Severe Weather, Fire or Emergency Situations
If an emergency situation develops such as severe weather, fire, physical damage to the building, or any other situation that poses a threat, the safety of the children is our first concern.

The Center is equipped with a weather band radio, a fire alarm sprinkler system and fire extinguishers. Fire and severe weather drills are conducted according to state and county regulations or every 30 days.

If there is an emergency situation and it becomes necessary to close the Center, parents will be notified to make arrangements for early pickup.

If there is inclement weather and it is determined that the Center will not open, parents will be notified as soon as the information is available.

If an emergency situation develops and it is determined that the building or premises are unsafe, your child(ren) will be transported to a safe location.

Parents will be notified of the situation and you will be required to pickup your child(ren) as soon as possible.

Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco
In our effort to provide a safe, healthy environment for each child to grow and develop, we maintain a Center free of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco use.

The use or presence of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco is prohibited in the building or anywhere on the grounds by Center staff, parents, or anyone visiting the Center.

The use or presence of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco is prohibited during any outing or field trip, as well as, on any vehicle used by the Center to transport your child(ren).

Discipline
At Kids ´R´ Kids Academy Learning Academy we use a method of ´redirection´ to guide your child(ren) toward appropriate behavior. If a child is engaged in behavior not conducive to a safe and happy learning environment, the teacher will ´redirect´ the child toward appropriate behavior. (The use of physical punishment or harsh language is prohibited.)

Parents or guardians are required to abide by the Kids ´R´ Kids Discipline Policy any time they are on Center property.

Dismissal Policy
The staff will work with each child to fulfill the needs of that child, and every effort will be made to provide a positive learning experience. Special needs will be accommodated when possible.

Kids ´R´ Kids Academy reserves the right to ask parents to make alternative arrangements for care if it is determined that a child´s needs cannot be met, or the child has not adjusted to group care provided by the Center. In the event behavior becomes disruptive to the program or becomes a problem that poses an unsafe situation for the child or other children in the class, alternative arrangements will be required.

If you, as a parent, are uncooperative in completing and returning forms, fail to pay your tuition on time, fail to follow any state or county regulations, or fail to follow any Kids ´R´ Kids Policy or Procedure, it may be necessary to dismiss your child(ren) from the Center.

The Parent`s Role
The relationship between parents and Center staff is vital to the success of a child´s experience. A partnership must be formed the first day, with open communication and understanding that the development and growth of the child is our top priority.

Parents can assist and help ensure a smooth transition by doing the following:

   Sign children in and out at the front desk and then escort them to their
       designated class.

   Have all forms completed promptly.

   Update forms, as needed, when changes occur (i.e. new phone number,
       address, etc.)

   Keep staff informed of special needs or changes that might affect your child´s
       behavior.

   Notify the Center if your child is ill.

   Do not bring an ill child to the Center.

   Notify the Center if your child will be absent.

   Notify the Center if you will be later than usual picking up your child.

   Provide a change of clothes marked with your child´s name (Center is not
      responsible for lost clothing).

   Children should be dressed properly for the weather and play.

   Do not allow children to bring toys.

   Participate in the Center´s special activities.

   Attend scheduled parent meetings and conferences.

   Ask questions and address concerns as they arise.

Kids ´R´ Kids Academy reserves the right to change or revise any policies, procedures, or tuitions/fees schedules when deemed necessary. Written notification will be provided to parents.
