What days of the week do you offer classes?

For PreK, there is the choice of Monday through Friday AM class, Monday through Friday PM class or a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday option.




Do you follow the Hamilton City Schools academic calendar?


We are closed during typical holidays and breaks. We also are closed the week of Memorial Day and the week before Labor Day.




What is your inclement weather policy?


During a two hour delay, we will not have morning Extended Care. If Hamilton City Schools are closed for inclement weather, we are also typically closed.

Two hour delays and Schools closings are communicated through our website, Facebook, email and on channel 9 and 12 under Colonial Schools.




Does my child need to be toilet trained?


Yes. This is a requirement to attend any of our programs.




Who gets first-priority with registration?


Registration is first-come first serve, with returning families getting the opportunity to register first. If we have a waiting list, we accept families according to the date on the application and when their fee has been paid. The fee is refunded if the family is not accepted.
