The Day Care/ASAP children are expected to display respectful and responsible behavior. The staff discusses behavior with the children in terms of making choices that are “kind, fair, safe and responsible.” The parents/guardians will be contacted should inappropriate behavior issues arise and asked to participate in resolving the problem.
In every case, the staff will work with the family to resolve the issues at hand. A suspension or termination of enrollment is considered a last resort. However, when a child’s behavior becomes violent or presents a safety concern, the parents/guardians may be contacted to pick-up the child immediately and the process noted below may be accelerated.
In a case of chronic misbehavior:
The parents/guardians of Day Care/ASAP children must abide by the program’s policies and procedures, including but not limited to, registration procedures, sign-in/out policies, payment of fees, timely picking-up of children, and general safety and parking regulations. If parents/guardians fail to comply with the program’s policies and regulations:
- The Day Care/ASAP staff will contact the parents/guardians to inform them of the situation and ask for their assistance in resolving the problem.
- If the misbehavior continues, the Program Coordinator will contact the parents/guardians to explain the seriousness of the situation and enlist their assistance.
- If the problem persists, the Program Coordinator will notify the parents/guardians of a behavior plan, which will outline consequences for continued inappropriate behavior and may include suspension or termination of the child’s enrollment.
- Additional incidents could result in termination of the child’s enrollment.
- The Program Coordinator will contact the parents/guardians.
- If non-compliance continues, the family’s participation in the program may be suspended or terminated.
