Your child attends a 5-Star rated program.

Step Up To Quality (SUTQ) is a five–star quality rating and improvement system administered by the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. SUTQ recognizes and promotes learning and development programs that meet quality program standards that exceed licensing health and safety regulations. The program standards are based on national research identifying standards which lead to improved outcomes for children.

Parents Often Ask These Questions

NO! Potty training is a developmental milestone, one which a child can easily control. When children are “ready” for potty training it usually happens quickly. Pembroke staff are happy to work with you as part of your “potty training team”! When your child is ready, your Pembroke teachers and you will develop a strategy supporting your child through this very important process.

Pembroke creates a partnership between home, school, and community. Although we believe young children need time at home with family, Pembroke understands the stresses of demanding work schedules and has created ways to meet your scheduling needs. We can provide Before and After Care for your preschool child. Our programming and scheduling can address your child’s needs in our safe and nurturing educational environment. We recognize that each schedule is unique. Please speak to either Cecilia or Andrea to customize a schedule meeting your needs.

Pembroke offers a unique program for children who do not meet the birthday cut off date for Kindergarten (born between August 1st and December 31st) but are ready for a formal school experience. Our 2 half-day per week classes meet the developmental needs of older toddlers ready for a formal class experience. We tailor activities/lessons for the older toddler and introduce more developmentally appropriate and challenging activities as the year progresses. The 1:6 teacher student class ratio enables teachers to provide activities tailored to each student’s needs. The following school year the child enters our mixed age classes confidently and enthusiastically with no separation anxieties!

Of course! Just make sure a staff member supervises. Hobbes is a registered therapy dog. He is gentle, loving and enjoys having the children pet him. Just remember: He is a dog and may become anxious and stressed if too many children crowd around him.

Pembroke posts a notice on our website, changes our school phone voice mail greeting, and adds our school to the Channel 5 weather/school closing list. If Avon Lake Schools are closed, Pembroke will also close.

Always dress children for the weather of the day. If the winter windchill temperature is 20 degrees or above, children will go outside for a short while. We think of the outdoors as an extension of your child’s classroom. We are outdoors as much as possible. Accordingly, send your children dressed for the weather with things like snow boots and all other gear necessary to enjoy the elements. On rainy days don’t forget rain boots, rain coats, and rain hats. Of course, make sure all clothing items are clearly labeled with your child’s name.

Make sure to ask them! If your child’s teacher can’t answer your question, please seek out Cecilia or Andrea or Steve. Our staff page on the website lists everyone’s email address and the website has phone and email links that connect directly to the office. Just remember 933-3782 and info@pembrokekids.
