Can my child bring special toys into the classroom?
SCA provides all the necessary materials for our program; your child does not need to bring in anything. Each child does have a cubby to keep personal belongings in; however, we do not recommend sending in special/expensive toys with your child—these have a tendency to get lost or broken. Although we try to monitor children’s belongings, our main concern is the safety and engagement of our students; we cannot guarantee the security of any child’s belongings and will not be held responsible for lost or damaged items.

What if my child becomes ill?
If your child becomes ill at school, the classroom teacher will separate the child from the group and make him/her comfortable on a mat while we notify you to pick him/her up. Please keep your emergency contact numbers updated so that you may respond as quickly as possible to the needs of your child. Children may return to the program after being symptom and fever free for 24 hours. Please do not send a sick child to school. If a child arrives with symptoms of illness, the child will not be permitted to stay. Please notify us if your child becomes ill and will not be attending that day. We ask that parents notify us when their child contracts a communicable disease. The preschool will notify all other parents about any communicable disease outbreaks (This does not name the child involved just the classroom to indicate highest exposure). A child will not be permitted to attend preschool when he or she has vomited or had diarrhea during the previous 24 hours.
What if I am late picking my child up?
If a parent or authorized person is late in picking the child up, a late fee of $1 for every 1 minutes past 6pm will be applied. If a child is consistently picked up late the school may take further action.
What should I do if my child cries when I leave?
Most children calm down in the first five minutes after their parent leaves. If you say your good-by to your child and would like a report from us just stay in the hall, your car or give us the number where we can reach you and we will be glad to report on your child’s behavior for the first few days. Anxiety also applies to children going through difficulties such as, but not limited to: nightmares, death in the family, divorce, illness, new baby, or simply a change in routine, etc. Please notify us of any changes in your child. All information is kept confidential.
