Paid Holidays & Vacation
My Home Daycare recognizes Federal Holidays and will be closed and paid for the following holidays:
New Year’s Day
My non-paid days off include:
The day before and after Thanksgiving
Let it also be noted that once a year I will take a one week paid vacation. At least a one month notice will be given before the one week vacation.
*Please note that if a holiday does not fall on a regular day of care (Monday - Friday) then you are not obligated to pay for that day.
Meals & Snacks
I participate in the CCNI Food Program and offer well-balanced, nutritious meals. If your child arrives after a scheduled meal, it is your responsibility to feed your child prior to arrival. I'll provide Parent’s Choice Advantage formula with iron for babies if needed, but any other brand would need to be provided by parent/guardian. I’ll try my best to give a menu planned out for the month, but they may change occasionally. If your child has a food allergy let me know, so that I can accommodate them and you will also need to fill out an allergy form.
Breakfast: 8:00 AM - 8:45 AM
Lunch: 11:45 AM - 12:30 PM
Snack: 2:30 PM -3:00 PM
When sending a sick child to daycare, please remember that illnesses can be spread. It may interfere with my ability to care for your child and the other children in my care. If I feel that I cannot give a sick child the care they need without taking time away from other children, I will call and ask you pick up your child. Prompt pick up in this situation is needed.
Children who have vomited, have diarrhea, have a fever of 100 degrees or higher, or have a contagious illness must be kept home. They need to be symptom free for 72 hours before returning. I will notify you as soon as possible if any of these symptoms occur at childcare and you will need to make arrangements to have your child picked up as soon as possible. Days that your child misses due to illness, you are still required paid.(This includes days needed to quarentine due to covid-19).
** Please notify me within 24 hours if your child is diagnosed with a serious contagious illness. If you need me to give medication to your child, you must fill out a medication sheet. I will only give medication that is in the original container, with precise instructions and your child’s name on it.
** If my children or I become ill and I cannot provide care, I will notify you as soon as possible. If this occurs during childcare hours, you will be contacted and asked to make arrangements to have your child picked up. You are responsible for having back up childcare available. I’m allowed 5 paid sick days a year and can use at my discretion . After 5 days, within a 12 month period, you will not be charged for any other sick days that I close! The year runs Jan-Dec.
I am required to have immunization records on file for each child enrolled in childcare. These records need to be updated regularly according to the age of the child. I will send a note that an updated record is needed, please return it promptly!
Discipline is a learning process and not a punishment. Misbehavior will be handled in a firm, consistent, and positive manner. Discipline will be appropriate for the age of the child and the severity of the behavior. Behavior management methods will focus on making the children accountable for their behaviors and teaching respect for self, others and their surroundings.
1. Communicate - ask questions and involve the child in behavior decisions
3. Sit and watch (quiet time)
4. Corrective teaching
5. Loss of privilege or toy
6. Natural consequences
7. Positive reinforcement
8. Proactive planning
