Arrival and Departure

Upon enrollment parents will be issued a key fob that will access the side entrance of the facility. A fob must be used in order to unlock the door. Additional fobs may be purchased for $10.00. Once inside the building, parents must sign the child in on the computer monitor at the side reception desk then escort the child to his/her classroom. If the parent does not have a key fob or the fob does not unlock the side door, the child must enter the facility through the front office.

At pick-up time parents may enter through the side door and sign their child out for the afternoon. If someone other than a parent or regular caretaker picks up the child a valid picture ID will be required and the person’s name must be on the child’s information card. Parents are asked to notify the front office if someone other than himself or herself or the regular caretaker will pick-up the child.
