Medications will only be administered with the written consent of the parent or guardian. All medications will be placed in a locked container. A medication sheet must be on file and signed by the parent/guardian. Medications must be in the original container and marked properly with the child’s name, date, dose and physician prescribing the medication. All medication must be given to the Child Development Specialist responsible for your child. This includes over-the-counter. We are not able to keep medication on hand for possible illness (Tylenol, cough medications, etc).
We understand children are susceptible to minor illnesses and that you may request your child to remain indoors throughout the day. Our policy states that all children, weather permitting, spend a few minutes outside in the fresh air. All efforts will be made to bundle your child in appropriate clothing brought from home. We will not go outside when temperatures are below 10 degrees above zero including wind chill or above 100 degrees including heat index.
If the center closes due to circumstances out of control (snow or ice), tuition will remain the same. Any closings will be announced on the radio, TV, and our voice mail. We will make every attempt to be open normal hours.
Each child must have an extra set of clothing. Each child’s clothing will be stored in a back pack provided by the parent with their child’s name on it. If a child’s clothing becomes dirty or soiled, we will change the child’s entire outfit and the clothing will be rinsed. The dirty clothing will be sent home in a bag to be laundered. In cold weather, children will need a coat, snow pants, boots, hat and mittens.
