 Sign In/Out

Children MUST be signed in and out of the center each day by an adult.  Children under the age of 18 are not allowed to sign them in or out.                                

Insect Repellent

Insect repellent will not be applied on a child without a completed and signed medicine sheet.  There are not exceptions to this DHR rule.                                     

Sick Policy

Children with one or more of the following symptoms are not allowed to attend until they have been free of the following symptoms for 24 hours:  Fever, throwing up and diarrhea.  Children with conjunctivitis/pink eye may not return until they have been on medication for 24 hours.  Children sent home with head lice may return after they have been treated.  If you discover head lice on your child please let us know so we can treat the center.                                    


This is not a new policy; however, we continue to have problems with children wearing non- athletic shoes to the center.  For the safety of your child, do not send them in flip flops, sandals, crocks or any other non-athletic shoe to the center.                                    

Birthday Parties

Children love having birthday celebrations with their friends in their class and we welcome these fun parties.  You are welcomed to bring store bought cakes, cupcakes or cookies.  The health department prohibits homemade food being served at the center.  Due to food allergies and chocking hazards, we ask that you do not send goodie bags.                                     

After-School Care Parents

Please call the center by 2 p.m. if your child is not riding the van.  Not knowing a child is absent delays the van route for the other children.                                

Pre-K 4 Field Trips

The first Pre-K4 field trip will be to the Birmingham Zoo on Thursday, September 15th.  We will be leaving the center at 9:30 a.m. and returning by 1:30 p.m.  Parents are always welcome to join us.  Please refer to your special events calendar for future monthly field trips.
