This page is for first time & returning parents with information & reminders
on what to expect here at Woodinville Country Day School!
Also a great resource for potential WCDS parents to better know our school and programs.
Everyone is excited to start the day! We’ll welcome you with smiles and hello’s. You can drop off any items in the cubby area. Sign in your child (and out when departing!) on the roster near the door. Please write down any concerns we should know for that day. Feel free to share with us in person as well. Check for new announcements. Also, we understand each child is different with departing from mom & dad, and do what we can to ease their anxiety. At the end of the day, they won’t want to leave!
Our typical day looks like this:
- 9:00 Choice Time
- 9:45 Clean Up
- 9:50 Music and Movement
- 10:10 Snack
- 10:30 Reading
- 10:40 Group Time
- 11:00 Art
- 11:30 Recess
- 12:00 Lunch
We provide the time for everyone to sit down and eat lunch, but lunch must be provided by you. We do provide snack though! And have a water fountain for thirsty learners.
Jacket and bike helmets. Backpacks are fine but not required. Spare clothing and shoes are good to have on hand. All items should be marked with child’s name.
Children are NOT required to be potty trained, however we encourage them to be potty “training”.
Yes. Please inquire personally and we’ll share with you the parent information of those that agreed to do so.
Yes. But there must be an invitation for all class members. Otherwise, please share in person.
Typically, when there is nausea and/or a fever involved, we ask that you keep your child home, and for at least 24 hours after the fever breaks. If your child has a runny nose we ask that you use your discretion in keeping him/her home as to ensure we keep our class as healthy as possible.
At WCDS, we encourage positive redirection. Positive discipline teaches children where limits are set, how to maintain control of their bodies, and how to problem solve in the event of the conflict. We encourage children to empathize with one another’s feelings and see the results of their actions. We discourage inappropriate behavior.
Please check our calendar for holidays or times when school is not in session. This is the hub to know what is going on at Woodinville Country Day School. Please check regularly for new events or to plan accordingly. We also follow the Northshore School District calendar.
We accept payment by check, due by the first of every month, Sept-June for total of 10 payments. We also have an online payment system available. If paying online, must be completed by the 27th the previous month in order for it to be available to us by the 1st. Thank you!
Yes! We understand with multiple children how much it means to keep costs down. We offer 10% discount on each additional child attending WCDS Preschool and PreK programs.
WCDS is an exciting place to be! We plan to add Spanish & Yoga to our week in the near future. Also, if sufficient interest is shown, we can make our classes full day and/or provide a 5th day. If this is something you’d like to sign up for please advise your teacher or the director.
