Tomorrow’s World’s customer base is comprised of traditional and non-traditional families from totally diverse socio-economic backgrounds. The center cares for children from infancy through kindergarten age. Parents are encouraged to be active in the program whenever possible. Feedback and input from parents is always appreciated and close, daily communication is essential in the best interest of the child(ren).
Curriculum is theme based and teacher directed in the tiny tot, toddler and preschool classes. Goals and objectives are defined for all ages and activities focus on all developmental domains; social, emotional, physical and cognitive. For safety reasons, the center does not transport so only “walking” field trips are planned. During the month of May, a variety of “Community Helpers” visit the center and share presentations and demonstrations with the children.
HEALTH AND SAFETY
An initial health assessment must be on file within 60 days of enrollment. Subsequent updates required are determined by the child’s age and must be on file within a timely manner. Failure to do so may result in the child’s exclusion from care.
Parents will be called if a child is running a fever of 101 degrees or higher with a behavior change. A fever of 101 degrees requires immediate pick up.
Antibiotics should be prescribed every 12 hours, so administration at daycare is not necessary.
Children must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to daycare. The only exception is if there is a doctor’s note stating they may return. Regardless, a doctor’s note is always appreciated whenever possible.
Children may not attend if they are contagious or exhibiting symptoms of vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat with fever & swollen glands, and conjunctivitis.
Other symptoms that may preclude the child’s attendance or require the need for the child to be picked up may be determined at the director’s discretion.
Parents are responsible for all medical expenses associated with injury or illness that takes place at the center.
