Petra Preschool operates inside of a modern, safe, state of the art facility specifically designed for the education and care of children.
A modern, well-equipped facility
Meeting inside of the first floor of the northwest wing of the For the City Center in North-Central Austin, Petra Preschool operates across an area of more than 5,000 square feet of space newly rebuilt in 2010. The space features a spacious foyer area for check-in and includes more than 10 rooms including fully equipped classrooms, full bathroom facilities, an office, and a teacher's lounge. The outdoor play area features a spacious, naturally lanscaped soft mulched play area with attractive, secure fencing.
Safety & Security
We take the safety of the children at Petra Preschool seriously, and maintain protocols that exceed licensing standards in regards to teacher background checks, teacher-child interaction as well as facility access and security standards.
Our facility is equipped with electronically locked doors with buzz-in release technology, and the outside play area is fitted with gates that require entry of a secure code to enter. Additionally, all areas of the interior rooms of Petra Preschool are monitored by security cameras. Petra performs periodic fire drills and lock-down drills with the children.
All adults authorized to pick up children must show phone identification to the staff the first time they pick up children, and Petra maintains a policy relating to maintaining records on varying custody arrangements. Finally, all families must check-in and check-out their children through Kangarootime, a leading industry preschool management software package with mobile phone app access.
The full, exhaustive list of security provisions are maintained in "Security Protocols for Petra Preschool" and "Emergency Preparedness Plans" documents.
