Hours of Operation: Normal hours of operation are 7:00am to 6:00pm Monday through Friday. I am occasionally available for overtime, overnight, or weekend care. Any noncontracted care will be by special arrangement only. Registration fees: A non- refundable set-up fee of $25 is charged upon registration of each child. Payment Schedule: Fees are payable in advance and are due no later than dropoff time on the first day of the week the child is contracted for care. No exceptions are made for absences due to illness, vacation, or other reasons. You can always pay early. Payment is still due the first of the week . A fee of $5 per day will be charged on late payments. Over-time fee: A late fee equal to $5 per child shall be made per 15 minute intervals for pick ups later or drop off earlier than the above agreed upon time. Example - 1 to 15 minutes late or early, you owe $5 per child; 16 to 30 minutes late or early, you owe $10. This will be strictly enforced and more than 2 late notices may result in a Termination of Services notice. If one-day (meaning 24 hours) prior notice of late pick up or early drop off was arranged late fee would be waived, but regular overtime charges will occur. HOLIDAYS/CLOSURES Daycare Holidays: Weekly fees for your child will be as follows: Daycare will be closed with pay on the following holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. Daycare will be closed with no pay on these additional days: New Year's Eve, Good Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, and Christmas Eve. MEDICAL EMERGENCIES Minor bumps and scratches are inevitable, but I make every effort to keep the children safe through supervision and childproofing. Minor injuries receive appropriate first aid, and if an emergency injury or illness occurs, you will be contacted as soon as possible. If necessary, your child will be taken to the nearest hospital where you will be asked to meet us. ILLNESS No child will be accepted with a fever, vomiting, diarrhea, runny crusty eyes, or unexplained rash or has had any of these symptoms within the last 24 hours. In cases of colds, sore throats, etc. a phone call to the Provider is required to decide on acceptance for the day. MEDICATION Both nonprescription and prescription medications, ointments, and creams can be given to your child if needed. Parents are required to fill out the proper forms and to supply all medications in their original containers. These must be labeled with the child's name. HOUSE RULES The following rules are reinforced for the safety and well being of everyone. There is no running in the house. There is no hitting, pushing, biting, grabbing, kicking, pinching the other children. Obscene language is not allowed. Children are not allowed to walk around the house with cups or bottles. Respectful treatment of other children and all property, toys, and furniture is expected. Willful destruction of property will be charged to the parent at the cost to replace the item. DISCIPLINE My philosophy is that you use discipline to teach a child. I achieve this through love, consistency, and firmness. The children are explained the rules of the daycare home frequently so that all know the guidelines. Once a child understands the rules and disobeys them, the following developmentally appropriate guidance techniques will be used. These techniques are: Redirection - Time Out - Removal of Privilege - Last Resort - when a child's behavior is continually upsetting or dangerous to myself or others, a Conference will be called with the parents. If the problems cannot be resolved, arrangements will have to be made for the child to go elsewhere for care. ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE Children are to arrive clean and ready for daycare. It is normal for children to be hesitant and sometimes even cry when dropping them off. Please be very brief (no more than 5 minutes is sufficient) during drop off times; the longer you prolong the departure the harder it gets. A smile, cheerful good-bye kiss, and a reassuring word that you will be back is all you need to do. SUPPLIES Parents are required to bring a blanket to be kept at the daycare home and a complete change of clothing (including socks) appropriate for the weather to be kept at the daycare home. Soiled clothing will be sent home and a clean change of clothes should be brought back the next day. Parents will be required to bring bathing suits to be kept at daycare in the summer. Appropriate attire should be worn for different weathers. All items need to be labeled with your child's initials. Parents must maintain these items at all times. Parents are required to supply diapers. I will notify you when your child's supply needs to be replenished. Parents should also bring an infant's/child's pain reliever, diaper rash ointment (if used) and a toothbrush. The Provider will supply all food (except breast milk and/or baby food for infants). TOYS No toys should be brought from home. TOILET TRAINING I will be more than happy to help with potty training provided that it is not done before the age of 2.5 years and parents initiate the process at home first, whether it is over a weekend or during vacation. I expect parents to work with me in this process which means once potty training is initiated I want the child in training pants or pull-ups at all times. Parents will be asked to supply extra sets of spare clothing during the training period. BIRTHDAYS/PARTIES Parents will be asked to bring a special food treat for their child's "special birth day." MEALS All food will be provided at no additional charge. If your child requires a modified diet, I will need a physician's written instructions. NAP/REST TIME Each child 5 years of age and younger is required to have a rest period. If your child no longer naps, he/she may look at books, but must remain quiet for the other children. Parents are required to supply a blanket for the child to be kept at the daycare home. GENERAL · Parents are required to notify me by 8 am if their child will not be coming for the day. · Parents are required to keep me informed of any change in addresses, telephone numbers, and other pertinent information. · Parents are required to inform me if they are at any other location than what is listed on their Enrollment Record and to provide a telephone number for that place. · No smoking is allowed on premises. · The daycare home will have a fire drill at least once per month. · Provider will promptly report to the proper authorities any sign of neglect or abuse of the children in care. · Parent/Provider conferences are held quarterly January, May, September and December. · A newsletter is distributed to parents each month. Parents are responsible to read this for news of what is happening in the daycare home, provider day's off, and other relative information which you may need to know. · Provider maintains an open-door policy for parents during daycare hours. Parents are required to let me know of their presence before entering the premises. Knock, then enter. Many times I need to lock the front door for safety purposes. · Parents are encouraged to call or text me at any time during the day or evening. Lots of times I will not be able to answer the phone as I am quite busy with the children - please leave a message and I'll call you back as soon as possible. TRIAL PERIOD AND TERMINATION OF SERVICE: The first 14 calendar days from child's start date are a probationary period for the provider, child, and parent. This agreement may be terminated at any time during this period. After the probationary period, this agreement may be terminated by either party by giving two-week's written notice if the child or children are to be permanently withdrawn from daycare. Two-week's pay will be accepted in lieu of the two-week's written notice. The Provider will also give the Family two- week's written notice of intent to cancel this agreement except in cases of family emergency (Provider's) or gross misconduct on the part of the parent or child. Failure to follow the agreement rules in this contract may be cause for immediate termination with no notice. Provider will give the Family a minimum of two-week's written notice of any increase in fees or significant changes to this agreement. Any and all additions/changes to this contract must be initialed by both the parent and the provider to be valid. I have read and fully understand this contract. By signing this agreement, I agree to comply with all terms herein.
