Parents are always welcome to drop by and observe or participate in classroom activities.
All written records about children, staff and parents are strictly confidential. Parents may read any accident or injury reports about their children in the classroom logs but may not have access to incidents involving other children. Phone numbers and addresses of children in our care are not given out without the written permission of the parent.
During the early childhood years, children are learning to be in charge of themselves. We believe in establishing consistent, understandable limits and in having teachers who respond to inappropriate behavior with insight, sensitivity and skill. We believe it is our responsibility to provide children with positive guidance, and, in our experience, most children respond well to our approach. In the event that a child does not respond, we will notify the families and work closely with them to develop a plan to help the child gain self-control and a positive attitude toward his peers and teachers.
Occasionally, a child will experience difficulty in adjusting to or abiding by certain rules of behavior in a group setting. If your child is experiencing difficulty, you will be notified by your child’s teacher and a conference may be scheduled. The teachers, along with the director, will work with you to resolve the situation. If your child continues to display negative behavior, putting himself/herself or the staff at risk of physical harm, or is damaging center property, the center reserves the right to dismiss your child.
The Child Care Center reserves the rights to refuse/terminate care with a two-week notice because of behavior exhibited by the child or parent that’s considered detrimental to the center. The definition of detrimental is determined to affect the safety or well-being of staff or children or non-compliance with center policies, including payment procedures.
