Arrival & Dismissal



Please read this notice very carefully and share it with any and all persons who may drop off and/or pick-up your child.  This includes grandparents, nannies, sitters and any persons designated on your pick-up list.

Due to the DCF requirements and for the safety of our preschoolers, your child must be dropped off and picked up in their classroom at their scheduled arrival/dismissal time. 

 PLEASE use the parking lot in front of the gym (Family Life Building) to park and use the appropriate walk way to cross.  You will enter through the black gates in between Kohl’s Hall and the Gym and then proceed into the Main Entrance of Assumption ECLC building to drop off/pick-up your child. 

 We cannot stress enough the importance of:

  • Holding your child’s hand when coming from or going to your car.
  • Keeping social conversations to a minimum until children are safely in your care or signed into their classroom.
  • Greeting your child upon drop off/pick-up, whether in car or walking – CELL PHONES ARE NOT TO BE USED AT THIS TIME!

Philosophy Statement
Founded in Christ, the Assumption Early Childhood Learning Center creates a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment for children beginning at infancy.  The teachers and staff care for and value each child, as a gift from God, and entirely promote their physical, intellectual, social, emotional, and spiritual growth.  In partnership with families, children leave Assumption with the skills that provide them with a seamless transition into kindergarten.  Each child develops a sense of confidence, autonomy, self-discipline, respect, and love of God and neighbor.
