School Hours

Our center is open from 7:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. If you are late picking up your child, you will be charged $1.00 per minute. This fee is paid directly to those who waith with your child.

Door Code

Each child is given a code directly attached to their name. You may pick your own code. Your code will be four numbers followed by the # sign. 

* Please do not have your child or siblings open the door with the code. Our door system is in place to add security and if children are opening the door our system security is at risk.

Parents are responsible for walking their child into the center and dropping them off to the classroom.

Anyone can drop a child off at school but only those authroized to pick up can remove a child from our center at any time. If you know a different person is going to pick up, please inform the front desk. Please tell all who come to pick up to carry ID so we can verify their identification.

Lunches

All children will need to bring a cold lunch to school. Please label your child's lunch box. Refrigerators are available in all rooms but Bumble Bees. In our Bumble Bee room, it is recommend to have a lunch equipped with an ice pack. We may warm lunches for 30 seconds or less. We are prohibited from fully cooking any meal in our center. This is based on the regulations provided us by the Washoe County Health Department.

Naptime

Children enrolled in early childcare programs are required by state law to be given a rest period. Some of our friends need a nap while others just a rest. Children rest on a foam mat on the floor. Please bring in a crib sheet and a blanket for your child to rest with. Cribs sheets help your child from directly touching the vinyl mat surface. Please take the sheet and blanke home on Friday to be laundered and then return them on Monday. We will help your child settle down by patting their back and listening to soft music.

Cubbies

Every child is assigned a cubby where all necessary items are stored. Please make sure all items are labeled with your child's name. Please check with your teacher to see what items are needed in your child's classroom.
