Yes, we require that children be potty trained. We understand that potty training is a process and will support children with this process.
Carillon is committed to a “positive discipline” policy. Positive discipline encourages self-respect, self-discipline, cooperation, and problem solving skills. We encourage problem solving by using words.
While the majority of Carillon students attend Ormondale, Carillon students also attend public and private Kindergartens in Redwood City, Palo Alto, Menlo Park and Woodside. Every year we have students accepted to a number of private schools, including Sacred Heart, Philip Brooks and Nativity.
Birthdays are special days for children. Parents are invited to bring a healthy treat to share at snack time and may also join us at the end of the day to read their child’s favorite book. Parents are encouraged to gift a book to the school in honor of their child’s birthday.
Thanksgiving Family Potluck, Christmas Sing a Long, Mother’s Day, and Father’s day celebrations include families and caregivers. Other holiday parties are generally class-only celebrations.
If your child has an allergy, Carillon staff will work with you to comply with your child’s medical plan.
Our school is a nut free environment.
Volunteering opportunities for parents and caregivers are available during class parties, field trips, cooking, and special projects.
Carillon recognizes that families are very busy and has no volunteering requirement.
Lunch Bunch is an optional after school lunch program for Honeybees. Lunch- Bunchers enjoy eating lunch and playing together as a group between 12-1pm.
Parents may sign their child up for Lunch Bunch each day at drop-off and provide their child’s lunch. The cost is $12.00 a day. Families are invoiced for Lunch Bunch at the end of each month.
As an Episcopal Preschool, Carillon has a tradition of participating in Chapel. Chapel is lead by the Rector of Christ Church or the Youth and Family Director, and is held once a week.
The children gather in the Church to listen to stories, sing songs, and discuss a variety of religious traditions. They learn the ritual of going to chapel which includes ringing a bell and lighting a candle.
There is no religious instruction in the classroom. Our school celebrates the diverse religious backgrounds of all of our families.
At the discretion of the Director and staff, Carillon Preschool can accept children who just missed the age cutoff. If parents feel their child is developmentally ready for our program, an assessment will be required.
