If your child becomes ill while at school:

when possible, your child will be evaluated by the Physician Assistant on church staff

you will be contacted to make arrangements to take your child home.



If your child is injured while at school:

your child will immediately be evaluated by either the Program Director or the Physician Assistant on church staff

if the Program Director or Physician Assistant determine that the injury is a medical emergency, appropriate first aid/CPR will be begun by those appropriately trained, 911 will be notified, and the parents will be notified immediately

if the Program Director or Physician Assistant determine that the injury is serious enough to warrant medical attention, or if the injury prevents the child from participating in activities, the parents will be notified immediately

if the injury is considered mild (minor scrapes or bruises), the parents will be notified at the end of the school day

teachers will report all injuries to the parents in an accident report form


Immunization Records

Immunization records/charts are required to be kept on file in order for each child to be and stay enrolled in our program.


These records are needed at the beginning of each school year.


Please turn these in to the Director to be added to your child’s file.

Late Policy

Should a child not be picked up on time (BY 1:30pm), our late policy will go in effect.  Obviously, we know that situations arise where you could be held up or caught in traffic.  In this case, you must call the office to inform us of this situation before 1:20pm.


Our teachers have other responsibilities in the afternoon and cannot be responsible for supervising your child after 1:35pm.  If there is a parent that is consistently late (after 1:30pm), they will be charged $1 per minute for each minute after 1:35pm.  A note will be sent home from the director with your child informing you of the late charge.  It can be paid the following month with the monthly registration fee.
