The following are questions that most adult family members have regarding the Center's policies. More details can be found in the Handbook, the Health Care Policies and Procedures handout, the bulletin board in each classroom, the parent information board in the hallway, and the center newsletter.
What is the program's philosophy?
1. To provide a culturally diverse atmosphere where children learn through social interaction.
2. To provide a stimulating environment filled with age-appropriate materials, which encourage exploration, trial-and-error learning, and the development of competence.
3. To provide an atmosphere where it is understood that family members are and will always be the most important people in the life of a child.
4. To support the individuals who are the strength of our program — the professionals who work with the children.
Our mission is to empower children with positive skills that will help them become capable adults. Our motto is where the whole child grows.
What are the center hours and what time should I arrive each day?
The center is currently open from 6:15 a.m. to 6:15 p.m. All children must arrive at the center on or before 9:00 a.m. If a situation arises where a child is going to arrive late (medical appointment or family emergency), the adult family member must call the center before 8:50 a.m. If the child arrives after 9:00 a.m., and the adult family member does not inform the staff in a timely manner, on three occurrences the child will be excluded from care on the fourth occurrence.
What are the transportation and pick-up arrangements?
The Center does not provide transportation to and from home. Transportation is only provided for class fieldtrips through First Student Bus Company or Metro. The buses provided by First Student have integrated booster seats to meet Washington State child car safety requirements. See the Handbook for more details.
