Each day will be filled with both indoor and outdoor activities. It is important that your child be provided with washable play clothes that can withstand food spills, paint, sand, and water play. Please be sure to label all articles of clothing that might be removed throughout the day (i.e. jackets, sweaters, hats, and any extra clothing). In addition, your child’s shoes need to cover his or her whole foot and must be worn at all times. If your child loses any of his or her items, please check with the school’s director. All locations keep a lost-and-found basket for a period of three weeks.
Daily Infant Care Record
Please let us know if there are any special instructions for the day by filling out a Daily Infant Care Record. This will help inform the Primary Caregiver of how they can best meet your child’s needs at the center and relay information about your child’s day.
Toddler Tales are usually issued daily to let you know how your child’s day went.
Needs and Service Plan
The infant’s and toddler’s needs are changing rapidly. The Needs and Services Plan is updated quarterly to provide information for their primary Caregiver. This form will help meet your child’s needs at the center and work closely with your child’s routines.
Hours of Operation
The complete school hours are 7:30am to 5:30pm, Monday through Friday. Full-day and half-day programs are available, but please note that there will be overtime charges assessed for each 15 minutes you are late.
Our children receive two nutritious snacks each day. One will be provided in the morning, and another will be provided in the afternoon. A detailed snack menu will be posted at each location.
Breakfast brought from home will be served with the center opens at 8am. However, if a child misses breakfast for any reason, the morning snack is provided at 9am.
For an additional charge, we offer a daily, nutritious hot lunch at most of our locations. Refrigerators and microwaves are also available at each center for lunch brought from home.
Please do not send food items that could cause choking such as:
- Peanuts and/or whole nuts
- Whole grapes
- Chunks of hot dogs
- Fruits with seeds or with tough skins
- Individually prepared formula bottles must be brought in daily, not in one large container.
- We are not allowed to accept frozen breast milk. Breast milk should be thawed and ready to serve.
The caregivers will assist you in labeling and dating all bottles.
Your child’s day will be very full, so children up to the age of five have a daily scheduled rest period. For children ages birth through 12 months, the rest period is scheduled according to their “Needs and Service Plan.” Infants are offered a morning and/or afternoon nap. Preschool-aged children are provided with a rest period between 1-1/2 and 2 hours long. All children are encouraged to rest quietly during this time. Rest items should be labeled with your child’s first and last name in permanent ink. Cot sheets and blankets must be laundered weekly. State regulations require that the following items be sent to school for your child to use during nap time:
- 1 fitted sheet
- 1 small blanket
- 1 drawstring bag, backpack, or pillow case to store the sheet and blanket
Action Day Primary Plus provides all linens, sheets, and blankets for infants from birth through 18 months old.
