What if my child is sick?
Every effort is taken at TLC to reduce the spread of illness by encouraging hand washing and other sanitary practices. To keep us all healthy, please evaluate your child’s health before sending him or her to daycare. For the wellbeing of all concerned, we ask for your due diligence in this matter. If your child shows any of these signs of illness, please do not send you child to daycare. The following includes: stomach ache, irritability, fever, cough, sore throat, earache, rash, runny nose, vomiting/nausea, sneezing, diarrhea, or headache. Any child with a fever above 100˚ F, has vomited, or has diarrhea, will need to remain at home until all symptoms have subsided for a 24 hour period. A child may return 24-48 hours after the first dose of an antibiotic has been administered.Any communicable diseases will require a doctor’s note stating your child is no longer contagious and may resume normal activities at daycare. Children will be evaluated upon arrival to school each morning. Children who are ill or who may become ill will not be allowed to remain at school. If your child becomes ill while at school, parents are asked to pick up their child as soon as possible. If parents cannot be reached, the emergency contact will be called and asked to pick up your child.
Where will my child be in case of emergency?
In the event of an emergency, an evacuation is mandatory; we will relocate to Hope Elementary School. Otherwise, children will remain at TLC.
When is the tuition due?
Tuition is due on the first of each month. Yearly tuition will be paid in 12 equal installments. Parents are required to pay full tuition each month regardless of school closures, family vacations, and absences due to illness.
Can I arrange for someone else to pick up my child if I am unable to?
If someone other than a parent or guardian will be transporting your child from school, we ask that you list the adult on the emergency release form. We must have written permission from you if the adult is not on the release form before we will allow your child to leave the childcare. Please alert the adult transporting you child they will be asked to show identification before leaving TLC. All persons should be 18 years or older.
What if I am late to pick up my child?
Sometimes we all run a little late. This is understandable. Please make sure to pick up your child on time. A late fee will be charged to your account and will be due along with the next month’s tuition.
Do I need to pack a lunch for my child?
Yes. Parents are asked to provide a nutritious lunch for their child. TLC will provide a morning snack and an afternoon snack. Organic foods will be served when possible. Snacks may consist of a fruit, a protein, and a grain. Water and whole milk will also be offered. If your child has a food allergy or a dietary restriction, please let us know.
