Severe Weather, Fire or Emergency Situations
If an emergency situation develops such as severe weather, fire, physical damage to the building, or any other situation that poses a threat, the safety of the children is our first concern.

The school is equipped with a weather band radio, a fire alarm sprinkler system and fire extinguishers. Fire and severe weather drills are conducted according to state and county regulations or every 30 days.

If there is an emergency situation and it becomes necessary to close the school, parents will be notified to make arrangements for early pick-up.

If there is inclement weather and it is determined that the school will not open, parents will be instructed by the school regarding TV or radio stations providing closing information.

If an emergency situation develops and it is determined that the building or premises are unsafe, your child(ren) will be transported to a safe location.

Parents will be notified of the situation and you will be required to pick up your child(ren) as soon as possible.

Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco
In our effort to provide a safe, healthy environment in which each child may grow and develop, we maintain a school free of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco use.

The use or presence of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco by school staff, parents, or anyone visiting the school is prohibited in the building or anywhere on the grounds.

The use or presence of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco is prohibited during any outing or field trip, as well as on any vehicle used by the school to transport your child(ren).

Discipline
At Kids ´R´ Kids Learning Academies, we use a method of "redirection" to guide your child(ren) toward appropriate behavior. If a child is engaged in behavior not conducive to a safe and happy learning environment, the teacher will "redirect" the child toward appropriate behavior. (The use of physical punishment and harsh language is prohibited.)

Parents or guardians are required to abide by the Kids `R´ Kids Discipline Policy any time they are on school property.

Dismissal Policy
The staff will work with each child to fulfill the needs of that child, and every effort will be made to provide a positive learning experience. Special needs will be accommodated when possible.

Kids ´R´ Kids in Marietta reserves the right to ask parents to make alternative daycare arrangements if it is determined that a child´s needs cannot be met, or the child has not adjusted to group care provided by the school. In the event behavior becomes disruptive to the childcare program or becomes a problem that poses an unsafe situation for the child or other children in the daycare class, alternative arrangements will be required.

If you, as a parent, are uncooperative in completing and returning forms, fail to pay your tuition on time, fail to follow any state or county regulations, or fail to follow any Kids ´R´ Kids Policy or Procedure, it may be necessary to dismiss your child(ren) from the school.

The Parent`s Role
The relationship between parents and school staff is vital to the success of a child´s experience. A partnership must be formed the first day with open communication and understanding that the development and growth of the child is our top priority.

Parents can assist and help ensure a smooth childcare transition by doing the following:

Sign children in and out at the front desk and then escort them to their designated class. Have all forms completed promptly. Update daycare forms as needed when changes occur (i.e. new phone number, address, etc.). Keep staff informed of special needs or changes that might affect your child´s behavior. Notify the school if your child is ill. Do not bring an ill child to the school. Notify the school if your child will be absent. Notify the school if you will be later than usual picking up your child. Provide a change of clothes marked with your child´s name. Children should be dressed properly for the weather and play. Do not allow children to bring toys. Participate in the school´s special activities. Attend scheduled parent meetings and conferences. Ask questions and address concerns as they arise.

Kids ´R´ Kids of East Cobb provides Marietta childcare services and reserves the right to change or revise any childcare policies, procedures, or tuition/fee schedules when deemed necessary. Written notification will be provided to parents.
