What do you mean when you say you are a “Christian based” program?
Kids Day Inn is a ministry of Pathway Church. We teach the Bible as the Word of God and tell the children about Jesus! Our program is based on Christian principles and we approach everything from this perspective. The Kids Day Inn curriculum features a “Bee Attitude” each month; we will have a Bible story and a memory verse each day to support the current month’s theme. Many churches are represented here at Kids Day Inn and we welcome each one. You do not have to be a member of Pathway Church to attend Kids Day Inn!
Are the days the same between Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays? Will my child miss anything by choosing one day over another?
No. Your child will not miss out on anything by choosing one day over another. Although each teacher develops their own lesson plans, they are all based on the “Bee Attitudes” and will all use the same Bible verse for the month. Your specific teacher’s lesson plans and activities are the same for the entire week. So the children in the Monday class will be learning/doing the same things as those in the Thursday, or Friday class.
Is tuition the same for the months when classes are out of session (ie. Christmas, Spring Break, SpecialHolidays, etc.)?
Yes, tuition is an annual fee that has been divided up into 9 equal monthly payments for your convenience. The days per month will vary due to holidays, etc. but each day (Monday, Thursday, & Friday) will have exactly the same number of days in session for the school year.
What are the age requirements to attend Kids Day Inn?
Kids Day Inn serves children who are 1, 2, or 3 by September 1st of the current school year.
Does my child have to be potty trained to attend Kids Day Inn?
No, your child does not need to be potty trained for this part of our program. Please provide the needed diapering supplies for the day and a change of clothing. Three-year-olds need to be in pull-ups with side tabs or regular underwear. There are no diapers in the three’s classrooms.
Are binkies/pacifiers or other comforts items allowed in the classroom?
Apart from our 1-year old class, for health reasons we do not allow binkies/pacifiers in the classroom. At the beginning of the year, if needed, a child may bring a comfort item (I.E. blanket or stuffed animal) to help with separation anxieties.
What is your child to teacher ratio?
What does a typical day look like?
Class begins at 9:15am and ends at 1:15pm. While at Kids Day Inn children will spend time learning about God, singing songs, doing finger plays, creating simple crafts, making new friends, eating lunch together and exercising both body and mind. They will also be introduced to colors, shapes, numbers and nursery rhymes; it is a full day filled with tons of fun! Don’t be surprised if your child is ready for a quiet time when they get home.
