Registration Information

Child Enrollment

Parents wishing to enroll a child in a program with be given a registration packet of forms and materials which must be completed in full prior to the child being accepted into the program. All court orders addressing parental rights, such as custody and visitation rights, in regard to a child enrolled in a program must be presented to the administrators.

Application for Admission - Due to licensing requirements, we cannot allow online registration.  A paper application must be completed by the parent/guardian of the child. The application includes such information as the child name, address, date of birth, and allergies or medical conditions; parent/guardian name(s), contact information, place(s) of employment, and work schedule(s); parent/guardian’s marital status, custody arrangements, and restricted persons; emergency contact information; name of person(s) allowed to pick the child up; and physician name and contact information.

Emergency Medical Care Authorization - The parent/guardian of the child must sign this form in order to authorize our administrative staff to seek medical treatment for the child in the case of an emergency.

Immunization Records - The child’s immunization records must be obtained from the child’s physician and provided with the application for admission. Immunization records must be kept current. If a parent/guardian chooses not to immunize his/her child due to beliefs based on religious doctrine, the parent/guardian will be provided the Immunization Affidavit Certification of Objection to Immunization form to request exemption from the Department of Social Services.

Provider-Parent/Guardian Child Care Agreement - This form must be signed by the parent/guardian of the child and a member of our administrative staff to record agreement to rates, payment policies, schedules, additional charges, and any additional provider policies or parent/guardian requests.

Discipline Report Policy - This document outlines the procedures to be followed in the event discipline becomes necessary with a child enrolled in one of our programs. This document must be read and signed by the parent/guardian.
