Requirements

***PLEASE LABEL ALL BELONGINGS WITH YOUR CHILD'S NAME***

Attire

Children need to be dressed for active play. An extra set of clothing (shirt, pants/shorts, socks, and underwear) needs to be kept in your child's cubby (according to season). If a child still wears diapers or pull ups, diapers and wipes must accompany the child. Socks are required for indoor play. A bag or backpack is helpful to carry projects and school announcements on a daily basis.

Personal Belongings

Each child will be provided with a daily cubby intended for shoes, pillows/blanket, and change of clothes. We are not responsible for lost or stolen items. Therefore, please do not allow your child to bring personal items to the center.

Indoor Play Equipment

There are two play areas inside. One is designed for children 2 - 5 years of age and the other is designated for children 5 - 12 years of age. Kids Cottage™ will enforce these rules to prevent injury. Parents may sign a consent form for children 4 years of age to play on the big equipment.

Snacks or Meals

Provide a snack, lunch, or dinner for your child if they are present during a meal time. If your child has any known allergies, please provide this information. Please use ice packs as lunchboxes are not refrigerated. Pack healthy snacks and lunches. No heat up items allowed except for 6 pm dinner time. All food must be consumed in designated areas. A lunchbox that can hold a sippy cup is preferred. Please label all meal related containers with your child's name.

Diaper Service / Toilet Use

If your child is in the transition of being potty trained, please send him or her with extra pull-ups or diapers to prevent an accident where other children play. We will do our best to accommodate your efforts with consistent "potty breaks" and reminders. Toilet trained children will be allowed to use the restroom at any time and will be monitored depending on their age and ability level.

Naptime

At Kids Cottage™, we have an area designated for napping and soft sleeping mats are available. Our full day children nap from 12:30 - 2:30 pm. Napping is only for our full day children. Please bring a sheet, blanket, and pillow if needed.

Accident / Emergency

In the event of an accident, first aid will be administered and an Accident Report will be completed, signed by staff and parent, and filed. Information from the child's records will be used to obtain necessary emergency information. Kids Cottage™ will document all information pertinent to the injury. In case of an emergency, the center will call 911 and contact the parent/guardian.

Sign In / Sign Out Policy

Your personal/emergency information will be stored in our computer. Please keep this updated with your current information. Once stored, we ask that you sign your child in and out in your child's classrom every day and a photo ID may be required. A signature is always required at pickup.
