Day of Attendance/Arrival Time:

Bringing your child in by 9 am on the specified days ensures your child’s participation in developmentally appropriate activities. When children arrive at 10 am or after, children in the class are affected as this tends to create a disruptive environment. Therefore, we ask you to call the center if you know your child will arrive after 10:00 AM. If we are not notified and arrival is after 10:00 am, the child may not attend that day unless extenuating circumstances prevail.

Schedule:

A balance of teacher-directed, teacher guided and child initiated routine is included in the daily schedule. Children play outside every day, weather permitting. Gross motor activity is provided for the children indoors during inclement weather. All children are expected to nap each day.

If a child is in attendance and the following conditions or symptoms are observed, the child will be kept comfortable and isolated in a supervised area. Parents will be notified to pick the child up as soon as possible.

  • Fever; underarm temperature of 100 degrees or greater

Contagious illnesses such as strep throat or ear infections require the child to be on antibiotics 24 hours and fever free without the use of fever-reducing medications before returning to the center.

A child with an infectious illness may return to the center with a doctor’s approval

When a child becomes ill, the parent should notify the Director and other parents will be notified if necessary.

Our staff is trained in emergency procedures and basic first aid. In the case of minor accidents or injuries, parents will be contacted by phone and receive an incident report when the child is picked up. In the case of a more serious accident, injury, or illness, parents are notified immediately. Please inform staff of any changes of emergency contact numbers so we can contact you.

In the case of a disaster:

The center has an emergency/disaster plan in place. This plan can be viewed upon request at any time.
