What is the minimum age children are accepted?
We accept children starting with 18 months
If a child still wears diapers, can they still come to the nursery school?
The nursery school accepts children with diapers, considering it part of the child`s personal development. The transition out of diapers depends on a certain independence the child reaches in time.
What will my child need at nursery school?
***For safety reasons children are not allowed to wear jewellery
Can my children bring their toys at Pick Me Academy?
During the initial period , a child can bring his favourite toy which can help during this time. Generally we discourage children from bringing toys, jewelry or any other objects into the nursery school, because these can be lost or damaged.
May I stay with my child in the nursery if he's in his initial stage?
At Pick Me Academy parents are not allowed to stay with their children during the activities sessions. If you stay with your child it will be even more difficult for him afterwards and he will not understand why suddenly his mother cannot stay with him anymore. Moreover, all the other children have dropped tears and longed for their parents, and the presence of an adult could reopen not healed wounds.
What can I do to help my child to fit in the group?
You can give him constant support, to explain him how nice is it going to be, how much he will like it, that he will learn new things and that he will make lots of new friends. But in order to do this, you must be convinced for yourselves of all these things, and above all these the integration program is going to be a step- by- step one, starting with a short one and progressively enlarging the hours spent in the nursery. We advise you to leave your child only 1 or 2 hours in the first week if you are afraid that the separation can be difficult.
The medical assistance is assured throughout the entire stay of our children in Pick Me Academy . As our aim is to provide a healthy and safe environment that promotes the physical and mental well being of children, we have on staff a nurse that checks the children daily and observes the children’s state of health upon their arrival at school. If she notices an altered state of health, the parents are immeadiately informed. If children are considered to be “sick”, they are isolated from the other children awaiting the arrival of their to take them home.We also have a pediatrician who checks them every week. We do not accept children that are potentially sick and can represent a risk to the health of their colleagues. If your child suffers from a bout of vomiting or diarrhoea please ensure that they are kept at home for at least 24 hours after the last bout of sickness and/or diarrhoea. If your child suffers from a bout of vomiting or diarrhoea while at Pick Me Academy you will be contacted immediately and asked to collect your child as soon as possible.This is to prevent the spread of any infection.
