What is the illness policy?
If the child gets ill while at our center and it is contagious (fever, wet cough, infections), he/she will go in an isolated area with a staff member until parents pick up (or other pick up person on list), as soon as possible. A doctor’s note is needed in order to return.

 

Children are to be kept at home for at least 24 hours after temperature is normal.

 

Children with diarrhea must be kept home until the child has had 3 or 4 normal bowel movements. (Usually 24 hours after first normal bowel movement).

 

If a child is sent home from the center, you will be given a check list of why he/she was sent home which gives guidelines when your child may return.


Is this Center a nut safe facility?


​A Place Like Home is a peanut and tree nut safe facility. We have a number of children with peanut and/or tree nut allergies. Please carefully review food labels of any foods you send in to the center to ensure they are “nut safe” and have no warning labels of potential peanut or tree nut traces to help eliminate any potential risk to children with severe nut allergies.

The Infant Program is set up on an individual basis, according to the schedule provided by the parent/guardian to the center and designated to enrich the infant’s developmental skills.

Times are flexible: Infants receive bottles & naps as needed, diapers are changed every 2 hours or as needed.

How am I going to know about my child's daily routine?

A Place Like Home keeps our families updated through an application called Brightwheel. This app is available for Android and iOS devices and it is a great way to keep you posted about your child routine, daily projects and activities. It includes real-time photos and feed of activities throughout the day, such as nap and meal times. Stay in touch with the teachers and strengthen school learning with activities at home. You can also invite grandparents, nannies, and friends – with control over what they can do and see on the app.
