Frequently Asked Questions
When are classes?
Classes are held Monday - Friday from 9:30am-12:30pm. We are open September - May, and follow the Williamsburg Public School calendar during the school year.
What if my child has never been in a group care setting before?
No problem! Our teachers work very hard to make each child comfortable in our space. We help both children and parents through that transition to make this a fun and enjoyable time for both!
Do you offer financial assistance?
We do offer partial scholarships! Our hope is that any family that needs this service can participate in our program.
Do I have to come every day?
No! Parents choose a schedule that works for them. You can register for as many days as you would like!
What will my child learn?
Our lessons each week are based around the Bible. Each week will have a theme that reflects a specific Biblical story. Our goal is to teach three main ideas: God made me, God loves me, and God has a plan for me! We believe that children learn best through play. We offer opportunities for them to explore in a safe environment, learn social skills, and begin to control their executive functions. This gives them the building blocks for all learning as they grow! In our older classes, we utilize the Virginia Kindergarten Readiness Program with a focus on hands-on and interactive learning, while utilizing our small class sizes to capitalize on individual interests.
What is the teacher to child ratio?
At Kid's Morning Out, we maintain a 1:4 ratio in our Sprouts and Seedlings classrooms. We have 2 teachers per classroom, and no more than 8 students at a time. In our Sapling class, we maintain a 1:5 ratio. We have 2 teachers and no more than 10 students. In our Sycamores, we have no more than 12 students with 2 teachers, or a 1:6 ratio. We always have at least 2 teachers present, no matter how many children are in attendance.
My child is not potty-trained. Is that a problem?
Absolutely not! We don't require any of our classes to be potty-trained. Did you know that only 22% of children are potty-trained by 2.5 years old, and only 88% by 3.5 years? Developmentally, this happens at different times for every child. Ready to start the process? We can help! Let us know what you're doing at home and we will do our best to do the same here!
