The UNMKC opens each day at 7:30 am. Daily schedules are posted in individual classrooms. The infants’ schedules will be more individualized than those in the other classrooms. Check with your child’s teacher about your classroom’s daily routine. Our traditional program ends at 5:30 pm each day. All classroom routines are predictable but flexible and allow adequate time for transitions to occur.
The Children’s Campus maintains an open door policy. You are your child’s first and most important teacher. We need your help to make this experience the best possible one for your child. We encourage you to participate in as many center activities as you can. Our classroom is always open for you to observe your child during the school day. We encourage you to visit anytime.
The goal of discipline is to maintain a safe and fair environment that encourages growth and development of the child’s self‐esteem. This type of environment encourages the building of interpersonal competence and fosters self‐discipline and respect for others.
