*If a holiday falls on a weekend, the center will close either the Friday before or the Monday after (to be determined each year). The director will have the discretion of making changes based on differences in the calendar.
Our center opens at 6:30 am. No child will be admitted until we officially open at 6:30. Upon arrival, please take this time to share information about your child that may be pertinent to their care for the day (fussy, didn’t sleep well, change in schedule, visits from grandparents, etc). Routines are very important to children, and any change in them can have an effect on their behavior or emotions.
Children must be brought into the center by an adult. They must be signed in every day using the sign in/out book located on the table in the front hall (for toddlers through preschool students) or on the counter in the nursery (for infants). This documentation is very important, as it is used as a head count in the case of an emergency, as well as an additional head count for the Federal Food Program.
Each child must be signed out at the sign in/out book.
All people picking up a child will be asked for photo identification.
No one not listed on the enrollment form will be allowed to pick up your child, unless parent has given prior permission via note or phone call.
If there is a situation of divorce/separation and the custody of your child is given to only one parent, we will have to have a legal custodial agreement on file.
If the person that is picking up your child seems to be impaired in any way, we will not allow them to take the child from the premises. We will call a parent immediately to ask that someone else pick up your child.
