Medical Issues
MEDICATION
If your child needs medication, we will call you immediately. It will only be administered with your verbal presmission or if you have already signed our consent form allowing us to do so. On a day to day basis, if youe child requires a daily medication, you may call to remind us at the time it should be administered, along with having written down on our Administration of Medication Record sheets. All children are required to have labeled fever medication left in our medicine cabinet. Should a child have an illness that requires a doctor's care, a doctor's slip should be given to the daycare when the child is healthy enough to return and parents are required to fill out the ncessary forms provided by staff.

EPIPENS & PUFFERS
Please make us aware of these and any written procedures we should follow.

CHILD ABUSE
We are required, by law, to report any form of suspected child abuse to the Department of Social Development.

ILLNESS
We are under strict guidelines concerning illness, should your child have any of the following: vomiting, dirrahea, fever or communicable disease, you will be notified immediately and asked to come and get them within the hour. Depending on the severity, we will isolate then until pick up. We must be made aware of your child's condition by way of a doctor's note and we'll follow the appropriate time factors as to when he/she can return. Pleas fill out all necessary return forms.



Parental Duties
Please provide all diapers/pull-ups and wipes for children 12 months to potty trained. Provide any written instructions for yout infant concerning feedings.

Accompany your children to and from Family Ties and be sure they are signed in and out on our attendance sheets, make sure they are under adult supervision before leaving. Please wash your child's hands upon arrival to help prevent diesase. Please be certain your child/children have been signed out and after pick-up from the After School Centre each and every day.

It will help us greatly if you would be sure to call and inform us if your child will not be attending their scheduled attendance. We can keep attendance records and monitor our ratios much more accurately.



Discipline
We believe in positive techniques of guidance including:



Enrollment & Discharge from Family Ties
Prior to enrollment, Penny would personally like to give you and your family a tour of our facility. Pamphlets of our guidelines will be provided and also a copy of our menu. If you choose to register your child/children, you will be asked to complete a Child Profile, provide a copy of their immunization card and sign the necessary consent forms prior to the staring date. All children are placed in groups according to their ages so we can provide 'age appropriate' activities.

All forms and documents are available for download from our website, in either PDF or HTML formats, suitable for printing on your home printer.

WE REQUIRE 2 WEEKS NOTICE IN WRITING WHEN REMOVING YOUR CHILD FROM OUR FACILITY. IF YOU DO NOT GIVE THE APPROPRIATE NOTICE, YOU WILL BE EXPECTED TO PAY FOR THE 2 WEEKS IN FULL.



Personal Belongings
All children will need indoor slippers, change of clothing for their cubbie and weather appropriate items. We do not allowfood, jewelry, coins, hair accessories or toys brough into Family Ties. The only exception to bring in a toy is each Friday for "Show and Tell" (ages 3-5). There are to be no phones, Blackberrys, iPods or electronics of any kind brought into Family Ties to enjoy their time with us.



Evacuation Procedures
We have evacuation plans posted at our location and will practice monthly fire drills with the children. We are lucky to have the convenience of an exit door on all of the classrooms for easy andquick evacuation. Should we need to evacuate the premises for a longer period of time, the children will be take to the Carleton Community Centre until parents can make arrangements to pick them up. If you have any concerns or quesyions, please don't hesitate to ask.



Storm Days, Holidays & Vacation
STORM DAY/TEACHER'S CONFERENCES/PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
We will offer full day programming for our after schoolers from 6:30am - 6:00pm for any days the kids are not in school with the exception of statutory holidays. (In which the facility will be closed.)

HOLIDAYS
Parents will be expected to pay for absent days and also the following holidays (part-time children will only pay for these if it is a scheduled day). We believe this won't be an issue because most of you are paid for these days from your employers, so it gives me the opportunity to offer the same to my staff.

NEW YEARS DAY, FAMILY DAY, GOOD FRIDAY, VICTORIA DAY, CANADA DAY, NEW BRUNSWICK DAY, LABOUR DAY, THANKSGIVING DAY, REMEMBERANCE DAY, CHRISTMAS EVE WE CLOSE AT 1:00 PM, CHRISTMAS DAY, NEW YEAR'S EVE DAY WE CLOSE AT 3:00PM.
