I am required to be within sight or hearing of an infant, toddler or preschooler at all times so that the caregiver is capable of intervening.
Occassionally your child may need to be picked up from care by someone other than a parent/guardian. Unlesss the names are listed on your emergency contact forms, your child will not be released. In case of an emergency, please provide a reliable list of people to reach.
If you are legally separated or divorced, a copy of your custody papers must be submitted upon registration. This is for your protection, as well as the daycare. If a non-custodial parent/guardian has access which falls within the hours of the daycare, a written schedule of access is to be given to the daycare.
Many families today are going through separation or divorce and parent/guardian are expected to help the child(ren) in the transition by informing the daycare of the custody agreement. In cases of joint custody, I would like to know the child’s schedule so we can relate to the daily or weekly cycle of co-parent/guardian. When one parent/guardian has custody, I will release the child to the other parent/guardian according to the scheduled access agreed upon by those parent/guardian and filed at the daycare. Both parent/guardian have access to the child(ren) unless we have a written notice to the contrary. Custody agreements are kept at the daycare.
Parents in Daycare:
You have the right to stop in anytime during your child’s regular daycare hours. You do not need a reason. You are welcome to pop in anytime.
