Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco
In our effort to provide a safe, healthy environment for each child to grow and develop, we maintain a School free of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco use.

The staff will work with each child to fulfill the needs of that child, and every effort will be made to provide a positive learning experience. Special needs will be accommodated when possible.

If you, as a parent, are uncooperative in completing and returning forms, fail to pay your tuition on time, fail to follow any state or county regulations, or fail to follow any Kids ´R´ Kids Policy or Procedure, it may be necessary to dismiss your child(ren) from the School.

The Parent`s Role
The relationship between parents and School staff is vital to the success of a child´s experience. A partnership must be formed the first day, with open communication and understanding that the development and growth of the child is our top priority.

Parents can assist and help ensure a smooth transition by doing the following:

Sign children in and out at the front desk and then escort them to their designated class. Have all forms completed promptly. Update forms, as needed, when changes occur (i.e. new phone number, address, etc.) Keep staff informed of special needs or changes that might affect your child´s behavior. Notify the School if your child is ill. Do not bring an ill child to the School.Notify the School if your child will be absent. Notify the School if you will be later than usual picking up your child. Provide a change of clothes marked with your child´s name (School is not responsible for lost clothing). Children should be dressed properly for the weather and play. Do not allow children to bring toys unless specifically requested by their teacher. Participate in the School´s special activities. Attend scheduled parent meetings and conferences. Ask questions and address concerns as they arise.
