Princeton Community Family Learning Center
Q. When does the next term start?
A. As long as there's space, enrollment is ongoing. There's no need to wait for a start date.
Q. My child is ready for preschool, except for one thing. They're just not yet potty-trained. Is that a problem?
A. No. PCFLC accepts children still in diapers/Pull Ups. We are glad to help out with potty-training! We do ask that you provide your child's Pull Ups.
Q. Do I pay for absences?
A. Cub Parents fill out a Weekly Reservation Form, which prompts parents to indicate which day(s) and hours they need for the week. The days and hours indicated are the only days that must be paid. The days left unselected incur no fees whatsoever.
Q. My family will be traveling abroad for a month. Do I have to pay for this time that my child will be away?
A. No, you'd simply tell us your child will be away, and when to anticipate your return.
Q. I'd like to use your Drop-In Service. How do I do that?
A. If PCFLC is able to accomodate you with an opening that exists in an age-appropriate classroom, the Drop-In Service begins just as soon as your child's registration paperwork is submitted in its entirety.
Q. I noticed you accept children up to age 6. What is the curriculum for children who, in some instances, would already be in kindergarten had their birthdays come a little earlier?
A. We do not turn children away from a kindergarten curriculum based on "not making the cut-off date." At the advice of Mom and Dad, PCFLC is more than willing to provide kindergarten-level instruction to a child who traditionally does not qualify based on age.
Children working toward completing their kindergarten year with PCFLC are required to be enrolled full-time. It is at the discretion of PCFLC to determine if your child is ready for kindergarten work, and in the event that they are, PCFLC mirrors Princeton Regional School's kindergarten curriculum for a smooth transition to 1st grade. In many instances, once a child completes a private kindergarten program such as that offered by PCFLC, "cut-off dates" are no longer applicable and entry into 1st grade is granted.
