Drop Off & Pick Up Policy

Please ensure your child is at the center by 10:00 AM. Upon arrival, it is the responsibility of the adult dropping off the child to check-in the child and walk them to their classroom, or to the staff member who greets them to assist their child. Children are not to be dropped off in the parking lot and allowed to enter unescorted.

Please call the center if your child will be absent for the day.

The parent(s) of the child shall at any time the child is in attendance be permitted access to all child care areas of the Center and shall make his or her presence known to Center Staff prior to removing the child from the Center.

Each parent/legal guardian will document in the enrollment papers the people authorized to pick-up his/her child. If you want a person who is not identified as an emergency and authorized person to pick-up your child, you must notify us in advance, in writing. Your child will not be released without prior written authorization. The provider will require photo identification from anyone that it is not recognized. Please notify your pick-up person in our policy.

A child will only be released to that person with proper identification, such as a valid driver’s license or picture identification. Please keep in consideration that although someone may be on the pick-up list, staff may still ask for I.D if the person picking up is not recognized. We thank you for your help in this matter. We must focus on your child’s safety.
