General School-Year Information: 

  • Each Spring, registered students and their families are invited to an Open House where you will learn additional details about our programs and also allow your child to explore our school, play with playdough, paint a picture, go outside in the play yard, meet other families, and of course, our teaching staff. 
  • Our school year begins the week after Labor Day and ends the week of Memorial Day.  We are closed on legal holidays.  We are closed for 2 weeks during the December holidays and follow the Stratford Public School calendar for winter and spring vacations.
  • Parent Orientation is held on the Tuesday evening after Labor Day.  At this important meeting, we will review all our procedures and what to expect on the first few days of school.
  • The Thursday and Friday following Labor Day are Visiting Days at HKR.  On these days, you and your child will visit for an hour to reaquaint yourselves with HKR before beginning regular classes the following week.
  • Teacher/parent conferences are held 3 times a year with an in-person conference in March and a phone conference in both October and May. These conferences will include discussions on your child's development, cognitive, social, and motor skills.
  • HKR hosts special programs for all classes including demonstrations by Beardsley Zoo, Mystic Aquarium, and Milford Audubon.  The cost of these programs is included in tuition.
  • Parents are always welcome guests at HKR!  You may visit at any time, celebrate a birthday, or volunteer for our many parent participation days.  Parents are also invited to join our HKR Parents Committee.  This group plans out-of-school activities, parent nights, and acts as our emergency telephone calling tree. 
  • Our parent bulletin boards in the front hall will guide you through what is going on daily at HKR, events in our area, and parent info.  There's even a Parent's Bargain Board where you can post ads for children's items that you wish to buy/sell such as clothing, furniture, toys, etc.

 

Snack Time Information:  Children bring their own snack daily.  We ask that it be a nutritious snack and a drink of water, milk, or 100% juice.

  • HKR has a nut, peanut, and peanut butter free policy.  Please read the ingredient labels on any items your child may bring to snack and make sure that there are no nuts on the list. 
  • All staff is certified in First Aid, CPR, and emergency medication.
  • We ask that lunch box/bag be clearly labelled on the outside and that all reusable parts be labelled as well.

Cleanliness Information:  Our school is cleaned and sanitized daily according to Connecticut regulations.  Children must also wash/sanitize their hands before playing at the sensory and water tables, using playdough, and before eating.  They also wash after toileting, coughing, sneezing, and blowing their nose.

  • You may bring extra clothing in a backpack for your child in case of accidents with toileting, playing at the water table, spilling snack, etc.
