Our goal is to provide a safe and secure environment for your child that fosters physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development. Parent’s as a child’s first and most important teachers, are an important part of our program. While you are participating in the program, we hope to develop a partnership, between home and school, whichbenefits the development and growth of your child.
Full-time care is for up to 50 hours per week. If a child’s attendance exceeds the
contracted amount, you will be charged $15.00 per hour for every hour over the
contracted amount. This charge will be assessed at the end of each month.
Child’s Absences and/or Vacations:
If your child will not be attending daycare due to illness or other, please let us know as
soon as possible. No discounts will be given for your child’s absences due to illness or
vacations. If your child will not be attending the facility for whatever reason, you are still
required to pay.

Communication is essential as we work together to meet the needs of your child. Please

The Center is focused on the child, while providing a supportive environment for both parents and staff. Your involvement is both welcome and encouraged. We will keep you informed of classroom and Center activities through daily report forms, weekly newsletters. There are also bulletin boards throughout the Center that may have special notices for parents. If you wish to join us for lunch, please give us 24 hours’ notice. You may also be asked to assist with field trips, cooking projects, or other special classroom activities. Parent-teacher conferences are held at least once a year. This allows both of us the opportunity to share important information concerning your child and the program offered at the Center. In addition, conferences may be held at any time throughout the year, at either the request of the parent or the teacher. Parent meetings will be held at various times throughout the year. These include both social and educational events.
Topics for discussion and speakers will be based on parent and teacher request. Please remember that drop-off and pick-up times are very busy periods in terms of transitions and adjustments. These periods are not the best times to discuss your child’s progress or growth especially if he or she is standing with you. The best way to address questions or concerns is by calling the office and leaving a message. When the classroom is quiet and the children situated, the teacher can return your call. Do not call the teacher directly, since he/she is focusing on all children in their care.
We believe that the discipline of a child is achieved through patience, consistency, and
positive reinforcement. We also teach them kindness and to be respectful to others. The
way to do this is by the example we set. We explained the rules of the facility frequently.
Once the child understand the rules and disobeys them we will then take further action
with Positive Reinforcement, Redirection, and Time-Out. If the child's behavior is
continually upsetting or dangerous to others, the parents will be contacted. If the
problems still continues after a conference with the parent. The child must be removed
from the facility immediately. (No exceptions)
As strong as our immune system has become over the years, we unfortunately still get sick. Because of this we allot ourselves five sick/personal days per year. We also use these days for our continuing education classes (CPR, Pediatric First Aid, etc.) in order to keep our childcare license in good standing. (You will be notified in advance).
According to State Licensing Standards, a child must be fever free for 24 hours before
returning to the center. Please do NOT administer a fever-suppressant and bring your
child to the center. This is unfair not only to your child but also to the other children and
Occasionally, children will need to receive medication while at the Center. If your
schedule allows, you may wish to come during the day and give the medication yourself.
In order for the Center to assume that responsibility, the following guidelines must be
followed: (with no exceptions)
1) Prescription medication must be ordered by a physician for the child to receive the
medication. Do not ask that we administer medication that was prescribed for another
child or member of your family. Prescriptions must be in the original container with your
child’s name on the prescription
2) No medication, whether prescription or non-prescription, will be administered to a
child without written parental authorization. Permission to administer medication forms
are available in the office. The medication form must include the following:
A. Name of medication
B. Amount of dose
C. Time to be given
D. Date(s) to be given
E. Parent signature
Medication should be handed to your child’s teacher rather than leaving it on the counter
or in a cubby. All medication must be in the original container with the child’s name
printed clearly on the label.
We are more than happy to encourage potty training as long as the child is ready
(typically between 2 and 3 years old). The initial start needs to be done at home for at
least two weeks with success before it can be effectively started at daycare. Parents will
be required to supply pull-ups and wipes. Children will be allowed to come to daycare in
cotton training pants/underwear after they have been accident free for at least two weeks
in pull-ups. Communication between parents and the daycare provider is imperative for a
successful transition from diapers to toilet. (No exceptions) if provider has to do it there
will be a fee of $30.00 a week due when tuition is due.
In order to assure the safety of your child, we ask that you sign your child in and out
every day. After signing-in, take your child to the designated classroom or area. Make
verbal contact with a teacher in order for us to know that your child has arrived. (that is a
must, no exceptions) No older children allow unless companied by an adult. Tell your
child that it is time for you to go to work, then leave. Please know that children usually
calm down and are participating before a parent reaches the parking lot. Please feel free
to call at any time to check on your child. Please check your child’s cubby or mail box
each day for messages, art work, or other take-home items. (Video service coming soon).
Authorized Pick Up:
Your child will be released to those who are listed on your authorization form.
Please advise those who are list that identification will be required. Please notify the
office with any changes in pick-up arrangements or authorization form. In the event that
a parent or other authorized person arrives to pick up a child and he or she appears to be
under the influence of drugs or alcohol. A ride home or other appropriate assistance will
be offered in order to ensure the safety of the child.
