Frequently Asked Questions
Hours of Operation
What are your hours?
Our current COVId-19 hours are limited from 8:30am-4:15pm. This limits greatly the spread and exposure to COVID-19 and in turn limiting potential quarantines for your child and family.
Are you open year round?
Yes, our program is open all year. For a full list of scheduled school closures, please click "Family Forms" above and "2020-2021 School Closings".
How long have you been open?
We have been open for over 10 years. We are proud of the reputation we have established. Please ask around, most of our families attend our program based on referrals from other families. It's a true honor.
Do you have a high turnover rate with teachers?
Early Childhood Education and Care historically is a field teachers enter prior to working in the public sector of Elementary Education. This accounts to the largest factor of why programs have teachers come and go. Continuity is something our program strives for. We are grateful for the hard work that all of our teachers provide and have provided our students (present and past) no matter the length of time they are with us.
Can I set up a tour in person?
At this time we are not offering in person tours. We do have a virtual tour available on our website. Additionally, our Admissions Director, Ms. Alissa, is always happy to schedule a personal video call or you may attend one of our weekly "Q&A" sessions.
I would love to enroll my child in your program, how do I go about that?
You will want to arrange a meeting (virtual until further notice) with Ms. Alissa to obtain enrollment forms. She can be reached on the school text line at 508-488-4198, phone call to 508-388-7802 or email to LittleMilestonesFalmouth@gmail.com.
Do I need to provide a deposit to hold my spot?
Yes, a non refundable deposit in the amount of two weeks is required to hold a spot. Additionally a $75 non refundable application fee is required. The deposit will be applied toward your child's first two weeks. In the event you do not begin on the determined time, you would forfeit your deposit and application fee.
How much does the program cost?
Please click on "Pricing" above for a full list of up to date prices for both full day and half day programs in all age groups.
Do you offer financial aide?
We do offer assistance for families in need. Please discuss this detail with our Admissions Director and she can provide you with an application to do so.
Will my child be required to wear a mask?
Children 2-4 are strongly encouraged to wear a mask, but not required. Children 5 and up are required to wear a mask (per EEC protocol).
Will my child be allowed to play with other children?
Yes, emotional and social development is one of the biggest skill sets a child will learn in early childhood education. It is imperative that they have many opportunities to engage in a playful manner with peers.
Class Set Up
