Children are encouraged but not forced to eat healthy nutritious meals. Whole grain and no sugar. It is your responsibility to notify me of any allergies or special diet needs your child may have.

It is your responsibility to provide infant formula.
Limited television viewing is permitted. Children will only be allowed to watch child appropriate shows/movies. They are NEVER required to sit and watch television and it will never be offered in place of free play or learning activities. We do have days where we will have Movies and activities around them.
Children will be taken on outings and field trips to local places in the general area on Fridays. Some large Field trips are generally planned in advance but there may be times you will be notified on the day of an outing. It is not mandatory that your child participate in these activities but if you choose not to allow your child on these trips it will be your responsibility to find alternative care during the time we are away. All children will be restrained with the proper life saving device (either a seat belt or a car seat). However if you choose not to send your child you still pay your weekly rate.
I am required by law to report any suspected child abuse including: verbal, sexual, physical, emotional or suspected neglect.
Trial Period & Termination:
A two week trial period is given for children to adjust to child care. If after two weeks you are not satisfied for any reason you are able to terminate this contract. In the event I feel that your child is not adjusting to my home, the other children or myself I also am able to terminate this contract. After the trial period, care cannot be terminated or you can not withdraw without giving a two weeks written notice, unless I feel you or your child is a danger to me, my family or the other kids in my care, then it can be done on the spot. But you must give notice after trial period in writing or fees will be charged until such a time as you do or court action. A one week deposit will be charged at this time to go toward last week of care. Deposit is same amount as one weeks payment.
