Frequently Asked Questions

What are your hours of operation?


We are open Monday through Friday, 6am to 6:30 pm.  We are closed on major holidays which are as follows:  Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Thanksgiving Friday, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day.


Are you open during school closure days because of bad weather?


We have staff members that live within a three mile radius.  Depending on how bad the weather is, and if parents still need us on those days, we are normally open.  If we find ourselves with hardly any children, parents are called and given a two hour time frame to pick up their children.


Do you have curriculum?


Our classes have lesson plans that are posted on their parent boards.  These lessons plans are put together in advance using High Reach Learning.  It is more of a hands on curriculum that we use to help them explore their world through play.  We sneak in the basics to get them ready for school.


What is your staff to children ratios?


12months to 3 years 1:5

3 to 6 years 1:10

5 to 16 years 1:15


What are your staff qualifications?


All staff members that are in charge of a group of children are qualified an Early Childhood Teacher (ECT).  We also keep up to date with 15 hours of on going training throughout the year.  All staff members that are a part of the Prairie Learning Center family also have current CPR, Universal Precautions, and First aid certification.
