Drop Off / Pick Up
We require that a parent, guardian, or approved caregiver must sign in and sign out for their child at drop off and pickup. Children will be released only to authorized persons whose names are on the emergency sheet. These names may be revised at anytime by the parent in writing. If the authorized person picking up the child is unknown by staff, s/he will be asked to show identification.
Please do your best to arrive at the correct drop off time each day. All students are expected to be at CP at 10:00 AM and no later so student may all participate in Morning Meeting together. We find that a timely arrival is important for a smooth transition from home to school. Any late arrivals need to be cleared with CP. If late arrivals becomes a pattern, the Director reserves the right to discuss plan to ensure timeliness. Late arrivals are disruptive and can be upsetting to the children who are actively engaged in activities.
I/We understand that the there is a 5 minute grace period for pickup after your child’s daily scheduled pickup time. Each minute after that 5 minute grace period will be charged $1.00/minute. Approved escorts are the only person(s) that can pick up a child at dismissal.
Regularity in Schedule
It is important for children to arrive and leave the program at the regularly scheduled time. Children need the security of knowing that they will be picked up at the usual time. If you will be changing your hours (i.e. picking your child up earlier than usual), then please notify one of the Teaching Staff.
Children will be released only to authorized persons whose names are on the emergency sheet. These names may be revised at anytime by the parent in writing. If the authorized person picking up the child is unknown by staff, s/he will be asked to show photo identification.
Please let your teacher know if your child is going to be absent. An arrival after the 15 minutes grace period or longer requires notification prior to arrival.
If your child will be absent because they are sick with a contagious illness, please let the our staff know so that other families can be alerted to look for symptoms in their children. Please note that in light of our policies and State regulations, we maintain full confidentiality of the identity of child who has illness.
