The Kids Are Planning
New and Exciting
in 2014 So Keep
Day Care Diseases
We are looking forward to another great year! We have so many
exciting things to look forward to. Here are some
Medicine/Pacifiers/Sippy Cups/Bottles/Change of Clothes
Each infant will have a
cubby in the kitchen to store small items. All Medicines, creams,
and sun screens will be labeled with child’s name, doctor’s
instructions with your signature, and dosage instructions. (See
Handbook) These will be kept in the locked closet. Please put
names on all items including bottles, formula, pacifiers, cups,
clothing and blankets. Bottle and cups need to be labeled daily
with name and date. (See Handbook)
Please make sure that you leave the proper change of clothing for
your child (Seasonal). Place these in a zip lock bag with their
name on it. For children 2 and older please place the zip lock bag
in their cubbies . For infants, we will take the bags and place
them in the infant’s closet located in the infant room.
We do the best we can to
sanitize all surfaces/toys, blankets, and cots. However, the best
way to prevent the spread of illnesses is to isolate the sick to
avoid contaminating others. Please be considerate of all of us
when deciding whether or not to send your sick child to daycare. It
is a good idea to have a back-up person or two that you can use
when your child is sick.
PLEASE NOTE: if your child has had a fever or
vomiting in the last 24 hours, they may not attend daycare.
For example, if your child had a fever or vomiting the day or even
the night before, please do not send them to daycare, even if you
have medicated them.
A list of our closing
dates for 2014 are on the front of the website.
PLEASE NOTE: As of our January 1, 2008 policy, we will not provide
alternative daycare arrangements when the center is officially
closed. We will not be liable for any incidents that may take
place while we are closed.
Please take a moment to
update any changes in phone numbers, addresses, emergency contact
information, and shot records.
Tuition fee is payable
in advance of service, due every Monday morning for the present
week or you can pay one month in advance on the first Monday of
the month. After that Wednesday, a $5.00 PER DAY late charge will
be applied for each day of non-payment. Failure to pay tuition
will result in termination and action to collect money due. (See
Disenrollment/ Termination Policy).
LATE FEE PICKUP
There is a charge of $15.00 per 30 minutes for late pick
up. Late fees must be added to the following week’s tuition which
is due the first day your child returns for the week. Please refer
to your contract to find out what your tuition hours are. Regardless
of what time you drop off your child you will still need to pick
them up at their normal tuition hours. If at anytime you need
to redo your contract hours please do so asap.
HOURS OF OPERATION
SCCS’ will be open
Monday through Friday year round from 6:30 am until 5:30 pm. (See
Closings/Early releases) If for any reason you will need to drop
off your child AFTER 9:30 am please call. We may be going on field
trips or walks when the weather is good and no one will be at the

DEVELOPMENT AND VACATIONS (See Closings/Early
We will be closed two
weeks out of the year. These dates are located on the front page
of our website: www.sistersccs.com.
We will notify or remind you of closing dates in advance so that
you can plan accordingly. Parents will be charged full rate for
scheduled closings and any days closed due to inclement weathers.
We request a two week
notice prior to your child’s disenrollment from the SCCS. This is
to be paid regardless if your child comes or not, so that we have
time to fill that position.
Reason for Termination by SCCS:
If you are more than two weeks (10 Days) behind on your tuition we
can no longer provide care for your child and tuition MUST be paid
within TWO DAYS of termination before legal action takes place.
If you choose to return,
and there is availability, the following will take place:
- A re-enrollment fee of
$35.00 will be charged (non-refundable)
- One week’s tuition in
advance is due on the first day
- That week’s tuition
will be due the first day the child returns
Thanks to each of you for
trusting us with your most valuable possessions. It has been a
pleasure working along side each of you to give our kids the very
2014 is sure to be a great
year with all of your cooperation.
