Independent Presbyterian Church Day School Immunization Policy

You have the power to protect your child

 

In light of recent vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks and appropriate research, the Day School Committee, including our committee pediatrician, has updated our immunization policy.

 

To attend the Independent Presbyterian Church Day School, children must be immunized with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Academy of Family Physicians recommended following vaccines according to their appropriate age guidelines:  RV (Rotavirus), DTaP (Diphtheria, Tetanus, & Pertussis), Hib (Meningitis), MMR (Measles, Mumps, & Rubella), PCV (Pneumococcus), IPV (Polio), and Varicella (Chicken Pox). Verified health exemptions will be taken. Having our students vaccinated will help protect children under the recommended vaccination age, our students with compromised immune systems, and pregnant mothers.

 

Thank you for doing your part in providing our children and families with safe and long lasting protection.

 

If you have any questions, please call Kathy Leaver, 930-8166.

IPC Day School
Since its beginning in 1965, the Independent Presbyterian Church Day School was founded as a vision of the church to provide a positive preschool experience for children of church members and the community at large.  The Day School is designed for children age six months through Five-Year-Old Kindergarten.  We have an approximate enrollment of 210 children and 40 staff. 

Hours of operation: Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The number of days a child may be enrolled is dependent upon the child's age.

Mission

The Independent Presbyterian Church Day School is a ministry to children and both their families in our church and in our community.  Believing that children are a gift of God, we provide a quality early childhood education within a Christian environment.  We strive to provide a comprehensive curriculum, nurturing the whole child through varied learning experiences and settings.


Philosophy

Child development is a continually growing field producing knowledge of how children grow and learn.  This knowledge is based upon child development theories.  From these theories, we know that children grow and learn in different ways and at various rates.  The level of development of each child is recognized on an individual basis.  Evaluation of each child makes it possible to develop the child’s strengths and assist with any weaknesses.

 

We believe that providing an environment and curriculum rich in various exposures is important in our efforts to help children achieve their potential.
