Policies & Procedures

 

Welcome to Our School

Beginning preschool is an important step in your child's life and we are excited to partner with you in your child's  education. We hope that your time at our school will be a happy and exciting experience for both you and your child. This handbook has been prepared as an informative guide for Kids 'R' Kids Preschool so parents can know and understand our school's philosophy and policies. Please read it carefully and keep it for future reference. We hope this information will help you and your child to adjust readily and happily at this important time. Kids 'R' Kids Quality Learning Centers are open to children ages 6 weeks to 12 years old without discrimination on the basis of political affiliation, religion, race, color, sex, mental or physical disabilities.  

 

Our Philosophy Mission 

We believe children should be “Hugged First, Then Taught.” 

 

Kids 'R' Kids Learning Academies provide a secure, nurturing, and educational environment for young children; a place for children to bloom into responsible, considerate, and contributing members of society. 

 

Kids 'R' Kids wants all children to have the opportunity to grow physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually by playing, exploring, and learning with others in a fun, safe and  healthy environment. 

 

As a family-owned and operated organization, Kids 'R' Kids welcomes positive family involvement and encourages  a family-teacher approach where the needs of every child comes first to obtain a successful early childhood education. 

 

Equal Opportunity 

This School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, citizenship, handicap or disability or any other legally protected status in regards to admissions or in the administration of its educational policies and administered programs. 

 

This School makes its programs and services accessible to individuals with disabilities. The School welcomes requests for accommodation. The School will attempt to provide reasonable accommodations to qualified students with mental or physical disabilities, to the extent that such a request does not cause a fundamental alteration to the School's programs/curriculum and to the extent that it does not create an undue hardship for the School.  

 

The first step in requesting an accommodation is to provide the Owner with documentation of the condition from a qualified professional, such as a physician, psychiatrist, or psychologist. Upon receipt of such documentation and recommendations, we will communicate with the family in an interactive process to obtain additional information or discuss the circumstances related to the request.  

 

Communication 

Family-School Involvement 

We welcome family input and encourage you to visit your child's classroom and speak with your child's teacher. We have an open door policy at our School and families are encouraged to get involved in their child's classroom. 

 

If you would like to request a conference, please call during School hours to set up a convenient time. Conferences can be requested at any time and may include the teachers, administration or both. 

 

Family Communication Board 

On a daily basis, please check the Family Communication Board in our lobby. 

 

Classrooms and Daily Reports 

Be sure to check your child's cubby box and classroom folder daily for messages, daily reports and artwork. Notices and messages sent by you should be written and submitted to the teacher or front desk staff.  The parent information board in each classroom has calendars, menus, curriculum, state ratio information, and parent resources. 

 

Infants through pre-Kindergarten will have a daily report completed by the classroom teachers to relate the day's events specific to your child.  

 

We welcome any questions and suggestions. If there are family situations that affect your child, please discuss them with your child's teacher or the Director. Remember that any information regarding a personal issue is kept confidential and we are glad to help whenever possible.

Role of Families or Other Caregivers:  Our General Expectations For You 

The relationship between families 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 the growth of the child is our top priority. 

 

Newsletter 

The Newsletter is published monthly, and contains upcoming events and activities throughout the school. You can view the newsletter online at www.kidsrkids12tx.com. 

 

Check-In Computer 

We may use the check-in computer to relay messages to you when you check-in or check-out your child. 

 

Admission and Related Processes 

Enrollment Process 

Families are encouraged to have their children with them the first time they visit the School. It is important that the child and the parent feel absolutely comfortable with our staff and the facility. 

 

To reserve space in our program you must submit a completed application and tuition fee schedule as well as the non-refundable registration fee. Amounts of all fees are found on the fee schedule. 

 

First Day 

On, or prior to, your child's first day of School the following forms must be completed, signed and reviewed by the administrative staff: 

 

• Enrollment Packet (including Application and accompanying forms) 

• Emergency Information Card 

• Copy of Immunization Record 

• Infant Information Form (if applicable) 

 

No child may continue enrollment in School for more than 30 days without a current immunization report. Please let the administrative staff know of any allergies or special dietary requirements prior to your child's first day. 

 

If the information in any of these forms changes during the child's enrollment, families are responsible for  notifying the School in writing of the changes. 

 

Admission and Re-Enrollment 

Admission and, as applicable, re-enrollment, is dependent on the following:  

 

All fees, application, and other required forms must be submitted, completed and evaluated. Any false or misleading statements made verbally or on any submitted documents shall be grounds for denial of admission or immediate dismissal.

 

All financial obligations must have been met in a timely manner.  

 

The Director reserves the right to place children in a classroom, to determine the teachers for a particular classroom  and to determine whether a particular child continues to meet the School's requirements.  

 

Withdrawal  

Families are responsible for initiating the child withdrawal process.  Families will need to submit a two week notice of withdrawal, in writing, to the administrative staff.  Full tuition is due during this time whether your child attends or not.  No adjustments will be made to tuition during this time. 

 

Dismissals 

The staff will work with each child to meet the needs of that child and every effort will be made to provide a positive learning experience. 

 

However, this School reserves the right to ask families to make alternative arrangements for care 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 program or poses an unsafe situation for the child or other children in the School, alternative arrangements may be required. 

 

A dismissal will only be considered after careful consideration. If the School determines that our program is not a successful match, families will be given referral information to assist in the transition to a program better suited to the family's needs. 

 

If you, the 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 from our School.
