School Age Policies and Procedures
Immunization & Health Care Summary The State Of Minnesota requires that all children enrolled in childcare setting have current immunization records and health care summaries. Health care summaries need to be completed by the child’s primary care physician; they also need to be renewed when children move into the school age room.
Take Home Notes Once the children move up into the school age program, teachers will no longer fill out daily notes for parents. We will communicate verbally at pick-up and drop off times.
Labels Please label all of your child’s belongings with their first and last name or first and last initial. Labeling belongings helps cut down on lost or mistaken items in the cubby area.
Nap Time All children are required to rest on their cot for at least a half hour. If a child does not fall asleep after a half hour we do provide them with quiet activities to do on their cot. We do request that parents of children who do not regularly take a nap provide their child with a naptime bag.
Show & Share & Toys From Home The school age classroom has show & share on Fridays. We do not allow toys from home on any other days.
Parent Board We enjoy when parents check the parent board and parent pockets as much as possible. We tend to post valuable information on the board and in the pockets.
Outside Play The children also get the opportunity to get outside twice a day weather permitted. Our general weather guidelines for going outside to play are ninety degrees or less in the summer and twenty degrees or higher in the winter months.
Winter & Summer Apparel In the winter parents are responsible for supplying their children with boots, snow pants, coat, mittens and a hat. If possible it is always helpful to have two pairs of mittens on hand, as we do go out in both the morning and the afternoon and they sometimes get wet. In the summer we discourage the use of flip flop sandals as foot wear, if your children enjoy wearing flip flops please bring alternative footwear for outside play.
School Buses Transportation is provided by the school district. Parents will need to notify the bus company and arrange for pick-up and drop off of their children.
