ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE:
Your child must be brought right into the classroom. The teacher's responsibility begins
when you turn your child over to her and ends when you return to the classroom to pick
up your child. You are required to sign in daily, state where you will be, and who will
be picking up your child. Your promptness in arrival and departure is appreciated by
both your child and the teachers. Parents are requested to phone the school before
class time if your child is unable to attend a day he/she is registered.
By law children can only be released to a responsible adult - those listed on our
entry form (ie; emergency contacts and those authorized to pick up). Please do not
send siblings to pick up your child. The centre may also refuse to release a child to
anyone who appears to be intoxicated.

submitted to ensure the needs of the child are met and maintained.
