The Baby Play Place Preschool utilizes the Creative Curriculum for Family Childcare. Additionally, we incorporate themes and study units that help children make connections across all developmental domains, learn new concepts, and vocabulary, and practice other early learning skills. Family engagement is an important part of our program. Each month you will be provided with a schedule of our monthly themes and activities as well as a summary of our current study unit. You will be able to view pictures of your child participating in daily activities throughout the day. I try to send all pictures and videos to your email throughout the day. If I am unable to, you will still
receive them at the end of the day. All children are assessed according to their age level throughout the year. Parent conferences will be held so you are aware of your child’s development. This also helps to determine the school readiness level.
All knives, sharp utensils, tools, medicines and cleaning products are out of the reach of young children. All accessible outlets not in use are covered. We practice fire and disaster drills. I have a written plan for fire escape and shelter in place drills are practiced monthly. All children also know where to go in case of an emergency. I also have a complete first aid kit, first aid training, and a fire extinguisher on hand. I have done all I can to provide a safe environment for your children.
If you are on a weekly payment plan full payment is required for any week in which the child is absent for part of the week.
There will be no charge for any day that the program must be
closed due to an on-site emergency. Your parent account will be credited for the following months tuition payment.
Childcare fees are still due whether your child is in care or not. Please give at least one month notice of any vacations that your child will be taking.
Our childcare will schedule up to two weeks of vacation per year during which time the program will be closed. At least four weeks notice will be given to parents. During daycare closings for vacations of five days or less, tuition is still due. If the daycare will be closed
longer than five days consecutively, childcare fees after five days are waived and credited to your childcare account.
Breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks are served daily. All children may participate in the food program. However, if you would like your child to eat breakfast, they must arrive no later than 9:15 am. It will be you the parent’s responsibility to feed your child/children at home, if you cannot arrive on time. Lunch is served at 12:00 pm. If for any reason your child/children will be dropped off later during the day, it is your responsibility to feed them.
