General Rules for All Children’s Programs

IMG_0059We ask that every parent works together with our teachers to create a safe environment. As such, it is important to adhere to some general guidelines that will help us continue to safely provide fun, caring, and educational programs for our children.

  • A parent or guardian must be in the building during the time his/her child is in a program.
  • For everyone’s safety, all children must either be with their parents or in the designated classroom corresponding with their age. No child will be allowed to remain unsupervised.
  • If a child is disrupting a classroom, the teacher will redirect the child and talk with her/him in an age appropriate manner. If the problem persists, the teacher will notify the parents and remove the child from the classroom when necessary.

For those interested in celebrating B’nei Mitzvah with Kol Sasson, please contact our B’nei Mitzvah Coordinator at least 6 months prior to the Bar/Bat Mitzvah. This allows the young adult to sufficiently prepare for becoming a Bar/Bat Mitzvah in our community.
