Forms
Upon enrollment, your child(ren) will need all state, county and Kids ´R´ Kids forms completed in a timely manner. All forms necessary will be provided by your Center.

Information on forms regarding your child(ren) or specific Center forms must be updated as needed.

Please see the Director for information regarding special diets and allergies.

Fees
A tuition and fee schedule will be provided by our school. You will be informed of all tuition rates, discounts, late fees, registration fees, check return fees, and any additional fees.

The tuition is due each Monday for the upcoming week.

Medication
All prescribed medication must be left at the front desk with the person in charge. A medication form must be filled out completely and signed by the parent or guardian before any medication can be given.

Medications must be in the original container and labeled as follows: child´s name, current date, dosage, times to be given, expiration date and any other special instructions.

Any non-prescription medication must have a signed, dated note from the child´s doctor stating the name of the child to receive the medication, name of the medication, amount to be given, times to be given, length of time to be given and any other special instructions.

Medications will only be dispensed by the administrative staff and are typically dispensed at 11:00 and 3:00 pm.

Medical Emergency
If a child becomes ill, injured, or has an adverse reaction to prescribed medication while at the Center, the parent(s) or emergency contact person will be notified immediately.

If it is necessary to seek immediate medical attention for a child, the child will be transported to the designated medical facility which will be listed on all emergency, transportation and enrollment forms.  The child´s vehicle and emergency medical permission forms, as well as the health information file, will accompany the child.

In the event of an occurrence of a communicable disease as outlined by the Department of Health, written notification will be posted on the classroom door within 24 hours or the next business day.

Transportation - To and From Public School
Transportation is provided to and from public or private elementary or grade schools designated by the Center.  Some elementary schools bus directly to us. 

Transportation Agreements are signed once for each school year.

Vehicle Emergency Forms must be completed and information kept up to date.

The Center will inform you of the time your child must be at the Center for transportation to his/her elementary or grade school.

If your child will not be transported by the Center to school, or will not be picked up by the Center from school at the end of the school day, you must notify the Center by 1:00 that day in order to avoid a $10 no-call fee.

Transportation - Field Trips
Field Trip Permission Forms must be signed and dated for each field trip.

Vehicle Emergency Forms must be completed and information kept up to date.

Children going on field trips must wear a Kids ´R´ Kids t-shirt.

Internet access to your child´s classroom is by password only. By enrolling your child at Kids ´R´ Kids you consent that your child(ren) may also be seen on the Internet by other persons viewing with passwords.  User ID`s and passwords will only be provided to those individuals approved by you, the parent.

There is no additional fee for this service.

Severe Weather, Fire or Emergency Situations
If an emergency situation develops such as severe weather, fire, physical damage to the building, or any other situation that poses a threat, the safety of the children is our first concern.

The Center is equipped with a weather band radio, a fire alarm sprinkler system and fire extinguishers. Fire and severe weather drills are conducted according to state and county regulations or every 30 days.

If there is an emergency situation and it becomes necessary to close the Center, parents will be notified to make arrangements for early pickup.

If there is inclement weather and it is determined that the Center will delay or close, you can watch Channel 2 for an update or simply call the center for a message.

If an emergency situation develops and it is determined that the building or premises are unsafe, your child(ren) will be transported to a safe location.

Parents will be notified of the situation and you will be required to pick up your child(ren) as soon as possible.

Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco
In our effort to provide a safe, healthy environment for each child to grow and develop, we maintain a Center free of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco use.

The use or presence of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco is prohibited in the building or anywhere on the grounds by Center staff, parents, or anyone visiting the Center.

The use or presence of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco is prohibited during any outing or field trip, as well as, on any vehicle used by the Center to transport your child(ren).

Discipline
At Kids ´R´ Kids Learning Academies we use a method of "redirection" to guide your child(ren) toward appropriate behavior. If a child is engaged in behavior not conducive to a safe and happy learning environment, the teacher will "redirect" the child toward appropriate behavior. (The use of physical punishment or harsh language is prohibited.)

Parents or guardians are required to abide by the Kids ´R´ Kids Discipline Policy any time they are on Center property.

Dismissal Policy
The staff will work with each child to fulfill the needs of that child, and every effort will be made to provide a positive learning experience. Special needs will be accommodated when possible.

Kids ´R´ Kids Learning Academies reserves the right to ask parents to make alternative arrangements for care if it is determined that a child´s needs cannot be met, or the child has not adjusted to group care provided by the Center. In the event behavior becomes disruptive to the program or becomes a problem that poses an unsafe situation for the child or other children in the class, alternative arrangements will be required.

If you, as a parent, are uncooperative in completing and returning forms, fail to pay your tuition on time, fail to follow any state or county regulations, or fail to follow any Kids ´R´ Kids Policy or Procedure, it may be necessary to dismiss your child(ren) from the Center.

The Parent`s Role
The relationship between parents and Center staff is vital to the success of a child´s experience. A partnership must be formed the first day, with open communication and understanding that the development and growth of the child is our top priority.

Parents can assist and help ensure a smooth transition by doing the following:

*Clock children in and out at the front desk and then escort them to their designated class. *Have all forms completed promptly. *Update forms as needed when changes occur (i.e. new phone number, address,etc). *Keep staff informed of special needs or changes that might affect your child´s behavior. *Notify the Center if your child is ill. *Do not bring an ill child to the center. *Notify the Center if your child will be absent. *Notify the Center if you will be later than usual picking up your child. *Provide a change of clothes marked with your child´s name (Center is not responsible for lost clothing). *Children should be dressed properly for the weather and play. *Do not allow children to bring toys. *Participate in the Center´s special activities. *Attend scheduled parent meetings and conferences. *Ask questions and address concerns as they arise.

Kids ´R´ Kids Learning Academies reserves the right to change or revise any policies, procedures, or tuition/fee schedules when deemed necessary. Written notification will be provided to parents.
