Arrivals and Departures:
Every child in attendance must be signed in every morning and out in the afternoon. A child will only be released to someone on the pickup list or a parent on the application. If someone other than those on the pickup list is going to pick up a child a parent will have to do all of the following:
- Notify the center in advance by phone or in person who the person will be
- Make sure the person picking up my child has state approved picture identification
- Give the person picking up my child the last four digits of my social security number
- Communicate to the person picking up the above procedure
- Make sure that any person when dropping my child off or picking my child up knows that they must sign the child in or out, and make a staff member aware of my child’s arrival or departure
Monthly curriculum and menu calendars are distributed on the first of each month. Parental notices will be posted on the classroom door, bulletin board, or personally distributed via email. Sign-in sheets for authorization to give medication are located at the front desk. An authorization list to have your child picked up by someone other than yourself or those already listed on the child’s enrollment form is also located at the front desk.
We hope that you, as a parent, will feel free to openly discuss and allow us the opportunity to work through any problems that may arise concerning your child and the center.
The Children’s Academy invites parents to volunteer their time to help oversee students during special events, parties, and programs. Sign-up forms are available at the front office. Those parents who wish to share special talents and cultural heritage with students are welcome.

What to Bring For Your Child:
Older children should wear clothing that is comfortable and that they can manage without help. Items such as jackets, backpacks, and sweaters should be marked with the child’s name. Students should be dressed accordingly to modesty, cleanliness, neatness, and the weather. A child must wear appropriate clothing with no offensive slogans or writing. Shoes should be comfortable and suitable for any situation. Tennis shoes or dress shoes are the best. For safety reasons flip flops are not allowed and The Children’s Academy will not be responsible for accidents caused by improper footwear.
Even older children may have spills or accidents and soil their clothes. Please furnish your child with an extra complete set of clothing and label each article with a permanent marker.
