An employee can be sent to the home or work site to attempt contact with a parent/guardian.
The school principal may contact the Lee County Sheriff’s Department and release the child to this agency.

DROP OFF AND PICK UP

For safety purposes, children must be walked in by an adult in the morning .  That adult will be required to sign the child(ren) in everyday.  In the afternoon, an adult must come in to pick up the child(ren)  and sign the child(ren) out everyday. 

MEDICATION

We are only allowed to distribute prescription medication.  The medication must be in the original container with the child’s name on it.  A written parent permission note must also be filed with the program’s director.

FOOD

A healthy snack will be provided every afternoon at no additional cost.  

DISCIPLINE POLICY

  1. A redirection or verbal warning will be given when inappropriate behavior (disrespect, noncompliance, physical/verbal  intimidation)  first occurs.

     

  2. A cool down away from the group will be given when inappropriate behavior continues after the warning (age and behavior will determine the time).

     

  3. If inappropriate behavior continues after the cool down is done or the action is a safety concern, a discipline report describing the behavior will be issued.  This report will be discussed with and signed by the parent. The first write up for the child is a warning. Any write ups after that will result in a daycare suspension.  After 5 write ups If a child displays severe or continuous disruptive behavior that results in 5 write ups total the child(ren) will be expelled from the program.  The child(ren) are not allowed to return to the program for that year and the years in the future.

     

  4. Parents will be called to come immediately and pick up any student who is displaying severe or uncontrollable behavior.

     

  5. Any type of physical aggression toward an adult or child may result in an automatic suspension and/or immediate expulsion from the program. 


REST OF THE SCOOP

 Hats – They are allowed to be worn on outside field trips or during playground play but not in school.

 Homework – Your child will have the opportunity to do homework everyday.  He/she should be prepared and know the assignment.
