing licensed programs require that all children younger than school age take a rest if they are in care for more than five continuous hours each day. A rest is defined as lying down during a quiet time on a cot and allowing a child to fall asleep.

What food is provided?
The center provides 3 snacks, one at 10:00 am, one at 3:00 pm, and one at 4:45 pm. The snack consists of something healthy to eat and either milk or water to drink. Parents bring a lunch each day. We provide a simple breakfast for children who arrive before 8:30 am. This consists of cereal and milk.

Does my child need to be potty trained in order to enroll?
No. We work with toddlers and their families as they show signs of being ready. We would like our three year olds to be potty trained but it is not a requirement. Typically, all of the four year olds are potty trained.
