Age Requirement Explanation:
La Petite Ecole (Creche) – Children must be 12 months as of August 1, and must be walking to join this group. Students joining this group do not need to be potty-trained, since it is part of the daily training. La Petite Ecole team will work with you on a potty training program for your children.
Pre-School (Petite Section de Maternelle) – This class is children who are 3 years old as of August 1. Students joining this group must be potty-trained. No pull-ups of any kind allowed in this classroom.
Pre-K (Moyenne Section de Maternelle) – This class is children who are 4 years old as of August 1.
Kindergarten (Grande Section de Maternelle) – This class is for school age children, who are 5 years of age as of August 1.
The Small Print
In compliance with Arizona educations recommendations, age is determined based on age of the child as of August 1 of the calendar year. For example, a child must be 4 by August 1st, to be registered in the Pre-K section for this particular school year.
The only exception to that rule is that a non-potty-trained 3 years-old will be registered in La Petite Ecole and will stay in this class until potty-trained. The headmaster will then determine is the child can move to Pre-school, in La Grande Ecole.
Children cannot change class during the course of the school year.
The Headmaster has the discretion to make final decisions regarding class placement.
