What We Do

Rewards & Discipline

Rewards & Discipline

Dublin Learning Academy’s Pre-Kindergarten teachers further cement good behavior and accountability actions through behavior charts and a lot of praise! Students are rewarded for following school and classroom rules, displaying good manners, sharing, and cleaning up. When a student displays inappropriate behavior, the teacher will re-direct them.

Pre-Kindergarten Nutrition

At Dublin Learning Academy, proper nutrition is a staple in our day. To accommodate family nutrition plans and individual dietary needs, all Pre-Kindergarten students bring packed snacks and lunches from home. Pre-Kindergarten students who arrive before 8:00 a.m. may bring also breakfast to eat at school.
Dublin Learning Academy provides milk for Pre-Kindergarten students for meals and snack times. Please note that due to the health risks of students with severe allergies, Dublin Learning Academy has a school-wide peanut-free policy. A microwave and refrigerator is located in the classroom for food storage convenience.

Toddler Nap Time

Nap Time

Every child has different sleep and napping needs. Here at Dublin Learning Academy, we will work with all Pre-Kindergarten students and their parents to determine what is best for each child. Your child is given the option to nap after lunch on their own assigned cot. All bedding is provided by the parent and is sent home at the end of the week to be cleaned and returned the following week.
If you choose not to have your child nap, they will participate in teacher-led activities that support the weekly curriculum. At any time, parents may opt for their children to transition from taking naps to participating in classroom activities by completing the nap form and returning it to the office.

Toddler Diaper Changing
