Statement of Services (Contract)

ADMISSION & ENROLLMENT: Upon enrollment in our program, each child must supply a current immunization record.  Your child will not be able to attend without it.  Also due at enrollment are the signed Emergency Card, Child Registration, Tuition and Policy Agreement, and Statement of Services.  Enrollment will not be guaranteed without payment of the registration fee and the first week’s tuition.  Just KID-ing Learning Center requires a two week written notice of withdrawal and parents will be responsible for tuition during that period whether or not the child attends.  Just KID-ing Learning Center reserves the right to terminate our agreement at any time if we determine that we are unable to meet your child’s needs.  We do not discriminate based on ethnicity or disability.

DRESS FOR PLAY: It is your child’s job to explore his/her environment.  Sometimes that exploration can be messy, and no matter how hard we try to cover clothes, no one finds dirt more easily than a child.  Please dress your child in comfortable, washable clothing that your child can easily manage so we can encourage self-reliance.  Elastic waisted pants, not buttons or zippers, pullover or button up shirts and suspenders that do not need to be unbuckled are best.  Remember that one piece or belted outfits can be difficult for children to manage with they are in a hurry to use the bathroom.  All children must wear closed toe shoes at all times for safety purposes.

DROP-OFF / PICK-UP PROCEDURES: Just KID-ing Learning Center follows state mandated regulations regarding signing children in and out of school.  Remember that your signature is your permission for your child to be here.  You must accurately record the date and time of arrival and pick-up, as well as provide your complete signed name.  Initials will not be accepted.  We will not release your child to anyone who is not previously authorized by you on your emergency card.  Anyone picking up your child will be asked for identification.  The sign in/out book will be randomly checked to ensure that this regulation is being followed.  A charge of $1.00 will be imposed for each failure to sign in or out.

EMERGENCIES: All serious accidents and injuries are reported to the director, who will then contact the parents and/or emergency services if urgent attention is needed.  Parents will be notified within 30 minutes be telephone and within 24 hours in writing.

EXTRA CLOTHING: Please send an extra pair of “accident” clothing in a small Ziploc bag labeled with your child’s first and last name.  Extra clothes are important because children without clean clothes may be excluded from activities for sanitary reasons.

FIELD TRIPS: We may take field trips throughout the year as a supplement to the school experience of your child.  A signed permission slip will be required for your child to participate.  Special fees may be charged as necessary. 

GUIDANCE IN THE CLASSROOM: Good programs for young children should have a good discipline place to be successful.  Some things that contribute to a good discipline plan include room arrangement, appropriate equipment and materials (both in choice and amount), respect and consideration for others, and the opportunity to constructively express feelings.  Discipline is a part of learning, and will be handled in a positive manner.  We will do this through the following steps:
     1.        Explanation of expected behavior
     2.        Suggestions of alternative acceptable behavior / Redirection
     3.        Removal from the situation for a short period of time

HOLIDAYS:Just KID-ing Learning Center will be closed for Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and the day after, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.  Full tuition rates will still be in effect for those weeks.  If care is needed and we are available, arrangements may be made for care on these days at an additional charge.  We will be open during regular business hours for all other holidays, unless notification is given at least two weeks in advance.

ILLNESS: For the protection of all children, your child should be kept at home if he/she shows any of the following symptoms: fever, diarrhea, vomiting, rash, colored nasal discharge.  Please notify the facility if your child has been exposed to a contagious illness.  If the child becomes ill during the school day, the parent or emergency contact will be called to pick the child up from school.  Children must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.

INFORMATION: There is a bulletin board posted near the door which will contain important information.  Additional information and fliers may be attached to your child’s sign in sheet.

INJURIES: A certain number of minor bumps and bruises are to be expected as children grow and explore.  We do our very best to maintain the facility and outdoor areas to keep them in safe condition.  All staff members are trained in first aid and CPR.  A first aid kit is kept on the premises for these minor accidents.  An accident report will be filled out and discussed with the parent for each injury.

LATE PICK-UP FEE: Any child left longer than 6 hours for part time, or 10 hours for full time will be charged $10.00 per hour starting at the beginning of each hour.  This does not apply to families with previous agreements made during the enrollment process.

LIABILITY: Just KID-ing Learning Center is covered by the required liability insurance to meet state requirements.

MEALS: Children will be provided two nutritious meals and snacks per day.  If, for any reason, your child requires additional meals or snacks an additional food charge will be added to your account of $5.00 per day.

MEDICATION: We strongly prefer that all medication be administered at home.  However, when necessary, we will administer prescription medication ONLY from a pharmacy labeled bottle.  Medication will be given at lunchtime only, unless prior arrangements have been made with the director.

PARENT INVOLVEMENT AND RESPONSIBILITIES: Parents are always welcome to visit and participate in our activities as long as your child is not having a difficult time adjusting.  Some children are fine with parents dropping in and out, but new students may have an especially hard time understanding that it is not time to go home every time the parent visits.  It may be best to limit your visits to drop-off and pick-up times until your child is comfortable with our routine.  A discussion with the director is recommended to determine the best approach for your child.

PICK-UP: We will ONLY release your child to individuals authorized on your child’s Emergency Card.  Written consent is required in advance when anyone not listed will be picking up your child.  Telephone, email or fax authorization will not be accepted.

REGISTRATION FEE: A non-refundable registration fee of $25.00 each is due upon enrollment.

RETURNED CHECKS: A $35.00 fee will be charged on all returned checks.

SCHOOL HOURS: Just KID-ing Learning Center is open from 6:00am to 6:00pm Monday through Friday.  Days and hours may be negotiable with prior approval by the director.  Please see your child’s registration card for the specific details of your child’s program.

SPECIAL FEES: Special fees may be charged for any additional programming offered including field trips.  I understand that I will be given the option to have my child participate in that program.

SPECIAL NEEDS: Children with special needs are happily accepted at Just KID-ing Learning Center upon evaluation to determine whether staff is able to meet the needs of your child.

SUPERVISION OF VISITORS: All visitors will be supervised by a staff member at all times.

TOYS/SHARE DAY: Friday is share day.  Children are encouraged to bring something to share with the rest of the class.  Sharing and taking turns is often difficult for young children.  We encourage the children to share all of the school toys on a daily basis, but share day is an opportunity to share personal items.  Share day is also an opportunity to gain self-confidence and expand language skills.  This can be an exciting event, pictures, details of a family trip, or even a favorite toy.  Remember that other children must be permitted to share the toy.  A child who is unable to share his/her toy will be asked to leave it in a safe place until pick-up time.  Please do not allow your child to bring toys to school at any other time.  Young children may bring only one toy or stuffed animal for naptime.  This toy will be kept in a safe place during the remainder of the day.

TRANSPORTATION:Transportation to and from this facility is the sole responsibility of the parent.  We may provide previously arranged transportation at the discretion of the director.  You will be notified in writing of any field trips or programs that may require transportation of your child.  Written parental permission will be required if transportation is provided.

TUITION: Tuition is due and payable on the first day your child attends each week.  Child care tuition is to be paid on a weekly basis except by prior approval of the director.  Tuition not paid in full by pick-up on the first day of care each week is subject to a $10.00 late fee and a loss of any discounts.  Any child left over 6 hours for part time enrollment or over 10 hours for full time enrollment will be charged a care rate of $10 per hour at the beginning of each hour, except with prior approval be director.  Children will not be permitted to attend school if tuition is not current.  A fee of 50% will be charged on any unpaid balances requiring collection and/or legal services.  There is no provision for refund of tuition due to a child’s absence.

VACATIONS: After six months of continuous enrollment, each child enrolled full-time is entitled to two weeks of vacation time per year without any charge.  Notice must be given at least two weeks prior to the vacation.  You may take additional vacation time, however you will be responsible for full tuition rates.  The owner of Just KID-ing Learning Center reserves the right to take up to two weeks of vacation annually.  If the owner is unavailable for any period of time, an appropriate substitute care provider will be available.

WITHDRAWAL: I understand that I must give Just KID-ing Learning Center a two week written notice of my intention to withdraw my child and that I will be responsible for tuition during that two week period even if my child does not attend.
