I am the director of a small half day preschool. The need in our area for good quality all day programs is significant, so we are going to become a full time program beginning this fall. We are a lisenced program and I have talked to our lisencing official about what we need to do as far as the state regulations are concerned. I ( and my board) have visited other full time programs to ask questions. I just have a few more questions that need answering and thought you all could help. First of all, does the person who prepares your meals, make out the menus? Who prepares your meals if this person is sick? Are you able to get subs if a teacher is out sick? It is easy for me now, because we are half day, but not sure about all day. Do your employess sign in or punch a clock? Do any of you offer a half day and a full day option? Do they have to committ to half day or full day for the whole year, or can they let you know month by month. I am concerned that money wise we would need that full-time tuition. Right now our space is limited and a new building is a few years off, so we will only be able to take 45 students. Any advice or help would be appreciated. Thanks!
