Our Center: The Basics
Childcare? Daycare? Preschool?
One question we often hear is, "Are you a daycare or
a preschool?" That's a great question and the answer is we
are a little of everything in a way that, we hope, creates an ideal
setting for children and families. We now serve children from 0
through 6 years and strive to offer hours and
schedules consistent with most day care centers for the flexibility that
many families need. Similarly we have nap time and do not require
children to be potty trained. When it comes to our program, though, we are incredibly mindful of the learning experience that children should have while in our care. To learn more about why "preschool" most accurately reflects our education program, visit our Education page.
We are located at 350 Double Tree Lane, Grafton, WI 53024 and are right next to the Family Farm. We serve Grafton, Cedarburg, Mequon, Saukville, Port Washington, Fox Point, Bayside, and Glendale, and hope to continue to expand our reach. Given our location a minute away from the I-43 Cedarburg exit, we are glad to be easily accessible for all.
Hours of operation
We are open from 6:30am until 6:00pm. A child may be present at the center for any number of hours in a day.
Families will select a fixed schedule upon enrollment. Schedules can be 1 through 5 days. Upon enrollment, families will communicate to us the number of days and times for drop off and pick up on those days and this will become the child's "permanent schedule". All schedules including days and times are subject to availability. For any special arrangements including 4/5K half-days or wrap around, please inquire directly.
Meals and Snacks
New Frontiers does provide two healthy snacks per day, one morning
snack (breakfast) and one snack after nap time.
Menus will be planned one month in advance, sent home along with the
monthly newsletter, and posted on the Parent Resource board in our
Lunches do need to be sent from home daily and each class has a
refrigerator, microwave, and toaster to help store and heat meals.
New Frontiers provides 1% milk for 2+ year old students and Whole
milk for toddlers with all meals and snacks.
New Frontiers is a peanut and tree nut free facility.
Students do not need to be potty trained to attend New Frontiers! New Frontiers understands that every child's and family's journey through potty training is unique and personal and we will do whatever we can to work with families to make the experience successful for all.
Please inquire via phone, email , or use the contact page of this website for this year's weekly tution rates.
Enrollment is completed by filling out our Enrollment package of forms which is available via email or hard copy at the center and submitting these forms along with a $50 one-time enrollment fee plus the first two weeks of tuition to secure the child's spot at the center.
For the well-being of our children, we have made deliberate decisions about the construction and design of our school. We are very proud to have GreenGuard certified furniture, flooring, sleeping cots, and various other pieces of equipment and we strive to continuously make choices that support the health and safety of our students.
