Q: Do you have an open parent policy?
A: Yes. Parents are welcome to visit and pick up their children at any point during the day. However, we do ask that you notify us ahead of time to minimize the disruption to our daily routine.
Q: Is there a snack program for children in your care?
A: We provide well-balanced snacks and we encourage children to try new foods. We adhere to the state guidelines when writing our menus. Snacks contain two food groups. Sweets of any type are limited to special projects such as baking with the children or birthday treats that you may send from home. Our menu is posted at the beginning of each week. If your child needs special foods because of allergies we ask that you provide these and we will supplement their meals with allowable foods. We do not shop for special diets. If your child wishes to bring foods to share with the class be sure that they are healthy foods such as fruit, cheese, or something exotic that you would like the children to try. We usually have children with food allergies so please check with us first, Birthday treats from home are fun and we enjoy it when you bring them. Allow your child to be creative with this. Fruits and dips, homemade muffins, ice cream, etc are appreciated.
Q: What kind of emergency training does your staff have?
A: All of our childcare providers are required to have infant and child first aid and CPR training.
