All children arriving at the center must be transported using age-appropriate child seats.
When bringing your child into the center we ask that you park in a designated spot and turn the engine off before entering the building. Please hold your child's hand to decrease the possibility of an accident. Parents must accompany children to the classroom and make verbal contact with a staff member before leaving the classroom. At this time is when communication about the child is very important.
If your child is having difficulty with drop off, please try these ideas:
Establish a regular routine. Whether you kiss, hug and then go. Put items intheir cubbies first then kiss and hug. Whatever you decide to do - do the sameeach day. This way the child will know the routine.
Separate once. If you leave the classroom and come back in again and again,this will increase the child's stress. If you need to tell the teacher something,please go to the office and they will help you.
Be reliable. Return when promised. If you pick up at a certain time each day the child will get use to that routine. If they know you pick them up right after afternoon snack and you don't come to get them until the end of the day, thechild will become stressed and not want to be left the next day. If you are goingto be late, please give us a call and we can make sure the child is made aware.
Thought the day, each time the children move from one area to another or outside, the teacher will be responsible for counting the children before and after they arrive. A physical count of children will be kept and marked off as children depart for the day.
